Small camper- big tow power
I am buying my e350 short bus primarily as a tractor, to pull a large enclosed trailer to the race track. Sometimes the track is hundreds of miles away. I selected it because of the 7.3 diesel, heavy frame, suspension and dual wheels. The bus was much cheaper that a similar pickup. My Suburban 1500 was not heavy duty enough for the task, and my new Silverado has to last me, so I want to use that for lighter work. I intend to strip out the seats, but I do not have plans to make it a home, only a well ventelated crash pad, and a place to keep our dogs out of the way, if we decided to bring them along. I may leave the interior as is, sans benches. I will want to (cheaply) paint it to avoid problems in various states which do not like it to remain school bus yellow. If anyone has experience with a brush and rustolium, please give me a lesson. Since we use this in the heat of summer, the roof must be white or silver, but beyond that, I am looking for ideas. Graffics might include something representing our real estate management company, Gold Star REO.
