Interesting. I thought it was rated 3850. What kind of upgrades do you offer? Any way to incorporate the newer/bigger braking system?

anyone check this chinook out yet? I've started trying to talk to someone at PPL, but so far.. not great response (read lots of bad things on yelp, bbb.org, ripoffreport, etc.. unfortunately)

Don't suppose anyone knows the MPG for a chinook with a 7.3? Did they ever make one with a 6.0?

I've tried searching that yahoo forum of theirs.. and in a word.. suck.

Re: Chinooks

Probably not a lot of meat left on the bone for the salesman to care but PPL Has a very good reputation among actual buyer's. Be persistent. MPG seems to be a mystery but probably a couple of mpg less than SMBs.So look around this site. I met a gal once who got 12 mpg most the time.

I think it looks nice and is begging for a 4x4 conversion. It has been for sale for quite sometime though. A few months I think which concerns me.

Here's a 2002 with only 4k miles! No sure what engine though > http://tulsa.craigslist.org/rvs/4349658981.html

Re: Chinooks

$50K for a 2000 Chinook Baja 4x4? What does he think it is, an SMB?

Still don't like the in-your-face graphics of the Baja 4x4's, but I do like that color combo.

Re: Chinooks

I believe the one in Texas sold several months ago. Maybe it is back up for sale again.

Of interest to me is the sporty to Chinook transition. Here is a link to Tom's latest blog. Tom had "manfort" which was a sportsmobile that he converted to 4x4 years back and he was active on the forum. He made a nice bike rack modification on his Chinook which is good to see as this is my main concern as the rear door does not really work with platform bike racks.

I will likely put my van up for sale once I can actually take pictures. It is so cold in the D right now that any picture I take will likely convey the depression that comes with being below 20 degrees for multiple days! You left-coasters may pay more in taxes and have some strange laws but 80 degrees and the beach is looking good to me about now.
