I plan on getting a service van or maybe two this fall and setting them up this fall,. I know how the companys set them up around here, However, I am curious to see what other setups are.

I was thinking one of those CHEVY HHR PANNEL cars but I couldnt really tow a clamshell.

If you guys have pic's thats great, if not, thats fine. I kind of know what I want to do in the van, but if I could get even better idea's that always helps.

thanks guys

HHRs are getting popular with plumbers and other service types here. You can do really eye catching graphics on them. I looked into them before deciding on an F-150 6 cyl.

Not as good as I like 13-15. Depends on how often I just sit in it with the AC on while I deal with calls.

AC sure doesn't help mileage. I lost at least 2 mpg with the AC on in my old F-150.

Here is a neighbors HHR setup. I bet you could do shotgun service out of that.

I'd guess it might be part of the basic package for that vehicle. Me for a stick shift, steel wheels, and windows that crank down. No heated cupholders, thankyouverymuch.

Gotta have those vented seats, with heat and cool, per the season.

But...... how many miles per DOLLAR does a diesel get you these days? Diesel is $4.89++/gallon here and 87 octane gasoline is $4.09/gallon.

Power windows, standard? That bothers me. Not that I'm planning to drive off a bridge, but there is something brutally practical about hand-crank-operated windows.
