Anyone familiar with 15 passengers vans?

I've driven a ton of rented ones but otherwise dont' know much about them.
Anyone know much about working on them, how reliable they are, what to look for, etc?

One buddy had a (I think) '90 or '91 Ford E250. It was set up as an ambulance for a nursing home so it had major suspension to accommodate the wheel chair lift in back. We called that one the Jambulance. Lost the trans in Nevada someplace once which they had a shop replace.
Also had a dodge 2500 also an early 90's model (I think). This one was Nirvana's tour van for a bit. Driven from DC to Seattle by Dave Grohl then sold at some point to my wife's band and driven by them for years, then later by our band. They had a tranny or two go out also if I recall.
And last but not least, an '85 chevy starcraft conversion van complete with captain's chairs and a queen sized bed!
I did basic tune-up stuff on them and space is a pain in the rear. I think if I were about to get into one again, I would pull the motor out and do a full reseal and tuneup to try and minimize the chance of having to be in there.
I also seem to remember that the plastic and rubber parts are short lived on these vans because of the heat and lack of good airflow.
Well, it's not much info, but this forum doesn't seem to get much traffic so you'll have to take what you can get!
