I have had several vans in the past.....I have hauled a bunch of stuff that you never would have believed. I have considered buying another since I thought it might be more economical traveling and better gas mileage than my truck....glad it worked out for you!

Vans have their advantages. Keeps the load dry.

Plus, you're less likely to draw attention to yourself, unless of course, you strap a

snowplow to the roof. :smilewink:

I think my GT14 was a little bigger than his "tractors in the van" :rolling:

Glad the van was up to the task.

Squeezed her in there! I had an Astro, not really a minivan, but GM advertised as a "mid size" van. Pull the seats and I could haul 4x8 sheets of plywood and it would tow 5500#'s!

I had an Astro,

I had a 2004 Astro and really liked it. I don't think the wife was real proud of it though. Can't recall having a garden tractor in the back but it hauled trailer load of them just fine.  :thumbs:

Mine did quite well, only got rid of it cause I bought the Tahoe on a last minute ebay bid, DOH!

I pushed the towing limits a coupel times too!!!

Not many people see many like mine, I kind of rednecked it out :rocker2:
