I'm buying a small van - what would you recommend?

What's the best small van that will fit a trials bike (approx 6'2 long)?

Asked on 23 February 2018 by Karen Morgan

Answered by Dan Powell
Generally, mid-size panel vans are better for moving motorbikes with the wide and long load area being perfect for carrying one or two. However, if you really don't want something like the Mercedes-Benz Vito or Ford Transit Custom, the Volkswagen Caddy Maxi might suit. It has a load area that measures 2249mm long and 1532mm wide.
