Default New Modular RV for all Sprinter series vans:)

Hello all,

I know that you like what you see.

Also, we will be featured in the 58th annual RVIA show 10 and 20 second commercials - to be aired in (2) weeks. We will be at the show selling units, if anyone is interested, our unit (170" WB) will be at the show.

With regard to this website's tax advice - as the saying goes: check with your accountant before making such a claim. The IRS may not be happy with it.

Other observations: Notwithstanding occasional pictures of T1Ns, this product may be only for NVC3s (look at the specification page and at the wheel base references).

As for the internal widths: the specification width for a NVC3 is 70.1 inches (http://www.sprinter-source.com/forum...ead.php?t=3746). The Escape pod is 62 inches on the specification page, and 72 inches on the expeditor page.

Thanks:):) I will have my web guy fix the measurment to reflect 62"

Lastly, we can fabricate a unit for the pre - 2007 model years -no problem - just 2" narrower.

Best regards,


Tom Allen

Interesting concept Tom, and good luck with it.

May I suggest your website would benefit from more product specific images in place of the multitude of generic vehicle manufacturers' ones?

Interesting concept, how some actual photos of completed units? Especially the expediter package.

i was just checking out the website. tom, if there is anything i dislike worse than misspelled words, (not saying there is any on your website) it is inconsistency. which is it, five minutes to load and unload, or ten?

I know my own criticism is intended constructively, I just felt that when I looked at the website that there were lots of large images of compatible vehicle types and only smaller images of the product, which itself seems worthy of more than a second look (if only one could).
