  New or Used?
  Posted by: cedarcanoe on Oct-04-12 11:47 AM (EST)

I could go either way...if it's used I'd prefer 3-4 years old, with some good life left in it.

The roof rack on the new Highlander I looked at was so short. It started well back from the trailing edge of the front doors. To balance a canoe on the rack it would have to project well out behind the vehicle.

I love my '04 Sienna for it's capacity. It holds two 17' canoes w/o problem. Just wish it had better fuel economy, mostly 'cuz as our second vehicle it has to serve for daily commuting to work when we aren't out paddling.
