  1. Thanks for the update! I like the flat floor in the cargo van, but with a platform like yours and a half-width bed, there’d be a lower surface when seated on a chair or bed. Great photos, very helpful as I’m designing!
  2. Thanks everyone. I only saw the issue at one dealer, but it was on one or both headlight on each of the three vans I saw. 🤷‍♂️ Ended up with a van from a different dealer.

    Thanks. Making changes or just reading codes? Ok good to know. Thanks! Thanks. I need to do some more reading. I hadn’t made it all the way through that thread yet. May have to do my old Windows Vista laptop out of storage just for this. Almost did that a few wins ago to reprogram a radio.

    Anyone using ForScan wirelessly, via Bluetooth or WiFi on an iOS or android device? No laptop, I do all my internet surfing on my phone or iPad. Eyeing this adapter: https://www.amazon.com/OHP-Forscan-Adapter-Scanner-Android/dp/B06XJL31Z7 or this one: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07JFRFJG6
  5. I checked out a number of used 2015/2016 Gen2 Transit Connect Cargo vans today. Most of them had issues with water intrusion in the headlights. Some had visible cracking, others did not. How prevalent a problem is this? (Among FTCs; I’ve had other cars with plastic headlights and some get water inside, some don’t ). Any quick fixes or DIY solutions out there? Or is replacement the only option?
  6. Thanks for the link!
  7. Thank you for the link! That rod looks like the perfect size and shape. I appreciate the measurements, both of you and the platform! I’m 6’2” so being able to sleep on a platform that fits behind an extended driver seat is the dominant factor in my planning. Cant wait to se what else you cook up!

    Modify or Replace Driver's Seat?

    That would great, thanks. The PWFX mod is very cool, but before seeing that I was considering using some of these blocks I saw for a Jeep. Depending on the spacing between the bolt holes and the pin, I may need to drill/rout a notch in the side. Marinesurveyor, these may work for you too if it’s easier than getting square tubing cut/drilled.

    Modify or Replace Driver's Seat?

    Very cool mod! Is that raised disc to the right of the new longer bolt the back side of an indexing pin? Guessing you just drilled a hole for it? Are the other three mounting points the same?
  10. Great post! Love your build. Got a link to the curved shower tension rod you used? What are the dimensions of tour sleeping platform?

    Debating between a 2014+ Transit Connect and Promaster City..

    Thanks, 5150. You’re not that crazy. 🤪 Good info on the 2014 reliability and issues to date. I’m running into the same thing with 3-4 year old used, versus new. Great insight, thanks. I’m looking almost exclusively at cargo variants of both platforms. I’d take a wagon if I got a great deal on one, but nearly all of the passenger equipment would come out. I can count on one hand how many times I’ve carried more than one passenger in the last three years. That front passenger seat would stay flat most of the time!

    Debating between a 2014+ Transit Connect and Promaster City..

    Thanks everyone for the advice. I’m looking at used more than new, and the prices for Ford compact cargo vans are comparable to the Dodge/Ram PMCs, I imagine because there are more of the former on the road. I think the sales statistics I saw were 35k Transit Connects sold, versus 15k each for PMC and NV200.
  13. Hello! New here, researching vans before I make a purchase. Lots of great information here! Planning on a weekender/road tripper/camper small van and the leading contenders are the Transit Connect and Ram Promaster City. Anyone pick the Transit Connect over the PMC after driving both? Any particular dealbreakers? Thanks! Kevin
