Anyone use a CREW VAN (5seats) with reach and wash system in the back?

Just found myself a crew van , Vauxhall Vivaro 5 seater, the dealer told me it wouldn't drive properly with a 650 litre reach and wash in the back! He said that weight would need to be in the middle of the van (where the rear seats are) not the back. Any of you chaps got a set up similar?

A local guy had one set up like that, and it was always dragging its arse... I don't think a 650l right at the back would any good for the suspension... I have wondered whether having a custom tank which slid partially under the rear seats would bring the weight forward a bit and mean it was more evenly distributed...

The other option to consider as your tds is 72 ppm is instead of having a large tank in the van is to have a smaller tank (say 250 upright instead) in the back. Then you have a choice of running a di on demand trolley that you hook up to an outside tap at jobs or work directly from the tank.

 

Many use this method in Austrialia & the states so they don't need to carry large tanks of water about.

 

You could diy a di only 250 van mount for next to nothing and a on demand di trolley too.

 

If my water reading was that low then that is what I would be doing for sure as most of my jobs I have access to an outside tap so I would have an endless supply of pure water to do full exterior cleans etc.
