pretty good hauler. Kevin, on the other hand, sees wagons as barely a
step above a minivan (I tried to remind him that we didn't need a sporty
car, we've already got motorcycles).
So minivans were obviously right out.
We were considering the Subaru Legacy (or Outback) wagon, but the
headroom was iffy and the legroom between the steering wheel and the
seat wasn't too good either.
There are times when the hauling capacity of our Forester is
disappointing, but with creative packing we've fit six full-size
footlockers in it with a few boxes and duffels of loose items. Still, a
local (15 miles or less) event can be a 2-load event (and that's with
one of us on a motorcycle with the passenger seat loaded up too).
