Who carries a portable in their van with a truckmount?
I am thinking of rearranging things in my van to be able to carry a portable every day. Currently my Nautilus doesn’t fit. I am thinking of getting a belly fresh water tank to go under the truckmount and get rid of the over the wheelwell tank to make more room in the van and possibly get a smaller but good portable.
Thoughts?

I bought a portable February 2019.

I've used it about seven times since I bought it. For my market it's rare I need it

I do use my portable quite a lot. Thing is I currently have to use a dedicated transit connect van for hauling it. If I am able to haul it in the same van as my truckmount then I could get rid of the transit connect.

Do you carry your portable in the same van with your truckmount?

Just get a smaller portable if you don't use it that much. The mytee combo is pretty small.

We have portables but they never come out on the trucks, if its tough access we encap... if its tough access and there's bad urine I'll move on to the next job and tell them to replace or call someone else. Doesnt bother me, I hate tough parking and elevator jobs.

I could. But I dont feel the need to. Normally I know from the phone conversation if I need the portable.

I would not carry a portable in my van unless its getting used. All that weight is not necessary, plus wastes fuel
