If he wants an UltraVan he needs to join the UltraVan Club and learn 
something about them.  They are really different from a car or van, made 
like an airplane, no chassis. They are 8ft wide and won`t fit on a regular 
car trailer but they will fit on a large rollback.  They can be towed but 
this is a tricky job especially on a long distance trip.
The UltraVan Club has people that can advise him in the proper ways to do 
things.  They have to be jacked or lifted in special places or damange will 
occur. On a trailer or rollback you can`t just tie them down by the 
suspension or you can break it, it has aluminum pieces there. UltraVans are 
special vehicles !
