So I have finally gotten a job that doesn’t pay in monopoly money or beer. The short version is, I will be traveling all summer and early fall and when I come back I am hoping to pay cash for a car. I need some suggestion on what I could look for in coastal Oregon.
- Big enough to sleep in the back (I am 6’3")/ room for equipment
- able to put a canoe/ kayak on top
- 20mpgish highway
- cheap to repair/ durable
- less than $10g
I am looking at the ford ranger, any other suggestions?
Update: Thanks everyone. I will keep looking around, my former car (registered to my parents) was a 05 sienna and that worked pretty well. The problem is that it did not do very well in the snow or in rough roads. I do a lot of hiking and climbing and the Tacoma is always in the parking lots so I figured a small truck with a “floor” in the bed (raised platform in the bed for sleeping with room underneath for storage). Anyone have experience with modifying minivan interiors?
