Too much weight for a 3.9 V6, not to mention too much money. If you weren't planning on pulling a trailer it would be marginal.  I used to work in a Dodge dealership that loved to sell conversion vans and they bought a bunch of them with V6's and lack of power was ALWAYS a complaint.

So I decided in the wee hours of the night that this van is not for us.
Mainly because:

Engine size too small.    Van itself doesn't look much larger than my Safari. The heavy roof Ac/Heat doesn't do a thing for me

I'd still need to have that heavy bed/seat removed and a bed platform built with tote storage underneath

The hightop to me is it's only redeeming feature.  

I'd have to do work on the Dodge that I already need to do on the Safari. Including a solar set up.

The Safari is paid for, has 113k miles on it,  the engine is 4.3 Vortec that runs strong.  I've spent 2ys and maybe over $2,500 in cash and trade on new tires, new class III hitch, 4in lift helper springs, and other repairs and new parts.  Plus it is the last connection I have to my MOM.

Also the paint job on it is so crappy that whatever I do to it will make it look better.  I'm leaning toward a rattle can rat rod paint patch job on the boo boos here and there.  Queenie sez she's good with it Wink

Makes sense, the devil you know, and the mom connection is important too.

I painted a van with house paint and a roller. Looked surprisingly good from 10 feet. My neighbor used house paint on an old camper and said it held up for years.
I see a lot of Florida mid and high tops for significantly less on CL.
They say when you get older two things happen, one is you lose your memory and the other, I forget.

Organized people are simply too lazy to search for stuff.
