Thought I would introduce myself here. I'm been long time lurker since last year and just like many, I couldn't hold out any longer. I guess once you are bitten by van bug, there is no cure. (not that I need cure)
Even though I wasn't ready to pull the trigger I have been scouting the internet for used E-series van, Express, and Sprinter van for many months.
I'm pretty much set on getting E-series but still open minded on others (why can't I just make up my mind!), sportsmobile poptop and then finally Agile 4x4 at some point. Interior will probably be done by me. Nothing fancy, just simple stuff first to get ready for camping season as soon as possible.
I read many threads about choosing the right van and really appreciate the wisdom people share here. But I soon realized reading and actually experiencing is a too very different thing. For an example, I think I wanted E350 EB 7.3 in my mind but as of right now I'm not so sure I would feel the same way after getting it. I guess that's part of being a noob.
For me, even b/n RB and EB is big question I guess. The only way for me to found out is actually driving the van and get acquainted, so it's either test drive at the dealer or rent the van, drive daily to see if it's for me. Oh yeah, it would be really cool to drive converted van daily to work but parking might be an issue since outdoor parking space is limited where I work.
Anyway, thanks all for the wisdom and wealth of info shared here! l dream of starting build thread sooner than later.
