Can you suggest a small, petrol, reliable used van?

I want to buy a small petrol van. I need it to be big enough to sleep in the back occasionally (I'm only 5'4 so doesn't need to be very long). I'm about to open my own business, so I'll sometimes need to use it for work. I want reliability, good fuel economy and ideally three seats in the front. I know nothing about cars or vans, so please help steer me in the right direction. My budget is £3000.

The Citroen Nemo might suit your needs. It's available with a 1.4-litre petrol engine and is easy to drive, with good handling: vans.honestjohn.co.uk/van-reviews/citroen/nemo-200.../

The Citroen Berlingo is another inexpensive van that's abundant on the used market. It was also offered with a 1.6 litre petrol and should be large enough to sleep in, should you want to: vans.honestjohn.co.uk/van-reviews/citroen/berlingo.../
