When it comes to tipper vans, the LDV tipper van is an affordable option. Although it is not packed full of added features and top specifications, it certainly offers value for money. Previously a small British company, LDV tipper vans are now manufactured in China. When looking to buy a tipper van, consider the options of buying a new or used van, consider the different LDV models available, and choose a specific engine size.


Overview of the LDV Tipper Van

LDV was originally a small British owned manufacturer of work and transit vans. Due to tough times, the company is now under the manufacture of Chinese car company, Eco Concept Limited. Originally set up in 1993, there are four model types. These include the Convoy, Maxus, Pilot, and Cub. These models are available in transit van types as well as chassis cab types with tipper tray.


Choose a New or Used LDV Tipper Van

A useful utility van, new LDV tipper vans offer good value for money. Although they are not considered a top-of-the-range vehicle offering the latest technology and specifications, they are reliable, practical, and durable, especially considering their reasonable price range. For those who are on a tight budget, a used LDV tipper van is a good option. With sturdy design, a used van still offers good driving for many years.


LDV Tipper Van Models

The tipper tray is available on a range on LDV van models, including the popular Maxus and Convoy. First available between 2005 and 2009, the LDV Maxus is the newest LV van model available.
