The best pricing guide I have found is www.nadaguides.com All guides seem to still have errors.
Your Ford dealer has access to two publications that are very helpful in explaining what options are available and what they are. One is titled "2015 Transit "Whats Important". It is 72 pages long and describes all your choices. It does not give you the actual order code identification number/letter. The second publication is 18 pages long and is titled "Major Product Features". The second publication will give you the actual order codes. Between the two, you can determine what options you may want.I feel like Ford is missing out by having other websites offer build and pricing while they are not. They must lose out on some decent web traffic because of that. I find the set-ups for both of these pretty confusing. There are so many options for the Ford Transit. Asking the dealer for help making sense of it all will probably be really helpful.
You are correct. At my age (75) I need to make a decision sooner than I would if younger. Normally I would wait a year to let them sort out some of the inevitable bugs. Since it took me 2 years + to complete the Sprinter conversion, I need to get moving before the reaper shows up. The plan is to overlap the buy and sell so I keep a travel vehicle while building the Transit. I already have 18 CAD drawings completed for the Transit conversion. All I need is a Transit. I do need to drive the Transit to be sure it drives as well as the Sprinter. Now that I have some conversion experience and know where to source everything, I should be able to complete the Transit in a year.Orton at least still has his Sprinter and doesn't have to rush, mine's been sent to the crusher.
Then again he's got ten years on me so maybe I even more so have the luxury of waiting to sort it all out.
that is very true, you really have to see what exactly you need, almost having it down to a science will likely help. good to know it all in detail.Thanks. The next van conversion will definitely be better than the Sprinter. The Sprinter simply works for my application and am very happy with how it worked out. It is fun trying to fit everything wanted in a small box. But it can be done. Everyone has different needs so one design is not suitable for everyone. It helps to have everyone share so we can pick and choose from the many ideas.
