Time to fit out my Transit Van - Australia

Recommended Posts

Three years ago, before I even started climbing trees I bought a Transit van to get around the place (on the recommendation of a tree surgeon friend from Dorset.) A year later it became home to a harness, rope and hand saw. Now it's filled with 4 chainsaws, crates of climbing gear, crates of rigging gear, big shots, pole saws, rakes, blowers, fuel cans and smelly boots all spread over the floor.


I keep thinking to sell the big tranny (actually it's a short wheel base low roof - but still pretty big I reckon) and go the aussie way and get a Ute. Especially after I have to spend big money on repairs (Transit parts in Australia are exxy).


Only 50,000 miles since 2002 (the first owner did 20,000 in 7 years!) so it's in pretty good condition but it's about time to line the inside and throw in some shelves so I can better organise all this equipment. I've got a few ideas but wondering if anyone is will to post pictures of their van showing a neat line up of chainsaws, hanging ropes etc since there must be a few of you UK arborists using Transit vans for your arb gear.
