Those things are beasts. That's a pretty reliable motor if it was maintained.

Nice One! That will haul a Ton. You should go get DPs old Rack off his old Van. His old Ford is dead in Hinesburg with that huge rack still on the roof. Its right off RT116 on North Road sout of Town. Left side of the road going North. That Rack is Killer and DP would get a chuckle out of it sitting on your van.

that is a great idea. but i am not sure i am going to keep this van. i think it is a bit over kill and it needs a few things. i got it for 2100. i might be able to make a quick 1000-1500 on it. books for 5600.

I drove that van, or one just like it. Its big and heavy. 12-13mpg and all you can do is camp in it. They are nice but 22K for a 1999. Its a 3/4 ton Dodge van with a septic system. Its all built in with a toilet in the shower.  Buy a van like mine for cheap and save the rest of the money for gas and repairs. We just spent 8 nights in our van. Cheap cheap fun!

I know the foot print. I like that guys ad, hot water tank leaks, 8 mpg. Way to talk it up.

I am liking the long Dodge van in a cargo configuration. The long one you often see as a 15 passenger van. Without all the junk inside its a big space.

Like this one but with another 3 feet on the back


You see them mostly as passenger vans. They run forever, easy to fix and nothing inside with plumbing makes them simple. A bed, a kitchen in a box, an awning and a nice cooler is all you need. They make these little porta potties that use bags and double as a stool. That is all I need.

My wife on the other hand seems to want 1000 pounds of built ins

Here we go

Great van......As long as you don't live down by the river.

Glad to see you're going to put DPs' rack to use.

That is a beast! You could fit a moose in the back of that thing.

Good one Tom, and knowing Erik there's a good chance a moose will find it's way into his van. He's a hell of a hunter.

You don't hunt a moose. You just walk up to it and shoot it.

Moose need to be thined out for the good of all things wild. You should go shoot one Bob.....you're always looking for antlers.

Come on Joe Moose are thinned for reducing car accidents. All things wild would like a few more moose to hunt. I once followed a coyote track into a moose carcass.  IT was like a star, 100 tracks leading to the meat. I still have those antlers.  We live in the middle of nowhere and I should be bothered by wild life. All I have are chipmunks and red squirrels. A ton of deer mice and a flock of Ravens. We see some turkeys and a bear once in a while not what you would expect given our location.

I found the cat on the roof of the garage yesterday morning. Something chased him up there. He spends his nights out hunting so a Fisher probably stopped in.

Van has begun the transformation from church wagon to massive junk hauler. Tomorrow the roof rack gets installed and finish gutting interior. Looking for a cargo divider, aluminum rims and set of LT245-75-R16 highway type tires.
