Load bay

Entry to the 11.5m3 load bay is via a sliding nearside door plus twin rear doors that can be opened to 90°, then to 180° if you press a button found on each of them that releases the stays.

The side and rear door apertures are wide and tall, making for easy loading, and loading is made easier still by a low cargo bed.

All the doors can be locked and unlocked by pushing a button on the inside of the driver’s door.

A full-height steel bulkhead with two lashing rings at its base separates the cargo area from the cab.

Three more lashing rings are positioned at waist height on the offside load bay wall, and face two more on the nearside. In our case the cargo bay was timbered out completely apart from the wheel boxes, and any floor-mounted rings were concealed under wood.

It’s good to see two lights, plus a shelf above the cab that is accessible from the load area.
