    Hi all , this is my first post so thanks for taking the time to see me lose my "posting" virginity !!!
    I'm in the market for a new van , which saddens me as I really do love my Escort van , but it's old and tired and won't run forever.
    I love the height of the van as it's easy to get my ladders off ( I clean mainly traditionally with a backpack for the awkward ones) so don't want anything to high .
    Any suggestions ??

    Welcome Borntogolf. Citroen Dispatch, Peugeot Expert is the van to have. I love mine that much I could live in it :)

    Welcome borntogolf. I also have a Peugeot expert. These are higher than an escort, but I have a roll bar on the back and loading ladders is a piece of doddle

    Thanks fellas , was looking at a Peugeot Partner , which I believe is a little smaller than the Expert , so it should be ok

    That's what I had before my expert. Would still advise a roll bar, makes it so much easier

    If you're looking to stay low roof mate how about the Astra vans almost same size as a Escort.

    Oh yes, I do think those new style VW Caddies are a rather sexy van, if I were going for smaller van that would be quite high on my list of possibles.
