My wife and I never use the overhead for sleeping and it is just a place that is used for handy storage. A smaller B type would be great. On a recent trip through the Rockies that included 4 very high mountain passes, we experienced 14.4 MPG. Once we got on the flat ground the MPG increased to 16.6. Fabulous performance.
We have talked about it, but I would not expect anything real soon. The fiberglass work takes forever to get tooled. We'd like to do a streamlined B+ on an E350 chassis, maybe with the V8 for better fuel economy. And possibly on a Sprinter in the same format.
