One of my good buddies/camping friend owns a wood flooring sanding and installation company. They have a Ford E350 V10 and a Chev 3500 6.0l, both of which are loaded with sanding and stain equipment, and both vans tow his enclosed trailer for install jobs. Granted the trailer is only 18-20' and I think only has a 10,000lb GVW, but both of the vans have close to 150,000 miles with limited problems that I know of.

Well we are to pick up our NTU van tomorrow, a 2012 Chevy Express 3500 LT extended with 9k miles. It will take awhile to get used to the "church buses" longer wheelbase but I would imagine it will make towing more pleasurable from a handling standpoint. I'm sure over 3k of cargo capacity won't hurt either. I am a little nervous about the transition from the Toyota's wonderful 5.7 to the Chevy's 6.0. I know from the trucks at work that the 6.0 is a reliable, tough motor but it is a little down on power from the Toyota and I am eager to see how it does. Thanks to everyone for your advice and info on my TV journey!
