Van envy

I saw this killer van coming into Woodland Park today. It's designed by Mercedez Benz and assembled by Freightliner. I think they have either V6 diesel or gas engines. Super roomy. I really wanted to look inside of it but I didn't wanna be creepy. I never thought I'd be so into vans.

V6 Mercedes-Benz 3.0-liter turbo-diesel is what they are putting in them now days.

I drove one for two yrs for my work van. Very impressive vans, handles extremely well for a high profile vehicle and got about 16-18 mpg at 80mph. Only draw back for me was lack of AWD, which I currently have with my GMC work van.

Anyway, you could make a killer ‘home-made’ camper out of one of the ‘plain jane bare bones’ work van versions imo. They also come as a ‘passenger’ van but that model has windows all way around.

I would love to swap a tdi in my van but I just don't know much about them and I'm pretty sure I'd have to re-gear the trans.

I knew you had a GMC van but I did not know it was AWD.

Last night I was searching for pics on the Benz van and found a guy that made a super cool camper out of one and uses it to travel around in and windsurf.

Wanted to ask if you knew of the trails that I found last night down near Colorado Wine? I found 3 new ones to check out and none of them have any signs designating them as foot traffic only.
