I spent two years looking for my rig--and I go to bed every night with a huge grin on my face. But that's just how it worked out for me. YMMV.
On a related note, there have been lots of conversations around here about financing used vans. For you to find $90k of financing for a 12 year old rig is an achievement. Care to share? Again, curious minds want to know. I'm going to guess that you are not borrowing against the van's equity. If you are, I want to know how you found someone willing to appraise that van for that much. That would be quite remarkable--but very useful information for others who are looking for financing for used SMBs.
