To Cargo Van Or Not To Cargo Van

So, Kim and I have been debating about the wisdom of buying a cargo van and when to do so.

The thinking is that with a cargo van, we could load up the stuff we are going to bring with us to said property (to start the Homestead) in that cargo van.

You know, slowly acquire tools, seeds and equipment over the next few years as we are also building up savings. Then we can bring those with us in the cargo van along with our personal stuff.

Another thought is that that cargo van would tow Wanda as the truck would be used to run around town and/or be driven separately.

There is some thought about selling Kim’s car before heading out as . . . as nice as her car is (and it is nice) it is a small car and might not do well on back roads or the no roads of the future property.

So, then Kim would either drive the cargo van (driven separately) or drive my truck, if the cargo van was pulling Wanda.

I am leaning towards having the cargo van not pull the trailer, as both would be loaded down with stuff.

Yet the question is, when to buy that cargo van and if it is bought early, as in within the next few months, what to do with it in the meantime?

Yet if we wait too long, then we are in a rush to buy a cargo van and may not get a good deal or leave only to discover that there are repairs that are needed.

So we are both left with the question: do we buy a cargo van now, later or never?

As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive and keep moving forward!
