      hi matt, i drive a jeep grand cherokee deisel my wife and myself go away a fair bit with our two grand children aged 9 & 15. oyr van is a 21ft jaco and is pretty well self supporting for approx 8 to 10 days of free camping the only stuff we put in our car is the kids stuff ( swags and tents entertaiment stuff ) so the car is just for us. as to towing our van weight is 2400kg with a 210 kg ball weight the jeep dose it very well and returns an AVERAGE usage of 14 to 15 lt per 100ks. the longest trip done so far was to cunamulla (400ks past bourke ) took us two weeks of driving and free camping with the kids in tow. had no isues with the kids or the van.
