  Awesome, congrats!  And that's an amazing price!

  As someone who has moved quite a few of these, though, I must
recommend not even trying with your van, assuming we're talking about a
regular "van".  These are anything but standard racks; it'd be quite a
challenge to lay them down.  I'm guessing my 2400 weighs about 850.
