Have you even driven one of these vans yet? Man a test drive tells you a lot!
I have looked the the Transit. Visited Sportsmobile West and spent 2 days looking at all options. I live in the tropics and will be spending most my time off-road in jungle, rivers and mud. The Transit is nice, just too large a profile. I like the Ford and Chevy RB because of the lower height, and I don’t need a lot of storage, only enough for me and camera gear, maybe an inflatable kayak and SCUBA diving gear. Also diesel is cheaper here, but I need the older models because of the high sulphur content.
