I'm buying a small van - what would you recommend?

What's the best small van that will fit a trials bike (approx 6'2 long)?

Generally, mid-size panel vans are better for moving motorbikes with the wide and long load area being perfect for carrying one or two. However, if you really don't want something like the Mercedes-Benz Vito or Ford Transit Custom, the Volkswagen Caddy Maxi might suit. It has a load area that measures 2249mm long and 1532mm wide.
