I saw someone driving down the road once with the boards coming through both rear windows, you know, perpendicular to the road. It didn't look *too* wide, but it was definately worth a giggle.

At least in wisconsin you are only alowed cargo to stick out of your vehicle on the right hand side by 6", and not at all on the left hand side, I belive this is past the mirrors.

I don't mind crossovers. They're just cars that look like SUVs, aka an "aesthetic" SUV. SUVs aren't really SUVs anyway, since I don't think half of them can withstand the off-road punishment that they claim. If someone has the ego-need to own a car that looks like an SUV but still gets midsize-normal-car MPG, that's ok with me.

I'm actually surprised they weren't done 10 years ago.

oh it was kinda done 10 years ago, it was called a tracker:D and samuri or what is it called...they were around, just never caught:thumbdown: well besides thier ability to roll in all directions;)

Sweet haul. My experience has been, back when I actually had a truck, that I rarely even hauled anything in it, minus a move or two. Now with the Rex, I've hauled entire engines, trannys (the mechanical kind), whole doors, compressors, and once pulled the passenger seat and crammed 2 parts cars worth of stuff until it was barely safe. Take that truck-chassised suburban pieces of fleeting vanity! See proof below as I found my old post of haulin' stuff...

Note: This is in a 22-yr old 2 door hatchback 1.5 liter 92 horse furious go-cart that was the shortest wheelbase car available in the US for that year (1985).

Trucks are overrated...Post on RPR

My SUV

Lately, between 31-32 mpg!

This thing will haul a lot of stuff. I once used it to carry what was supposed to go into a full sized van that never showed up. My car was crammed to the gills.

Payload is 1200 lb. Underbody clearance is 7". I've had it off road - not so good really. Gravel roads, OK. Snow, shoot, I'll take this one with 4 snow tires over a 4wd with all seasons any day.

I probably saw these on maybe 20-30% of the cars in Europe. Anyone can have the utility of an SUV without the SUV!

I still don't understand why the european hitches look so crazy-go-nuts... but I s'pose they have one size receiver, so you don't have to buy five different balls.
