The first version of Volkswagen’s large van was launched in 1995. Made by Mercedes Benz AG in Dusseldorf, it was first sold as the VW LT.
The second version was introduced in 2006 and rebranded as the Crafter.
The third series appeared in 2017 and marks a major departure from the past. VW has decided to ends its historic collaboration with Mercedes and produce the van in-house. A large new factory has been built in Poland for this purpose.
The Crafter is a large van with a voluminous, square load compartment. This makes it ideal for conversion as a mobile workshop. Even with a racking system and all the materials and tools needed for a job in place, the Crafter still has plenty of room left to carry even bulky cargo.
A racking system made up of drawers, shelves, worktops, plastic containers, cabinets and various useful accessories like lights, cargo straps, containers, components cases, vice supports etc. has transformed this Crafter into the ideal mobile workshop!
Volkswagen is betting hard on the large van segment and the ultra-modern Crafter has all it takes to dominate the market.
The square, protrusion-free shape of the cargo space makes the Crafter perfect for installing shelves, drawers and other racking modules to convert the van into an efficient mobile workshop.
These photos show how Syncro’s installation team fitted a set of shelves on the left of the van and, on the right, a wheel arch cabinet, drawer cabinets with metal drawers and case trays, more shelves - this time with removable plastic containers - and, at the top, a cabinet of tilting transparent containers.
