I love this van!
It’s perfectly clean inside and out. You ride “high, wide and handsome” as my Dad used to say. There’s a bench seat behind the front seats for the canine crew to sit on and look out the window, plus — an important selling point — there’s rear air to keep them cool. I’m glad it has tinted windows, too.
You know how things can start clanging in the back of a cargo van? Metal against metal, so maddening, and sometimes it seems impossible to stop it. This van is fully upholstered throughout which means no clanging. I suppose it will add some insulation, too. The floor is not carpeted — another plus. It’s got a rubber/vinyl/whatever mat, meaning I don’t have to worry about doggie footprints, desert sand, or back roads mud!
Ooooh, I’m so happy!
Ok, so it’s not the most stylish vehicle on the road today. It’s a boxy, white van. It looks like I’m going to be fixing air conditioners or hauling girl scouts to camp. I know, I know. But I love it!!! It is so practical. I love things that are functional without a lot of foo-foo.
So it’s not a Jeep. I’m over it.
Now here’s the hard part for me. I promised I would share my expenses with you. You know, I don’t normally share anything with anybody. At least not personal finances. Dickering over price is not in my skill set, but I think I did okay.
I paid $8, 500 for a 2005 Chevy Express. Okay? Now don’t make me feel bad by telling me about a better deal you got. Anyway, I haven’t told you about another really cool feature it has…. which is my cliffhanger for today!
Happy Easter! A great day for a new start!
Can you believe Bridget has to be lifted into the new van? What a big baby.
