Here's my pence....

A friend of mine was talking about getting a truck - to carry stuff.... Really though, he rarely carries much - occasionally a kayak... So far, using a thrift store blanket (recycling?) and loaning him some of my tie down straps, the kayak has been happy on the roof of his Accent.

Sure, a truck would be "easier" - but I convinced him that adding roof racks will be more utility than he needs... And even if he leaves the racks on all the time (I'm not saying he's lazy... but....), the fuel hit won't be nearly as much as the fuel hit of going from an Accent to any Truck.....
Cars have not created a new problem. They merely made more urgent the necessity to solve existing ones.
