    well, my people carrier that I've been using to cart my wfp trolly around has gasped the last breath.
    I have a small £1500-2000 budget for a suitable van so its going to be an older one.
    of the vans that you have used what are the ones i should be looking for and models to avoid.
    I am a one man windy and expect to go through no more than 250ltrs in a day.
    Cheers!

    Transit connect... Bulletproof

    Of course everyone will just big up there own van,

    But judging by reviews and general consensus a short wheel base transit connect would be superb for a small system...

    That's a beast of a deal. Transit connectS are the deal. But you'll struggle to get one you can keep for a while for under 2k

    Berlingos are good and if you get the right one they have a 900k payload
    So any berlingo would take 250l of pure
