I had a Grand Caravan from 2010-2014 and then bought a Ram Ecodiesel and now am trying a van again to see if I really need or want the truck. Time wil tell. The van is a lot easier for the dog to get into. It takes up much less garage space and can do a good job hauling most of what I need to haul. It is nice that it still fits 4x8 sheet goods fully covered in sloppy weather. Main drawback is towing boats that are wide. Also at the load limit it can be challenging to pull out of launch ramp with the boat on if it is a wet slippery ramp like many are.
I just finished a 3500 mile road trip with the van and the other drawback is that they are a bit noisy and boomy inside on rough pavement. The truck is much quieter with its body on frame construction and the wheels outside of the passenger compartment. Anyhow with 6000+ miles I am very happy with my PAcifica. I need one more fillup of gas to calculate my overall mileage.
