Van-trailer combo idea
I am considering getting a travel trailer and I would need to get a new vehicle to haul it, since our SUV has a tow limit of 3500, which rules out all but the smallest trailers, and that won't serve our needs.
Then I came up with the idea of buying a Chevy 1500/3500 extended van. The interior can be out fitted like a camper for short trips of days to weeks. Boondocking would be less of a hassle with just the van, since it could be parked in a standard parking space. So you don't have the issues with towns that ban overnighters at Walmart, etc.
Plus, these vans have a V8, so they probably have the towing capacity equal to a large pickup. So we could also tow a 14-20' travel trailer, but now we would have the additional space in the van for storage. We could keep the trailer in a more permanent RV space on a monthly or seasonal rental, and go on trips elsewhere in the van. This provides a lot of versatility.
