This weekend I used our 2016 Toyota Tacoma to do its thing, i.e., be a truck. Turns out it's pretty good at that.

    Nice to know it all fit. It's always good to have the right tool for the job. We had that exact same sandbox. Just sold it in a garage sale last month. We were able to squeeze it into the back of a Dodge Journey. Kids liked it when they were young, but no more. Also had a similar slide that we got rid of a few years ago.

    I've got a sandbox and a rather sizeable plastic castle that the kids have outgrown. It will be nice to reclaim the space, but I'm a little sad the kids aren't that young anymore! Could be a good hauling test for our minivan.

    Drat, my sister in-law picked up the castle with her Escape and a small utility trailer. I was actually looking forward to seeing how the minivan handled it. On the other hand, it had a fair amount of bug stuff and dirt worked into its crevices and could use a good scrubbing - all reasons my wife didn't really want to bring it inside the van. There's a very real chance something could have crawled out and paid her or the kids a visit later. So, there's a use case for a non-heavy duty or full size truck - sometimes there's stuff you just don't want to bring inside.
