Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

• Leeds-based refrigerated vehicle specialist GRP Massey is now offering a controlledtemperature body conversion, based on the 3.5-tonne GVW, long-wheelbase Volkswagen LT35E high-roof van.

The conversion, which can be for either chilled or frozen food applications, is similar to that already offered by GRP Massey on the Freight Rover Sherpa 350.

GRP Massey lines the van's interior with urethane block foam, based on an inner framework. The foam is then covered by a seamless glassreinforced-plastic laminate covering. A single block-type fridge door replaces the LT35E's standard double rear doors, and a choice of floors can be specified, including a fully alloy deck.

Payload on the LT35E fridge van is around 1,140kg (2,5131b). The Volkswagen van's roof has been recessed to accept a Hubbard 460EL condenser, which can be run overnight from an outside electrical source.

Price for the conversion is around £5,500, depending on final specification, in addition to the LT35E diesel van's list price of £12,837.

The GRP Massey body conversion can accept a standard pallet through its side door or rear door which is wider than the standard VW twin door rear closure.
