Default Van Rental

Rented a van from uhaul for a week while my Jeep gets repaired. I'm so loving being able to carry so much.

But it drives like a tank. Lol

Don't worry, my posting had nothing to do with you. It's a long running forum joke.

That works both ways though, because I like you more now that I know you dislike GC's like I do!

Is the Jeep your regular every day work vehicle?

It's called 'work' for a reason... you generally don't get to drive in the lap of luxury.

My wife won't ride in my pickup, says it is messy and dirty, yeah well it lets us afford her Honda. Suck it up, THAT WAS THE WRONG REPLY. TS,


After driving a pickup the last 23 years, when I take a van the noise drives me crazy.

My metal shelves and bins were so loud I ripped them out and made my own out of wood. Much heavier but no more seriously loud noise and squeaking getting on and off NJTP Exit 13.

I have home made wood shelves in my van and they don't rattle at all. The only thing that rattles is the cheesy divider I bought from American Van equipment.
