Load bay

Rear entry to the cargo area is by means of twin doors that can be swung through 180° if you release the stays, which are rather stiff and awkward.

A sliding door provides nearside access.

Four floor-mounted load lashing points are fitted plus there’s one next to each of the wheel boxes.

A hefty-looking full-height steel bulkhead should prevent unsecured cargo from slithering forwards into the cab.

Equipped with two interior lights, our van’s load area was defended against minor damage by optional full-height hardboard panels along its sides and an optional tailored rubber cover for the load bed.

There was no protection for the vulnerable wheel boxes.
