What transport does everybody use?

Postby icleananycar » Mon May 26, 2014 3:34 pm

I'm currently knocking around in my Mazda and I squeezed everything in including my gazebo however I am looking in investing in a van to make my life easier and to I can slap advertising on the side of it. My only requirement is that it can fit my 5' gazebo pack in it and cost about £5k. I did think of the Bipper but I would have to lay said gazebo across diagonally so not big enough. Which vans have you got and is the back more than 5'deep? Thanks for any replies and suggestions.

TBH a van will give a more professional image too.

I'm still on my first van, a Citroen Dispatch. Next van will probably be a Vivaro. There are some cracking lease deals on the Vivaro now, with the new model coming soon
