Using the void at rear of LWB van
#1
Has anybody got any suggestions for using the empty voids at the rear of the long wheelbase berlingo (mk2, 2013 version)?

I've converted my 2013 LWB berlingo and it's generally great, but it's always bugged me that there is a bit of space at the back of the van where the additional section for the LWB is welded on that is not usable for storage etc. Wondering if anybody has cut through the metal in these sections to add shelves/cupboard space etc. 

Attached picture to show which bit I'm referring too.

I wouldn't recommend cutting into it as it's classed as a structural component of the van.

Couldn't agree more.

Thanks both, don't disagree with that. Clearly the primary structure of the panels needs to remain in place. All I was wondering if anyone had any interesting ideas for using the space.

I think what you've done with the 4 way stretch carpet and the ply has already nailed it
