    I am buying a new (used truck) and was curious as to what the opinions are about the box trucks with the dovetail beds as opposed to a regular pick up and trailer. One positive I thought of was it would be harder to vandalize or steal eqmt in a box truck with the dovetail. I appreciate any feedback
