    I'm having second thoughts about getting a VW Caddy. The reason being, I don't think they are long enough to fit poles in. I might be wrong, can someone clarify?

    Does anyone have a Mercedes Vito and is there owt to look for ie rust, mileage, year, engine etc?

    Thanks.

    @ bluemonkey, I got a clx 4 haha, and a 27". I'm looking to get a 40/45 footer in the Spring. Just need to be certain on the space. I'd go for the VW out of the 2.
