  2. Hello Ant,

    I use a van to haul my PG around. It works just fine. I don't have a digital camera but I will try to borrow one to snap some pics.

    The idea of pink DOES stand out. Even though you COULD (not necessarily,...being a small guy) run into some copyright trouble, I would be inclined to use a Pink Panther type logo. I think this would be nothing but too cool! There is a trucking company around here (actually Detroit area) that deals in landscape supply and boulders. Their company's name is Bedrock Trucking...and you guessed it,..they use Flintstone characters on their trucks.
    Speaking of color, down in Ohio (Hocking Hills area), there is a Garbage company who's trucks are all purple and decked out with chrome wheels and accessories. Now you talk about getting NOTICED!

    I use a van also. But I tow a 16 foot trailer to haul my fertitlizer, extra water, and the permagreen. I use the back of my van for backpack sprayers, chemicals, and tools, and my push spreader. A 12 or 14 foot trailer would be big enough, but I have other equipment where I need a 16 foot.

    how do you guys with vans deal with the odor issues. I thought about a van but opted for an enclosed trailer mainly because i didnt want to smell the fert. weed killer etc. all day long, Just curious?
