Wine country tours here (I'm 25 miles from Napa Valley) use these van setups. The bourgeoisie love them.

I know this thread is oldish, but the richest guy I've every met (billionaire) rides around in a custom sprinter. His security guys drive a matching GL450. The sprinter is set up with satellite TV, wifi, four recliners with tables, fridge, etc. Private jet level of fit and finish.

The thing keeping the ultra wealthy out of a transit isn't the fact that it is a van, it's the blue oval on the front.

My question is how are the seats in this thing secured if you can move them around with a tablet?

I do not understand why a three slice pizza is supposed to be higher status.
Pizza is good, no question, but with the majority of Americans suffering weight problems, you may not want one on your grill.

And if Lincoln was capable of any industry leadership, they would do a van. They already have the platform.

Aftermarket upfitters are the ones making the "nice" stuff, always have been. You cannot, and will not, buy a delivery van made into a limousine from a manufacturer like Ford or Mercedes.
