Our municipality’s weekly market is held on every Friday afternoon. The vendors are offering a whole range of fresh food and other products, like flowers, plants and also clothes. This combination of a (decoupled) food trailer and full-size panel van is used to sell fresh, fried and smoked sea fish. The livery on both trailer and van is spot on! It even says vis, Dutch for fish, in the form of a fish.
If a FWD Fiat Ducato (or something similar) is too much of a lightweight for your job, then you can always opt for the RWD and body-on-frame Iveco Daily.
This heavy-duty van, with dual rear wheels, has a wheelbase of 352 cm (138.6”). It speaks for itself that the Daily is available in multiple wheelbases and roof heights and is also offered in different chassis-cab versions.
The van is powered by an FPT 3.0 liter, inline-four turbodiesel. Maximum power output 170 DIN-hp.
The Koelewijn family hails from
Spartanburg Spakenburg. The town has been known for fish processing and trading for ages.
The business end, quite literally, of the overland sea fish operation. Take notice! Weekly market on every Friday, tow-away zone from 11.00 – 19.00 hours.
Bon appétit! (photo courtesy of Vishandel J. Koelewijn)
