Thanks Peter, nice van although half the mileage it is double the price of the Iveco for same year.
I can see why you are building your own, you get what you want that way.
I know the Mercs 90's engines 4.25's are bullet proof are these 2008 ones the same technology?
I wanted to get away from the Sprinter 2.7.
Whatever the next van I,m sure it will be van conversion. A class hard to access, in fact impossible to get to the engines, Windscreens a fortune, in fact everything is a fortune.
I want to just take it anywhere for work, bodywork, windscreens, no leaks or seams on the roof or sides.
The problem with most van conversions is that they are ten a penny all the same, loft insulation or rockwool stuffed into the sides/roof, underslung tanks, unwinterised, water pipes underneath. Winterisation consists of power hungry 12v bloody heaters. Have looked at loads and they do nothing for me.
Have been to loads of companies and they are basically the same.
