    You can buy things from window cleaning equipment suppliers, but to be honest, you can buy metal 'hooks' of various sizes from places like b&q which will be much cheaper. Mount them on the inside of your van, on the sides. If you dont have a long enough van, you may have to modify a pipe holder and put it on a roof rack. Or make a hole or two in the top of your bulkhead and have the end of your pole sticking through. Thats what i used to do in my lwb transit connect, but now i have my big pole in the back on the sides, but at an angle (otherwise it wouldnt fit). window cleaner pal of mine has a vw transporter, he made up a frame to fit over the top of his tank with brackets on it to hold his poles. There are a few options, you just need to decide which siuts you best.

    Yep, I bought a length of 6" wide drain pipe from B&Q for a tenner. Think it was 4m long, cut it in half & cable tie it into inside of van roof. Perfect![hr]
    I did have the smaller width pipe, but I found my pole hose was bending due to not enough room and was splitting, so went for the 6" stuff, problem solved.

    Another option go to a local steel fabricator show them what you want you'll be surprised at how cheap they might do it for
