    If I was to buy a van again and had the money I'd fancy an electric one, guy on here speaks well of them

    I'm trying to work out if a connect/berlingo size van is better because of insurance, tax and fuel or a transit size, bit more on running costs but more space. Although I hadn't considered electric I'll have a look at them now

    Do you have any space left for a gutter vac or pressure washer for example

    Caddy... Big enough for reach and wash, not high enough to be a pita loading ladders, and a bit of space left over for vacs or a small jet wash or whatever... And easy to manoeuvre/park... Or the smaller transit connect, as I think some of them have a higher payload...

    Must
    I don't have these things aboard, but there is some fair space for my other gear . And a good space above the tank . My payload is 950 kg.

    From my knowledge 1.9 caddy for absolute reliability, my partner used the same amount as my 2.0 vivaro I'm driving now

    I quite fancied a bipper but couldn't work out how I'd fit anything in there so went with a transit connect. Have you got any pics of your setup?
