Seats in panel van?

Post by leopard_pagan on Tue Mar 19, 2013 6:50 am

Was pondering if I can't get a MPV if I can bolt the MPV seats in the back of the panel van?
There is the whole insurance side too.

I don't think a panel van has the captive nuts in the floor to just bolt mpv seats strait in.

dont know if the van has the holes to bolt the seats in, mine has a wooden floor in it but when i was looking at the dvla website it said that the difference between panal van and mpv was how it looked from the outside, i read that as if its got the windows it can be classed as an mpv?!

As far as I know, the panel van does have the holes, I know mine does. Don't know if it applies to the 1300s though.

so theres a van on flea bay 1.3 thats had seats fitted. i Messaged the seller asking about what he had to do insurance wise/V5.
see if he gets back to me. kinda gives a hope.. even thought about fitting seats & swapping the doors for MPV set..
would one have to take the van to a DVLA station to get it checked?... kinda like custom built bikes/trikes..

TBH the guy sounds a bit of a fanny, he's sick getting messed about but too greedy to name a price? Rolling Eyes

Just tried the cute rats with a Hijet, said it had 4 seats and a crewcab bodystyle, all companies quoted on that description?
