There is a van section here too, post up your mods in there you do for mileage and swap out your shocks.
The van is used for piping work, service and installation of steam boiler....so lots of weight all the time. WE are just under 7500 miles right now. And thank you for pointing out the van forum. I'll repost this initial post over there.

2018 Savana Cargo Van with 2.8 Duramax Diesel

I am very happy with mine. Have made several trips between Quebec and Florida both with a loaded van and also towing a heavy trailer.
Admittedly it is not the old Big Duramax but the additional gears in the transmission do a good job of compensating for the reduced engine size.

2017 Chev Express w/ baby Dmax

Thought I'd liven this post up. I bought a new 2017 Chev Express 2500 cargo van short wheel base (or as I call them, the "stumpy") in July 2018. It has the 2.8L Dmax. I put 405 miles hwy service on mine a day on a harsh hwy short haul route in northern BC, Canada - my last point of call is actually 5 minutes from the southeast border of Alaska. I just rolled the van over 105000 kilometers this past week (65625 miles). I have had zero issues so far except for the aux fuel heater hose springing a leak which was fixed under warranty. I absolutely hammer this van hard every day with 2000 - 3000 pounds payload and it continues to deliver 30-35+ hwy MPG. I plan to keep it till it dies and then if the body and frame aren't rusted out, I intend to fix it up and run it some more. It has to go at least as far as my previous Express that had the 6.0L gas... which is now a shed with 972,000 km's on it!
