    Nice job Chris, did you make the hose reel plate / holder yourself?

    it is bolted through van floor. was little bit of a pig. had to drop exhaust, and fuel tank. but my friend has a ramp so made it relatively easy.

    Nice one, yeah you won't look back now, the van mounts are a lot easier than backpacks!

    i did make it. not amazing but it does the job. forget who it was now on here made something similar to clip the hose reel down thought it was good idea so i copied that idea.

    I did something similar, the van floor is ply lined, I then got another piece of ply and screwed that to the other ply. I then screwed 3 quick release 22mm pipe clips to the ply and clipped the hose reel to that.
