Looks like it is a VW Transporter short wheel base ? Which would make the distance from rear doors to front seats around 2.5 metres. So, you'll get some WW boats in (my Wavesport Z would probably fit, my Arc would not).

Possibly a Scud if you regard that as a creek boat.

We have a SWB transporter. You can get creekboats in from corner to corner, usually lifted up a bit. If it’s modified to have 2 seats, then you can slide them down the middle and stack one on top of the other. This is assuming of course that they aren’t full of beds and stuff.

I have the T5, I would say for travelling, yes the shorter creekers will fit in because there's no bulkhead fitted. However, you would need a cover for the seat backs, to stop the boats chaffing at the upholstery, and, they would have to come out for sleeping, so would need securing to something outside. You have presumably ruled out a roof rack as not pratical or ?

Im guessing you're thinking of renting rather than buying? Apparently the bed is 2m long, so you have less than 2.5m behind the seats.

I'm sure if you chop them up small enough they will go in.
