Details: Old and new 1. There are several points of interest about this photo taken at the Volkswagen dealership in Bedfont on the last day of 2016. On the right is Caddy van 7322VW in full LUL livery. This van has been based at Acton Works and has often been seen on Bollo Lane. Despite this, the only other photographs I have of it were taken at this same dealership when it was brand new in 2012. It is not yet known if 7322VW has been withdrawn or was just here for repairs. It could have been visiting to allow equipment and fittings to be removed for transfer to a new vehicle, of which quite a few were also present. On the left is Caddy Maxi crew van RF66HZD in unmarked white/blue livery. This is an example of the 'New' Caddy although, as with the larger Transporter van, the differences between marques are minimal. A very obvious difference is the fitting of a top-hung rear door on RF66HZD. This has always been an option on the VW Caddy model but, as far as I know, this is the first time it has been seen on a service vehicle, all others having the asymmetric, side-hung doors as seen on 7322VW. The final point concerns the recessed side windows and panels on Caddy Maxi RF66HZD, compared to the smooth bodysides of Caddy 7322VW. I have never noticed this before but it appears to be a standard difference between the two lengths.
