Here is the intro paragraphs. . .
=============
The humble cargo van is having its moment.
Sales of vans used to transport packages and other internet-ordered items are booming, driven by a continued surge in online shopping and the popularity of free delivery services, auto executives and analysts say.

Thanks, does look like the delivery business is a boom to the van market right now. How much it impacts what the conversion people can get I don't know. I did hear there were some delivery problems for one conversion company getting Sprinters last year because of the Amazon order.
