    Can you guys reply to this thread with the make and model of the van you use please?

    I'm going to make a poll, but need some options to add to it.

    Perhaps leave out whether its LWB or SWB etc for now, just the van make and model should do.

    Thought it'd be an interesting thread for guys who are looking to swap their van to a different brand or whatever etc.

    Just read 'When you dead you dead' by Guy Martin and he swears by the Transit. Says he gets 100k miles per set of brake pads!

    I got to meet Guy Martin early May this year, he's a very strange character, in person.

    I always liked the ford vans, but a good friend of mine runs a commercial repairs center & van dealership. He kept urging me to go Mercedes he reckons they are the most reliable van on the market. Eventually I gave in, best decision I ever made.

    Apparently he doesn't really like speaking to the public much, according to his book. He even goes events now where people wont expect him. And does cycling races in places people wont go (in the highlands etc) so that he doesn't get hounded. He doesn't do the TT since he got a bit famous because people seem to expect him to sign autographs and he isn't there for that, so he says.

    Edmundsons have a LWB Mercedes Sprinter - I make use of that.
    In my last job I used a Mazda BT-50 when the gardeners weren't using it.
