    Sounds lilke a great way to fume yourself to death or blow up the truck capturing fumes. There's a reason no one else uses a box truck.

    Black Dawg Asphalt Sealing Franchises require that their tanks be enclosed in a box type van or truck.

    I think a box type trailer would be a good idea due to the fact the black mess would be enclosed where no one could see it. And also the sides to the trailer or truck would allow for a large advertising surface. But you have to remember sealer and sand is extremely heavy so you would need something that could handle the load bearing weight. And you would want something large enough that you copuld sometimes stand up and work in.

    Looks cleaner, but must be fun to fill the tanks when they are inside the truck.
