  1. CAK Tanks - any good?

    T5 Conversions
    I know there's previous posts on this forum about underslung CAK tanks with many saying they were pretty good. But now we're a few years down the line I wondered if those opinions still stood an they lasted the test of time. I have a slim conversion and struggling for water tank storage space so...
  2. Tip for Kombi rear under seat storage

    Having being reading a lot of your posts over the last few weeks before taking the plunge and getting a secondhand Kombi. I thought it was only fair to give something back. Found this box up at Bunnings( aka Homebase) today...
  3. Fridge storage

    General T5 Chat
    Hi all, I recently bought a Waeco top loading fridge and loving it! Great investment so far. Wondering if anyone has figured out an ingenious way of securing it that doesn't involve wedging it into the back so it doesn't slide around. Anyone using the cargo fixing rings? Any particularly good...
  4. Using top bed rail for storage box

    I have a Bilbo fixed roof conversion on a T4. We never use the upper bed option, as there are just two of us. But there is a nice lip around the top of the interior that would have been used for the bed base. Has anyone used this for a storage shelf or box, fitting across to the lip at both...
  5. Bed options - not carrying passengers

    T5 Conversions
    I'm relatively new to T5 ownership, a build thread is on the cards soon! T: Basically, the van has been cleaned, soundproofed, insulated and carpeted and I'm starting to plan out the interior. I'm after a bed that maximises storage space and is ideally 3/4 width (it's a SWB van so I want...
  6. Wheel arch box storage

    T4 Conversions
    Another feature I thought would be a nice addition. Canny for storing the odd pint of milk/eggs or whatever while on the road.

  9. Fitted underfloor storage in my T4 (pic heavy)

    T4 Conversions
    Hi, Thought I'd show what I've been up to since buying my T4 last month. Only cost about £85 in total. Bought the white plywood in the UK from a timber merchant, after having had a look through his off cut bin and nabbed several 8ft lengths of 143mm wide x 18mm birch faced play. Got that home...
  10. Nearside door storage

    Hi, does anyone know where I can pick up a door card for the nearside of my T4 which has a storage pocket? I'm looking for exactly the same as the driver's side, so my better half doesn't have to fill the top of the dash with all her clutter (ahem) I mean necessary items.

  12. Extra storage idea!

    T5 Conversions
    Hi all, Here is my carpeted door panel, with extra storage pockets (every square cm counts right!) I am carpeting my van at the moment, and was inspired by the Kiravans door store. I tried copying the Kiravans layout on my door panel, but it turned out to be flimsy and pretty rubish... Mark...

  14. Place to store a wet Wetsuit

    General T4 Chat
    Hi folks, as any of you water users know, putting on a soaking wet wetsuit which has been lying in the bottom of a plastic tub is not a fun experience. So I'm thinking of making a tall rear cupboard where I can hang my suit out of the way, and then hopefully with the addition of small fans...
  15. sideways bed with under storage

    Anyone know of anybody who makes a seat\bed combi frame that goes in a T5 length ways (front to back) and has storage underneath ?
  16. Anyone live in theirs?

    T4 Conversions
    Has anybody converted to something they've been able to 'live' in for more than a few weeks? I'm trying to seek out the perfect van to convert and be proud of but that is spacious enough to live comfortably for a couple of months at a time while out traveling on a budget.. I'd love to see some...

    I have recently fitted Caravelle rails and triple bench seat to my SWB van and am struggling to find a convenient storage solution.

  20. Cab Storage - or lack thereof!

    General T5 Chat
    Having come from a Caddy Life to a Shuttle, the single biggest disappointment is the lack of decent storage in the cab. A bit of a surprise for me given that the vehicle is so much bigger! The glovebox is small, the lower door bins are difficult to reach, there's no armrest box, and there's...
