Transits on the Road

Drove Detroit to Cleveland and back today.
Saw a mid roof cargo first, then an auto hauler w/ four of 'em including a diesel high roof extended cargo on I-80 Eastbound, and on the return a low roof cruising I-75 Northbound in Michigan.
Way behind schedule, but they're finally HERE!

Saw a Mid-roof LWB WAGON (blue jean color) on the road. Did not see if it had "M" plates.
NICE

Saw a white cargo medium roof at the dealership on Van Dyke and Eleven Mile in Warren/Centerline today, and a silver cargo mid roof along with a white cargo mid roof w/clear windows all the way 'round at Fourteen Mile and John R today. They're arriving, but the sales staff are still clueless. I had more fun chatting with the teen porter that was trying to park the silver one by himself, he was very appreciative when I stepped in and assisted him with hand signals.
I told him about my Sprinter and what I had been doing with it, he said "That is SO awesome. One day when I'm older I hope I can do that, maybe when I'm like thirty"

While heading into downtown on I-90 tonight about 7:30 PM I saw a semi going east with three of them on it drop deck trailer. All were 148" WB mid roof white vans. Looks like somebody east of Cleveland is about to get a delivery.

Gillingham Ford on Brookpark rd. in Parma got two late last week (Ford's inventory web site showed them delivered over 2 weeks ago). I watched them unload. Then I went inside and scheduled a test drive for Monday 7/28.
Both are 148" WB mid roof vans.
One is white with a 3.7.
The other is Silver with a 3.5 ecoboost.

The blue one I saw may have been a cargo after reading your post?
It had CLEAR windows all the way around, happened fast, did not notice any seats
