I totally agree with your description of the Pro. We love the snug, unpretentious look of the van and the fact that it has a surprisingly low profile for a high-top. And it's the ideal vehicle for a camper van conversion because of the FWD. No wonder we now have more than 6 Promaster up-fitters in North America and that 70% of all van conversion in Europe are built on the Ducato.I bought my PM BECAUSE of a review. It didn't matter whether the guy liked it or not (he did), I saw what I had been waiting for: less expensive than Sprinter, high roof not TOO high, yet I can stand in it due to FWD, high perch in the driver's seat so I can see over traffic (used to that) and... I liked the looks (of the high roof version)! He also hinted at decent gas mileage and that was important to me too after 8-9 mpg pulling a trailer with a F150. So far I love this van and I'm tellin' everybody!
