What kind of vehicle should we buy for our vintage clothing business?

A friend and I run a small-but-growing online vintage clothing business. We've recently branched out into showing at vintage truck shows in the Chicago area. As of now, we've been using a friend's Saab hatchback. Unfortunately, this isn't a really a sustainable option for us; it's also a bit of a tight fit for our 200ish garments, 2 - 3 clothing racks, bust, and table. We're interesting in purchasing a used vehicle so that we can continue to travel with our merchandise. Ideally, we'd like something that is reliable, safe, and has some extra space to grow alongside our business. Unfortunately, our budget is on the low side: we'd like to spend less than $5000... the cheaper the better. Thoughts? Recommendations? Should we rent instead of buy? Thanks for sharing your wisdom!

I'm currently based in California. What are some good resources to help me figure out the best way to establish my business, both financially and legally? [more inside]

One Bag for the Business Traveler...

I'm going on a six-week trip to another city for an internship, and want to avoid being that person with the half-a-dozen elephant-sized bags. Unfortunately, most travel sites either focus on short business trips (>2 weeks) or backpackers. Any tips for travelling light on what will basically be a temporary relocation would be much appreciated.

help a moderately experienced business traveller pack for a long trip and keep her Zen

I travel regularly for work -- at least one week out a month during down time and three weeks out during peak time. But, my schedule is usually domestic, and always gets me home after 5 - 6 days, 10 at most... till now. I'm departing Wednesday on a four-week trip: first leg = two-day stops in all four US time zones, second leg = two weeks in one European city, with zero time home. I'm feeling anxious about my preparation. [more inside]
