Congrats on the new rig and plans to hit a bunch of the IKON pass resorts!!
My wife and I did the Mountain Collective Pass touring for the last three seasons. 6weeks, almost 7 weeks, and 5 weeks respectively. All but 4 to 6 nights we were sleeping in our van. Lots to consider in terms of van equipping, set-up, and logistics to make it enjoyable.
Are you planning on camping in the van for your tour? Many of the places have no campgrounds open in the winter. Eating in or out most of the time? Going east or just hitting the IKON resorts west of the Mississippi?
Heating and ventilation, storage for food, gear, wet gear, how to occupy time at night, protecting your water supply and plumbing from freezing, battery capacity in cold temps, engine/systems reliability, cleaning the interior and exterior regularly, prepping the frame now, if it is super clean, because the salt and chems used in various states is brutal, etc.
PM your ph# to me if you want to discuss. It is a great way to ski/ride and a wonderful experience to have with your sons. Just need to set up for success!
