Could just be the pics but the trailer looks nose-high. Good looking setup though.

Could I get some more details about your TV. Where did you source it and model and specs. Trying to talk myself into a dedicated adventure van for summers on the road and this looks to fit the bill. Looks like my dream set up and if i start early i can customize it to be just right for us.

Van is 2006 e350 I bought it last summer after we got back from a cross country trip to pickup our timber ridge.For that trip I had a 7.3 diesel in a similar van unfortunately they dont have a intercooler in the Van's so you cant make any power without exhaust temps going through the roof. So we sold that and got a v10 2005 and 2006 in my opinion are the best since you get the better trans and you dont have to deal with RCS (roll stability control)

Those E350 4x4 vans are awsome. They will pass everything but a gas station. Would be great for me with the big dogs.
