    Larger Sprinters?

    I had a 08 Sprinter extended. I did local delivery. I was paid by the stop. I got 4 pallets in it if I turn two of them on narrow side. it can be done. I would not want to drive cross country with the van that full, but often went couple to 300 miles. I was empty coming back.

    sprinter OTR newb question

    That is a good explanation LBD, i am a delivery guy nowadays. I have done it both ways. I like my out and back. The OTR is fine too and it paid me about 10% more. I was a bit more rested and had some time to sight see. As out and back, there is some urgency to return home to be back on call.
