Dandy Folding Caravan History

The ‘Dandy folding caravan’ was the brainchild of a Mr Harold Murray and launched at the 1965 Belle Vue Camping and Caravan Exhibition in Manchester.

With its unique all weather fabric, innovative design and construction it was an immediate success, hand built at the Dandy factory in Wigan, Lancashire.

During the 70s and 80s camping became more popular than ever, and Dandy went from strength to strength, soon becoming one of the most established and famous brands on the folding camper market. To this day it has it’s own ‘Dandy Owners Club’.

And now it enjoys another renaissance as a funky disco set-up!
