    Can you guys reply to this thread with the make and model of the van you use please?

    I'm going to make a poll, but need some options to add to it.

    Perhaps leave out whether its LWB or SWB etc for now, just the van make and model should do.

    Thought it'd be an interesting thread for guys who are looking to swap their van to a different brand or whatever etc.

    No point down there pal. It'd ruin the engine ticking over in traffic all day.

    My new van delivered today. Swb. Fiat doblo. Needs a rack though as it's as bit short of room in the back but it's nearly new and years of fiat warrenty so no breakdowns. :smiley:

    Just read 'When you dead you dead' by Guy Martin and he swears by the Transit. Says he gets 100k miles per set of brake pads!

    I can't fault them, and it doesn't cost a fortune if something goes wrong

    Yeah they've got everything you'll realistically need as standard, I spend a lot of time in mine so I treated myself to the trend spec
