To your last point, after selling my last pickup truck I loved not being popular when someone wanted the utility it offered. Maybe you don't need one anymore? Sorry if I missed that somewhere. First I moved to SUV because of guiding and all weather service vehicle for my work. Then I moved to AWD station wagon. Now I rent a pickup or what's appropriate when I need it. The reality is this never costs much at all leaving me with the benefit of driving something that's much more comfy, efficient and safe the rest of the time. Again, sorry if I missed the needs part, but my renting when it is needed, and driving nice wagon rest of the time has really worked out well in so many ways. It's worth considering unless you really need a pickup truck often.
