According to the Northgate vehicle spec sheet a new swb transit has a load length of 2.582m so 2 standard pallets and a load weight of 1097kg, a lwb Transit has a load length of 3.399m so 3 pallets and a load weight of 1422kg, my Sprinter lwb has 4.3m load length so 4 pallets and weight around 1100kg. I am sure someone on here with a Transit may have more info for you though.

Hi Gary, don't discount a LWB 2900 Vivaro which can carry 3 euros @ 1.25 m height or 2 standards with a payload (in spec sheets) of 1240kgs and will do 35 mpg minimum.
