The best Chasis for a van according to me would be the Mitsubishi Voyager. Have seen a lot of them being roughed around still performing... God the way the UPS drivers drive them around you would expect them to fall apart but they seem to be lasting really well. Havent heard to many negatives about them either.

As for going to coach builder's the first thing is the trust and the finish quality that would be completely dependent on the people you would know personally.

Dc's overall quality might look good cos of the kinda paint he uses, but he uses loads of filler coats under the paint which can be a big problem if ur paint gets chipped later on.
you gotta decide on a budget dude, to actually work out what base would be best. and the fact that you want a bed and stuff, then u gotta look big like a tempo traveller or something.

jesal stay far far away from the voyager, we had one to transposrt the staff and once a week it need to go to the garage for something or the other, finnally we sold it in ayear and bought a tempo traveller, that too gave us a bit of trouble

now we use tata sumos for staff transport,

hey why dont you check out the versa???
