    Loosing Faith

    You bought used or new. If used the person work horse it hard. The Transit Connect department of US Ford will not reply back, that I have found out. The Transit Connect is Ford edsel of today. I have had small problems Overdrive warning came on and down to no speed turn off engine was OK. Blind spots looking thru mirrors they should have brought EU style mirrors. When it rains door openings are wet. It gets squirley in rain have to do most of the time between 50 to 55. Going thru mountains it is in overdrive most of the time. Going thru mountains on turns it wants to go high in turn. Going thru mountions turn AC off or become a bug on semi tractor hood. Brakes are very squirley too. I saw person in Flordia that had about 75 cement blocks in it.

    fold out bed

    As of now no one I know of are making that type seat bed. I was thinkin maken a trifold bench seat bed add ext to front that with leg supports and try have it able to fold back when not in use. It need be high cooler so you can slide under the seat. If at that high all you need to do is fold down front seats. I put a full size air mattress on boxes and was able strech out that way, I have a twin air mattress on floor now and hits back door front seats. I have a trifold in a full size van, when made into a seat gives you even more room behind and under the guy made it square steel to hold 320 his size. There is lighter metal square what holds electrical on top ceiling.
