One of the reasons why South Africa is such a bakkie-rich market is because buyers often purchase these vehicles for hauling purposes.

As such, this article will look at five popular single cab bakkies and the sizes of their respective loading bays.

All loading bays are measured in length x width x depth. While the millimetres differ by the smallest of margins from bakkie to bakkie, it often makes a huge difference when the loading process is underway.
