And with the front passenger and rear seats folded down I can fit a 10' lenght of pipe in the car and close the trunk!
It amazes me how many tradesmen don't understand this. Most carpenters drive a pickup so they can haul materials and that works just fine if they are the contractor. While working for someone else, I figure the company can arrange the hauling of materials. I will haul stuff if needed and if it fits in the car and as you pointed out, it's surprising what does fit! In fact, there is a twelve foot folding ladder in the back seat right now, among other things.
