I agree 100%. I thought I mentioned that it doesn't make sense for some people to own 2 or more vehicles for different uses, but I guess I erased it or it's on a different thread? I dunno...
I couldn't get by with the Mirage as my one and only vehicle either. I should probably go over the cost's again one day, but I figured in the long run, it was cheaper to buy and insure the Mirage than it was to pay for the extra fuel and maintenance my old crappy dodge 1 ton requires if I were to keep using it as a daily driver. But not everyone has extra parking for 3-4 vehicles or has other reasons that make sense. I can't fit all our kids in the back seat of my Mirage(2 booster seats). But when we all do go somewhere together it's usually camping in the big truck or take the wifes sorrento.
The trailer we just bought requires at least a 3/4 ton. It's a 34' triple axle bumper pull with a 14,500lb gvw. It'l be like pulling a 12' tall brick down the highway, I can't wait!
