Today is the day!

When my little boy left for pre-school this morning he said he was sad that I was selling my car, but by the time he got to pre-school he was excitedly telling everyone about the new van and how I was going to collect him in it this afternoon. Unfortunately the garage had problems getting hold of a suitable load rated tyre, so collecting has been delayed until 16:00, meaning I won't be able to pick my boy up. Looking forward to taking him for a spin later on though!

Ahhh the disadvantage of having Cannondale lefty!! Tbh we have rarely put bikes in the van even with it converted. The VW bike rack on a T5 is a joy to use and designed brilliantly. Everything mentioned about T5.1 Kombi 140 high line mentioned on this thread is right Only thing we changed was the leaking oem side windows

All excited then Craikey ? ?
Now youve just gotta hope the rain holds off long enough for you to get out and play with your new toy ?

Bike and van
by Lewis Craik, on Flickr

I got out in the van at the weekend - loaded up the family and my bike (which fitted in the back easily). Dropped the family off at the in-laws, then went off for a bike ride, before heading back to join them for the rest of the afternoon.

As I have moved on from being a "newbie potentially buying a van", I have created a thread in the garage section, which I will continue to update.
