I just drove from Seattle to San Diego and back 3k miles . I-5 corridor the whole way. The entire trip didn't see a single PM on the rd. Two on a lot in CA.... Wonder how many units they actually have out there. I expected to see more on the rd....

Just made a trip from Kansas to southeast Georgia and back. Saw 2 PM's, both with commercial markings, and one PM Winnebago RV. Surprised me we saw that many

Out here in a rural area of Western New York the only trucks I see are pickup trucks. I get lots of stares and guys wanting to talk about it in parking lots. With the high roof sure is easy to find in a parking lot! But the 159 wb takes up more than one spot so I have to park farther out (which I don't mind, wouldn't want someone dinging my new toy!)

I bought the first 118 wb low roof in our town a couple weeks ago. Read somewhere there were only 665 low roofs shipped so far. The dealer has three high roofs on the lot, but hasn't sold any.

Our dealership has 13 promasters . I have not seen them sell one this year. They are not moving. I have my eye on one of them though (silver 2500 with two sliders with windows).

I went to Inlad in Menominee Falls yesterday to pick up a legend mat for my PM. I only saw 1 in 200miles on I43. The guy there said they were upfitting 5 per week for the Milwaukee market. He had a PM 3500 in the shop putting some legend upfits in it. I have seen some from truck country in Southern Wi. area. Not sure but I think they are from the Madison area. Those sprinter guys sure are lookin hard when I drive by. I think I saw 20 or more sprinters in the same stretch of road.

I drive 4-5K per month. I find the ride to be comfortable but would wish there was more room to strech out my legs.

I normally will see about one other Promaster on the road. Will see about 6-8 Sprinters.

My company is an international company. We have been using 3 different vehicles in the Americas.
Jeep Patriot
Dodge Grand Caravan
Ford Econoline

As of a few months ago they let us all know they were giving us the choice to move into the PM 1500

With the amount of driving and boxes that I have to deal with on a daily basis, I jumped at the thought of getting the PM. I haven't received my new vehicle yet but I can't wait.

I'm currently in the minivan and people tend to "not see me" and try to run me off the road daily. I'm hoping the bigger vehicle will make that happen less :)

I work in the seacoast section of ME, NH, and MA So I deal with different traffic levels constantly. I drive around 2-300 miles daily. I will update how well the vehicle handles in city, country, and semi mountain conditions.
