Coming in small, medium and large sizes and in a variety of wheelbase lengths and roof heights, this is what we think of as the archetypal van. With so much flexibility and choice on offer they’re the most popular type of van around. And so they’re used by a whole range of trades from couriers and electricians right up to construction. They’re also being increasingly used for lifestyle conversions with the rise of the staycation. Classic examples of the panel van include the Ford Transit, Volkswagen Transporter, Mercedes Sprinter, Renault Master and Vauxhall Vivaro.
