I know this if very, very first world problems, but I have 6 cars and think I would like to shake it up a bit.

The Line Up

Currently I have this:

plus this:

It's a good truck, but a bit boring.

I'm thinking of downsizing a little bit. Having that many vehicles is a lot to keep up with, maintenance-wise, and as you can suspect they all need a little work.

Current Vehicles

Each vehicle has it's own purpose/reason why I have it (from left to right):

1) 95 FZJ80 - is absolutely unstoppable offroad.

2)Unimog - if I could start it, it'd be unstoppable. Also great at car shows/parades/movies. Not running, currently.

3) 88 4Runner - this is swapped with the 3.4l 5vz-fe and stripped of all excess, making it super light and a blast to drive (and jump)

4) 78 Corona - just a little oddball rwd wagon. Not worth much. Yet.

5) 93 Miata - 1.8 swap, AC/PS delete. Good gas mileage DD, occasional autocross

6) 2013 Tacoma - comfortable, reliable, tows boat real nice.

Needs

It's always important to think about what needs are being met by your cars. Here's what I do:

1) Commute 25 miles each way, 5 days a week

2) Roadtrip a good bit. Driven from Key West to Plattsburgh, NY so far this year. Often we take 2+ dogs. Often we take bikes. I would like to be able to drive offroad when I get there occasionally.

3) Pull a trailer. Sometimes a boat, sometimes with motorcycles.

Options

On the short list is the Tacoma. It costs a shitload to own, gets pretty bad MPG and I can't offroad it because it costs so much. Plus, the dogs aren't super comfortable in the back seat. It does tow well.

Options:

A) Sell Tacoma and FZJ80 Landcruiser and get at 2005-6 UZJ100 Landcruiser - it can tow the boat, can roadtrip in comfort for all passengers and is excellent offroad

B) Sell Tacoma, keep FZJ80 and get at Forester - Forester great for long trips and mild offroading with dogs. FZJ80 can tow the boat, but not great for longer trips (unless I upgrade stuff, which is an option)

C) Sell Tacoma and buy a full sized van! Be great for roadtrips (once equipped) and likely can tow boat well. No offroad, though.

Suggestions?

What do YOU think I should do? I want less of a car payment and less things to fix, generally.
