I have a Vauxhall Vivaro Sportive LWB 2018 . It's pristine ( yes I'm sad I hoover it out every night and give it a quick wash ) I've had it from new and am very pleased with it but with all my Stihl machinery being combo and half the size of my old stuff I'm wondering if I could get away with using a pickup truck
Yes the first and maybe only problem is lifting my Honda HRX in and out and having to drop its handles first etc . I only use it once a week the rest of the time it's shrub trimming and blowing. Come winter it's mainly blower work only and I never carry waste. Tree pruner could be a problem though....but once again how often do we use one
I often look inside my van and wonder why I carry 4 different types of shovel, an assortment of clothing as if I was going up Everest not to mention socket sets, screwdriver sets, enough Petrol and diesel to run a tank for a week . It's crazy I know but you just never know.
Basically now if it isn't orange and powered I probably won't be using it in the future. If it's snowing or monsoon weather I'll just stay in the van
Security is an issue but my wife comes along with me most of the time for company so that's sorted. Over night it's secure at my house
I fancy the Toyota Hilux Invincible X any opinions?. Yes they are expensive but extremely reliable and look the part.
Any advice on sellling this idea to the wife. Yes I've tried the " It'll be far far more comfortable for you than the van passenger seat "
