        I've got a 2015 Sprinter that I traded my 2006 E350 for and there is no comparison. The sprinter has so much more room and drives like a car.
        Push me to the limit,
        maybe I may bend,
        but I will not be broken.

              Here's a picture of it pulling my toybox. It has a Braunability UVL and Monarch hand controls. It came standard with a manual swivel seat so I haven't put a power seat in it yet

                Have you had any issues with UVL lift during Colorado winters?

                    I've been seeing a lot of great deals on eBay for used E Series Fords.

                        Thanks Rook! Haven't had any issues so far in the winter and I drove through a couple of really nasty snow storms. I keep it garaged normally, but I left it out in sub-zero temperatures when travelling recently and the UVL worked like a charm. It's well protected inside of it's storage compartment and the van's running boards keep the ice from building up on it while driving.

                          Fuente - I agree! They definitely used the ugly stick when designing the new Ford Transit. I like the look of the Sprinter a lot better. Also, the Ford doesn't come with four wheel drive which is a necessity in my part of the world

                              I was referring to the Econolines up to 2014. I'm not really into the looks of the Transit, maybe it'll grow on me. But from what I've read, the ride and handling qualities of the Transit is superior to the older vans.
