I am wanting to buy a Caddy Maxi Life but I don't want 7 seats. I want to put a pack of dogs (in cages) in the back. I do however, want something a bit fancier than the basic van.

There are a lot of converted vehicles for sale at quite reasonable prices with ramps fitted.

Has anybody removed a ramp and returned to "standard"? It looks like - at least - a new bumper and the floor levelled (plugging the gap). Or, is this just madness.

I am competent and well equipped (amateur) mechanic and I don't mind a challenge
