Looking for the perfect VAN
« on: January 06, 2017, 04:22:53 PM »
Hello all, just gonna poke around a little and look for info on having a Conversion Van, I have a 2012 Ram truck right now and it is my everyday ride! Looking either to keep it or trade it in for a Van that i can Tow with and sleep and haul a sailboat with and  my Fatbikes I do moutain bike 4 times a week! I hang at a lake all summer long it would be nice to crash at the lake if it starts to rain!  I was wanting to find something that got more than 11mpg too!

That's a pretty tall order...  With the exception of the mpg, a mini bus with a rear door sounds like it might be a good solution.  I think I'd want my bike(s) inside with me without cramping my camping arrangement.  That might be tough in a van.  I certainly don't have room for one in my camper van and it is an extended body maxi-van.

A garage model class C might be another consideration.  Older, low mileage ones in excellent condition can sometimes be found pretty cheap, and no conversion necessary, but ready to roll and enjoy.
