OK, fellows:  educate me...  I stumbled across an article buried deep on my homepage this morning, now can't find it -- but found this one on USA today regarding Ford's putting the Econoline van into the archives:  On edit, here is the original article I found:

So, does this mean that our E350's & E450's are about to become dinosaurs now or in the near future -- and the European Transit (sprinter like for sure!) will now be the basis for future PC's and other B+/C's by all manufacturers in the non-Sprinter vehicles?  I found this photo of a European motorhome built on it  They talk about 25% better fuel economy, but also about it being lighter and less powerful than the E-series.  

Did y'all already know all this and what do you think this will mean as far as this European version replacing the E-series?  Any idea if it is going to be only diesel or also gas?   shrug

Marilyn, maybe this link will give you a little more information.  It looks like the cutaway van will continue to be available for a few years at least.
