I got this van for long trips; I live in Florida and travel to where I lived before in Michigan. It has a lot of power, it was used to move my brother to Florida, pulling a loaded 5x8 enclosed trailer several times.
Heavy duty suspension, powerful 7.5 ltr. motor.
My big complaint about the van is on the two side doors and the two back doors the cables broke at different times, making the doors impossible to open until fixed. I contacted the ford motor co. About this problem but they told me the van was too old.
