Hi BITOGers,

Please, first, I apologize if I'm not seeking stories of the 8-seater wood panel fits-drywall-inside wagons...
Those where BIG.

Just curious what where you able to fit or carry in your wagon/hatchback vehicle/car.

Let me start:
-in my mazda5, I was able to fit (both back-rows down) tools and various supplies, pieces of furniture in the same volume that it took me 2-3 transports using my Yaris sedan

I put a full sized couch a time or two in the back of my Jeep Cherokee (XJ).

It's a lifted station wagon. Compact SUV.

I once put a wheelbarrow in my CX5, as well as a small dresser. Not too bad. I also put a jackhammer on a dolly into my 2010 Mazda 3 sedan.

I have moved recliners with an Accord/335. I have also done 8' pieces of lumber in my G37S coupe.

I renovated a house with an Accord/TSX/G37S coupe. So basically whatever it took there.

The suspension on my 335i is quite stout. It is basically the M Sport suspension and will carry anything you can fit in the car/trunk without showing any loading issues at all.

Ironically, the time spent with the F150 was quite tame compared to what I did with my cars. In the future, I will either pay for delivery on cubic yards of soil and mulch if I can't find a truck to borrow. This assumes buying in bulk. If it is bagged, I will simply load what fits in the car and do a few trips. Working by the car load keeps from overloading the old body around the house.

In my old S-15 Jimmy (compact 2-door SUV/lifted wagon) I carried a chest-on-chest from my sister's place to my parent's. Had to remove the interior-mounted spare tire and put it on the passenger seat for the ride, but that thing literally fit like a glove inside the cargo area and I was able to close the glass-hatch as well.

"Fit" is a generous word, but I frequently transported a kayak shoved into the back of my Subaru wagon when the roof racks were full a few years back.

2005 ( smaller) Rav-4 with the tire outside hanging on the gate-swing door giving it a low flat floor.

Put a super-capacity dryer still in the box in the back with the rear seat folded - piece of cake!

You cant do this with the spare under the floor.

the Wife use to put a hard shell kayak in the Forester last season. She HATES putting the Kayak on the ( no very inventive) THULE carrier on the jacked Impreza wagon (AKA: Crosstrek XV)

Does my Sedona count? If so, I fit an entire sectional couch in the back with the 2nd and 3rd row seats pulled out/folded into the floor. It was a big sectional too. When it comes to an all-around practical vehicle, it's hard to beat a minivan. It's just a big station wagon, after all. Who doesn't love that? smile

YES!! And they can be found cheap!!

A local salvage yard makes "Mini flatbed" trucks from old minivans to run a round the wrecking yard with. I'd like to find a cheap one to do the same as a little farm truck flatbed for my ranch.

May I recommend the pictures posts from GreeCGuy? He had an old van run as a citrus farm implement (redneck fuel tank, tree branches lift/carry, no windshield, etc etc)

a couple years back we fit around 40bags of mulch in the back of the vibe,rear seats folded down.

were we worried about overloading the suspension? not really the struts have been blown for years.
and we weren't even driving that load a mile back to the house.
