Just about manage in that ;););)
Mind it would probably be £10k less at a different dealers. But then it's just sour grapes 'cos I can't afford it, never mind the HGV Al would say just go take your test :giggle:

No I keep getting invites to go but never been.. They seem to me to pressurise people at shows and I know N+B owners would rather buy in Germany and take their vans to the N+B factory for warranty or a service, much cheaper than TW.

Woweeeee!
I would love it BUT, looking back on all the places we've gone to this year, especially in Spain we would only have been able to get into a handful of them and thereby miss out on too many of the absolute delights visited.
Therefore, no thanks!
But a Beaut!

Yes very nice spec... shame the van is too heavy.

Is the floor raised between the front two seats? wouldn't like that with the arms on the sofas as you can't sit in those front seats with your legs up on the sofa if that is the case.

Seating has to be super flexible, no good only being able to sit one way around, same goes for the bed IMO

the raised floor between the front seats is the 'dog box'-----engine cover.
there is so much I love about this van --(wouldn't I love another decent size engine)-----but not the length/weight or the price---but to be fair that van would fetch that sort of money in Germany being on the M.A.N. chassis.-----very desirable combination.

I wonder if that old Cummins lump could be replaced with something highly tuned and European with less pots? Probably get some extra storage in free space.

Kidding, Nigel, Kidding!! :)
