I know this is a maybe a long shot after looking through several pages of threads, but on the theory that you never know until you ask I am asking. Since I am going to be a fulltime RVer with my Oliver (picking it up in early to mid October), I have been focusing my tow vehicle search on vans. I wanted something that would offer a combination of good storage and easy access. I'm narrowed down to the Chevy Express, GMC Savana and the Ford Transit. Does anyone have any experience with any of these? Would love to hear from you even if you didn't use the van to tow an Oliver.
My wife and I are conducting Oliver research and will lay eyes on our first OLE II this coming Friday. Trying to answer as many questions as possible before the upcoming visit, and one question on the list is: Can we use our existing 2007 Chevy Express AWD Van? What are your thoughts on keeping this vehicle as a starting point for a tow vehicle? Here is the data on our van: 2007 Chevy Express H1500 AWD Passenger Van "5300" V8 Engine The manual lists 3.42 and 3.73 Axle ratios, but does not specify which ration for my particular vehicle. Maximum Trailer Weight is 6,100
Those of you with the big diesel trucks, please post your fuel economy figures and a brief description (towing speed, elevation, terrain). I have a 2006 Ram 3500 5.9 Cummins and am wondering what I would see towing an Elite II. I regularly get 18-20 mpg running empty on the freeway, and up to 22 on 60 mph flat back roads.... I am hoping for 16 pulling the trailer. Thanks, John Davies Spokane WA
