Astro Van

We have never owned one, but we know folks who have. Generally, they have had good luck with them. Unlike some first or second model year vehicles, they have been manufacted a lot of years and have had plenty of time to have many of the bugs worked out of them. Like anything else, however, you can always get a bad one.

The 4.3L V-6 engine is a tried and proven engine, with practical and usable torque in a good towing RPM range. As mentioned, the 3.73 axle ratio would be the better choice of towing axles.

Long time

It's been quite a while since I've posted, and I've missed you all! Ollie bought our Astro (Max) over a year ago. It took us (me, Pearl (17'SD) and Queenie) to the Casita rally last year (was it only last year?) in Colorado. So far no problems, although he did add the air shocks to level things out. The ride is much nicer now. I did have the feeling before that, as passenger, that it was a bit top heavy but the air seems to have made it better.
