I have spent the last several weeks looking for a decent full size pickup truck for about $5,000. To date I haven't found one that was worth what I could get the seller to agree to in price. So, I am thinking of going with a full size van. I think this vehicle will actually be better than a pickup. Here's why: Similar towing capacity Lots of secure inside storage space Larger signage space on sides So, do you think a van will work better than a pickup?
