double cab or single cab pickup?

Recommended Posts

yeah a king cab would be the way to go but they seem to fetch a high price.

i would take what ever comes my way but think i would prefer a double cab so i can make some decent tool storage and have somewhere to hang my coat up :D

I have a double cab and will never have another. Sure I can put a good mess in there but in 5 years it's been occupied by a passenger for 5 days and it is LESS comfortable than a super cab! - the wasted space under the rear seat + in the super cab the seats are lower down so a passanger can sit or lie sideways. There is more room in the super cab than the double cab - we measured it!

like i said tdc, at least in my budget, a super cab seems to demand a higher price.

i was looking around for one a month ago and the cheapest 55 plate l200 clubcab i could find was 5k!!!

thats pretty much 5x my budget!

but that would be with in the OP's budget.

Thanks everyone,

I think I'm pushing towards double cab and then taking the seats outof it in the back, maybe not straight away but it could be an option, that way you could even store rakes, forks etc as well as everything else you may need for a days work. Some people will think that's stupid but I will have to make do until I can maybe afford desperate vehicles for work and social hours. Cheers

I have got a 2000 l200 singel cab carnt fault it al all, not to bad mpg good off road only thing that can be a pain is the turning circle is a littel tight. Agree with what they are saying about storage but I've always got around it.

Neither; Supercab, Extra Cab, King Cab depending on what make you're talking about. Tool storage space and occasional passenger carrying capability.

 

I couldn't find a mk5 hilux extra cab so I went for a double cab,

£4,300 126.000 miles fish

And it hasn't let me down yet now has 138,000 miles only needed a set of front discs and pads

And like you I'm only 22

This is my old beast: Supercab...

 

Good access and space behind the seats..

 

Good compromise between single cabs and double:

 

4x adults is a squeeze :)

 

Possibly a bit out your budget but the L200 Long bed or. LB is probably going to be my next motor.....

 

Happy motoring :)
