I suspect at £1k, you're going to be stuck with an ex parcel delivery Sprinter or a Mk 3 Transit. Avoid ex parcel vans if you can, or anything that has any cement residue in it. It'll be scrap pretty damn quick.
The other alternative if you can find a good one, is a Bedford/Vauxhall Midi. Sod of a thing to work on, and column change, but they go alright,not bad on fuel (ie, better than a tranny/Sprinter) if you don't boot them and they're Isuzu engines so go on and on. There's a surprising amount of room in them too.
Need spares,consoles,consumables,hire,training or even a new boat?
