    Hi guys, Just wondering everyones opinion on Cargo Van or enclosed trailer for a landscape lighting only business. Any input on pros and cons would be great. Our first year we had only a new Suv type Truck. Next year either a matching black Logo'd-up enclosed trailer or Van for installs,service, and Demo's.

    depends on how u operate....
    trailers are convenient becuase they can be left on site and helpers can work out of them. also if u use your truck as a personal vehicle the trailer is the way to go...but they are something else to maintain.. can be harder to maneuver,etc....

    i would go with the trailer.. this way if u need to leave the job for a material run your helpers can still have the trailer to work out of.
