FYI: on the link above.
I have tops for EB and RB available and can install. I have a 460 E350 available as well I will be swapping the 2wd trans out soon to 4x4 and building it out! Price is less sooner than later!

Thank you for posting those for me, really appreciate it
I'm wondering a bit! Have you decided what you really want because the ones you mentioned are not the same! One is an RB and the other is EB which for starters will handle differently, on and off road, it will spec out differently as far as layout, and power will be less on a EB due to heavier weight and weight capacity if built fully to it's limit and space! Although there appears to be no difference they are. Even parking for grocery shopping!

Iím actually thinking of sticking with RB mainly because of the length of the vehicle. Itís already going to be much bigger than Iím used to so I want to make it easier on myself if I can.

Parking in SLO is a bitch with the EB. I've had 2 and know first hand. The RB is pretty easy, even in DT where you have to parallel.

I mentioned your selection because sometimes we can get distracted and all over the map. I was just trying to narrow your search and save you wasted time in a unit that will not fit you as far as driving patterns are concerned!

mikracer: Parking in SLO is a bitch with the EB. I've had 2 and know first hand. The RB is pretty easy, even in DT where you have to parallel.

Thanks mikracer! mikracer only confirms my point on the issue of every other day or monthly trip driving. Around town is hard in an EB if you are not experienced or use to big vehicles. Longer Mercedez and Sprinters also fall into this category. Do not get involved with something you will struggle with operating or it takes the fun out of the main purpose of getting one! Pic floor plans and whether you buy it ready or build it Stay focused.
