For small amounts or plywood cut into halves I can get by with our ‘98 Dodge Durango. For bigger loads, I also have a 5X10 utility trailer.

My hauler is a 1988 Chevy 4×4 with 245,000 miles. She is semi retired to haulin lumber and plowing the driveway. Lots of local lumberyards around here. First pic above was couple hundred BF of cherry, walnut and ash. Went back for another pallet of 200 BF of cherry shorts for $60. Still working on that stack. It has beefed up springs and oil cooler. Can haul around 2000 lbs.

Despite how it may look….it’s totally safe….Get to the jobsite, cut the ropes and it slides right off the trunk onto the ground

You’d be surprised how much lumber you can get into a Mazda Miata. (if its warm enough to put the top down)

Pickup, pickup, pickup, dude. Anything with a be more than 4’ wide bed will do. I just let 8’ stock angle over the top of the tailgate and it travels fine.

2005 Dodge Caravan. I have stow away seating. Goes from full passenger to full cargo in about 3 minutes. 4×8 sheets go flat on the floor with all the doors closed. 10 ft boards go in next and get slid up between the front seats. 8 foot boards no broblem. I’m done 12 footers in a pinch but have to tie the back hatch down as the stick out some.
