I'm glad I stumbled across this forum - I am hoping you can help clarify some questions I have because it seems nobody I talked to at the local dealerships have any clue.
This may ramble a bit, but here's the background - my wife is interested in a larger vehicle for our growing family - and last weekend at the Houston auto show while looking at minivans, she happened to see several conversion vans (by Explorer), one of which was the Transit.
Now she has the bug for a 9-seater.
Unfortunately Explorer only makes the 7-seater Transit conversion (they said Ford wont let them make it any larger??), and I am not a big fan of the 15-y.o GMC/Chevy vans - so now I am looking what we can do with an out-of-the-box Transit from Ford.
