Comments Off on A Sherry Van Road Trip: Sweet Caroline, What a Sweet Ride
My family hadn’t visited relatives down south in over two years. Back then, we had rented a far-too-small minivan, drove all night and arrived in Hilton Head exhausted. This time would be different.
Early Saturday morning, in front of our Kansas City home, my wife and I loaded luggage into our new RAM Sherry Conversion Van. Our oldest son, nearly six-foot tall at age 15, took a seat in the back, where he stretched his legs and promptly nodded off. Our younger two, Lisa and Eric, bickered over entertainment before focusing their sibling rivalry into a competitive round of Mario Kart displayed on the 36” HDTV.
“That beats coloring books and magnetic checkers for road-trip entertainment,” my wife commented as I pulled onto I-70.
“No kidding! With the kids occupied and plenty of leg room, we might be able to drive straight through instead of stopping [...]

Comments Off on Airstream Autobahn: Is It Really Worth $133,000?
This is an underdog story of high-top roofs, TVs and wood and leather, an underdog story of a slighted van coming back to best its bully – and it begins with the Dodge Sprinter.
A Tale of Two Vans
At the turn of the century, Mercedes-Benz sold a mammoth cargo van in the United States as a Dodge Sprinter. After a few years, Mercedes reclaimed the name, leaving Dodge and parent company Chrysler out in the cold. Once Fiat purchased Chrysler, Chrysler turned to its new father for help, and Fiat obliged. Up its sleeve it had the Fiat Ducato, a popular European van produced for three generations and trusted as a cargo van and motorhome. Built on the Ducato chassis and much to Mercedes’ chagrin, Chrysler unleashed the Ram ProMaster work and cargo van.
Comments Off on Conversion Vans: All Wheel Drive Vs Front Wheel Drive

What Is Front-Wheel Drive?

Comments Off on Ram ProMaster: The Ultimate Passenger Van?
The front-wheel drive Conversion Van is gaining in popularity because of its lack of a full-length drive train. This means that the interior of the cabin can be more spacious, and because the van rides closer to the road level, vertical interior space has increased. The Ram ProMaster Passenger Van is an excellent example of how a workable platform can be used to create a very nicely appointed cabin.
Advantages Of The Ram ProMaster
First and foremost, the platform upon which the ProMaster is built allows for plenty of weight for interior amenities without drastically reducing the fuel efficiency. The Ram ProMaster gets better fuel mileage than either of its closest competitors, namely the Chevrolet Express/GMC Savanna twins and the Ford Transit Conversion Van.
The low-riding design means a low-top appearance, but this should not be considered a minus when considering a new conversion [...]

Comments Off on Ram ProMaster Fuel Economy: What We Know and What You Can Expect

But the one question that’s on everyone’s minds is “how well it’ll do when it comes to fuel efficiency?” Since the ProMaster is exempt from EPA fuel economy testing, there aren’t any official claims just yet in terms of fuel economy.
