My friends and I (4 of us total) are going on a 20 day, 4000mile road trip this summer through the US leaving from NY. We are almost convinced that a “High-Top” conversion van is the best vehicle to do the job.
Renting one would cost over $3000 so I prefer to buy one and sell it afterwards (unless someone can suggest a more cost effective rental option).
There are various models from Chevy, Ford, and Dodge. Most are built on Truck chassis and engine/transmission packages so any truck knowledge probably applies here.
Any makes/models I should stay away from?
The one I am looking at now is a 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 for $3000. Body has around 200k with 60k on a rebuilt engine and transmission. Anyone have experience with this model?
Any input would be appreciated.
