Opinions on “Euro” style cargo vans at runs - February 20th 2019 5:46 pm

Been a vanner for about 12 years now. I love my 78 Chevy but I’m curious what the community thinks of euro style vans at runs. I need a big cargo van for my business and I’d love to bring a van with ac and better mileage to runs. Just wondering if a dodge pro master would get me duct taped to my chair if I showed up in one.

I've never been anywhere that didn't welcome them. In fact I've seen at least one almost every truck-in I've been to in the last few years. Mostly Sprinters but a few others.
But, as you know, vanners will duct tape you to your chair if they get the chance no matter what you're in ....... grin

Thanks catfish. Yeah I just can’t swing a work van and a play van so I’d rather make it one in the same and then I can pretty her up and deduct it from my taxes! Also the mileage improvement and AC is a huge plus.

I wouldn't think there would be an issue with a euro van, although I have noticed that some long-time vanners seem to have a certain hostility towards anything that wasn't produced by the big 3 before 1979. A Promaster has a dodge logo on it though, so you can probably fool them lol.

yeah

There were 3 Bills at a VanRun. All the cool Guys were named Bill. One Bill had a Decked out Sprinter with a convo inspiring spaced out paint job. It had lights music mirrors and a high quality Brass pole. Real practical entertainment setup.
I definitely remember a Bar.
Need to let that guy in the big Van in... cheers

I've known a few "old time" vanners who bought those that really liked them. All that room and the MPG too. You can haul the entire Hooters second shift ....... laugh
