Seems to be a few people out there using these cargo type vans to pull their TT.
I am seriously considering going this route. The added space for my large pets and gear, as well as the added security makes it very appealing.
There are a few companies in town selling VERY clean and low mileage corporate fleet lease returns at good price points.
However,they ALL seem to be the 2500 as opposed to the 3500. I am wondering if the 2500 will be adequate for me, and what the trade-offs will be with this type of vehicle.
The specific vans I am considering have 6.0L V-8 OHV SMPI 16 valve engines. Rear-wheel drive - 3.73 axle ratio. 335 horsepower @ 4400 rpm, and 360 lb.-ft. of torque @ 4000 rpm. They do come standard with a a Tow/Haul mode. I do not believethey have a tow package, so may need to upgrade transmission cooler.
FYI - I will be pulling a 66 Tradewinds, at 5500lbs fully loaded. I wll be using a weight distribution hitch.
Any and all opinions are welcome!
