    Which may be easier than you think. One of my brothers recently acquired a T5 and it has rapidly become the preferred family car (2 small kids). Sister-in-law's view on vans is now 'why were we driving cars for so long?'

    Lucky Phil! I'm surprised he didn't get out, drag you from the car and beat you up..

    Just put a deposit down for a Citroen Berlingo Multispace. You can easy get 2 boards, 4 sails and 2 kids in by removing one of the rear seats and flattening the passenger seat. The sails can go on the funky internal roof rack, or under the boards. That means I can now easily leave my kit loaded all the time durng windy spells which in turn means more TOW .

    I thought it was nicer to drive than the doblo, but I would have been more than happy with one of those too.

    For anyone who wants something more car like, you can flatten the front passenger and one rear seat in the new C4 Picasso to allow you to easily carry boards. I was tempted to do this with a quiverrack for sails, but it was out of my price range. Unbeleivable fuel economy on that car though so worth a look if you do high mileage.

    2011 5 Oceans 4m 4 Batten. Good condition. 180.
    2008 Demon (5 Oceans) Custom 4.6m 5 Batten. Well used, but in good working order with no rips or tears. 80

    don't know if it came up already, but I'm using a Scenic, which can have its rear seats removed and the front flattened. If anyone has questions about it I'll be happy to reply.
