Default Type of car for VT trip

My friends and I are going to drive 6 hours up to Stowe next weekend. One of my buddies has access to a big touring van that we can borrow for free. The car is in great shape. If there is no snow and driving conditions are solid does anybody think driving such a big car might be a hazard? I have experience with larger vehicles, but not in "winter" conditions.

Any info is appreciated.

I had gone up to Jay for NYE weekend. We rented one of those 12 passenger vans w/o realization that they are all RWD. Let's just say it was a real HIGH anxiety road trip whenever we were on the road. FWD or AWD should be no problem. RWD, don't even attempt it. Never renting those vans for VT trips anymore...

I don't think you'll have any problem with no snow on the roads... Went up to Mt. Snow last week and you basically just pass truck rigs on one lane roads. If they can fit safely, I'm sure you and your friends will be just fine.

Appreciate the advice. I think we are going to try it out, but be cautious at the same time. It will just add to the road trip experience!
