Mike, Here's what I did. 1) Get a pontoon boat. Find out your car is too small for it. 2) Buy an F150 for the pontoon boat. Ah, much more roomy! 3) Figure out that you really wanted a float tube for the lakes. TU makes a nice tube called the Gunnison for about $100. It hasn't killed me yet and I've caught some monster fish out of it. Ultimately you will want to get a pontoon boat too, because rafting a river is FUN!
