When i go for insurance my reg brings up "Transporter 1200 LW TDi", or something like that.

To my knowledge mine is known as a "T4 Transporter 2.5 TDi Dropside 88".

Is there a difference....?

I dont know if you would call it a long wheel base... I think they make a longer dropside than mine.

What is the 1200 all about ?
