Re: top

Well, depending on your skill level, you may be able to move it to practically anything you want....

If your question is "Will an Econoline SMB penthouse top bolt up to a Sprinter?" the answer is "not without a lot of fiberglass work and possibly additional rail mounting mods"......

Are you handy with fiberglass work?

Re: top

Fiberglass is the last thing I want to work with, except for trimming and fitting.
I guess the metal work your mention is to solidify the Sprinter cut out top to receive the penthouse !?

I love this E350, 7.3 van, except underneath it start to look like a syphilis attack on everything metal (bad storage from previous owner). Maybe a used E350 is a more easy solution.

Thanks

That's very do-able.........some folks here have done transplants.....here is a thread that starts out with a transplant, or at least removal from a donor van.
