He died since and we probably could have bought the van from the estate very reasonably but that just did not happen. Anyway, I don't recall the driving experience as being very daunting, which is probably why I was not scared away from the B350 we bought, but both are vastly huge-er than our current Westy and may take some getting used to. It was also my first ever $75+ fillup.
In addition, I never had the chance to explore the SMB's potential because he had the back end of it absolutely crammed with crap, evidently using his van as closet space, or an attic, or a basement, or some combination of all of those. Barely room in back for our own luggage. Too bad.
