    Jason, Ebay Isuzu NPR, there is a flatbed with 67,000 mi. looks real nice, in Siloam Springs, Arkansas. Might be worth a look, 4 days left.

    I personally like an enclosed van. It is a tighter fit for your equipment but it is nice to keep it heated inside to protect my investment when the cold weather hits. Also keeps the thieves from helping themselves.

    Had the trailer for the two years but hated hooking/unhooking and the constant feeling of driving a semi-trailer.

    If you go the van route, vent to the back (I had no overhead room), out the top (which eliminated garage parking) or the side (ugly appearance IMO) to eliminate the constant smell of gas.

    I had one of those when I first dated my wife.
    No wonder her parents hated me!

    Things are going alright, Lou.
    Cool logo. Maybe even a tiny bit cooler than the one I made for you.
    :thumbsup:

    I like the van setup too. I rarely smell any chems or gas. Just keep a small open bag of Simple Cherry in the van. Air freshener baby!

    Thanks. I initially hated the yellow, but it has begun to wear on me. 2005, 11K miles, $12,500 - got a great deal on it from a friend who works for Ford so we settled with the yellow.

    I store my chemicals and mix my stuff each day before heading for the jobsite...

    That's a really nice looking setup!!! If you ever do start using bleach, I'd put it on a small trailer with a heavy duty axle.. It'll rust all your equipment and van, otherwise. Bleach rusts everything it contacts.
