*1995 GMC box truck (insulated) DOT. Automatic, diesel, gets great gas mileage. 214,431 miles. Good tires, turns on a dime -- perfect for farmers' markets. Runs great!
*1 short semi reefer unit (with two side doors as well as moveable bulk head) and back double open door. (buyer to arrange for transport). Reefer unit worked last time it was used in 2012. Haven't used it since (runs on diesel)
*2 Colorado Department of Agriculture certified platform scales (AD SF-30 KB) (the swing arm in one of them is a little broken but still works perfectly).
