A second hand Caravan would be quite sufficient, and cheaper in the long run. You can drive the thing at less than 25 mph and call it a farm vehicle. If you want to drive it on the road otherwise will require EPA clearance, which is quite pricey. The vehicle will also have to be inspected by the state police folks, whoever they call themselves where you are at in the US. Should you go ahead with this, let us know how it goes. dave
