Check Trader.ca and compare the price to similar trucks. Sounds to me if it's all you say, the price is probably reasonable. Cheaper is always better, if you can chisel down the price a little. Remember you may still be spending another few hundred dollars to a grand on an older vehicle, on things like tires, battery, brakes, etc., no matter how good the condition. I think if you're a CAA member you can get it mechanically inspected with a full report for about $100(?). It'll give you a nice list of what you can expect to spend on repairs, etc. The nice thing about a truck like that is that they're pretty easy to work on yourself (or your son!), compared to a lot of FWD cars.
If Princess Auto were a real girl, I'd ask her to marry me.
