I think you need to make the basic design choices/compromises.
Up to 1.98 - you might get in a multi story (transporter/vito)
Above 2m you wont (My Boxer)
Above maybe 2.5m you will be able to stand up (TrafficMaster/Sprinter)
Actually standing up in a van is kind of amazing for doing things like building Steadicams in the rain.
Then you got wheelbase which is a compromise of being able to park in a normal space through to kind of having special parking at any location
Then you got seats, 2-3 or a second row that you can/not remove.
I think once you nail the basic spec the options will have narrowed?
Im a massive fan of a metal bulkhead.. cos when you roll the thing you want your little flesh body and your pile of flight cases not to mix.
My personal experience of vans
Fiesta ex bt van - great runabout 2 seats
Maestro.. bigger as above now all dead!
2005 (bought 2008 sold 2012) Vito, nipped into a multistory, rusted apart (apparently later models are better)
2008 (bought 2012-current) boxer - a proper small lorry wont get in a multi but seems to eat 2X the volume of the Vito.
Turning Circle.. my Pug Boxer is like a PeeWee it nearly rotates upon itself. I was driving a crew in a hire van and tried to swing a U and it took me about 10 goes.. so check the turning circle.
