    The way to get stuff done.

    No way I could work out of a van.

    What kind of mileage does it get?
    General public's attitude towards our energy predicament: "I reject the reality of finite resource depletion and substitute it with my own; energy is infinite, we just need an alternative storage medium to run the cars on. The economy can grow indefinitely - we just need to "green" everything! Technology is energy! Peak what?"

    350 gas motor. Only 100k miles in 9 years. Gets driven every day but it is almost all local.

    I didn't know service vans had a floor! Haven't seen mine in years. Just too clean for me.

    Tanks have chains, don't really need them. Recovery machine has a bungee cord holding it and the soldering back on the shelf.

    I've dreamed of one of those. I'd add a roof mounted a/c unit. I'd have to decide between gasoline or electric though.
    Maybe one of each.
    Too hot here in SC to work in one of those without it!

    There seems to be alot of used step vans out there, for a decent price..

    It's fine without ac, not like I spend much time in there anyway. Just to get a part or tool for the most part.

    did you design the inside yourself, or did you have someone do it?

    if you did it yourself you should start a side business doing that.

    I think I have tried to fit all that into a van, doesn't work well. Nice setup. Wish I had one.
