Power sliding door kit?

Anyone installed a power sliding door kit on A full size transit? I want one, but not willing to spend $2500 to get it? Thanks for any suggestions?

European transits dont have them, not even as an option.

Not sure if this vendor was already mentioned somewhere else on the forum.
I haven't done any research about whether it's available in the US or not, but thought I'd share for anyone else to dig into.
Stumbled across this video when looking at the Euro transit videos on youtube.com

What about trying to incorporate something like this to help ease the required force to open the door? I was thinking it could be mounted and attached in the lower channel. Should make it easier for the kids.
