Do a search over at KTMtalk. Have been several threads about it lately.

Don't let this thread die...... I have a Dodge diesel 3/4 ton, and am thinking that a Sprinter would be great for the missus. Or we'll swap. I like them - I get 19-20 mpg running biodiesel in the truck, and would love to get 25+ with a Sprinter...... wife hates vans, but they seem to fit nicely between the minivan and the Chester the Molester Econolines.

We've got a '05 for work (auto parts) and the guy that usually drives it seems to like it. We have driven to Chicago with it (about 280 miles round trip), and got 23 mpg. That's better than the Dodge fullsize van with a 5.2L V8. The model we have is pretty basic, with no interior panels to speak of, except the full length rubber flooring. He said it does get kind of loud inside, but otherwise no problems.

One of my video production partners does, I drove it and absolutely love the thing for film and video production on a small scale. Has great power and gets extreemly good mileage.

Dodge Sprinter

Thinking about getting one. Gonna get one that is pretty bare and make a toy hauler / camper out of it. DanWife just isn't into the 12 hour (or 22 in one case) marathon rides. And bitches when I leave her home (which is why I won't be at the bugscuffle this month). So what's the concensus.
The good, the bad amd the ugly.

l think that's a wonderful idea & you should both be very happy,& it will lead to a closer relationship when you have to share a chemical toilet.
