Most manufacturers make small vans, usually big enough to accept a standard pallet in the load space.

Sounds very similar to what a local joiner has. I will have a look next time I'm passing, however I think his is a Suzuki

Could it be the Suzuki Carry Van.

If so ,thanks to Diver One.

or a Volkswagen Caddy Maxi?

We used to have them at work....forgot about that. Also,the Bedford rascals are the same vehicle

i think the joiner I mentioned has the newer version

the old ones were no good if you are over about 5'9" as the roof is low and you have to slump in the seat to see through windscreen. Also seat position is fixed and quite uncomfortable

 

the really early ones were same as in the Sooty show. The only reason we had them was my late father saw an advert that said "£2000 discount if you trade in a working vehicle" so we towed the knacked vans to just around here he corner from the dealership then 'limped' it around the corner in clouds of smoke

Just googled them .....I think the joiners is a Suzuki Carry ( NOT Super Carry )

hello, thanks for replies, sorry not like the ones mentioned, it reminded me what my gamekeeper friend used with gear lever change under dash, small wheels/ box shape, high ground clearance, low front,

ANy idea on the age of the van ? or the size of the van?

I know you said its a newish, daf type but if its an older/smaller van it could be something like a Renault Kangoo 4x4 as they still look relatively new style.

Could it have been an LDV Cub which was a re badged Nissan Vanette.

You sat over the engine and it was quite noisy inside the cab

I had one as a hire vehicle from work a few times.
