Hello all,

I'm totally new into US vans,i drove pick-up trucks all the time, and i wonder
if vans have seperate chassis, just like pu-trucks?
and what's with their E-150, E-250, E-350 indication?

Thanks,

Bart

for many is seems a silly question, but keep in mind please that i live outside the US of A and over here we hardly have any US build transportation!
so i don't have a chanche to go out on the street and look under a van or so.

Hi Bart! DK about the chassis, but the designations stand for (according to Maryland State Police) chassis weight: E-150 = 1/2 Ton, E-250 = 3/4 Ton & E-350 = 1 Ton and therefore the cargo capacity. My E-350 has a capacity of 4,400 lbs. Hope this helps.

Bart to answer your question. Yes the E series vans have a separate chassis.

Thanks a lot guys!
That gives food for new thoughts.
driving PU Trucks for more than 18 years now, and still really liking them, but this enormous nose, and i can do better with all this "lost" space. Over here in Europe they are pritty strict in outside sizes, as length, because we are in short supply of as many space you in the us of a have...
so what i'm thinking, with a seperate chassis and the same classifiction as PU Trucks, i can do the same but in a shorter package..., or have more livingroom in a campervan for that .

POSITIVE!!!
