Greetings! First off I wanted to thank everybody that contributes to this forum! A year ago I never envisioned myself building my own rv but after several months of research, I've convinced myself I can do it. Initially I started with the intent of buying a used class b rv. I was surprised at how expensive 10+ year old models were. That evolved into buying a pre-2007 (T1N) Sprinter and converting it. Research showed the T1N would run forever but rust could be a problem. Since I did not want to put a lot of time, $ and effort into a conversion just to see it rust out within a few years, I decided to look into the Transit. The good folks here have a lot of positive things to say about the Transit. The wealth of information available on this forum has given me several design ideas already.....so begins my search for a used, HR, Extended Transit!
