Well, a lot of folks want a big RV type van. We just don't have room for it, and are hoping to keep ours more mini van size (although even the 118 is bigger than most). I just think they are great vans and they all sound like good candidates for WVO conversions.

Post the pics so we can have a look. We're probably looking for a passenger van however.

I work for FedEx Express. My Sprinter has got around 380000 miles on it and it isn't scheduled for "retirement" yet. So, needless to say any used FedEx vehicle is pretty well broke in. You'll probably be seeing fewer of them because FedEx has stopped purchasing them. Mainly due to high maintenance costs and corrosion problems.
The paint job is actually just decals that peel off. The actual reason FedEx doesn't resell them is for liabilty. There was a case a few years ago where an ex-FedEx vehicle was involved in a traffic fatality and the victims family tried to sue FedEx because they felt it was related to maintenance performed when FedEx owned the vehicle. So, now they're scrapped for parts then crushed.

Default My 2005 sprinter van

I looked across the country for one on autotrader. If you search for sprinter on autotrader you will see about 100k listings.

Also you can use crazedlist:
http://www.crazedlist.org/index.cgi

It took my about 4 months to find the one I bought. I was looking specifically for one with two sliders and windows in sliders and in back with cruise control, air, tow hitch, and a second row bench seat.

I was able to get all the above except for the two sliders, although it did come with alarm and keyless entry. This van I bought was VERY lightly used for a medical delivery company (63k). Had no black death, no leaky transmission, and runs great. On top of that it was only 2.5 hours away up in Seattle area.

I was considering vans here in Portland, in Chicago, down in Texas, and in the Carolinas at the time.

Love the one I got and in a few weeks it will be running off the 200 gallons of veggie oil that I have filtered and stored in my back yard .
