Hi JD,JD GUMBEE said:There's a reason trucks have a rear differential.
FWD is nice when the majority of weight is over the front wheels but not when you try putting heavy weight in the rear...making the front wheels "pull" the load instead of "push" the load. When your front wheels spin, you cannot steer the vehicle.
Thanks again once more for your suggestions. I'll think about the GM vans and see what is available. The Nissan it seems they do not produce it in a long/extended body and it means we would would need to rethink entirely our layout and keep some things out that we deem important. I guess it's just another of those situations in which we got to weigh pros and cons and set priorities. It doesn't seem like the perfect van is out there for our situation.JD GUMBEE said:If you are looking for 250,000 miles of as trouble free service as possible, there are two vans that clearly do this best.
GM vans and Nissan vans.
