    Does the company still make them, or are we done with them? Seems silly to keep brick loading 1000's day after day. The workhorses are great trucks, but there are only a few in my center.

    p1200s so they can add another section or two of house calls to the bricked p1000? ;D

    When the boss feels there's a need for one you'll get one. Get in his ear...and stay there. Larger truck = more work, be careful what you wish for.

    I'd be happy with a p1000 with less than 500k miles on it.

    Haven't seen a new P 12 in years. Only the new and narrower P 8's and P 10's.

    You're still wet behind the ears.

    You'll take what you get and like it.

    Newest P12's I've seen date back to about 2005 or 2007.

    UPS don't like empty space in their trucks

    Biggest we ever had was a P-800. One of the best days I ever had was the day I talked them into putting my route into a P-700. (always got some bulk taken off with a 700 and it had power steering and low steps).

    We only have 7 p 1000's. 1200 are too big to fit into our building. Can't close the overhead doors
