    What?!!! There isn't any room for a MAKE-UP table and mirror in there! Trapshooters need a place for their hairspray, toe nail polish, and perfumes.

    The seller has a 66% feedback rating and the reserve is not met. SO what makes you think this is such a great deal? I would NOT even consider buying from someone who does not have at least a 98%+ positive feedback.

    If he has a 66% feedback , that is one bad deal out of 3. So if he has only had one sale on ebay , it muct have been the bad one. Hopefully the next 2 will confirm the 66%.

    The whole feedback issue on ebay can be a farce. Dissatisfied buyers are pressured into submitting glowing feedback reports if they want satisfaction, and just plain jerks can put whatever they want if they think they should have gotten better merchandise.

    I would read feedback before making any judgements.

    Earl is a stand up guy and I would have no problems buying from him. Anyone who enjoys making small creatures into bits of flying red mist and fur is ok in my book.

    EE I see you know nothing about bargins. Vehicle is 3 years old not four. Orginal retail and orginal invoice is only facts. Here is some other facts. A stablization rate of depreciation (7%-12% per year) makes used cars a better value than new ones. New vehicles lose and average of 20% of there value the instant you drive it off the lot. When coupled to the average yearly depreciation of 7% to 12% your first years loss is anywhere from 25% to 35%. This translates to a first year $6000.00 to $8000.00 loss on a $22,500 new vehicle or a $10,000 to $15,000 loss on a $40,000 one. That's why guys like me are so important. Futheremore, looses are often greater for the banks. If you drive more miles than the average person depreciation will be (35% to 50%) for the first year. Don't forget to factor in $1000.00 to $3000.00 financing fees. If you can afford to take these losses please sent money to me. Vehicles are poor investments.

    I like the van. My Prairie dog partner has the same one, and they travel really good.

    The AWD system lets us get in and out of the dog fields pretty good too.

    If I was overlade with extra jing I would be calling you. 3 guys on a trip splitting gas costs is still pretty fair, Lots better than singly in a tiny vehicle.
