Van Chassis Alignment?

Hi folks,
I'm gearing up to take my new shortie cross-country for work and a more intensive build out (friends with land in the woods!).

Curious if there are any chain shops y'all have found that will work on van front busses? I have a Chevy 3500 and it's no more than 20 odd feet.

It's not too far out of alignment, but I'd like to keep my tires even on the 3000 mile drive.

Let me know if you've found anything! Calling around and it seems like a lot of folks are unsure if it's a possibility, but can't give me a straight yes or no outright.

sorry hit the post button to soon.
i also have a 04 3500 with collins/mid bus body.
my local pop and son tire shops say there alignment machine wont fit but it will and they say there lift wont pick it up? they just dont want to mess with it
but my son is a ford mechanic and there equipment had no issues doing the alignment on mine.
it might cost a little more at a dealership but there you will get the chevy nationwide warranty if you are hitting the road farely soon.

Local Meineke shop did exhaust work on mine. They also have chassis alignment capabilities, but I didn't ask them if they could do my bus...
