You do not have to have a large truck to haul long (16') sections of baseboard, crown molding, etc. However, you do need some type of roof rack on top of your vehicle.
I built a wood rack from a 2x4 to go on top of my Acura MDX SUV. I ripped the 2x4 into two 2x2 pieces, 8 ft long. Tied these together with 4 cross members. Two of these cross members were spaced to fit between the cross rails on my roof rack. These two members were then covered in an old inner tube.
The home made wood rack was fastened to the MDX roof rack by two band clamps.
Now I can haul long lumber that only overhangs its support by 4' on each end.
