    I've been looking for an Econoline 4x4 diesel for a long time, and they are rarer as shit around here. I wouldn't order a new one given the engine choices now, and I can't afford the insane money people seem to want for a used Sportsmobile... $90K? I guess I'll keep looking.

    I am leaning towards a Sprinter, but while I love the inside height and space, just not as rugged. I guess it would be nicer for paved travel though, but I don't see it splashing through the water in Death Valley like above.

    The logo was on it when I bought it. Needs paint and some rainbow and puppies stickers. I was hoping to have the inside done for this years dirt bike camping fun...

    Be on the lookout for me and Comet in the WA/OR area in July as we trip around in this.

    Mine still hasn't gotten me no babes tho. Maybe cause it's a MINIvan and lacks the cachet of the older ones?!? Look, I got the light alloy wheels, cool stickers, etc... Come on, do I STILL really look like a "soccer mom?!?!" :oscar

    At least I get to sleep with my hot blooded Italian mistress each night on the road. Mad Moto Marko

    That's where I rode, too. Unless I was "driving" . :lol3

    My Mom snapped this of me "driving" the 73 Tradesman on I-70 somewhere in Kansas...

    In the Tradesman, we had a big brown victorian style chair with wooden arms that they'd just sit between the front buckets. Seat Belts? Car seats? :poser

    My current and favorite vehicle so far:
    2001 Econoline 150

    It made the long slog across the plains states to and from Wyoming much more bearable also. Four guys and all their gear and bikes fit comfortably, captains chairs all around.

    Like kids. They don't want to be seen in a minivan, either.
