The majority of us tow our boats, but what vehicle do you use to tow yours with?

I currently have a Focus Estate 1.8 diesel, and more often than not tow a double with youth boats on it, (Feva's/lasers etc) but need to change it soon and cant decide what to purchase.

relatively low roof and high roof load weight limit, so good for cartopping too.

Focus mk3 econetic. Woefully inadequate for towing an albacore. Otherwise lovely. My mk2 focus diesel was way better With the boat.

VW T5 (2.5tdi, LWB) for this modern day hippy. RnR bed and cooker unit gives the ability to sleep and cook, keeping costs down to bearable levels. Perfect towing manners too.

Had the same as B/scooter - excellent. Now have a BMW 520 Touring - often forget the boat is on the back unless I look in the mirror; 10" wheels on the trailer help though.
