    im not sure if this is the right place for this question but as its wfp window cleaning i guessed its this. basically im selling my car and upgrading soon but what van should i get??? nothing to big like tranny or sprinter. im interested in small vans like the vito, expert with a side door aswell. just want to get a good van that isnt going to have problems down the line. i read the vito has problems with rust another site i saw they said the fiat scudo ( same as expert i think ) has wiring problems being a fiat. what vans do you lot have and what would be ideal for carrying just a 600L tank and a few poles etc. ;)

    Im looking into a lwb vivaro / primastar crew cab .

    Good quality vans and chain driven so no nasty cam belts to break .
    What you got to think of is the weight you are carrying , with a 600 litre tank that alone equates to 600kg
    So you will need at least a 2.5 ltr diesel engine to get some poke behind ya unless you dont mind toodling along .
