I recently bought a house, and have been lamenting all the things my Camry can't haul. Plus, I'm hoping to buy a horse soon, so I'm thinking of upgrading to something larger. Problem is, I don't want two separate vehicles, so I need it to be practical as a daily driver, but capable of hauling two horses (me and a friend) if necessary.
I'd rather have an SUV, I think, but a pickup with a full-sized back seat would work too (I only have one kid, but it's nice to be able to have room for more than just him). I'm not too worried if it can't get up to speed quickly when hauling, but obviously don't want to burn out the engine/transmission, either.
So...what are some minimum specs I need to look for when I start vehicle shopping?
