hi guys,

looking for some advice on van sizes was looking at getting a small connect/caddy more drawn towards a connect tho as they have solid doors/bulkhead im also unsure if a swb would be suitable as years went on, Anyone have a swb van and manage fine? I dont really like the look of the long ones & a bigger van might be too big. Whats your thoughts guys & whats better connect or caddy

thh, i hate these vans. too short, no room for tools and stock, front wheel drive and gearboxes are crap. get yersenn a hiace. ( not the new version pro-ace, that's a froggy version in disguise).

I drive a Vauxhall Vivaro which is also a Nissan Primastar and a Renault Traffic.They are Transit sized vans so plenty of room for your tools and materials.Heard an advert on the radio the other day for a Vivaro to lease. £259 deposit and then £259 per month for 2 years.Not too bad a deal if you want a brand new van.

I've got a Transit Connect SWB. Sometimes I think I want a bigger van, but with a bigger van I think I might fill it with more crap.

Nv200 Nissan. Solid doors, sliders either side and a steel bulkhead. If you can find a 110hp rather than 90hp they motor along.
Cheap as chips as well. Very good room in the back.

I got a small bipper(same as nemo and the fiat one), being i do 90% housebashing it works alright for now, ladders on roof rack. also my garage is quite small so might struggle to get anything bigger in.
If i get some contracts i have tendered for then i may have to upgrade for more space.

Mercedes vito for me. I bought that specifically to hopefully impress customers. I have the high top version so I can fit a full tower in it for jobs at height. It is no bigger than an MPV so is an easy drive. And as my friend who works on fleet maintenance said, "we hardly ever get call outs for mercedes"

Vivaro is very soon to become another Expert, Dispatch, Proace clone so if you want the current one there may be some deals around?
 
I drive a LWB Vivaro and still struggle at times to get everything in, I don’t know how anyone manages with the smaller vans like the Caddy but then I guess it depends if you do similar stuff day to day you don’t need as much on the van.
