    I'm taking my new (to me) 2005 LWB Transit to Europe in September for a 3mth trip. It is still registered as a van and needs a few things doing with this trip in mind. Can anyone recommend water tanks for underneath it? It does not have any ventilation either - wondering about louvered vents for rear doors, but having trouble finding ones that you can shut from inside the van if needed. Figure someone on here might have some suggestions!? Thanks.

    CAK Tanks for your tanks...

    Will probably stock something to solve your ventilation problem too.

    Cak Tanks do purpose built ones for your transit and mounting kits
    I went for Heki roof lights in my transit for light and ventilation
    they do a proper bonded transit side panel glass with slide opener for the transit also
    Will dig out a pic or two for you

    Here you are, I put my tank inside under a seat, not so much work involved and half the cost, its only intended as a weekender, although I keep adding bits like hot water full cooker and a fridge its slowly turning into a fully fledged camper.
    The sliding window is bonded to sliding door on this one, but can be fitted to any panel

    Thank you JJ and Geo, useful info! I have a busy friend who is willing and able to do the work but does not have the time to research it all - so I can send him something positive to look at now.
