I think if I had the budget ( ie not spent all my money on the Evo ) I would go Transporter

But with my budget I thinking Transit is the way to go..

Get 520 miles per £66 fill up, Connect was about 400 miles. Hopefully will hold value more than the Connect.
Connect was not very reliable, a few starter motors, leaf spring. So far no problems..

I’ve got a connect lwb on a 65 plate. It’s got everything in it. Nice to drive and all the creature comforts. Been reliable but the rear parking sensors need sorting after a valet!!!
And the air con needs a service. Biggest issue for me is the 1.6 lump just doesn’t seem to have the go despite 115bhp.
But a nice van to go to work in and looks the business.

So I guess the rear space is as long as a Transit Custom SWB but not as much height?

Done some digging. The Caddy Maxi has a load length of 2250mm and a SWB Transit is 2500mm . So 250mm difference which is bog all.. height is obviously a lot different (1m extra on Transit) but it comes at a cost of 2500 grand for an equivalent mileage/age van . Only advantage I guess with the Transit is I can build a shelf midway for double the loading area..

Anyway food for thought

They are basic to be fair. But in all honesty itís a work van, I donít do huge mileage so itís literally a work horse .


I thought Evos were stressful

Heya Mita I use a transit connect as my spare vehicle it's a ex BT van so had full service history and runs sweet for a 2012 with 91000 on it would definitely recommend 😊

Yeah, be about right mate. I find it fine for plumbing/heating.
It takes full 3m pipes with a front hatch in the bulk head. But unlike the custom you have to fold the front passenger seat down. It’s also supposed to be 3 seats but I wouldn’t try it
