One of the threads has reminded me we bought some Axle stands after we had a problem with the tyre deflating over winter, how many of you use axle stands when your Dandy is not in use. Our Axle stands were bought from Netto for £4.95 two years ago so you can get them cheap enough and they are also good if you are doing any work on your Dandy.

If you don't use them is there anything you do to protect your tyres or do you think it's not necessary.

I never used axle stands when I had a caravan on my drive previously and I had it stored there for 17 years with a change of tyres after 5 years as they both went on the same scottish holiday within 50 miles of each other and I only had one spare, but was fortunate enough to have the second one go as we pulled onto the campsite and had a trolley jack to enable me to get both tyres replaced at once. The area on my drive is sheltered behind a wall so the tyres are not caught in the direct force of the wind which might help. Will change my tyres after 5 years regardless as do not expect to be as lucky next time.
