Question Exterior Dimension Question

Well, I guess I'm committed now. Made my first purchase towards the new build.....a 20 lb propane cylinder! Had to start somewhere! Anyway, one of my first tasks will be to construct a parking pad for the beast. I will be purchasing a high-roof, extended, single rear wheel transit. Anyone out there with this configuration transit willing to measure the width of your van at the front and rear axles from outside of tire to outside of tire (assuming stock sized tires)? I've seen spec sheets with vehicle widths (excluding mirrors) anywhere from 81 to 83 inches but I don't know if the outside of the tires are flush with the body or not. Appreciate any help! Thanks!

Garage
The EL SRW has the same wheelbase/footprint as the LWB. The stock tires are close to the edge of the sides, so 78" or so would be the minimum width for your pad assuming you don't need any concrete to step onto when getting in and out.

Thanks for taking the time Asdrew! Were your measurements taken from a wagon or a cargo van?
