No, although folk do use them they are unsuitable for use as van system. You have to remember that when full it will weigh 1000kg and strapping it into place is not strong enough to secure it. Also as the tank has no baffling it will be very unstable when driving. 

Keep your eyes peeled on eBay secondhand tanks and frames come up regularly if cost is an issue. I picked up a 650l purefreedom crashtested frame and tank for £200.

Hi unless your planning to have a very large van this tank would kill your payload limit as not many medium size vans cover a tonne and you then have to add the rest of your equipment ladders ect. Also this type of tank would severely affect your driving and handling of van . You really need something that's baffled.
So this tank would only really not be well suited to your needs in my opinion.
If you let us know what vehicle you have or are thinking of getting I could probably suggest the best size tank as could many others on here.

For that size van you would probably want to be looking at 500/600 to allow for the extras this would give you some room if you wanted to add a helper or have a 2 man team aswwll . I use a 400l tank and does me more then enough most days... I would always recommended getting a frame to fix it in and im sure if you did a Google 600l baffled tank with frame you would find plenty available. Hope that helps mate. Having a baffled tank will really make a difference to your van on the road staying on the road and stopping when you want it to .

No worries mate I use an aqua valve to save water as well it might not seem like much but just turning water off in between windows can save you a few you water and with 2 guys could be a few litres saved .
Don't know if your just starting out but you will probably notice a big difference once you get the hang of it and get the initial cleans out the way in water consumption as well .. I've not long in the game but happy to answer any questions if you can't find the answer on here or can't find it at least;)

I use a 1000 litre IBC in my vivaro with no issues what so ever, yes you get a little rocking as the water level drops down, nothing major,
i also set it all up myself to run two man,
You must ensure you buy a van to carry the payload, some viv’s/traffics are fine and aren’t over payload limit even with two men, kit and water full,
