Looked at Mini-vans, SUVs, and Full-sizers. Minivan was ruled out as it could not pull the boat, SUV was hard on gas, and Ford/GM full size was not too good on gas either and drove like slugs and did not handle as nice. The Sprinter drives much smaller than it is, is easy to park, great visibility, handles well, and hauls 8 very comfortably. I tinited the windows and did the M-B grille and badge conversion and it looks great! It is fun to drive and everyone is always checking it out. Draws a small crowd at the truck stop fueling up. Love those high-speed diesel pumps!
Avg. of 26mpg is great! Lots of room. Heated windshield, heated seats and Aux Heater is awesome in the winter! Seats are comfortable. Great power/acceleration around town. Best cruise control I have ever used. Easy to clean floor!
Tilt steering would be nice (but is comfortable as is), larger parabolic mirror on pass. side, more speakers/better sound system, remove speed limiter (set at 85mph)
