I last week sold my 5th wheel camper and two hours later delivered my beast of a truck (2004.5 Dodge Ram 2500 cummins diesel)to a farm freind that bough it. Soooo now I have no more truck. I am to say the least happy to be rid of the camper and the truck was icing on the cake as both where paid for and since fuel for the truck around here is at $4.20 and climbing I figure I could do with out that expense. I have to vehicles and the usefull one is a Chrysler T&C;mini van to which I refer to as the man van now :vampire: Since it has full size hitch on it I am thinking of buying a 5x10 utility trailer as replacement for the missing truck bed. Prices on the trailer in my area with a 3,000 lb axle are $1075 new. A 5X10 trailer would give me more space then the short box pick up truck bed. I could also just remove seats from the van and fill it with wood as I can get to the wood pile located 7 miles from my house with the van. I might in heavy snow fall have to carry the wood short distance but I figure the extra time will be worth it since I will not have the expense of owning the truck anymore. So the trade off looks good now. What are your thoughts? Note I am not willing to even buy a junk truck as the cost would still far exceed that of a trailer. When figuring fuel license and insurnace and maintence.
