Isn’t it like driving a bread bin?
Yes.

Do you get any respect from other road users?
Not from people in big cars (Volvos, Audis, BMWs, 4x4s) but does anyone? Other vans, lorries and buses are usually quite friendly though, and often let you into traffic, which is nice.

Where’s the engine?
It’s between the front wheels, tilted at 45 degrees to the left to reduce the height. You can get to it by hinging the seats backwards (passenger seat for coolant, windscreen wash fluid, oil and sparkplugs, driver seat for air filter) and a bolted down ‘hump’ behind the seats, in the load space - sounds awkward but engine access is better than on some larger vans.

Are you busy at the weekend?
Nothing like owning a van to help you make friends. The largest thing I’ve moved was a three-seater sofa, with a winged back - I was ‘volunteered’ to help move it and was surprised that it did fit. Had to move the passenger seat forward though. I’ve carried a couple of armchairs and help liberate a redundant piece of factory equipment too.

Will my motorcycle fit in the back
I’m intending to compile a list of ones that might - if you know of any that do or no not fit, I’d be interested to know.
'Ross' tells me his 650cc Triumph Bonneville-style motorcycle will fit, with the steering at full lock, diagonally across the van - you'll need to put something rigid over the battery cover for the side stand to rest on then, with the side doors partly open pass a ratcheted strap behind the lower rollers of the doors and hook undet the van sills, then tighten up and close the doors.

Does anyone make a toy or model of a Rascal?
I have yet to find one but investigations are still ongoing - if you find one first, do let me know.
The Japanese toy company Tomica have produced models based on the old Suzuki Carry truck in 1:55 scale (similar to Matchbox 75/Corgi Junor size) including ‘truck with two pigs’ and ‘noodle bar’
There is also a cardboard cut-out model of a new Suzuki Carry truck (and a variety of other vehicles, including a Honda Acty truck) to be had at this papercraft website (don’t be put off by the English translation; it is not a sea bass)

What’s the difference between a Rascal and a SuperCarry then?
Only the trim, so I’ve been told:

From the front - the grille panel and position of sidelights - the SuperCarry has them in the bumper or beside the headlights; the Rascal has them in the headlight unit.

From the side - the SuperCarry has a black surround to the indicator, just behind the cab door, and the words SuperCarry on the black patch below the door window, if fitted.
