Clist add, in Denver very interesting van

Those bodies are neat! I've seen a couple camper build-outs using them, and they add just enough volume to seem it feel Sprinter-like inside, but with the durability of the E-series. Fuel economy should be at least as good as a stock body.

Note this one DOES have the TorqueShift option, since it's build on the cutaway chassis, which means it also has a full-float 7,800# rear axle since has the rear fuel tank as well.

I've seen these vans and have wondered about making one into a camper. The lack of a side door does limit floorplan options, since you would need to keep the rear door(s) accessible to get in/out as I'm not sure how practical crawling through the cab every time would be.

Plus I see some real safety issues using this design as a camper.
