Holland the road tax is a lot cheaper when you have a "grey"
registration, meaning that the vehicle is used by a company. To
have your vehicle registered in this class it has to meet a number
of requirements, one of them is that if it has more than one row
of seats you are required to have a closed freight compartment.
In my case this compartment was about 30 cm (1 foot) too short
to transport my bikes, so I started doing some "modifications"...
They do fit now!
