Chevy Vans - very reliable

The van I purchased replaced a 2005 3500 series W/ 308K miles on it I bought it with 200K I did next to NO MAINTENANCE ON THIS VAN ( it still runs )!

Best RV around

I bought the 2008 Chevy Express G2500 in May 2011 with the 2009 Roadtrek RV 170 Popular package added onto it. Fine performance from the 6.0L V-8. It has basic kitchen & bathroom, sleeps 3, with Onan generator, 3 water tanks, 30A RV power hook-up, water heater, 110V inverter, aux. battery, rear AC / heat pump, gasoline-powered furnace, 19" TV, DVD, small clothes wardrobe, ceiling fan, awning, plush seats, quite a bit of storage room, etc. It fits in a regular parking spot and is easy to drive. It only gets 14-15 mpg but that beats most RVs. It was expensive, but for all it does, it is worth the money. I plan on keeping it forever and making lots of camping trips across the country.

Chevy Express 2500 Cargo

Bought a used 2008 in January 2011 with 64,000 miles. Rides nice, tows nice, and is quiet for a cargo van. Is a tad bit bigger than my old 96 Dodge Ram van on the inside. My old van got 12mpg and this one gets 14mph even towing a uhaul trailer. Wish it were better but not bad for a 6.0L. I like driving this van but those split mirrors take some getting used to. Especially like the arm rest and cruise control in this Express van but have no idea how to use those 2 little cubby holes in the dash.
