    Today I Got A Taste Of Thieves. $1900 Of My Equipment Was Taken Off My Trailer As I Mowed And My Employee Was Weed Eating In The Back Of A House. Funny Thing Is I Saw The Guy Standing Near My Trailer And Didnt Even Go To See What Was Going On. They Didnt Take Any Of The Mowers I Had Left On The Trailer,but They Got My Fs85 Sthil Weed Weed Eater, 550 Blower, 320 Blower, Km110 Split Boom. Theses Items I Just Bought This Winter And I Did Not Have Them Insured. Just Had Not Thought To Add Them To My Policy. First Thing Monday Everthing I Had To Buy Today Will Be Added To My Policy.

    This is why Vans and SUVS are great. Lock your stuff up out of the hands of the crooks and the rain.

    That really sucks. I hate the thought of someone else using my equipment without paying a dime.

    No, he means vans. A d-250 van is the same thing as a d-250 truck, same with ford and chevy: same engine, same tranny... Only difference is the body style, and vans rule!!! You can even paint the back windows black from the inside so then nobody can see inside.
    Only drawbacks are:
    Bit more of a pita to back up, you can never look out your back window no more.
    Takes a bit longer to get stuff in and out, but you can build racks out of wood, you can store a LOT more stuff in a van than a p-up.
    We're talking cargo vans here, not the kind with seats hehe
