This was the truck my dad bought 6 months before he lost his license. It had 7,046 kms on it when I picked it up. It was a fair deal for both of us. I just ordered new wiper blades and rubber floor mats after driving it to work in the pouring rain this morning. And I'm currently shopping for a retractable tonneau cover as I don't want to be hauling the kids' hockey gear in the cab. My pickup driving buddies warned me against the roll-up and folding ones. It's funny, the insurance is less than my 2013 C300 by five dollars a month with all the same coverages. Cheaper parts and repairs I guess.
Also a lot more durable than a C300 MB in an accident. You're full Body on Frame. So with the added mass you're less like to take extensive damage.
Plus yes, more local parts. Trucks are great for t hat.
That is a low amount of KM on a nice new truck. For Tonneau I prefer the Tri-Folds. But with all trucks you're gonna find we all have our opinion on what works best. With a cottage, the Tri-Fold was perfect for us, personally. Roll ups (if we are talking about the same thing) are not nearly as durable IMO. But with all things YMMV so.
