Rear Storage

Post by Darkwolf » Mon Dec 04, 2017 1:06 am

Hello,

New owner in Canada. Just picked mine up the other day. I love it, however, in transferring things over from my old vehicle I found there seems to be a lack of rear storage. I have the tow package, but I don't keep the hitch in unless towing or I would destroy my shins. None of the compartments in the back have enough room for a tow hitch or much in the way of tools. I was looking at the large cavity in the rear wall on the drivers side, which shouldn't interfere with the third row seats. Has anyone come up with a solution that fits that cavity? What do the rest of you do for tools, tie downs, etc.?

Thanks!

I keep all my junk under the flap in the boot floor. Where the screw mechanism is for lowering the spare wheel.

Mine has a bunch of styrofoam in there, a funnel and some stuff already, so there is very little room to put anything else in, definitely not a trailer hitch.

Thanks!

No foam in mine. Funnel was in glove box. Under the flap in the boot is just a cavity. Too small for much stuff TBH.

I have the styrofoam insert too, but there's nothing in it. It looks very specific to certain items, so would you mind taking a picture of what you have.

I'm in the US and have the tow-package - and yes, the 'boot' is smaller than I expected.

Thanks.

Here is a pic of mine. Yes, it clearly looks like it's meant to hold specific things, but aside from the socket and the funnel, no specific things were there. There appears to be a spot for a hitch ball on the right, but not the whole hitch assembly.

After seeing the above picture i thought i would have a look mine again. It seems the little cubby hole had grown in my mind.😯😯
I could have sworn it was bigger i thought i had a tool bag and other things in there. Turns out i only had the other things no room for the tool bag.😉😉
