Nope it's used... I've been negotiating for over a month, and will pick it up in 2 weeks. That's a better timeline than new, but it isn't quite exactly what I want so there's a some tradeoff.

Getting excited? Are you like a kid before x-mas? How about some details of what you're getting, and hope to see some pics soon. That reminds me, I need to take pics of mine...

I'm crazy busy trying to get ready for the trip, so I haven't had much opportunity to get excited. It's hard to wait... I can't imagine ordering one...

Yeah, my wife and I got lucky. We had been planning on ordering one later this year, and then suddenly went into major scramble mode when Ford made their no-more-diesel-in-vans announcement. We then just stumbled onto a slightly used SMB, which wasn't quite what we wanted, but it was too good of a deal to pass on. We had to sell off a few vehicles after the fact which had planned to sell before getting an SMB, but it worked out.

We'll be dropping off the SMB the middle of next month to get a few mods done, which will take about 4 weeks, but even that will seem like an eternity.

Woot! My wire transfer came early and my DW is letting me leave a day early! I'll have my van Friday!

As far as the mods go I had a short list have SMB do, but I wound up negotiating up, and that was on top of buying over my initial budget. So I'll be waiting a long time to make the $$ mods. I'll just have to live with my van the way it is for now...
