I use a Ford f-350 pick-up and a trailer. It gets 24 mpg with a diesel engine and can haul a ton of stuff.
I used a 1/2 ton pick-up once at a take out and hauled two rafts and frames, 7 people and 4 dogs in one vehicle. We could have used 2 little vehicles, instead but it would not have saved us anything.
