My mom bought a small desk last week, and I can now confirm from experience that a box measuring 48"x24"x30" will fit inside the caliber with the rear seats folded down, and the hatch will close completely with about an inch between the box and the rear glass.
so today on my only day off in the wonderfully warm day of 27degrees, i had to move three industrial sized refridgerators for my friend's restaurant. i did put some of the stuff in my 50CAL and so here is the pic... it's with my crappy cell phone so don't bawk too much at the quality please
there was a 2-4 of moosehead in there, but that somehow disappeared...
Last friday I took 7 bags of packing blankets, a 60" x 18" refridgerator dolly, and my six foot tall little brother who isn't quite 16 yet to Houston, MO three hours south of here. We left most of the packing blankets with our customer, but brought back to Columbia a grandfather clock that was 7'6" x 24" x 16". Once again I was an idiot and forgot to take pictures. My leggy little brother sat behind me on the way home and we both had plenty of room. Trips like these are the reason I bought this car, and it's proven itself very well.
Couldn't fit my grand-daughters stroller into the back without folding the 1/3rd seatback down, top of the line Evenflow model, quite bulky. Also I have to move the front seats forward to clear the rear facing car seat, again bigger than normal. Going to have to drive the kid around in the old E 320 where every thing fits. Other than that, no problems. 5 weeks old. Granddaughter, Arianna, 4 weeks old.
