My googlefu has failed me. Where can I find the interior dimensions for the various PM models? I've found height and volume but no length and width.

One small thing that I discovered is that "load floor length" is from the step in the floor in the front (at the back of the seats) all the way to the back with the doors open. If you actually want to be able to shut the back doors, take about 4 inches off (the thickness of the back doors). Typical marketing ... advertise the most optimistic possible number.

Also, the 21" step in height is higher in reality, at least for the back doors. It's still lower than a conventional rear-drive van (reason for me buying) but it is likely only that low if the van is loaded to max weight rating to compress the suspension.

I measured my 159" WB Extended's cargo floor from the step below the seats to the closed back door and it was exactly 160".

I read this on the weband became somewhat interested in the Ram C/V as a considerably cheaper alternative to PM.
HOLDS OVERSIZED CARGO
With Best-in-Class cargo width and length+ as well as Best-in-Class cargo capacity+, the 2014 Ram C/V Tradesman® lets you stack 4 x 8 sheets of plywood or sheetrock flat.
Checked it out in person and you could maybe get one sheet under the front seat rails. The rest would stick out the back at least 6 - 18 inches depending on where you adjust the seats and how high you stack. Perhaps if it had a split tailgate/hatch or other rear door arrangement the claim would be more credible. But with no official way to secure the hatch while carrying 4x8 sheets, it seems like a claim with potential legal ramifications to me.

so maybe their claim of being able to stack 4.8 sheets of plywood are with the front seats like all the way forward.

did you test with 4x8 sheets? or you just measured it and found that it would stick out.

I never drove it since it was clear you'd have to leave the liftgate partially open and bungeed. I put the seat where I'd normally have it at 5' 7" tall and measured. It wouldn't work even the seat all the way forward. The rear of the frame still hangs over the base by a few inches.

Floor cover and wall liner

I just recieved my HD grip floor from legend fleet solutions. Amazing floor. Does anyone know where I could find specs for wall panels? Id like to make my own out of luan.

Can someone who owns one tell me the width between the outside skins where the rear windo would be? I'm wondering if I could build a platform bed, with minimal insulation, that goes crosswise. I'm 72" tall, so I'd probably need at least 76 to be reasonably comfortable.

Thanks!

Might be old news.. did this to see if the Overland sprinters bed rails would work.
Hello Jesse here is what I found with my 2017 PM 159 high roof.
These are the bare steel walls.
At 40 inches the distance between panels 78 3/4-

The distance between the vertical ribs at that same height is 75 3/4

The distance between the horizontal steel pieces is 73 3/4-see below.

Does anyone have the actual measured width off the floor? I've measured the width between the center ribs as 73.5" for a 2018 that I won't see for months yet but forgot to measure the floor width and don't have easy access to that vehicle. I've read people making their floor 72" wide but I can't imagine the floor being less wide than them.

Can you clarify where you’re looking for this measurement?

Basically the full width of the flat part of the floor on either side of the wheel wells. The brochure mentions 75.6" but that doesn't ring true to me.

Yeah, at floor level I’m not sure where they’d get 75.6. I just measured my floor and it’s 73.5 to 74” just behind and in front of the wheel wells. Note that the floor narrows just in front of the wheel well, see photo below. (Ignore the stray toes :D)

That's awesome info. Thanks so much for that! I had assumed it to be the same as the centre rib width in my CAD file.
Which year and model is yours?

Also, do you know the depth of space behind the top rib measured from the front lip? I think it'll be my wiring tray but it'll compete with insulation for space.
