    Well silly old me. I spoke too soon when I said that the E SERIES as well as the stripped chassis were the few FORD products without a bunch of chronic problems. By far and away the E SERIES is the most popular hotel/airport shuttle bus and C motor home platform out there. Sure GM and MERCEDES BENZ has them but most are FORD. At this rate how much longer?
