    Just found myself a crew van , Vauxhall Vivaro 5 seater, the dealer told me it wouldn't drive properly with a 650 litre reach and wash in the back! He said that weight would need to be in the middle of the van (where the rear seats are) not the back. Any of you chaps got a set up similar?

    A local guy had one set up like that, and it was always dragging its ****... I don't think a 650l right at the back would any good for the suspension... I have wondered whether having a custom tank which slid partially under the rear seats would bring the weight forward a bit and mean it was more evenly distributed...
