It is too small to tow your van - just my opinion.

Man if I could fit into one of those I'd jump on it. That looks like the cleanest one I've ever seen.

I just did 3600 miles towing a Jeep behind the van and I kinda liked it. I certainly wouldn't do it every trip, but if you plan on setting up camp and wheeling a little, it's great! You certainly wouldn't know that little thing was behind you. Plan carefully at fuel stops, restaurants, etc. I do recommend a rear camera just to keep an eye on things.
That's a great match to your van and if it's in your budget I say go for it.

The only downside I've noticed to something small and older like that is that it's a great little grocery getter but if you are planning on spending all day riding around in it or getting it on the highway, they are less than comfortable. Loud, rough, and cold/hot. Just FYI, your crew may not care. Mine love the Jeep when the weather is good, but they don't really want to ride around in it when it's cold or rainy out.

That said, if I could find one of those in that kinda shape I would jump on it!

Buck, do you enjoy dragging ass at 55mph?

At first I thought it had Toyota axles swapped underneath. Then I saw the massive offset on the wheels and changed my mind.

Those are fun, versatile and can go nearly anywhere. I'd be afraid of the ride though - unless those springs are custom, be prepared for a (slow) stiff ride.

I'd totally go for a well-built Samurai. They're super-dependable. Hope it's got power steering!

Power steering? Yup its a 95 so it has power steering and fuel injected.
