    Seems like whenever I don't have the money there is a ton of great deals on truck.

    Now that I have the money I can't find any:hammerhead:

    Im in the market for a cabover with a supreme vanscape body on it 16+ feet and must be diesel.

    Back a couple months ago I ran across two of them both were under 20K dollars and both had 40-50K miles on them. Now all I can find is either gas models or brand new models for 45K dollars!

    Anybody got any leads? Must be within 400 miles of charlotte NC.

    Try I-75 truck sales in Forsyth, Ga. They have a ton of 18-20' trucks with side doors and they put dovetails on them. They range from $6900-$16,500 with 42,000 miles. However, most have gas engines but that seems to be the way to go now. Talk to Clete and he'll tell you why gas is better. Good luck!!!

    Im sure everyone has their opinion of why gas or diesel is better. Im my situation a gas engine wouldn't live to long.

    On a decent year I may average 45K miles out of one truck give it a few years and it would need a new motor already if it was gas.
