Powered by Mom Blog wants to talk about pickup trucks
Why on earth would I want to talk about pickup trucks you may wonder? Well I came to the realization this last week when my minivan had a starter issue and we had to take it to the shop how versatile my husband’s pickup truck can be or should I say pickup trucks in general.
Think about it pickup trucks come in all sizes, four door, king cab, two seaters, long beds, short beds, one tonne, gas, diesel etc there really is a pickup truck out there for everyone. Since my husband started his own business 10 years ago he of course has had a pickup truck as he goes from job site to job site and over the years he’s also had one friend or family member ask for his help or should I say the help of his pickup truck. They’re wonderful for moving furniture, getting yard materials, tools and more, in fact his pickup trucks have been asked for more than my minivan ever has and I’ve had my van for 12 years now.
I do remember that when I was very young that most pickup trucks only had two seats but those days are over, you can still get one with just two seats or those lovely four door ones that can sit five people, although four adults is more comfortable. My husband has a Sierra diesel truck (same color as the one in the picture, looks similar 🙂 ), it’s not a four door it’s one of those crew cabs so it does have the four seats but it’s slightly smaller than those full four door ones. However, it’s perfect for us, it’s his work truck with all his tools but when needed (like when van was in the shop last week) it can be our family vehicle comfortably sitting all three of us and even our two dogs. Although our one dog is a chihuahua lol we could fit a bigger dog but there would of course be less room.
How many vehicles can carry the weight and amount of “things” like a pickup truck, be a family vehicle, come in one tonne size, gas, diesel etc.. besides a pickup truck? Not many that I know of, so see what I mean versatile as you have so many choices and trust me we’ve used my hubby’s pickup truck for a variety of things, he hauls large gates, fences, cementing equipment, getting groceries, loading up and transporting an ATV, helping people move, including us and even going to a drive in theater now that was fun!
So if you could have any pickup truck what would you choose? So many choices it might take you a while to decide. Feel free to comment below we love reading your comments!
