Back in the day, when I was trying to decide which way to upgrade our tent camping, I test drove a nice truck camper. Loved the layout but couldnít stand that top-heavy sensation. Finally went with a great little trailer for a few years but got tired of the hooking-up process and always wondering if I could make it down a given road without backing up. I recently sold it to invest in upgrading my van and itís the best. You just hop in and go and itíll go anywhere. I like the low profile of the Econoline, especially in our windy Gorge, unlike the higher Sprinters/Transits.
Iíve spent all of my life skiing and snowshoeing. The rig has wound up in some bad snowstorms. Once, by the time I got back to it, I could barely find it, snow plowed into a corner and covered in two feet of fresh snow. Dug through to the door, started it up, poured some coffee, walked to the back to use the facilities, and then drove through a wall of hardened snow. I love my van.
