MAKING SOME VEHICLE CHANGES

March 29, 2006

I think my family is ready for a change in vehicles. For some reason, my wife has had the sudden urge to look at new vehicles, so we drove into town to look at cars -- SUVs in particular.

Currently, we have a 2002 Buick Rendezvous and a 1979 Dodge Tioga motorhome. We decided that instead of the motorhome, we'd rather have a trailer and a vehicle that can pull it. The conveniences of a motorhome (like... being able to walk around in it while somebody is driving it) simply don't outweigh the ability to unhook an SUV or truck and leave the trailer at a camp site. If we have a small trailer (a popup trailer, possibly), we could have a small-to-medium-sized SUV to pull it along... and we'd be able to drive that vehicle as our primary car.

The Buick, unfortunately, can't tow anything. It's not designed to pull -- it's just a big, comfortable SUV-looking minivan, really. We still owe quite a bit on it, so it'd be cool if we could trade it out and get something cheap to reduce our debt. In the end, we'd like to have a "real" SUV and a trailer as our only real vehicles. That'd be pretty nice.

So... the hunt is on. If you know anybody with a small trailer or cheap SUV they want to sell, post a comment and I'll take a look.
