    in a nutshell liam,neither would be good really,the vivaro,looks nice/has all the fancy halfords tat added to it-although hasn't had the windscreen mod done to it,on a 53 plate it'll be time for new injectors-expect to pay £800 ish for them,new clutch didn't mention a new slave cylinder,when that goes its another new clutch
    the stystem has shiny lights etc but has the most expensive pre filters to replace and after spending all that money why didn't the owner lash out £100 for a split relay?
    the smaller fiat has di only so you'd have to spend more money on an ro to make it economical
    just my opinion,you can buy a very good brand new tank,installed with controllers etc for under 2k,poles and hosereels are cheap enough to buy new,that would leave a good amount of you budget left for a newer van and an ro stystem

    You haven't mentioned if you got a small or a large rounds.

    If you just are starting out then I say start small, get the best van you can get. I got a ford connect lwb 2011.

    If you are just starting out then get

    1 RO/DI System (£180 up to £330)

    2 resin (i use tulsion... About 70 quid)

    3 Gardiner pole (come with free brush head & hose)

    5 Gardiner backpack( £ 85 plus vat)

    6 10 x 25l jerry can (about £35.. Seach for the best deal)

    7 Go and clean some windows, once u make some money u can upgrade

    Each to their own etc, but id always go for the bigger van. You can fit a tank and still have enough room for a trolley and barrels and backpack. Always best to have to much space than not enough I.m.o

    Jake got 650l tank and got the same van as me.

    I think a ford connect lwb would be a good starting out van for liam.

    I think Jake mentioned he a one man band, he doesn't fill the tank right to the top.

    He carry about 500l of water, he got a video of it on YouTube.

    Where is he anyway? He not been on here for while!
