I bought my Metris window van a couple months ago. I took out the seats and built a bed frame out of pine and oak. I bought a Latex Mattress from Sleep EZ in Arizona and put it in. My wife and I left Ohio on the day after labor day and went on a road trip around the southwest. Over the next two and a half weeks we rolled up almost 6000 miles. We slept in the van and stayed in out of the way vintage motels all over AZ, NM and CO. The Metris was great fun to drive and, start to finish, averaged 25.9 MPG. On mountain roads the handling was great!!!! When we were young, (40 years ago), we did the same type of trips many times with a VW Beatle, camping everywhere. I love the Metris and will keep it forever.
