Default The ultimate work van

Check this out:

This thing is sooooo cool I hope that they will to the market soon! Even if they only manage to get half the features in, it would still be amazing!

Okay, it's great, but they had the wrong tools in the van.

I also need it to be able to turn into a camper for the weeks I go to Montana.

I understand that they're shutting down production of the Titans and Armadas to switch over the plant to their commercial truck production. Just maybe.........

Admittedly a lot of attractive gadgets. I almost put an inverter in the F350 I used to have. Being able to have 110 right there, very convenient. Looks like a little competition for the Sprinter. Certainly though the model demonstrated was laid out far more for your clipboard types than fill the back with tools guys. Though I did notice on the dash, favorite feature, BIG knobs. Ever try to change stations with winter or work gloves on?

Why would you wear gloves in winter? (Picture a palm-tree smiley here...)

At 2:13 it looks like the teleportation machine from the fly! (1986 version)

These vehicles are long over due here. I have upfitted vans for 15 years and it's still the same old un-adaptable crap. Unfortunately that thing looks like a candy store to our crack head thieves in Chicago.

We actually caught a group breaking into our van at a service call, Tech called the cops and they were arrested on site! Went to court and they got slapped on the wrist. It only costs us 4,000.00 to fix the damage to the vehicle.

When they flipped the passenger side open for the workbench I was thinking what a great bar that would make. I think they need a fridge!

I want one.

CK,

I don't know of any collaboration, but there are some options that you could take advantage of:

TANOSmobil - Einspannen&Losfahren
TANOSmobil - Einspannen&Losfahren

These are links in this thread: Festool/Tanos Systainer Van System - Sprinter-Forum on the Dodge Sprinter forum (a van that's made by Mercedes I believe). In this thread is also a very nice Systainer storage setup in a Sprinter.

You'll have to join the forum, but it's free and caters to professional tradesmen.

Regards,

Dan.
