    They are more attracted to the van graphics than the van itself. You can take an old dull van and wrap it like new.

    I hear ya on the convenience of a wagn tails but not everyone can afford one. If a van has the basics and you are an excellent groomer you work speaks volumes vs the van itself or trailer you are pulling.

    I think we've gotten away from what the OP was asking which was, simply, "Is it worth it to go mobile?" And I think Dolly answered that question the best. Just sayin'. :-)

    It's worth it if you can get used to working in a van and driving and handle issues that come up. I have found there are groomers who work in shops and would never want to be mobile. They either like being in a shop working around others and don't want to drive for a living. They feel they can do more in a shop volume wise and creatively. Mobile for the most part is express grooming. Not to say it's subpar work. You have to get it done and move on.

    If you can't do at least 7 grooms, you really are not efficient in mobile. My groomers do 7 to 10 and are back by 5 to 6pm, with driving.

    I personally would get a qoute very good temp. disability Insurance also to cover...well living!!!... Anything can happen to our health, we never know, but with a van payment on an $85,000 or even a $40k rig???...you can count on that payment not being made if you where injured. Just saying thats ALOT of bread, and it is coming off of your monthly salary. Not being a doom cryer or anything, Just think ahead.... I tore my flexor tendon in my thumb (yes dominate)(so lets say I blew my engine...my scissoring engine) I was out of work 10 weeks, plus some more.
    I personally like Toms input, and his ideas on Rigs.. I dont like big payments on anything, house, cars....cuz I don't like stress and I am free willed person, so having large payments would interupt, I would much rather have fun!!.lol... But if you have the clients that will carry you..You Go Girl and it sound like you worked hard!!!
