I run a small courier company and these C15s are my secret weapon
Mine is doing up to 1800 miles a week and I think this is the c15 doing the most miles in the UK today
I love these van I can maintain them myself and cost me nothing and it makes money

C15D ?

You'd be in good company here (Andalucia). The C15D/RD has been the workhorse of choice for thousands of farmers and growers for a long time, and there are still huge numbers of them running around, almost all in white or silver. Rear radius arm bearings creak on a lot of them, of course.

Cullompton, eh? Handy for the odd stainless exhaust . . . not that you'd need it on the C15 !

Jeremiah, funny that - DevonDog made exactly the same claim.

& why shouldn't you need a S/S exhaust on a C15? Sorry bit of a sore point, mine's tail box fell off (just as I came off the S. Devon Link Road). Really would like to fit something less like a trombone (Visa one should fit - but it's 4 - 5 times the price!)
