Get rid of the Ford, and buy a Jeep Wrangler, Liberty, or Grand Cherokee 4X4.
No more problems!
Just my personal opinion, but I would not have any vehicle for a toad that needs modification of any kind. Especially not a Ford, given the problems that have been reported.
I would agree if he was a full timer. He will use two times a year and already has the Ford. He has 4 kids. That's total of 6 people. Needs a little room. LOL
OK, then get a Dodge Caravan and tow it on a dolly.

Since the Expy is a rear wheel drive vehicle, the driveshaft needs to be disconnected as mentioned by Bud above.... a trans lube pump will not suffice.
Options do indeed include a trailer, but not a dolly unless your friend wants to pull the Expy backwards. Trailers are a real pain and in most cases not recommended due to their size, weight, and lack of accommodations for them at rv parks...not to mentioned they will have to be registered and licensed.
HERE is the web page for the manufacture of the driveshaft disconnect. Just put in year, make, model and it will tell you what you need to do the job.
Hope this helps
