It was hilarious when we were loading new snowblowers in a snowstorm for customers that had just bought them.... They fit in a mini-van just fine but the guy with a Suburban had to take the chute and handles off to get it in.
Large vans and mini vans are great. Much more versatile than the average pick up.
I would love to find a full size Ford van with 4x4 and v-10 or turbo Diesel
I picked up a washer and dryer with the caravan and the back seats out. They slid right in.
Out on one of the back roads there is a 50's Chevy Panel wagon I would love to buy but the owner is one of those people that need a round tuit before they ever start working on it so he won't sell it. I ask him every once in a while if he wants to sell and the answer is always no.
I have never loaded wood in my SUV ..It's ok for other stuff but
Loading and unloading wood in a van or SUV would be a PITA
There was a gentleman here on the forum using a cargo van to haul wood and he posted the results of a few scrounges, coming to exactly the same conclusion, PITA. Can't remember enough info to hunt down those posts however.
When I go pick up kiln dried hardwood lumber, Even if it would fit in the back of the SUV , I just use the trailer cuz it is much easier, a PU would be better, no pissin around with the trailer
Or take both and load both. (the PU and the trailer that is.)
