whats the strangest thing you have had in your van ????

Post by retro on Wed Oct 29, 2014 12:31 pm

So until now all my posts have been a bit wingy and asking for help ( of which I really appreciate )

So thought it was time to post something a bit more light hearted

Space in these vans always amazes me !!! had king size bed and mattress in it, Cooker, Pub bench, Shed, 3 seater sofa and 2 seater at same time ( with arms off !! ) but by far my best was a just under 9 foot church pew !!!!

I am sure there will be loads more odd things in my van...
Some of you know I (till june this year) run a bikers club? Last year some time I get a call to assist in a club matter & that i needed to pick up a bunch of members & hoon it back to the club house.. I turn up, no rear seats as no time, bundled 5 big back patch lads in to the back of the van (laid down) & another in passenger seat... As i am hooning as best i can with substantial weight in the back a small voice asks "I haven't even started fighting yet, how come i can see stars?". After instructing the load to shift weight in to the upcoming corner I let the poor chap know hes looking out the rear sun roof!
Arrive at destination to find it was just a false alarm, poor guys had to bundle back in van for a sedate drive back.. lol!

I picked up a group of 5 America stray hikers in the lake district a couple of years back. They had come down the wrong side of the mountain and needed a lift over the Honister pass http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Honister_Pass. There was already my wife and me and 3 Irish setters in the van plus the 5 large Americans with equally large rucksacks. I don't know how the little van managed the 1 in 4 gradients needless the say we stayed in 1st gear most of the way up, but coming down was equally fun affraid

I did wonder if it was coin related from the dished collector but thought the collection hopper a bit on the small side for a commercial application. Well done for the effort and keeping us guessing - maybe the 'reveal' came a bit soon though (quiet, Oldie, don't upset the aged!)
