/ Van Buying Advice
Planning on buying a van, got about £3000 to spend. Does anyone have any recommendations on vans at this price? I've looked at Transporters but I think I'd need to spend a couple more thousand to get a decent one. Vitos seem like the next best option but I've heard that the older ones can be bad for rust. Does anyone have any experience of this? I know that Transporters are renowned for doing a lot of miles but what about Vitos?
Any advice will be gratefully received.
At work we run a couple of Vitos and 3 Renault traffics (vauxhaul vivaro, Nissan primastar).
For my money the traffic is perfect.
Traffics are good but the Primatstar is the same van but often cheaper as it isn't as well known or popular.
Also depends on what size of van you want, the bigger VW than the transporter (sorry can't remember the model name for the mo) brings vw reliabilty but cos it isn't the fashionable base for camper conversions it is much cheaper. This is what I am likely to go for when I move on from my current T4.
have a vito and a transporter. love the vito more refined.
Loads of helpful advice, cheers guys.
I should mention that this will be to convert to a camper and probably only used at weekends.
