    Renault Trafic: Review, Specification, Price | CarAdvice

    Living by the seaside has many benefits — a free dip on a hot day without having to drive anywhere, bracing beach walks on cold days and myriad good seafood restaurants spring to mind immediately. But there are drawbacks, too — and one of the biggest is the presence of thousands of herring gulls.

    Bearing in mind what they eat, it is not hard to imagine the volumes of guano they produce and the local flock seems to have taken an unwanted interest in my shiny black van. In fact, on a couple of occasions, it has more resembled a piece of abstract art rather than a commercial vehicle.

    Bearing in mind that many companies keeping a tight control on finances for cash, this problem on, say, a vehicle fleet could be a major one. On a happier note the importance of air-conditioning has been brought home to me fully in the August heatwave.

    How grateful I was to climb back into the cool, calm climate-controlled cab of the Trafic. So, my message to any fleet manager who thinks air-con represents an unnecessary cost is — think again. I rather stupidly placed my specs on the passenger seat and, as soon as I went round a bend, they whizzed off and located themselves somewhere in the murky depths of the cab where I had never even looked before.

    My wife managed to move them after about 10 minutes of trying, just enough for me to hook them up with a knife. A more serious incident of note occurred the other day — and one which left me realising just how important the modern technology we get on vans nowadays really is. After buying some goods at a local supermarket, I climbed into the van, switched the engine on, put the gear lever in reverse and immediately the reversing bleepers told me something was amiss.

    She was hidden from my line of sight. I got out of the van and tried as politely as I could to explain the folly of her ways, but, sad to say, instead of a red-faced apology to yours truly, I was treated to a mouthful of abuse.

    The girl may not have learned a lesson here, but I surely did. Always trust your onboard technology. Of course, the problem with rearward cameras and sensors is that the fleet manager can struggle to assess their true value. If these sensors are not a standard fitting, then they should be the first thing to be added on the list of extras.

    They will pay for themselves time and time again, believe me. I made it a crusade during my time as editor of our previous incarnation Fleet Van to call for reversing sensors to be made a legal fitment on all commercial vehicles.

    It would be an easy law to enact but sadly, as of today, no such legislation seems to be on the horizon. As I am now past retiring age, maybe my younger colleagues could take up the cudgels where I left off. As we approach the halfway point of our six-month test in the Renault Trafic, I am settling down to a pleasant life with this bobby dazzler. By now, I am well used to all the admiring and sometimes jealous stares from other van drivers and am immensely enjoying using all the gizmos and gadgets that accompany it.
