Re: wanted - cheap bigdeck spraydeck with small waist

thankyou...but it really has to be a big-deck and not just a keyhole deck that can stretch....its for someone who struggles to put their own deck on currently, so needs to go on easily.
if it is a big-deck size it would be perfect

Re: Van Insurance

I don't think can insurance no claims will transfer for comercial van insurance...at least i didn't seem to be able to.
Also beware what you do to the van...if you do much of a conversion towards a camper then most regualr van insurers will not cover you.
