    What do people prefer and why? I can see benefits of both so thought I'd get as many opinions as possible. Cheers guys.

    I had in on the back door in old van and now side door in this van.

    Overall i would say back door is best, and am planning on moving mine back when i get chance.

    Reason being on side door you have to have van facing the right way otherwise your pulling round the van, back doors you can park anyway same difference.

    Mines always been permantey in the van not tried lifting reel in and out this may solve the problem as you can put reel where you like, i might try it...
    But i think im going to route it under the van and have it on a winch roller at the rear centrally.

    Mine has two ports.
    One inside by back doors so if I'm on a small job and working near van I will work with door open as it's nice and easy.
    And one port under van at back great for big jobs when I can get the real out and point it in the direction and lock van.
    I have to side doors but space by them is were the tank is.

    fixed reels at either side of the van with the side doors! but then again I go one step further with mine to make it so much easier and quicker!!
    got them fitted on turntables so I can work out any door, plus one on a slider do it comes out the van and I then can turn it to face any direction!!!
