    Parked up next to this smashing contraption at Beadnell C&CC site a couple of days ago. Belonged to a Dutch couple. The double back doors of the van had been replaced with a couple of full size glass French doors that lightened up the inside of the van and when it was time to leave, the railings folded in flat on themselves and then the floor pivoted up, assisted by a large gas strut. The underside of the floor was equipped with indicators and brake lights.

    Brilliant vans... and many, many still in use.

    (I think I have seen that van somewhere on my travels.)
