Dimensions for the Ford E150, E250 and E350 (2008-2015)
When looking for the interior dimensions of the Ford E-Series, it's all over the place. I needed these dimensions for my own camper van conversion, so I thought I'd share them here.

More information on the Ford E-Series
This model, and these measurements, are correct for the Ford E150, E250, and E350. These models only have small differences in dimensions, and mainly have different springs, brakes, and power trains, increasing their towing capacity.
The Ford E-Series has been produced since 1961, with four generations in total:
In the fourth generation, there have been four new body updates. This one is the latest and has been produced from 2008 onwards.
It's one of the most popular commercial cargo van every produced, holding a very large market share (up to 80% in the U.S.) up until the Ford Transit took it over in 2015.
Difference between E-150, E-250, E-350
At first, I thought that the E-Series' nameplates (E-150, E-250, E-350) indicated the different body length options. That's not true. The 150 series is the regular model, and the 250 and 350 are Super Duty models. That means they have better springs, better breaks, and better towing capacity.
For a full overview of the differences, check out my article here.
The main difference between the three is their towing capacity, just like with the F-Series.
All models come in just two lengths (regular and extended) and one roof height (!). They are all built on the same chassis, so you only get one wheelbase length to choose from. Not a lot of range to choose from dimension-wise. But as a conversion-style van, this van could work very well.
Pros and cons of the E-Series:
|Compact full-size van||Just two body lengths|
|Widely available (U.S. & Mexico)||No longer made|
|Cheap parts (in the U.S.)||High mileage|
|Affordable||No high top models|
|Lot's of kits and conversion options||Just one wheelbase length|

Are E-Series good camper vans?
The Econoline could be a good camper van for people that don't need to stand up in their van. However, it's important to note that these vans only come in a low-roof model, and there aren't a lot of high tops out there. There are some custom high-top models, like this camper van.
There are plenty of E-Series Conversion van models out there, like the one above. They are pretty popular and there are all kinds of models out there. The conversion vans have modular camper van interiors, making them ready to go out on the road immediately.
Can you stand up in a Ford E-Series model?
No, you can't. There are only low top models available. If you're lucky enough to find a high top model, it was built by a custom shop, or someone's DIY project, as Ford didn't built them. Some conversion vans or old ambulances have high tops, but again, you have to get lucky.

How wide is a Ford Econoline?
The interior width of the Ford Econoline is 73.6" (or 1870mm) at the beltline. The exterior body width of the Ford Econoline is 79.4" (or 2017mm) excluding mirrors, and 106" (or 2692mm) including mirrors. These dimensions were used from 2008 - 2015. The dimensions for other generations and body models vary somewhat.
What year did Ford stop making the Econoline van?
Ford stopped producing the passenger and cargo van models of the Econoline Series in 2014. Since 2015, Ford only provides stripped chassis and cutaway cab models of the E-Series. The successor of the E150, E250, and E350 is the Ford Transit.
Why did Ford stop making the E Series?
Ford stopped producing the E-Series because of a variety of reasons. The demand for smaller vans declined, while the demand for larger vans increased. Due to higher gas prices, consumers expected better fuel economy. At the same time competition from imported (European) vans, which were larger and more fuel-efficient, increased.
Did Ford make a 4x4 Econoline?
Ford has never produced a 4x4 Econoline. There are, however, 4x4 models available. Several conversion companies offer to fit the Econoline with a 4x4 drivetrain. For example, Quigley, Agile Offroad, or DIY kits like Ujointoffroad. These companies replace the suspension and drivetrain and modify parts like the gas tank to create the clearance needed.
