Well here it is - my new home!

It's an Iveco 35-10 TurboDaily Extra-Long Wheelbase model. 2.8 litre Turbo Diesel, with 5 speed box and power-steering. Compared with the Merc, it is obviously narrower, lower and (very slightly) shorter. Apart from the more convenient size, it is lighter, faster, more economical on fuel and much cheaper to insure.

I was initially considering buying a low mileage ex-Parcelforce vehicle from the auctions. The main disadvantage of those is that there is no bullkhead behind the driver, or even a passenger seat.

This one has three seats in the cab with a factory fitted bulkhead behind them and additional storage area in the roofspace above. It also has the added advantage that it is white, of course.
