    Transit van question.

    I have a 110 T300 trannie, 07 plate, and there is a slot on the dash just above the gearstick. What is it for? It is not part of the radio so I doubt it is for mini CD's and I think a tacho would have its own slots.
    It is 2-3 inches wide so It can't be for SD cards or the like.
    TIA.
    Paul.

    Thanks guys, it all makes sense now, and I thought it might be something useful.
    With the fold out picnic table, cup holders, pen sections and document holders, this is like a mobile office. Truly a well thought out vehicle for a one man business.
    As this is now a campervan I will use the space for maps, tourist information, notepads and pornography.

    Depends how tall you are

    Mk7 has a integral beam both sides as part of the frame about 600mm above the deck which is ideal as a position to fix a
    bed/platform. Upto about 5'8" it's fine and past that need to go a bit wider and sleep at an angle

    Heavy stuff goes underneath over the axle and the area accessed by the side loading door is open space.

    Simplest mod of all for transits with the very common tie-down rails fitted is to make two plywood framed platforms
    of about 600mm that fit tight widthways. This is simply wedged in so they sit on top of the rails and the framing
    means no need for a center support. Needs to be in two bits as one whole bit is too much to handle. For vans that are
    used midweek this is a very quick conversion for dive trips.

    Sort of what Tel said. Cooker, fridge etc in middle, bed raised over the rear area. A bit of cupboard space under the bed accessible from the living area. Plenty of space under the bed accessible from the rear doors. That's where the gas goes along with the cassette toilet during the day.
