I've owned a few vw vans over the years and really like them. But the tow rating isn't going to be enough for me. Nor is it awd or 4wd. And I don't think I could ever bring myself to buy a vw with a automatic transmission. Whatever I buy will be fullsize. A 3/4 ton 4x4 van would be great but they are expensive and rare. If I could get a good buy on one that would most likely be the winner.
