Personalised number plate W5 WET, 2004 54reg with TILT CAB 

!!!! Do not make the mistake of buying a 7.5 Ton converted lorry (as we originally did) as the payload on a 7.5Ton after conversion is only between 1 - 2 Ton and becomes a constant worry about every spare, person and even the food you carry!!!! We were running at 10 Ton when we had a 7.5Ton converted lorry and VOSA are constantly on the lookout for overloaded 7.5 Ton converted trucks… this was a total nightmare!!! The cost of an HGV license is only 2-3k and is the best investment we ever made!!!

This is a very reluctant sale due to change of business focus. 

HISTORY: This professionally converted truck has been used as family living and stock lorry (children’s clothing so is clean and well looked after) at the UK Agricultural Shows, therefor the living area has been converted to the highest of standards for the business owners to live in during the show season.
