  1. We’ve got a ModVan and love it, two of us. It’s a 4X2, 300 watt solar panel, large battery, EcoBoost engine, composting toilet. Drives like a dream. You caught the functionality of the vehicle. Sleep up top on 5 inches of foam with the fresh air and the views.. . This year: 13,000 miles, cross-country and back (to SoCal), Pacific NW and back, NM & rtn, 46 great campsites, no generator, no plug-in, off the grid. The big guys can have their parking lot with FHU down by the entrance, we’re out back at the no-frills scenic small-pad tent sites. All this with great performance up hill and down at 17+ mpg and park almost anywhere, what’s not to like!

  2. 17 mpg. really, I got the power stroke diesel and only get 17.7 when I keep a light foot. I was told I could get 20 mpg. Is anyone getting more on a diesel? The Eco Boost motor however did cost extra, like the Power stroke?
