If I lived in San Francisco or LA where parking is difficult I am sure I would go shorter. The mid roof, in my opinion, is the only way to go.
We are considering purchasing a 130" wheelbase Transit medium roof for an R&D build setup for use as a weekend sports wagon.
Most folks here go with the 148" wheel base high roof but we sort of like the shorter length and height for compactness and convenience in the city. Chances are my daughter will be driving it around and parking in the metro area. She works hard during the week and likes to bike, ski, kiteboard, paddle board or hike on the weekends.
We'll likely build it out with a rear bed with storage underneath, a house system with battery, small inverter and solar panel. Small Fridge, a freshwater drinking/rinsing tank with pump and spigot. We'll add a roof vent with a fresh air inlet. Thoroughly insulated with 3M Thinsulate(TM) of course. Maybe some other goodies yet to be determined.
Thoughts? Pros and Cons of the shorter wheel base. We aren't tall folks so just enough head room for us in the medium roof.
Would be cool to have it converted to a 4x4...
Just a plan at this time.. Reality has a knack of getting in the way.
