I am 70 mom90. We do day long road trips regularly.
I do hand painting on small furniture items. I can fit them in my car with ease. Then later on after working with the furniture I am fashionably off the events. My mother used a walker we just pop the door and in back it goes without my having to unload all of my painting tools my daughter lives in Atlanta and my sisters in south Louisiana and my mom and two dogs drive there regularly. It handles the road like a charm. And this 70 year older arthritis, double joint replaced does all the driving with no problem from the back or joints. I usually ready to hit the thrift stores for pieces for my next projects. The only regret that I have related to my car is that it is not ted and I didn't buy it sooner!??.
