Think about stacking in some bags of mulch or something. You can toss them in or pull them out over the bedsides.What are the advantages of a bed over a cargo area? Would one be hauling anything taller than the roofline? Quicker access without having to open a door? Cleaner passenger area?
Not trying to knock this, just curious how one would sell the Maverick over the Transit Connect, especially given the chassis designs/engine options (assuming) are so similar.
