The reason the Promaster is lower is because it is front wheel drive - they don't have to make room for the driveshaft under the van. Therefore, I don't know if there is any difference in the ground clearance between the Promaster, Sprinter and Transit.

However, it is my understanding (someone correct me if I'm wrong), that the Promaster doesn't come with a spare - there's no place to put it under the chassis.

The Transit has a spare under the chassis, but then Coachmen puts the fresh water tank inside one of the bench seats. The heater and converter are under the other bench seat. Also, duallys require larger wheel wells. The result is that there is NO storage under the bench seats.
