It has a rear lounge but no flipping rear window!! WTF?

I think I would need a Luton as well to take two folding bikes, inflatable Dinghy / Kayak.

I wont be buying a new one though, too much depreciation and hassle.

Damp doesnt bother me. As long a you get regular hab checks it shouldnt be too hard to keep in check and remedy.





Yes thats the one.


The reason they aren't popular mind is because you can't hardly access the garage due to the rear lounge framework.

So no storage for bikes in there then either but I can never store anything too heavy in a rear garage anyway though due to the scooter being on the back, need to counter balance the weight which is why a luton is preferred.

I still cannot get my head around why they didnt put in a rear window. The lounge looks lovely but would you want to sit in one with no rear window to look out of? Bonkers.

It's the right time to do it - there is increased activity in the housing market in Spain and prices are (finally) rising

Cheers

Hideous innit, you could whack a Seitz in the back wall easily enough, it's only a hole with a window in it.

Strange, or not so, how we are all different
I would never have a rear lounge, I like to make use of the two front seats, and although our present van has a rear window, I will probably blank in off. (Internally!

Although this new one and the last one had front lounges we do like to have a rear lounge as then you can have two totally different views, mountains out the back lake out the front, it also gives you chance to get a bit further away from eachother, say one reading & the other having a nap.

However front lounges do seem to feel a bit more airy and roomy.

Our ideal layout is a front lounge(long sofa) and a rear transverse double over a garage.
Its getting that in as short a van as possible thats the tricky bit which is why I would love to get my own design panel van converted, but too expensive to do and the resale would be rubbish.
