    Ram ProMaster VAN, anyone driving one ?

    We are needing a couple of new vans in the very near future,
    is anyone driving the Ram ProMaster Van ?
    We are concerned they are front wheel drive with a small engine.
    We are looking at the low roof with 136 inch wheel base.
    Thanks, Dan

    Just bought one for my new tech. Partly to try, other part is due to lack of fords or Chevys. Found several used fords for 25 range. I got my pro master for around 29. With bin package. They only make a bin package for the 136 currently. It's loaded out and driving great. That's a hard hitting engine. And being front wheel drive it's has better turn radius. It handles great. Can't wait to hire another and buy another. They've been doing it in the caravans forever and those things run like a spotted ape.

    Don't know what my companies gonna do when it comes time for new trucks, all ours are pretty new. Mine only has 24,000 miles on it but we drive a ton, it's 101 miles to my first call tomorrow.

    They may be ugly but I would love to work out of one of the new service vans with the high top, Ford Transit, Dodge Promaster, sprinter.

    Why would you guys get the low top versions. Seems like a wasted opportunity!

    So far after 3 fill ups fully loaded averaging 14-15 mpg mostly intown stop and go traffic. Roughly 1500-2000 in the back at all times. More when equipment is in it.

    Do you guys have ladders on top? I'd love a high top but I'd hate to have to get the ladders off even with a swing down rack.

    My 2014 sprinter dually 140 wheelbase is getting setup this week, I'll let you guys know. Swing down ladder rack on both sides. Got to be better than a silverado with utility cap that I got now.

    The ladder rack is going on next week. Double side let down. Then using the system to hang six footer from inside roof of cab area. It's getting where we need a 6',8', and 24' at all times
