Re: peugeot boxer tipper

I've been unsure what to get ours is tired now she's got a huge steel back on and I reckon we forget how well they do I was thinking of 7.5 toner but you got all the checks and that. I drove a transit 115 with a timberwolf 190 and chip on and it was canny impressive like. I think thats what wel get but was wondering about a crewcab but heard you lose a lot of space have you tried crewcabs mate?

Re: peugeot boxer tipper

yes, daily now run from 3.5t up to 7.5t ,the 6.5t give a payload of 3t,so 7.5t should be 3.5t to 4t
