The Iveco van was updated in 2015 with an 8 speed automatic [called the Hi-matic] from ZF instead of the Comfortmatic. A 207bhp engine is an option on 2015 models. Suspension was improved [much needed improvement] so check what chassis is underpinning the Credo and whether full air suspension is fitted. Dials are small so if you buy a RHD with the speedo in mph, make sure you can read the kph dial. Check it in daylight.
It's quite possible a 2015 Credo will be on the old Iveco chassis, good but not as good as the new one!
The Iveco is a proven workhorse for heavyweight vans and motorhomes up to 7,200kg and has replaced the traditional small truck-like vehicles.
I can only comment on the Iveco as a van but with the new 2015 Iveco base, Concorde's renown build quality, and a colour scheme other than cream, I doubt you'll go wrong. Niesmann & Bischoff build the Arto and Flair which are worth considering.
