We are going to be taking on about 40 new commercial clients this year, and we have thought about buying a 6 or 8 passenger van to take the employees and equipment around. The van would need to pull a 16-18' trailer along with 2 or 3 scags, 36"-52" .... of course fuel cans, weedeaters, blowers and the rest of the little stuff. What kind of van should we purchase? I still am not sure if we are going to purchase a van or a crew cab truck... Of course we are looking to make sure that whatever we buy is going to be more fuel efficent then trucks are. I know some vans use just as much gas aas a truck, some more. I was thinking of buying a v 6 van more likely chevy. The reason why I want to buy a van so much is because the new clients will be spread out so much anywhere from 40-100 miles away from our home base. Does anyone use vans? I know when we first started out, our first vehicle was a 4 door marquis, then an omni, then a caravan and then finally a truck haha 9 years ago cant believe it, look back and think it is funny BUT you got to start out somewhere. The nice things about vans CARGO vans is what im referring to here by the way, is that you can stack your tools nice even when it is raining and have just your mowers on the trailer. Insight would be nice on a van purchase. Repeating myself many times here, do any of you use vans, and do they work pretty good?
