This thing looks sweet. The compact exterior and drivability of a minivan but has great space and weight capacity.

Great mpg and amazing creature comforts.

I could see myself going this route with a etm.

Check it out!

They were making this as a Dodge a good 6-7 years. I looked at one with 150,000 miles and the driver probably smoked 50,000 cigarettes in it. Was not sure what the original color was. Headliner was brown. It was a 2006 IIRC

I don't understand what your saying?

I know the caravan has been available for years but this thing is made for weight and the back seems to built for rugged work.

There was a C/V version with no back seats and a bulkhead behind front seats.

I didn't realize that.

But it still looks like they weren't really beefed up as much as this one will be.

A lot of Fords ARE euro trash. They call it global platforms, streamline production.

Why an ETM? Just throw in a smaller TM...
I would only do an etm if i could have it self contained power without the use of a gas generator.

Like the aurora system or one that i think i can design myself.

Yes they are much improved . We built 300 cargo vans a day. If anyone wants new I can check into discounts.
