I have had vans since the early 1970s. I drive then until something major kills them. 2 Fords and 1 Dodge. All of them had close to 300K on the odometer before they died. Right now I have a 94 Ford E150 club wagon, 5.8, with 265K on it and it runs perfectly and still has shiny paint. All my van had a simple modded interior for camping; Bed, ice box, second battery (AGM), and an inverter. It also has a packasport cargo box on the roof. I just signed on here because vans come with their unique issue and I figure other van folk have dealt with them and we can share solutions.
