are you looking at the same vehicle 99% of the time?
We've got a pickup and 25 days of the month the bed is empty, but the other 5 days the bed is completlely full along with a fully loaded utility trailer.
Other people get them for hitting the ski hills in the winter or towing boats (good luck towing a 20 something foot grady white with a ranger), it may not be in use every day, but its more economical than having 2 vehicles or renting one every time you need to move something (not to say some people dont really need trucks)

I was thinking the same thing about cars just now. What is up with car drivers anyways? Every time I see them I always see 1 or 2 people in cars that seat 5 or more. I mean honestly, I am sure that some need them for moving more people around but 99% of the time I see them with only 1 or 2 people in them, a Miata or Scooter could do the same. Couldn't people get a smaller car like a smart car or even a scooter?
