Portable garage, bathroom, and everything is locked up. 10.000 gross so you don't need med card. Driven less than 100 miles a week so fuel is not a factor

Is it gas, any pics?

9mpg is what I get with my Cummins pullin my 20' enclosed trailer.

Floor in the Isuzu style trucks are made above the tires. I would want a side door on the passenger side.

That is a VERY nice box truck!!!!! That is what I want.

What size is the box?
Did it come with the dove tail or you added it?
Did you buy it new or used?
Can you fit 2 ztr's in it?
Is it gas or diesel?
What kind of mpg are getting with it?

Thanks

I can answer a few of those myself because I know a little from looking at 'em for sale...

his is a diesel..if you look under the driver's side windshield wiper it has a decal that says "TURBO Intercooled".

It appears to be at least 14' from looking at it and, speaking as an owner of a 14'er, yes, you can fit 2 zero turns on it. I will add that you have to be mindful of your floor space. I recommend utilizing the wall space as best as possible when you get one. Not just for trimmers & edgers, but for blowers, sprayers, etc. as well
