I have a standard vauxhall combo (2020 reg), I can wheel my Carp porter big boy into the back of it up a scaffolding board, it just fits with the backdoors closed.

I've got a Ford Kuga need a family vehicle. Got myself a heavy duty dog ramp take a couple of bits off the barrow, then straight in the back. Ramp slides under the barrow in the car.

Well they say beauty's in the eye of the beholder
I like a squarer boxier look, not at all keen on the rounded Berlingo/Vauxhall. I remember when I first saw a fully custom new face-lift Citroen Dispatch, that'd give the transporter a good run for it's money, tbh I'd have bought that over the Rifter but it's the Mrs car so I was vetoed! Thing is she wanted a small nippy number, was dead against another mini van at 1st, now I can't get to drive the bloody thing she likes it that much

I'd totally agree but the new one is no looker


As brilliant a vehicle as it is ... im not sure i would class any of the models a "looker"

It was a standard Caddy not the Maxi but with 2 inflatable boats (packed down obviously) 2 motors 4 batteries and two set of anglers kit for a week away meant we had to make sacrifices on some items that the Transporter would of accommodated, like I say I like to take the kitchen sink had to leave that out for a start

Get it mapped and an EGR delete, 40-50 bhp more, better torque and better fuel efficiency

Ice-cream vans, they're the future.

Leccy barrow through the backdoor 99's and Rocket lollies out the side door down the pond in the summer👍

Yeah, ford ranger here. I love it! Expensive and thirsty but fun to drive. I do keep the rods in the front though as I donít have the cab back. You would get a barrow made up in the back if you had the cab but it wouldnít be very easy pushing it up or taking it down.

ive had 3 Berlingo Multispaces in the past ..... Swallows a barrow (handles removed) .... Ive also had 4x4's, Estates, Sports cars and performance saloons ..... If i had to have only one vehicle again it would be the Berlingo ... not the coolest, nor quickest but I loved them. The most versatile vehicle on the market imo
