Looked at it today. Couple problems that could kill the deal if the dealer doesn't get them fixed. If he does get them fixed, I'll be pulling the trigger and getting the van. It had the typical older faded paint but no dents or scracthes on it. The motor was clean and extremely accessable. Not like most vans I see. Plus it has a 350 chevy motor which has to the most common engine so parts shouldn't be an issue.
I'm new to the area so I'm still trying to get my name out there but luckily I have an immense amount of resturants and commercial building within a 10 mile radius so hopefully gas isn't the biggest issue. Besides, I think you spend more on gas having to make multiple trips to the supply house. Better to just have it on the truck.
Some of the things to look close at on those trucks are pay close attention underneath the front look at the sway bar bushings and all the frontend components, they are hard on front end stuff, then look at the brake master cylinder look to see the fluid level if low on one side it will need brakes and they are not cheap for big trucks. Last look at the rearend for leaks pay close attention to the ends by the brakes.
I run a stepvan, don't know what I'd do without it. Has a 4 cylinder cummins diesel, @ 15mpg. In your picture it looks a little short and not a dually but still decent size, still better than a van or pu IMHO. Good Luck!
