You need a bag of sand to get a good one.

But not every van for a grand will be a good one.

You can spend £1500 and pickup a dog.

You can spend £600 and score a gem!

exhaust cllectors rusted and dodgy suspension bushes.

Hello, welcome along Smile

Rust, overheating, exhausts, overheating, overheating, overheating........ 

And no, the tax on a post 2001 isn't £200





It's £225......


But, bikes fit in them Smile
