Which large van is best?

I know you consider vans to be designed to last four years of hard labour but I would like to know which van you would recommend to use as a replacement for my large Ford Transit and handy Vauxhall Meriva.

I would like to have just one vehicle lager than the Meriva but smaller than the LWB Transit. Comfort, economy, reliability and longevity are my main concerns. Am leaning toward a Vivaro, what would you recommend?

A Vivaro is really a Renault Trafic which is probably the most popular van in Europe. With FWD it has an exceptionally low load floor that is a big advantage. 2.0 and 1.6 diesel engines good.

Is the Volkswagen Caddy van worth its premium price? I drive Fiat Doblo for work which is comfortable enough and okay to drive. A Caddy would be double the money. Is it worth that extra on monthly payments...
What's your opinion of the Ford Transit Custom?
Is there problems with the new Volkswagen Caddy?

Roomy, easy-to-drive, five-seat mini MPV. Sliding rear seats fold into the floor. VXR is nearly as quick as a hot hatch.
Vauxhall version of the Renault Trafic, reliable and well built, comfortable ride and a good all-rounder.
