New Encap Van?
#1
We got our new Transit in a couple of days ago. It's really cool and drives and handles nice. Best thing is it gets nearly three times the fuel mileage of the standard vans (pigs).

Can't wait to get it wrapped!

Nice Richard, are you going to use it for the Cimex's and Orbot's?

Put a small TM in it? Really thinking about one of these....

I too have wondered if it would handle a little TM, & say 70 gal tanks...

Yes Cimex and Orbots. Sapphire has a Rage in the Transit but I think they had to build a frame work that bolts to the frame. Can't boltu to the composite floor.

Sliding doors each side is great.

Looks very similar to the VW Caddy, apart from the doors each side.

Onya mate.

Yep, think you will really like it Richard!

Unbelievably 'zippy' for the sewing machine that powers them!

I really liked mine (pre-total last year) except difficult to keep warm below -20 or so, very hard when really cold... don't think you will face those issues too often. :-). In the summer, it was AWESOME. Wrap is really effective because of shape.

Even with the hassles, I tried to buy two this year to replace the wrecked one... Way too difficult to get an order placed and bought the Caravan/Town & Countrys... DEFINETLY more comfortable/warmer, BUT wowowowow! Do I ever notice the gas usage difference!

Coby how did it do on the winter streets? I remember you couldn't get up your drive but other than that was it ok?

This is actually our second one but the other is just plain white waiting on the wrap. I'd like to get another but I'm a little worried about the winter.

How did you're get totaled?

-Richard, driving not bad, but I always switch to winter "Blizzack" tires here: those tires couldn't be used as the pressure requirements were too high. I also had to get really used to the "automatic slip" control or whatever they called it... very confusing for old guy to put the pedal on the floor and not have a response but to maybe 3 miles/hour (when slipping).

This is actually our second one but the other is just plain white waiting on the wrap. I'd like to get another but I'm a little worried about the winter. -The vans are not like having a 110 fresh water tank/TM/waste tank over the rear axle: they can be a bit "slippy", but once your tech(s) are used to it, they should do fine.

How did you're get totaled? Very slippery warm day a fellow ran a red light... 20mph my front end hit his side and slid my right side into his car. Van virtually brand new with a nearly 3000. wrap: still totalled: they do bend.
