It looks to be very nice and in my opinion GTRV build quality is far better than SMB in many ways (I own both). If you could live with what is often considered an under powered motor, this one might be worth looking at. The 4.6 will certainly get better mileage, but you will spend more time in lower gears, holding up traffic on the hills. It also may be an E150, which is a bit light duty if you plan to load it up with gear.

BTW, quite a few of us here have moved from a VW Westy (I had an 88 full Westy) to a SMB Ford. I loved my VW, but have never regretted getting the Ford. So much cheaper and easier to have work done on it, and a lot more room.

Precisely what I needed to hear today. I love my westy-but-I love not putting a beautiful 13yo in danger, too, when something occurs somewhere sketchy.

I'm super super super interested, but cannot get him to respond (and I'm not really sure as a newbie if my private message really went thru to him or not). All of your help is significant to me. Very very grateful.
