    Screw wooden battens to the floor around where the wheels will sit.

    I like to move my stuff about in the van but still is a good idea though if you want it to have a particular place to store it. Best also to strap it down too so doesn't fall over when driving about or hit you in the back of the head when doing an emergency stop :D

    Think the vac is over 25kg and could be top heavy, don't actually know yet, but given its worth and vital function, I will prob use the octopus and another four bungees and err on the side of caution, maybe even build the batten idea, It's worth checking the local wilko though ta
