Dimensions for the Ford E150, E250, E350 (2003-2007)
The Ford E-Series is one of the most popular cargo vans in the U.S., so Ford produced a lot. There are many models and variants, all with slightly different dimensions, so I thought I'd list them here.
- The interior dimensions (length) of the Ford E-Series cargo space is 3061mm (L1), and 3566mm (L2).
- The interior width of the Econoline is 1839mm and the exterior width is 2500mm.

- The width between the wheel arches on this model is 1341mm.

More information on the Ford E-Series
This model, and these measurements, are correct for the Ford E-150, E-250, and E-350, made from 2003 - 2007. The models made from 2003 - 2007 are part of the 4th generation. The dimensions of this section of the fourth generation are a bit different from for example the newer model, so I thought I create a new page to make sure you get the right dimensions.
There are four E-Series Generations in total, and this is one is part of the last one. The Econoline is succeeded by the Ford Transit from 2014-2015 onwards.
In the fourth generation, there have been four new body updates. This one is the second latest one and has been produced from 2003 to 2007.
Being among the most popular cargo vans ever made, it had a huge market share (up to 80% in the U.S.). So there are a lot of them out there, and you can typically get your hands on one for a decent price.
Difference between E-150, E-250, E-350
The main difference between the E-150, E-25, and E350, are their towing capacity and general suspension and powertrain. In general, it is safe to say that the E-250 and E-350 are more heavy duty and a bit better-build than the E-150. On the other hand, the E-150 is the most affordable of all three and the most widely available.
For a full overview of the differences, check out my article here.
All models come in just two lengths (regular and extended) and one roof height (!). The E-150 has the lowest roof height. The E-250 / E-350 Regular both have the H2 roof height. The highest roof height is that of the E-250 / E-350 Extended.

|Widely available (U.S. & Mexico)||Old model (rust)|
|Cheap parts (in the U.S.)||High mileage|

Are E-Series good camper vans?
Since this model E-Series only comes in a low roof model, I'd say it's not ideal for a camper van, but some people are okay with it. It sure is a nice, compact van, and maintenance is a lot cheaper than for example the European vans (Sprinter - am I right).
You could opt for a conversion van model - these are widely available. However, older conversion vans do have a tendency to rot. I think this is because you don't see the rust behind all that trim, and once you do, it's too late ...
Can you stand up in a Ford E-Series model?
You can't stand in an Econoline, since it only comes in the low top. There are some high top models out there, but these have all been custom-built.
