Is that a good idea?
No, but it's a lot easier than growing another arm....

I am thinking about selling my 07 tacoma with only 33k and getting a van. Due to many closures here in bay area I need to travel farther and camp to do decent dirt riding. I need inexpensive(less than 6k) diesel which will be used only to haul my bikes and so I can sleep in it. I have zero personal experience with vans or diesels. Which ones are more or less reliable?

Went to look at an Astro conversion van today. It will do triple duty, camping with gf and her dog, trailering bikes to enduros, and hauling one bike and camping in for some enduros.
Body was super clean, and interior was pretty nice, but not perfect. But it had two negatives:
Front end was super sloppy. I know they have idler arm problems, but this one was worse than any I remember and the wheel had to be about 10 degrees to the left for it to go straight.
Tranny shifted fine, but there was a small leak of some kind.
Going to call back and see if I can make arrangements to get it on a lift. Depending on what it looks like I will make her an offer. Woman is selling it, it was her deceased dad's who was a fisherman and used to go fishing, and take grandkids on roadtrips.

Thanks to Skeeter and McB, and the rest of the Chain Gang for checking it out for me.
I've been thinking about what I could write on the side of it, then it hit me...


NOT A MINI-VAN



Sorry Klay.

Saw this beauty rusting away at El Burro Beach on Conception Bay, Baja California Sur. What a cool van!

Plus you could easily fit Tami's WR250R inside!

Check out that lounge lizard chair in the front seat. You pay extra for that one, IMHO.

Sliding door step vans are cool. Typically they have no pass seat, so you get to pick whatever you want from the local junkyard.

The driver's seat was the same: a big cushy pleather arm chair.

85,000 for this Sportsmobile on Craigslist Bay Area now.

Make a deal since it's been on ad for at least three months now.
