      Yes but think of the Stress and Strain on the unibody.
      Americans hate EVs because they grew up with Power Wheels that were glacially slow, ran out of power in 20 minutes and took an entire day to recharge.

      Reasons i can think of:
      -More engine and brakes
      -Certified wrecker driver
      -Insurance to go along with
      -and $$ involved for all (except crappy truck owner)

      The other two are parts car to be sure that they can keep the car running for 25 more years.

      Yes!

      On that note, I would really like to see how that wise and industrious redneck tied the trailer's frame rails to the van's unibody. In keeping with overall quality of the vehicle, I'd expect it's secured with JB weld, c clamps, park benches, and a toilet plunger.

      Thank you. I edited it again to add that because I remembered the Previa had a M/R layout

      It is locked but you can still find/view it. Just use the search function, searching user name on TCL.

      I'll bet he used his COVID stimulus check and splurged for a bunch of hose clamps.
