I love my Suzuki SX4 but it's getting to that time when I need to think about another UTE.

I notice that many vehicles today have nothing underneath to tie a boat down.

Any suggestions in the way of a small all wheel drive vehicle?

We've used a Rav4 for the last 20 years. (2 of them)
An excellent machine for what we wanted. We pushed ours as a bush mobile.

They come with one gigantic eye bolt that you're supposed to screw into the bumper when you need to be pulled out of the ditch.
We bought another and left them installed forever.

The roof rack sucks but that seems to be the norm.
Bolt on some good 2x4's and live happily ever after.

My body can't take the small vehicle anymore so now I drive an F-150 and pull a canoe trailer.

I have a Subaru Outback and it has a great roof rack that folds vertically to the car when not needed. I use that in combination with these both back and front.
