That 2013 H/C van looks really clean for the price.

One thing that I will add to this discussion - consider the GVWR differences between the e250 and e350. I have a 2003 e250 with a fiberglass high-top and after completing building it out (using all wood), I am right at the GVWR of 7,500-ish lbs. While this hasn't caused any issues yet, it means that when I add in a few passengers and/or tow something occasionally, I have definitely exceeding the weight rating (something that i never considered when originally looking at vans).

In hindsight, i'd likely only purchase an e350 in the future with a full-float rear axle.

Jboles, thanks for the tip on Rockmotorcars. Looks like they have a good inventory. Itís far from here but it may be what it takes.

Nyyankees588, you’re on it, GVWR was exactly what I was getting at with my (long) question. There seem to be more E250s than E350s available but I need to be sure that it can handle the weight my build out. Mine will probably not be as extensive as many others so it’s possible that the E250 can handle it. But don’t want to make a mistake either.
