Too bad you're so far away from me. I've got a nice 2003 Hyundai Santa Fe for sale for $4900.
Seriously, if you are looking at used cars you might want to consider the Hyundais -- there are several early to mid 2000's wagon models that are good boat haulers and they tend to sell for about 20% less than similar vehicles by other more popular marques. They are solid, well-made cars with good ground clearance for getting down dirt roads. They also tend to get better gas mileage than other makes of the same size. I have regularly hauled multiple kayaks and canoes up to 18' on this one I have.
