I'm the guy who got better service out of a Renault Sportwagon than I did a Buick. My daily driver bikes have been Guzzi's, Urals and a Royal Enfield for many years now.
That Renault Sportwagon was a great thing. Mine had about 250k miles when it gave up.
I loved my '98 Chevy Express High Top Jayco Conversion until about 3 years ago, but nothing lasts forever...

I drove a 2003 ram 2500 quad cab with 8' bed and when I took the family we have a 2005 aerolite cub 23' hybrid travel trailer. we still have the trailer and tow it with the van. I miss my truck and 4wheel drive tho I got nervous a few times this winter with the van but never got stuck "YET". my favorite part of the truck was those side boxes on the cap I could get so much stuff in those and with the ease of access they were awesome. I would never own a truck and not have a cap with the side boxes built in. under the bed I had a slide out tray with all my camping gear that also gave me really easy access to everything when it was slid out.


With that said I am enjoying the 20mpg+ on the highway with the van and being able to keep all my stuff in it at all times and just going for a weekend trip on a whim is just great.

The Renault was basically a Fuego, but with a Volvo straight six up front! Had to disassemble the front end to change belts. Very fun family wagon to drive! My wife loved all the power gadgets.
