If you aren’t used to driving around large vehicles then the Crafter Tipper is quite intimidating to take out for a test. It feels more reminiscent of a bus rather than a van due to the length and the double cab layout. It is, however, a really nice drive The automatic gearbox makes for a very smooth journey. It may be lacking luxuries but for the basic essence of driving it does the job well.
We took our friends from a local building firm out in the tipper to see what points they would mention that we might not initially think about. They all pointed out that the missing reverse sensors/camera on a van that size was a recipe for disaster. To avoid any damage then this would be a much needed safety feature as it is not an easy van to manoeuvre. It was made clear that they all liked the van but would need a higher specification to be convinced to buy.
