Busy in the back of the van
Been busy sorting the back of the van out at last. Its a LWB Vivaro crewcab and I like to be able to just wheel the bikes in and out without having to put wheels etc on.
So its been pannelledand had a false floor built with two 1000cm drawers accessible from the rear on 35kg runners. The front is accessable via two hatches. It was then carpeted and the floor vinyled in order to make it easier to clean.
Just waiting on more carpet to do the roof and the rest of the rear doors.
The floor si at the height it is in order to be able to wheel the bikes in, any higher, ie over the wheel arches, and they wouldn’t fit. The bikes are then strapped on either side. Usually have a minimum of four bikes.
The two smaller cubbie holes either side at the rear hold spare straps, tubes etc.
One of the drawers hold all of the helmets, camelbaks etc that are normally used. The other holds various items including small cooker, brew kits , tarp and poles etc.Posted 2 years ago
I will see if I can find some of the nets for the rear doors as it will make use of the otherwise wasted space.
The idea is is to have the most used things in the drawers and handy and the least used stuff, i.e. bike packing equipment in the front compartments.
Have already placed speakers by the rear seats (hence the boxes on the sides) and have just ordered replacement speakers for the front.Posted 2 years ago
The bikes in drawers sounds like a good idea but at times I have five or six bikes in the van. Hence the current layout.
I have found the nets and ordered a pair for the rear doors.
Am currently debating whether to carpet the crew cab divide on the other side (ie where the seats are) to match as well.Posted 2 years ago
