Volkswagen Crafter dimensions (2006-2011)

There are panel van, minibus, pick-up and chassis cab bodystyles, normal, raised and super-high roofs, plus single- and double-cab options.

VW has also worked alongside a number of coachbuilders and converters ensuring a wide range of custom bodystyles including touring campers and mobile workshops.

From 2007, off-the-peg Drop-side, Tipper and Luton conversions were made available, making the cost of such vehicles more transparent, standardising the warranty cover and reducing waiting times.
