    A buddy left this at my house, I don’t know what he wants for it but I know he knows I’d love it. And I do, It’s old but soooo cool. How often do ya see a 1 ton dually Van-up? Man that thing would make a great tow vehicle, Especially if it’s 4 wheel drive. I may not be able to refuse it LOL.

    is that customized for pulling a fifth wheel? Is there seats in the second row or ????

    I’d say the van is customized for pulling a fifth wheel and/or whatever type of trailer, I’m sure it was made by an aftermarket company that would buy a van on a 1 ton dually frame and cut the body off behind the front seats (or ordered it that way) and added their own fiberglass shell behind it. She said she saw a table in the back but couldn’t tell if it has captain chairs or a bench seat, I would bet on captain chairs since it’s made from a van body/cab but who knows. A bed back there would be cool but since it’s made to pull a 5th’r I guess ya wouldn’t really need it

    I could think of a dozen uses for a unit like that.

    BE the change you want to see.

    I have never seen a van like that before, it is pretty interesting. It would be great for towing and it just looks cool.

    I’m sure there are a few Gearheads on here that would tow with that custom.

    Just make sure you fix/replace those paisley seat covers, okay? 🙂

    edit: I just looked again, it isn’t paisley, looks more like motorcycles. My comment stands. 😀

    Leave it the way it is ….. call it “retro” and double the price!

    Bet it sucks the fuel pretty fast. Any clues to what it weighs?

    Sweet van! It could really use some fuzzy dice hanging from the rear-view mirror though…

    OK that thing could be a really cool toy hauler with a fresh coat of paint. Is the bed big enough for your RZR to fit on Dabbs?

    I’ve never seen one of those before.
    It looks like a mini semi.

    I think they used to used to sell those in a cab and chassis to fleet customers for custom big box van bodies. Looks like a van customizer outfit bought some to make a unique tow vehicle.
