A great van with lots of power


Started hesitating around 53000 miles. Changed the spark plugs (they were very easy to get to once you take the engine cover off. This is the easy-est van to work on.), Distributor cap and rotor and the problem is gone. Paint is in really bad shape (fading and peeling) but dodge was not known for great paint jobs in the 80's.

General Comments:

Performance exhaust makes a big difference in power. This van really only has 53500 miles on it. It is a class b motor-home that has a fridge, generator, stove, microwave, shower, toilet, and 3 beds. That a lot of weight to haul around and it still gets pretty good gas mileage.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
