    cos, we are just a few short weeks away from the van nationals, which are in wisconsin this year. if you get your van and feel comfortable driving it, get your butt up there. if not, go to enterprise, hertz or one of the rental places and rent a van and come on up. you won't regret it. look around the site here and you'll find all kinds of info here.
    congrats on your purchase. we look forward to seeing more pics of your prize and hearing how you are going to fix 'er up. pv

    Yes, due to the fact these vans are essentially square boxes, and aerodynamically creates a void of low pressure just aft of the rear doors as the van moves forward through the air. The exhaust swirls around back there and if you have pop-outs in the rear of the van, it comes right in the windows

    It's also the reason you don't want your exhaust pipe(s) routed out the back, gotta turn 'em to the side. I've been noticing that some semi trailers are using a rear air deflector to stop the turbulance and interupt the vacuum that square backed vehicles create.

    If you put pop-outs in the rear doors, you cannot drive with them open or exhaust comes in the van... pop-outs in the rear doors are useful only when parked. just FYI
    right on the exhaust issue. need a breeze????? i have dream screens i'll have them at nats weave
