  • Dodge Sprinter

    My small plumbing service business has survived the very risky first year and I am soon going to outgrow my little Chevy Astro cargo-van. I have been researching work vans and I really like the Dodge Sprinter!
    I don't like regular cargo vans because they are not quite big enough, and I know I'll quickly outgrow them just like I did the Astro. (Chevy express, etc.) I don't like box trucks because they are too bulk and hard to maneuver around these narrow, curvy, steep mountain roads here.
    The Dodge sprinter is JUUUUST RIGHT! Expensive, but they get a ton of miles out of them.

    Anyone have a sprinter, and how do you like it?

        We have 2, so far so good. No problems. Lots of room and reasonable mileage.

          Thanks, I already did a search and read all the old threads. But trucks are fun and I am sure we could use yet another truck discussion.

                Thats wrong thinking in my business. The less stuff on the truck, the more trips back to my shop or the supply house and thats wasting TIME AND GAS.

                    You hit the nail on the head. The gas prices have actually made me realize how a bigger truck would actually be MORE efficient and economic... as backwards as it sounds, its true.

                      It sure is nice. Now if only I can find a way to afford one.

                          Congratulations on making it your first year. It takes a lot of guts to go out on your own like that.

                            For what this is worth in my area FedEx is using the 2500 series Sprinter trucks. This is due to narrow streets. They like them except that they are top heavy and in strong cross winds either will roll onto their side or they sure seem like they will. The 3500 with duals in the rear are bigger but also said to be more stable and especially if loaded correctly. Be sure to get a Turbo Charged Diesel Engine with inner cooler. Gasoline engine models drink too much gasoline.

                              I want one so bad, I have decided to stay in my astro for awhile until I can afford to get one. I'll wait until I can at least pay for half of it in cash. The economy is too unstable for me to finance the whole thing.
