Hey there! I’m in need of a new harpmobile fairly quickly. I was hit head-on 2 weeks ago and my poor ’96 Chrysler Town and Country was totaled. It took the accident like a champ though and I was able to walk away with only a sprained neck, sprained right knee, sprained right ankle, and bruised ribs from my seat belt; however I am now in need of a new car because I can’t keep renting forever (although the ’14 Dodge Grand Caravan I am renting is quite nice :P).
I was reading a few posts on the forums here that said Toyota Matrix’s are amazing harpmobiles! I love the idea of having a smaller, more fuel efficient vehicle that can also move a CG, so here’s my questions! As far as the Toyota Matrix goes, can you put a CG and accessories in one and still fit a passenger in the front seat? If not, what other types of cars do you guys suggest for harp moving that can move a CG and fit one passenger? I’ve been looking into minivans with stow and go seating because I know a minivan will work well since it’s all I’ve ever used to move harps, and I want the stow and go if I do get a van because I live in an apartment with no garage so I have no where to store the bench seat that I would normally take out of a van to load my harp. However, when I found out there was a possibility of getting a smaller (and cuter!) car to move my harp though, I was thrilled! So I’m really hoping you guys have some suggestions other than the standard minivan. I’m only 24, so the longer I can stay away from looking like a soccer mom, the happier I’ll be 😛
