    What are you two going on about lol.

    If he is carrying 200L of water that is 200kg which in stone is..........32.

    So whats the difference between carrying 4 passengers and the driver?

    FYI payload is around the 500 - 650 kg.

    so depending on how you design it.

    Very possible

    I couldn't find the link. But a company called k systems on eBay has fitted out the vauxhall zaf with a system. I wouldn't buy his. But just saying its possible mate.

    But yeah a van would be better really.

    It's not just about the capability of the Zafira in carrying the weight, its everything else that goes with it. Can it handle the poles, pump, all the little additional bits.

    Plus, what will happen to the back of it if the tank springs a leak, or you knock a hose loose? Vans are designed to have electrics out of the way & have an easy clean rear load area. Not sure how a Zafira would handle 50 litres of water escaping into the back of it.

    I've got an old X reg escort 55 van with a 175 L tank in it. Does the job, bit slow but gets me there!

    Cheap to insure & cheap to run.
