    I'm in the market for a small van what do you use and if it big enough? I'm going to be a one man band and was thinking down the route of an Astra van or Peugeot partner size vans with a tank mount etc


    Sorry can't edit the post on iPad meant to say van

    Citroen Dispatch. 900kg payload, 2 side doors and 3 front seats. The stereo bangs out the tunes too ;)

    Partner/Berlingo with 400L upright is a good van mount entry setup but you can easily outgrow it if you work hard or do more than WFP like Smurf does.
    If you can afford it then a Transit SWB sized van is the way to go.

    u need to think about wat size tank ur guna have if a 350l or smaller then ide go for a combo but if u want a 500l get a berlingo with the 2.0l hdi as it will have a 800l payload or a connect high roof that will have a 900k payload ide faver the connect as its biger i think the combo is the most relible of the bunch an it drives like a car an is very good on fuel the 2.0l berlingo is not so good an the transit connect is also not that grate hope this helps
