Sounds like H1 might be your best bet?
Relatively cheap to buy, reliable and low risk!
I would buy sprinter as I park mine in parallel parking, very light on fuel and lasts forever!
Not cheap and yes I am biast!
Open window at the back is nice, easier to reverse but more prone to prying eyes  :patch:

Aren't the Sprinters rated >3.5t so can't be driven with a code 08?
Yip!
That is why I think the H100 might be better suited for his use!

I think you mean H1. The H100 is the dropside bakkie.

I hear you, reverse parking a completely blind (no rear windows) van is terrible. I have a VW Transporter. I have fitted 3 cameras to the rear. 2 cameras are angled to give a 180deg rear view. They are linked to 2 monitors that are mounted where the rear view mirror would normally be. I can switch them off if not needed.  Then I have a 3rd camera aimed down at the bumper/tow hitch which is activated when selecting reverse and linked to the double DIN head unit that I installed.

Alfie Cox has started using the Mabor van!
Looks lekker and code 8!
Was cheap when I looked at them!
Maybe an option if you are not going to clock up serious mileage!

Are you sure of the spelling of the Mabor?  Google shows nothing...

Handguards complete: R2800 per set.
Mirrors are R550 - each, they are pricey, but very well made, Billet, convex, etc.

Sidetrack, did you ever conclude this investigation?  I'm thinking along the same lines.

Peugeot Boxer?
Nissan Interstar?

Apparently a Quantum is a good choice. Just ask the F*KK#R that tried to steal my 660 last monday morning.

I have a Peugeot Boxer, perfect for the job, but dodgy gearbox if abused by drivers, had a mine repaired long and pricey, but now perfect, we went to Bathhurst a week ago to race, a buddy in his sprinter and mine, Peugeot a lot more economical, Boxer 9.2 km /l Sprinter 7.5km/l Both are the older models with bigger motors. 2008. mine has a 2.8 TD, Peugeot is fwd so no geabox changes likely. Also both need code 10. however in camper version even the double wheel needs a 08 licence, I am loolking at doing a camper conversion in mine, but still able to fit 1 bike in the centre with all beds etc packed away for travel mode.

Ideally I'd like to avoid the code 10 requirement etc.  The additional problem that I have is that none of those will fit the rally bike, even with the fairing removed, the tower is too high.

I could lay my hands on a Vito high roof recently but was fast asleep and in any event didn't have the capital at the time.  Don't want to sell my bakkie before I know exactly what to start looking for.

My requirements is to load enduro or rally bike plus the laaities bikes (pw80 and crf70).  Even two bikes is fine with the x-ramp at the back and must seat 3.

 :thumleft:  I've noticed on a couple that I've been following clutch and gearbox replaced or fixed - exactly like you said.

Iveco Daily code?

This is awesome, but unfortunately totally out of my price range, even second hand.
