I shoulda been investing in hightop conversion vans 10 years ago.
when out of military 1st time I had the old family conversion van, it wasn't a hightop. that sucked being 6'3". I spent about 6 mos road tripping see
all my buds that got out.. The whole time I thought, man if this thing only had the taller roof..
Now, good luck finding one decent for less than 20,000.
AND if you want to hunt/fish/camp away from people.. then this type rig is 1,000,000 times better. at least 1 million..lol
the great thing about this choice is the truck you get can make this perfect. depending on your budget there are great options.
shoestring -- you can find an old used camper for less than $2,000, and a gas powered gm/ford/dodge 70-90's truck for the same in pretty great shape,
and far better than a van to work on.
miser -- 90's era diesel truck - 5.9 Dodge (look out for 53 blocks and KDP) or 7.3 Ford... Gm diesels were trash compared to Cummins and I/H. boat
anchors. these trucks last forever. and if single you can get a regular cab for a song if you look around. The ex/cab will be about 2k more. For a
crewcab, gotta choose Ford. the obs fords are good trucks too.
If you have some coin, go for the diesel! won't regret that. 500,000 miles, better mpg, less engine parts vs a small block gas-200,000 miles if
