Driving too heavy loads is a bit of a pain... I bought a trailer full of soil and hauled it with our Nissan, my god that thing handled crappy at that point. Must have had about 2-3 tonnes in the breakless crappy little rental trailer. Anything over 750kg is illegal on those. But I got the load home, only had about 10 km to drive with it, and not much ups and downs. But it's not something I'll do again... The car was fine with it though, just the trailer that didn't really like it. That's the way people move heavy and big loads here, no one can afford to get a big truck for just that kind of purposes. Bought new, a basic option Toyota Hilux or a VW Amarok will set you back about 40K. The US made trucks with bigger engines are even more, due to them putting out so much crap out of the exhaust.
