i was thinking mannequin would work best because it would also already be able to attach to a base.

But they are super expensive, if I could find a damaged one that would be best since I'm planning on covering it anyways.

any one know where to find cheap mannequins beside craigslist?

ooh nice idea on the cargo van. We only have two passengers but were driving from Bozeman, MT which only has U-haul. I've heard they are horrible to rent from but we'll see. We also have an airport with all your regular car rental companies.

Car or truck rental tips

phew...thought I wasn't going to make it this year because our jeeps a POS BUT we can afford to rent a van! Yay!

So does any one have tips on how to protect the rental? Would covering it with a tarp do any good? Is the only real tip to just clean that sucker after we get home?
