Isuzu npr vanscaper

I'm in the market for a 14ft. Isuzu NPR. There are two dealers I'm thinking of making a purchase from. Interstate Truck and Equipment Sales in Jefferson Georgia, they seem to have the best prices. 2007 NPR with dovetail for $18k. Industrial Power Equipment in Fort Worth TX has a 2006 NPR with dovetail for 23k. I like the 2007 model but I'm a little concerned as how Interstate sells 5k cheaper than the competition. The 2006 qualifies for an Isuzu Gold extended warranty. The 2007 has a 4ft dovetail with a 5ft ramp, the 2006 comes with a 2ft dovetail and a 7ft ramp. Need some feedback.

the one in georgia is probably ok. I bought a 2004 about 3 years ago from georgia north of atlanta. It had 58000 miles isuzu with 16ft box and 4ft dovetail for 15500.00 I flew there and they picked me up at airport and I drove it home. I did have some problems with rust. I think mine was used in ohio and the salt rusted the brakes lines. Overall great truck. Is it a box or a flatbed with dovetail. I have 3 now. The flatbed works great for mowing and landscaping. The box is only good for mowing.

Thanks for the feedback. I'm looking at a box, which is perfect for me because mowing is what I do.

Looks like I'm headed to Georgia for the truck. The boys in Texas didn't want to budge on that $23,500K price tag. Given the state of the economy and the price of gas I was comfortable with $21,500. Their website says $23,500k asking price, not set in stone price. I learned a long time ago not to get emotional during negotiations. I'm satisfied with the deal I'm getting in Georgia. Will post pictures soon.

U will love the truck. Just bought me one two weeks ago with the open landscape body. Either way enclosed or open is still better than towing a trailer.

Id keep looking, I bought my 2000 Chevrolet cutaway in 2008 with 110000miles for 6000$ with dove tail.

You can find realnice Penskee boxes for less than 10k and add a dovetail, or ramps.

I have been looking at penske and ryder. Ryder seems to have the best inventory right now. Im looking at one that the asking price was 19900 and otd is 12400. It also is 16 ft. Having to get dovetail added for 1900. I like the idea of buying a truck that was leased so maintenance was kept up too. Interstate in Ga has a 14ft dovetail w 105k and its around 13k.

I looked at Ryder and Penske and they seem high priced with high mileage on the trucks.
