It's easy to black out windows for privacy. There's also companies that make window films to protect against vandalism or even light gunfire.

Put reflectix in em and leave it there unless you need light, that's what I did.

86Scotty is right, reflectix helps a great deal, for warmth too.

Re: thinking of up grading / switching vans

like carring said on another thread the passenger will be cleaning and more options...and in my case in cali the has different plates that will be cheaper....

it does have cruise control and aero lights

have to run the vin to see what trans and gears in the rear..... no hitch but theres a 7pin plug on the back...

then theres what the odds of selling my cargo van quick?????

Re: thinking of up grading / switching vans

Another plus of a Club Wagon is the increased visibility while you drive. It's nice to look over your left or right shoulder and look back through the side windows when you're in traffic merging on to a busy road.
