    I currently use a Transit but need to get a second van. Must hold a 400 ltr tank and the normal everyday kit. Budget £5000 - £6000 plus the dreaded vat.

    My brother spent today viewing larger vans and most are high mileage or knocked about.

    Any one got any suggestions on van size, we are considering something smaller now in a bid to get something decent?

    The Caddy looks to be a tidy van. Can you get poles into them without too much trouble?

    No poles, but I did give a lift to a Lithuanian training buddy the other day, so close enough I suppose.

    I've got the Maxi and I'm amazed at the space it has in the back. How long are the poles you're carrying? I'll measure the back of it if you like.
