You can pick up Bongo's for reasonable money. They also suffice as an everyday car as well.

i have a seat alhambra at the moment ,its surprizing how much room there is in it when you remove the seats .would be ok for the od weekend in the summer .as soon as i can get rid of the beemer it will give me room on the drive and a few quid to spend
