My concern with that on the back ( with it being so light ) is that someone of the light fingered fraternity would also notice - would rather it locked away / put inside something.

It would also get covered in road crap

Meaning so would you putting it on and taking it off

Looks like a pain in the arse solution

It's not perfect I agree but negates the bongo.. I dunno whether that is good or bad?

As for getting covered in crap.. I bike commute year round. My arse is rustier than s2000 arches

You say a van is out of the question but a VW Transporter would make a good daily

(relative) Performance, reliability, fuel economy, loading area/headroom, low depreciation and nice to drive.

If it's obvious it's not a work van you might avoid attention of thieves.

If you need more windows/seats you could look at the 'Caravelle' (I think?) version, seats can be switched around to suit load.
