I try not to let it fester too much, but whatever car I have has to occasionally do the tip trip. For the number of times most people have to do it, a trailer is laughably unjustified when a hatchback will do the job just as well. > >Unfortunately, our local tip requires you to have a permit to take a >trailer.

I have another car. It has two seats, absolutely no boot at-all and it's not road-legal yet. Having a hatchback for the family car allows me to have something interesting as a second car you see.
