Hey All!

I'm looking into making the switch from a 2012 Subaru Forester to a Honda Element. Ideally, I'd like to find an '07 or later model with around 90k-130k miles on it. I would like to get an ECamper installed to turn it into a multi-level camper. I have a dog who sits in the backseat and commute to work most days so I need a daily driver as well. I figured this would be a perfect compromise.

I'm wondering if anyone has any advice on what to ask/look for in Elements described in my range above. Common service issues/other issues? Any advice and insight is appreciated!

Also if anyone has advice into camping with the Element, that is appreciated as well. I mountain bike and ski, so would have a hitch rack or a roof rack. I travel often into the mountains so I was wondering about load capacity and clearance. How reliable is the AWD/4x4 model in terms of sketchy roads, snow, etc. I definitely would put good snow tires on it, but because of where I live, snow performance is essential.

Thanks in advance :)
