    This may be a stupid question but...

    I have limited cash and only 3 customers. I have about $1000 to spend on either a truck or trailer. If I get the trailer it will be hooked up to my wife's suv. But then I would have to buy the hitch as well. The biggest trailer I would need is 5x8 since I only would use either a 32 or 36 mower. If I get the truck I would just use ramps for it.

    I found a 80 f150 with only 45k miles that was used on a farm for $700. I will be checking it out this weekend.

    Any input would be great.

    shoot for that price come up with a little more cash, offer him 550-600 for the truck and buy a used trailer for about 500 and you have the best of both worlds. Leave momma's SUV alone
