    Lots of rear axle failures on Toyota chassis RVs of that era, not specific to any brand. Some people retrofitted them with 8-lug GM axles.

    Other entities that use and might sell off a 4x4 conversion are municipalities, utility operators, FedEx, transit companies. Iíve seen Quigleys being used by all of them around here.

    Just dug our Quigley Transit our yesterday after 2 months:

    Wait...is that some type of humble brag that you haven't used your campervan in 2 months? I'm so confused by this van stuff, I thought they were for driving around and sleeping in?

    That's the shittiest fucking ski rv I've ever seen. You are going to need something stronger than the case of beer to survive sleeping there in the open bed.

    Just wrap a blue tarp over the top of the ski racks, and done!

    Tuck a Heater buddy there inside the tarp with you and you're good to go.

    So you haven't worked in two months and you're bragging about it in the RV thread? You been off camping in your other van? You should AirBnB that thing. I'm good for $25/night.

    jfc foggy... it's not my van, i don't/wont own a van and def not bragging. I manage the vehicle as part of my role at the school I work at. We use it to take kids into the outdoors. I've posted about the van before here because it's a cool 4wd eco-boost transit that would be sweet if someone was a vanlife person. What brings you here?

    Are you new here? If you are looking for intelligent adult discourse you are in the wrong place. That said, I can't believe the school transports kids in a cargo van. Are you sure the the school board doesn't lend it to the coyotes to pick up the next load of house cleaners and nannies for Chet and Buffy up in the RFV? If it is for the kids, mad props...a few bean bags and some Capris Suns...that's old school. I'm sure they can't wait for the outdoors to open again so they can go on another trip.

    Why am I here, I like RVs, vans and the adventures that skiers take in them.

    Ski RV's, who's sleeping in parking lots?

    4x4, diesel, high roof.
    Any factory domestic 4x4/awd vans i need to know about? I did a quick look for a chevy express awd, not many out there. Occasional Fords, but are they all aftermarket 4x4? Not much else.
    Aside from a 4x4 short bus, which would suck for fuel economy, any ideas?

    Iím going the opposite direction. A truck with a slide in camper is basically two vehicles in one. A van thatís set up for camping (I have a converted Astro) is a camping rig. Plus vans suck to work on. Everything is tucked in tight. For $900 Iíd buy that Toyota rv is it was local

    wasnt really a parking lot rig, i replied with a quote to a couple of mags comparing bed cross-bar setups with ski racks and boxes on them, not sleeping rigs.

    For sure. Iíve been on the camper program for a while, and after looking at crazy overpriced van options for a few days itís more likely Iíll stick to trucks.

    However, I did just turn up a 3/4 ton gmc savana with a Quigley 4x4 for reasonable price. Not local though...
    Furthermore, surprising to see awd Express vans getting 17-18 mpg, highway. Not bad.

    Somebody needs to take that $900 Sunrader, rip out the old chassis and mount it on a modern truck chassis.
