thanks. taking out his '05 classic brought back a lot of memories of my parents '76 sovereign 31. would love to rehab an older model. the biggest problem is not having a spot/shed big enough to park it while i work on it....

btw- there's a '05 classic 31 for sale out near your neck of the woods....

yup. i know theres a 2006 diesel V8 E-350 we were interested in... a good friend pulls a 30' with their E-350 V10 gasser- tells me its very adequate, imagine the diesel would be even more better

What you have is a niche machine that soon, many folks will be looking for. If a diesel every does appear, it will fill the need, but I would guess that there will be a premium price for such a beast, making your 8.1L Burb, all that much more appealing. I nearly bought a 2004 and me pops talked me out of it. Should have gone with my gut.
i agree. plan to keep this for a while. its a beast of a TV, but not the best for running around town

We have an E-350 Chateau Super Duty van with the V-10 and 4.10 gears; it is quite the tow beast; I understand the diesel fuel filter is a nightmare to change in the van.

Yeah, I knew that.
I hear that you guys are taking a hit back there with housing prices taking a dump as a result of the auto industry slow down.
Good luck,
Dave

Judging by the latest trip, I'd say the TV & TT choices have worked out well.

And I've read that houses in Detroit are, well, low . . . .

This one goes back.. amazing how fast time flies when you're Airstreamin'

Yeah, we're still using the 'superburb'... all things considered, she's been a very good TV.
The conspiracy thickens, with FORD dropping the Econoline...

Ford has also dropped the Ranger. Something I found out to my chagrin only after recommending one as a TV for a small vintage trailer. I guess they think the Transit Connect will take the place of the Econoline...
