Thanks for the clarification. Glad to know I didn't risk my status with the portholes.

By the way, saw on the main page you recently got married. Congratulations and best wishes! And thank you for the work you do on this site. It is a great resource to people with questions (and I have plenty).


The HHR Panel was built and sold as a modern day Panel. The window station wagon version was not allowed as it is simply a car.

I think they are vans. If the old panel trucks and windowless HHRs are "vans" then a Sprinter/Ram/Freightliners and Transits are all vans too. Our favorite classic bodies won't be around forever. TIme to embrace the new. Besides, they aren't all bad.

Sorry I wasn't clear, I meant they're called or classified as a Class B camper.
I'm saying there needs to be a distinction between a Classic Van and a Sprinter Type Van.
I get that they are Van's. I'm speaking about Campers IE: conversion vans converted to campers.
I wonder how an HHR converted into a full camper would be excepted into the Class B camper ONLY outing.

Sprinter class? Woudl they fall into the same category as Type IIs, Vanagons, Toyota vans, Subaru vans, and the rest an be imports or Eurovans? Maybe the REALLY late Dodge van class?

An HHR converted into a Clas B would be quite a tight squeeze. It would have ot be a hightop or a pop-top for sure.

Commercials keep referring to Pacificas as vans. I didn't think they were considered vans. What's the verdict? Just wondering...I'm not getting one.

I get that they are Van's just not van's in a traditional sense.

HHRs can only enter if they are a factory panel

if you mean the Chrysler, then yes, it's a marketed and sold as a minivan, so it's allowed.

Thanks Astro....I was just wondering. I hadn't heard of them being referred to as vans until recently.
