I wonder if Ford will be in the mid 20s, or high 30s like the sprinter?
And bought stock in 80/20 Inc.?
Have you considered the Nissan NV (assuming they're offered in Canada)? I've seen them bought OTD in the mid-$20K(US) range. Owners are reporting upper-teens for MPG, with a high-roof and V6.
Having lived OTR as a truck driver for 18yrs, I have to agree. Going from a flattop cab to a mid-roof to a stand-up sleeper makes one spoiled and not willing to go back to a flattop.

Do you know if you could reinforce the tall roof and then be able to put in a poptop to sleep 4? I know as is, the tall roof will not support the weight of a sportsmobile or eurovan poptop conversion. I currently have a Westfalia but as you know with the rear engine, you can't pull things in/out.....and it's slow!
Thanks and love following your work!
Can someone tell me where I can get the gray corrugated plastic that's on the lower sidewalls in the sprinters. I looked back through the thread but can't find it.
The Sprinter came with it - I'm sure you could buy it from Mercedes but it'd be stupid expensive.
There is a very similar product used in RC airplanes called "coroplast" - it is not exactly the same but close (you can google images).
If you are wanting to cut your own panels you might do better buying something like that in sheets?
I believe there are similar products in home improvement stores. Also, Nudo makes a variety of panels.
Thanks. I am looking for sheets to cover the sidewalls for now after I sound proof and insulate. Just got a 2012 crew .
VERY NICE !! Thats what I want. What's your feeling about roof height. I think the standard is high enough for me.
I am happy with it, I really wanted it to fit in my garage. Even with the standard roof there are still a lot of height restrictions you need to watch for. Like no automatic car washes . I am in the hunt for some 16" black wheels right now, trying not to copy Geek's wheels .
I have used to build RC airplanes. Go to a sign store and buy a 4 by 8 foot sheet of it in a variety of different colors.
Plan on some extra time at the carwash - it is like washing a freakin' house
Ya my parking situation is one reason the high roof wont really work for me. The black wheels are sweet, a good look.
Put the first add on today .
Looks great... But beware: That style of grille guard can cause far more body damage than it prevents. Good for keeping small stuff like branches and kittens off the bodywork, but on slightly bigger impacts, it can fold right into the fenders and hood causing lots of sheet metal damage that otherwise would have been absorbed by the bumper.
For sure, they don't hold up to animal impacts, as they're too thin of material and there are no mountings for the "wings" around the headlights. Still looks good, though.
You'd have to get into something like what Aluminess offers.
*That's* a bumper!
