Comments Off on Van Conversion Types and Converters
The term conversion van covers a broad range of vehicles. In its most basic elements, a conversion van is a van that can be converted into a bunch of different things. In order to understand the different types, and help you choose which one suits your needs, we will go into detail about the van conversion types and converters.

Comments Off on Sherry RAM Conversion Vans Are The Ultimate Tailgating Van
When you think of tailgating, do not forget to consider the RAM conversion van. While most people do not picture a van for tailgating, the RAM conversion van actually checks off all the boxes of what you want for this type of vehicle and even throws in some bonus features.
Rear Doors Swing Fully Open
One of the great things about the RAM conversion van is that the rear doors swing open completely. This means that you can easily access the interior while tailgating, eliminating the need to waste time unloading all your gear from the vehicle. Or just take advantage of the widely opening rear doors to easily get your gear like a cooler, chairs, or even grill out of the van, so you can start tailgating without struggling to remove items from the car.

When you are looking for your next conversion van, the van that it is based on is just as important as the conversions you choose.

Take a closer look at how the new RAM conversion vans compare to the new GMC conversion vans so you can better choose which one to select for your needs.
RAM Van Advantages
You may have a slightly easier time finding RAM conversion vans than GMC ones, at least in the form of new models, because these autos convert much easier to a wide range of applications. RAM vans are commonly turned into mobility vans, limo vans, shuttles, and more. This easier conversion comes from the RAM van’s comparatively larger doors and lower height for stepping in than the GMC van. [...]

Comments Off on Updates and Changes for the 2017 RAM ProMaster Conversion Van Chassis
Those interested in a 2017 RAM ProMaster will appreciate the range of updates the automaker added for this year. Thanks to the updates, it is now easier than ever before to upfit the van, resulting in a better conversion from our team here at Paul Sherry.

The most exciting change for most drivers is the adjustments to the cutaway and chassis cab models that will improve upfitting.

Essentially, it lets the upfits be applied in a flusher way, enhancing the quality and ease of these upfits. To make upfitting even better, the ProMaster also now comes standard with wiring prep for rear speakers and upfit interface connectors, regardless of the model you look at.

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 [...]

Heck, even Jay Cutler and Kirk Cousins will want to join that club.
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
Investing in a conversion van can be a beneficial move that provides you with the ability to take many passengers comfortably down the road. Many conversion vans can seat seven to nine passengers, and they may have comfortable seating, entertainment accessories and other amenities.

What Is Front-Wheel Drive?

In addition to providing more head and leg room, door entrances are wider and taller than the models manufactured by the competition.

Comments Off on Sherry ProMaster Conversion Van: This Isn’t Your Uncle’s Hippy Van
Hey all you flower children of the 60’s!
Consider a New Conversion Van to replace your old, musty, historical, paint splattered and Woodstock weary van. You may want to grab your cane, walker, oxygen tank or whatever assistance you require in this modern age and come on over to Paul Sherry Vans to check out their new ProMaster Conversion Van; but hang on to your hat and your pacemaker because they sure don’t make ’em like they used to. And that, my friends, is a good thing!
Fortunately, with the maturity rate of the young and rebellious, came changes to the conversion van industry as the hippies began to marry and raise families.

Comments Off on Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Conversion Van vs Ram ProMaster Conversion Van
Thinking of a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Conversion Van? Think again!
When it comes to choosing between the Mercedes Sprinter Conversion Van and other Conversion Vans on the market, the total cost of ownership can be a significant factor in your decision. For many years, the Mercedes Sprinter was thought to be the only “Euro” style conversion van on the market. But not anymore! The Ram ProMaster Conversion Van has “Euro” Van styling with qualities like nothing else in production! With features like front wheel drive, taller interior height and a lower cost of ownership, the Ram Promaster will be a common choice for those browsing for a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Conversion Van.

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 Low-Top Conversion Vans: Ram ProMaster Vs Chevrolet Express/GMC Savana
When you’re considering a Conversion Van for road trips and camping, consider the “Low Roof” Ram ProMaster by Sherry Vans. The ProMaster has been on the market for about a year now and it’s proving its versatility. It compares favorably to the Chevrolet/GMC Express/Savanna platform that is so popular with van conversions nowadays, and it offers today’s buyers exciting new features you can’t find anywhere else. The market seems to say that the low top vans have made something of a comeback as a platform for conversion vans. The Ram ProMaster is among the best prospects.
There are many reasons why the Ram Promaster is looking like the best option for low-top Conversion Van customers. The drive train is the most obvious one. Front wheel drive removes the rear drive train, lowers the floor, and allows for quite a lot of extra interior room. [...]
Comments Off on Ram ProMaster Fuel Economy: What We Know and What You Can Expect
The end of Mercedes and Chrysler’s automotive relationship also meant the end of the Sprinter as the commercial van of choice for Dodge division. Enter Fiat and emergence of its Ducato van as a replacement for the recently spun-off Ram brand. Now reformulated for American consumption, the Ram ProMaster
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. Whatever the numbers are, they’re probably much better than those of the old full-size Ram Van – a vehicle that enjoyed a 32-year-long run with relatively few changes.
What We Know
What we do know is this: under the hood of the Ram ProMaster is Chrysler’s stalwart 3.6-liter Pentastar six-cylinder engine. Coupled to a [...]
