Low top conversion vans are great if you need to fit your van inside a standard garage. The downside, of course, is less head room, forcing you to crouch over like a hunch back to move about the van. But did you know the new RAM ProMaster Low Top conversion van has a foot more head room than a GMC or Chevy Explorer Low Top AND will still fit in your garage!

If you are considering an Explorer conversion van on the Chevy Express 1500 chassis, you may want to take a peak at the ProMaster 1500 low top conversion van instead. Besides being much more fuel efficient, there is also far more interior room and plenty of other advantages. It is currently being converted by Sherrod and is available exclusively at Paul Sherry Conversion Vans. Take a look below at the Low Top vs Low  Top comparison:
