Where can I go to watch stuff like that?

I'd like to see the same test with a semi and a 53' box attached as a target.

What about a larger truck behind the Van? The ladder frame and side walls are going to quickly accordion from a heavy rear impact.
None of the vehicles in this class do very well in big crashes, really.

The videos are encouraging. Early in the decision process, I had some idle thoughts of converting a Mitisubisho Fuso, Isuzu/GMC or Hino type cab-over. But the thought of a crash in those (my face and body so close to the impact area, no crush zone) was a factor in not pursuing them further.

I feel that an important and undervalued aspect of building out vans. I'm planning on having a partition between me and the contents in the back.

There are a few videos around of RV cabinets and unsecured loads slamming forward in head-on crash tests. There is a lot of mass back there!
