I am looking at a 2007 T & C Touring van with 134000 miles on it for $8000. It's from Florida, so no rust.  I plan to do a conversion.  Anyone know anything about these vehicles, & what can I expect to break down on me at this age & mileage?

With no rust you must be thinking about AZ. there is a lot of salt & humidity in the air in FL. Not even counting the sun that fog's headlights and damages paint on vehicles.

Unless you really like front wheel drive, that chassis is not going to be able to handle a lot of extra weight involved in most conversions. Even the Chevy Express 1500/GMC Savanna isn't stout enough for the purpose, most conversions are done on the 2500 chassis. 

If you aren't going to do too much you might get by. They are beyond common, finding a nice one cheap shouldn't be a problem. 

Some ideas:
