Yeah i hear ya. I've gotten rid of a lot of stuff and taken back old books and stuff over the last term, but i figure a little trailer will be nice to have for my mattress and the rest of the random stuff i have left to move it all at once (saves big time on gas/time/money)....

I bought a bunch of those Rubbermaid totes. That way i never really have to fully unpack. but i don't have that much stuff, i only stayed at the Frat house about 3 nights a week. i don't even know what i'm going to do this year with this new job.

I do the same thing!! Well, when i move stuff i use those rubbermaid totes. Keeps everything dry in the bed. I sometimes just wish i had a canopy for moving stuff to keep the dry, but i make do.

Well, i bascially did the same thing, kept the apartment through the summer while i worked near home. Makes things easy and less stressful, but might cost a little more..

Well people use them here, but it's only the super mexi's.
I understand the point of them, they just look super lame.

I dont think they look mexi at all. They look decent enough. Now if they were chrome or painted to match on a bright colored vehicle then yes. Me personally no matter the weather I like to have my drivers window cracked. So they come in handy quite often for me.

I like Grants truck because it is lowered and cool but still functional. As for the window vents I'll never own another vehicle without them. Just too convenient for when you need some fresh air but it's raining or snowing.

LOL @ the drop hitch. You need a reverse drop hitch lol.
