I have a three year old Grand Caravan, and other than the door catch, it
is quite nice for moving racks around. Two DEC 6 footers fit nicely. I
once managed to cram two KS10s in it at one time.

The real hauler is a simple (but not cheapie) flatbed trailer and a
hitch. Most cars can tow at least 1500 pounds, so if you get (or rent) a
nice flatbed, you can get 800-odd pounds off your rear axle with even a
medium sedan.
