What are the dimensions of the Ford Transit Connect (2013-on)?
I'm working on my own panel van conversion, and I found that It's pretty hard to find the dimensions of just about any van. It's all over the place. That's why I've created this article. Why not help others that are doing something similar?
This page will be helpful when you're converting a van into a camper van, or when you're planning the layout for your new corporate van.'

First, more on the Connect
The Connect is a small panel van, which has a somewhat smaller wheelbase than it's big brother (the Transit). The long wheelbase however is nearly as long as the SWB Transit, so it provides plenty of room. This is the second generation Ford Transit Connect.
