Defiantly a reverse camera. Have you ever tried reversing into a tight gap in London. Also will allow me to reverse the van to within an inch of a wall when loaded (without knocking the wall down). Can get camera and screen on eBay for less than £25.

Thanks Mario. I have a 8x2 plank I am going to use, just got to cut it down from 2.7 mtrs long.

I insulated the roof of my Renault Traffic with 2 rolls of silver faced 3mm thich insulation I bought from Aldi and 6 rolls of double sided tape from the pound shop for under £25 all in. Very neat, works no drips and no noticeably loss in height.

Sidestand UP if you are lashing down....or you will risk a bent or broken stand, or a hole in the floor.

I use one of these for loading the bike in the Vito, straps neatly against the side behind the wheel arch when not in use

Usefully someone gave me a £30 amazon gift card!

Looking to insulate mine and was considering something like this

But have to be very careful about losing height inside, I already have to use a strap to compress the forks when loading. It does just fit through the door without it but not enough room for my knuckles too!!!
