What's the difference in price when insuring a SWB van versus a LWB van?

Do Short Wheelbase and Long Wheelbase vans have different insurance costs?

Technically, yes. The cost of panels on a LWB van will be more expensive (because they are bigger) and as a result the cost of repair after an accident will probably be higher (will take more labour, time and materials to replace them). I would expect the effect on the premium to be minimal though.
