I got a 159 was going to get the 136 but realized that would be no advantage to me at all. The 159 drives like a car and I can park it anywhere so far (after 2.5 weeks). The best decision I made, I wouldn't even consider a shorty for any reason! I love it!
I have a 118" WB. I got it to replace my 05, 118" wb Sprinter. When I first saw a Sprinter, I liked it, but it was huge.Even though it was the same wb as the Ford I was driving, the height made it look like a monster, so I opted for the 118", a shorter monster. But now I'm use to the height, so when I ordered my PM I stayed with the 118" wb. I use it for work, play and everything in between. It carries just about anything I need to haul, its easy to park, and will make a u-turn just about anywhere and it doesn't look like a blimp parked in my yard.I only have 3 000 miles on it so far, but I like it a lot. You don't want to get to big of a van. Because if you do, more stuff will follow you home from flea markets, auctions and the like. Plus, friends and relatives will start asking you to help them move!
