Was always intended to be a lot of room in it.  One of the main reasons for having it is we hate clutter inside the van.  Just want it all clear so that there is no mess around inside.

I see people pulling up sometimes and they cannot get in their van before they have to unload it.  I just want to be able to turn the key off walk inside and it is all ready.

On my old caravan towball scales I am 80 kilos on the tow ball and am happy with that.

Contact cement should hold the carpet in place very nicely, and has no sharp pointy bits.

Derek how does it feel towing with the van, I think I read you said it is a front wheel drive.
I have only towed a box trailer behind our old nissan  pulsar. I found I had to be careful as it could loose traction if not on bitumen, just spin and go now where.

Very conscious of that John.  On bitumen don’t even know it is there.

The Fiat does have traction control which should help but will still need to be very cautious in wet areas.

I have bought a set of maxtrax type tracks and a shovel. The tray are rated at 10 tonne each. Grin

That bladder in your trailer will come in handy after you leave Towitta and head to our Barossa Valley.
The wineries do a real good deal on bulk wine.  Grin Grin

You will need to run a hose and tap ready to go, up to the roof rack. Smiley
