I also had Ford during my business live and have tried the lemon diesels from GM in the late 70's which closed that door in a hurry. I had E vans from Ford and also the Aerostar's which I still have 3 of them in good shape. But when working on those Aerostar you wonder if their is any brain left in that company. So last September Ford did not want to budge on the price......and now we love this Dodge Ram with the 5.7 Hemi. It is funny how Ford and Chrysler went for their Vans to Europe. As it is with everything you have to try out and experience for yourself. We all have our taste and opinion. Camping and meeting new friends is a great world to be in.

I thought while buying our Greyhawk that much of what gets done or delivered everyday happens with an E450.

2008 Dodge Ram 2500 with 5.7 Hemi. Am very happy with it. As far as cost, I live in GM country so I got a great deal on a great pickup.

We haul with a 1997 F250 tow package. Installed a prodigy brake controller. Replaced wheels, brakes, shocks, ball joints. Runs great.

For me it's a VW Touareg TDI and it tows 7,700 lbs and my hibrid is 4,800 + stuff so I'll say around 5,500 lbs. handles it like a champ. I get 23 on the flats and 19 on the big hills. Without the trailer I get over 33 at 65 mph. The dog in the pic is not the Tunce but "Axel my boy" who was my special dog.
