Can't say which one's the "best", but Del Boy has to be my favourite.

Others:

-Boycie
-Fletch
-Rimmer
-Blackadder
-Fawlty
-Corporal Jones
-Lord Melchett

EDIT: ...and Alan Partridge, of course!

Some of my favourite's fom sitcoms

Albert Steptoe - "So I get bunged in to an old people's home while you float around the world with five bits of crumpet"

Geoff Tipps - "My Mum got better, but yours died, I won that one, at least I won the Mums"

Officer Crabtree - "Good moaning, I pissed by the door, when I heard a shat"

Trigger - "It' Mozart's symphony number 38 in D major, It's a karaoke version"

Alan Partridge - "Single hand Sue tackling the buffet there, she's like a human JCB"

Vyvyan Basterd

Did they ever mention his surname in the show itself or is it as with Trigger, his real name only being mentioned in the script(s)? I can't remember this.
