Your budget limits your choices to old and rather worn out pick-ups. You might find a 2006/07 Mitsubishi L200 or Toyota Hilux, but these will have sky high mileage and most-likely be more trouble than they’re worth. The L200, for example, needs a new timing belt at 62,000 miles and this alone will set you back £300 for the kit. If you don’t need four-wheel drive, I’d ditch the idea of a pick-up and buy a van instead because you’ll get much more for your money: vans.honestjohn.co.uk/van-top-10s/top-10-small-use.../
