Thoughts on crew cab long boxes

What are your option on crewcab long box are they just too long? To hard to drive and park? Or would it be useful for a landscaper? Thanks

Battleship turning radius. Need 2 harbor tugs to park in tight streets. If you need to carry a whole crew a shortbed crew cab and a longer trailer.

I figured they suck to turn... Found a pretty good deal on this one, don't really want s long box but for the price I figured I'd look at it.

I have a 97 F350 cclb. Awesome for tool boxes and other gear. But at roughly 21' long it can suck.
My 06 ccsb is my DD and far easier to get in and out.
But, if you've got a good deal. Grab it

Asking 8k it's a 07... I also am looking at an 04 extend cab long bed Chevy 2500. Just weighing my options. Ext cab would probaly be the best. If I need s crew cab the ext cab could probaly get me by for the time being

It might be a big truck, but you'll get used to it quick, and then you'll wander how you did without it

So I have to assume parking garages and parallel parking is out of the question if I ever go anywhere with either of those. I'm just afraid it will be too big of a truck, but I also don't want to get the ext cab long bed and wish I got a crew. Just don't want to get stuck with one and want the other

For 2 foot of a longer bed? That's what I have trailers for.

Best crew vehicle IMHO is a 350 class van. Can tow the trailer and haul the crew.
