Has anyone on here any experience towing/launching with 4x4 panel vans?
There are a few around and I wonder would they be an alternative to a commercial spec 4x4 for rib related activities?
Ford do a 4x4 Transit but the Mercedes Spinter 4x4 was the van that got me wondering.
On the upside, they're spacious and comfortable (unlike a LR 110).
They're probably a little more frugal with fuel.
They can tow 3500kg braked (with the right spec)
They can be specced with a switched low gear range (4x4 with low range adds about 6k to the price overall)
Downside, they have a 13m+ turning circle, but so does the LR
I'd look more
like a pikey
So, any thoughts or experiences?
