Anyone use one of these vans with the side panels that open for access to the shelves inside?
Thinking about a new van and wondered how these work out?

I saw a local EC that had that setup, and I remember he had no issues. Keep in mind that the inside is still a van.

A few other guys have Sprinters, and 'dualie' box trucks.

Me, I worked out of a E350 long body Ford van. Had four in my EC business, one was a diesel.

IMHO, your choice, is your choice & you have to live with it.

Leo, got any issues with leaks yet around the pull outs? I seen one the other day that looked like one and thought it would be nice to have one, so you wouldn't have to crawl over everything to get to the shelves. Older you get, the harder to get in and out

I kinda miss the days when I had a van for work. The company I work for now uses nothing but service trucks with a Harbor or Royal bed. I will vouch that the 2012 GMC 2500HD is a nice truck smile

I have a ford 1 ton 4x4 van. It can be loaded down. Only complaint is the steering is stiff so the front wheels dont free wheel back straight so i have to manually straighten the wheels

Sounds like an alignment problem. On a Ford E/F body, they are bending stuff.
