What Volkswagen Crafter is the same size as a Ford Transit 350 L3 H3?

You'll probably want a L3 H3 Volkswagen Crafter. If buying new, that'll give you a permitted total weight of 3.0 - 4.0 tonnes for front-wheel drive or 3.5 - 5.5 tonnes if you opt for rear-wheel drive. Both should provide a slightly larger load space, compared to the Ford. Full Volkswagen Crafter review here:
