    Very easy to take out and put in--after practice.

    Loving 6th gear---Motorway eater!!
    Taken mine out loads of times. Took over a ton of rubble to the tip after I removed a reed a plaster wall in the bedroom.

    A few months ago, came home from work, took the seats out and did a 340 mile round trip to Derby to pick up a three piece suite. (Reclining Armchair and 2 seater reclining sofa)

    Definately a superb vehicle even if mine it a thirsty 2.0 Mk 1 Petrol.

    Just need some motorways now !!!

    It still gives better MPG than my old 2 litre Mk2 Transit used to though. I probably wouldnt be complaining if I was still paying 1993 prices for fuel!

    The best solution for your needs is a Mercedes Vito Dualiner LWB. With two rows of seats and a "Van" in the rear with bulkhead its a great solution all round - but not cheap.

    If anyone want more info on this let me know (I work for Mercedes for my "day job").

    Hey guys

    Im looking at buying a new vehicle for transporting mobile disco equipment.
    This may consist of x2 parties/ functions in the one load.

    I dont really want to get a van and have been looking at an estate or the Vauxhall Zafira.
    Any comments or suggestions much appreciated
