Also the cargo volume and payload capacities.

The inside height, especially the high roof model, should make them excellent as a tour vehicle. However, the windows do not open so if the a/c would fail or if people want to take pictures, then they are out of luck.
If slide open windows are an option, I would certainly get them.

Is there anyone using B100 in their sprinter. I found a gas station selling B-99 for the last four months. Among their customers are Freightliner Cargo vans, and a few Sprinters. I have access to a constant source of used canola oil, and would like to start making my own fuel, however, after investing $35,000 in a vehicle I am concerned about this fuel. Any anticipated problems, or reservations? I understand that Biodiesel has been used in Europe for several years, and the rate of production is going up at about 35% per year. The owner's manual states that only #2 diesel fuel is to be used, but then later it approves up to 50% kerosene in cold climates. Any info would be appreciated.

We ordered ours with no windows, we plan to use rv style windows, slide for travel and torque for camping.

Did you order it with full sheet metal sides? What about seats?
Does a customizer shop cut out spaces for the windows and install a window system which allows insertion of two different kinds of window? By "slide" windows I assume these have a fixed half and a sliding half which opens half of the window area. What are "torque" windows?

Yes it was ordered full sheet metal, you can do it your self or take it a body shop, torque windows allows you to keep some air circulation when parked even with a light drizzle, but you can't use'em while vehicle is moving see> www.hehr-international.com also www.crlaurence.com/ProductPages/showLine.asp?GroupID=16124&Path=::2085::16124

the reason is the 80 pounds of air in the tires. you can lower it but it will effect mpg
