Default Nets

Was looking at some new vans, seems they don't come with nets as standard...
Makes you wonder what else is not standard now...

Some people may decide not to have them, and opt for blinds instead, However If you look at new vans online its very rare that you see any window coverings at all.

Might be to minimise the fire risk ??

More likely to be to minimise the cost.
Probably can be added as an optional extra..

I suppose it's like buying a new car ?...They give you a price then ask ..Do you want certian wheels on it ?...Do you want it pained in a certain way ?
Do you want to tax it ?..Do you want a particular interior ?....

Oh !!!..That will be extra !!!

Think they called them voile in our van. ...my point was ,what was standard ,is now extra.,The nets being an example.....bit like buying a car and finding ,you could have had a spare wheel,instead of aerosol repairer,IF you had asked,not much fun in a country lane if aerosol won't repair tyre
