Now I understand why there is no driver's side slider available on the Wagon.

Since I'm still kind of PTSD six months following the totaling of my Sprinter I'm now wondering if I should start with a wagon since I want the windows anyways. Will have to measure how my floor plan would effect side bag deployment, if it would protect my people sleeping on my sideways gaucho and bunk without interfering with it I just might give it some more consideration.

All I know is the guy that hit me head on was reportedly going over 100 mph while attempting to pass six vehicles in his MB 500 SL on a two lane bridge. We both survived.

Yup. Guess the shock flipped my photos around too!

Though large passenger vans are involved in a proportionate number of fatal accidents compared to their share of the light-vehicle population, a 2002 study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration found they are involved in a higher number of single-vehicle accidents involving rollovers than other passenger vehicles.
Owning an E series with the wallowing twin I-Beam suspension I can understand that. You do have to pay attention and keep both hands on the wheel. I does isolate you from the potholes pretty well though.

There is an option for a slider on driver side as well but it is "late availability"
On the Wagon? Probably only on the cargo van.

Aggressively passing on a bridge sounds like a sure-fire way to dive into a whatever body of water you are over. Lucky no one got too hurt.

I've seen this super huge airbag inflated, but i'd like to see how it works in a crash test with dummies and the whole nine yards.
