Have you ran the numbers for a used vs new scenario? Ive found that we typically come out a head when we buy used fleet vehicles after the big guys are done with them. We are going to come out even further ahead next year when we build another barn with our own service bay and hire a night mechanic at his hourly rate vs shop rates.

We just got an old brickman truck w 55k on the clock for a bit over 10k. Dump truck before that came from TGLC for a song and dance. The trick is you have to have cash and be ready to pounce when they come up.

My advice is this: make up your mind about which camp you are going to be in - new or used and stick to it.
If this post seems mean, it's probably because I'm drunk posting. Maybe my next one will be better...
