Vanagon vs. Sprinter with the Beck's
"We moved from a 2WD Westy to a Synchro Westy because we wanted to do some family overlanding - exploring the snow and mud while not spending a day digging ourselves out. While we wanted to go to a more capable version of the same platform, it came with its own set of issues. The moving parts of a 4WD simply doubled that of a 2WD which meant more parts to repair and....more time and $$$. I'm glad I knew a little about repairs because with each road trip, I found myself behind or under the van at some point."
