The Mercedes Sprinter in its XLWB guise has led this segment of the market for some years now, but another popular choice is the Ford Transit Jumbo - an extra-long version of the Transit LWB.

Both vehicles have an internal load length of 4m or more and a payload of around 1400kg - slightly less than LWB vans because of the greater weight of the longer van.

For many users, however, the flexibility of the large, 13.5m3 load space makes up for the slight loss of payload, allowing an extremely wide variety of loads to be carried.

Most hire companies offer either Sprinter XLWBs or Transit Jumbos - there aren't really any other alternatives to these two vans in the 3.5t class - and both are excellent, hard-working vehicles.
