Hi Baz
Single rear tailgates are mainly fibreglass and if you keep an eye on Facebook van pages
& eBay they come up from time to time
The history of your van you can get a report from the RTA but don't know how detailed it is..

Gidday Baz

Just as Neil wrote about the tailgate.

The other option is to get your Steel ones welded together.  A bit of Bracing and infill.

It'll be heavier than Fibreglass but with the availability of Gas Struts these days, shouldn't be a problem.

On the same subject has anyone used both fiberglass for top and bottom tailgates.
The 70's were good times..... but are now catching up with me and I find the tailgate is getting to be a bit harder to lift.
Any ideas would be welcome.


Cheers Bazz

Andrew (Vandil) uses fibreglass gates and swears by them. Gas struts are the go for sure to take the weight away.
There is a Van with a fibreglass gate the same as Andrew & Kerri's (Serendipity) on gumtree at the moment (Yellow WB with Sandman stripes)

They are around but you have to keep an eye open and grab them as soon as you spot them or you miss out. You can't buy one piece gates new anymore. Vancraft mould sold on ebay years ago. I guess somebody owns it now, but never seen them advertised for sale since the mould sold.
