    With only having a little Doblo, the van is jam packed when fully loaded. I fancy some proper racking, the type where ladders slide underneath and all that jazz. I've thought about making my own (I already have some I made myself transferred across from the Kangoo) but don't really have the time. Any recommendations on supplier? I would like it to be well fitting to the van etc, prepared to pay a good bit but don't want to go OTT.

    Proper racking is mega expensive; SORTIMO ONLINE-SHOP - https://www.sortimo-shop.co.uk/n/warengruppe?wgno=401&gclid=CjwKEAiA3qXBBRD4_b_V7ZLFsX4SJAB0AtEVy0yEOE6_ctyWJuyOvBQuWGZv4g3vEsF9PJxLv-XVjhoCqhrw_wcB

    I've had company vans properly fitted and they run into thousands.

    I bought some ex AA racking for a van when the company wouldn't pay but that wasn't cheap just for 1 section.

    Try some LOCAL Van PLY liners, they tend to make up their own eg. ; Ply Lining Kits for Vans | Wooden Van Racking Systems - MK Plylining - http://www.mkplylining.co.uk/

    Thanks snowhead, I've just contacted a local company asking if they can do as I need. Failing that it might be a case of doing it myself over the Christmas break.

    you might consider fitting a false floor for steps and things to slide under.

    Why does it do the 3 picture thing.
    Someone complained about it the other day?

    And they wont edit out.

    You might find some on eBay from a combo van if you have only looked for a doblo.

    There looks a handy place near me, waiting for a response but might be able to get the whole lot done for about 300 notes.

    About £500 all in, think I might just get the wood and do it myself when time allows.

    Yeah that's the type I can get round the corner from me. Not bad for the racking but the false floor was gonna be £220 plus the VAT....

    A glitch I'm aware of but not fixing yet. I'd only have to fix it again once we switch servers in a week or so.

    That vans tidier than my house @telectrix@telectrix - amazing to think you can create so much 'magic' from so little! Especially when you're not doing the bread run with those bakery baskets!
