When my parents moved up north to retire, they asked me to get them some stupidly big crew cab 4x4, so they could "move around dirt for the garden, etc". I told them two things - 1. get a cheapo utility trailer to tow behind their S10 style Jimmy 4x4, and 2. trailers are lower to the ground, and easier to load. Point 2 has been the biggest thing they like about the trailer, though I like point 1 in that they already had a decent 4x4 that was paid for, and for the $600 they paid for the trailer, and the 3 times a year they actually use it, it has saved them a pile of cash in both truck payments, and fuel costs.
