    Hello!

    Ive just got a new van and trying to search out what would be the safest way of securing a 250litre water tank
    inside the van.

    In my other van i just strapped it in with straps but wasn't to sure about it.

    Anyone got any ideas?

    would put some old lino floor, sheet of ply wood or something like it just to protect the tank bottom

    these are the ones i use, and only £5.21 each!

    just read it now, that would be a good idea
    ive just ordered a pond liner that im gonna surround the van floor and sides and slide the tank on top of that to keep the water out the front cab,
    bought some uni-bond masking tape to fix it in for next week when the liner comes
