I have a 4 x 7 trailer I bought for $75 from CL that I tow with my 2000 Jetta TDI. The trailer is homemade on top of a car axle, so the trailer has the same size tires as the car! I've loaded that thing completely full with fire wood, didn't bottom out the springs, the Jetta still towed it easily, and still got 30+ mpg (let's see a truck do that!). I'll probably help a couple friends move this summer instead of them renting a uhaul as well.

In conclusion, as was probably stated else where, get the mpg of a car and the cargo space of a truck. I don't see a downside here.
