The VRS team fitted a polypropylene lining kit which is lighter than ply and easy to keep clean, its also so much nicer that traditional ply and makes the van much more visually appealing. A 12mm marine grade ply floor was installed, this provides a strong and stable base to support the racking and any other equipment being carried onboard. A resin coated replacement floor has other advantages – it’s anti slip and easy to keep clean plus enhances the overall appearance of the van.
