NO SMOKING IN THE CAR.
No dairy products (ice cream, yogurt, etc.) allowed in the car. Spills smell forever and you pay for cleanup.
Pets are OK as long as no one can tell they were ever there when the trip is over.
It looks like an SUV but it is really a crossover. It can go up a gravel driveway and park on somebody's lawn but it DOES NOT go off road. It is not designed for that. Up side - very comfortable ride on the highway. I've driven 640 miles in a day without any back problems.
Need more space? Rent the cavernous Yakima Skybox-18. Eighteen cubic feet of extra space. Exterior 92" by 34.5" by 15.5". Locks and opens from either side. Holds up to 120 pounds of evenly distributed weight:
Skis (up to 210 cm), snowboards, helmets and boots? YES.
Sleeping bags, tents, and backpacks? YES
Folding chairs, pool toys, towels and sandals? YES
Cases of bottled water and big coolers full of ice? NO - TOO HEAVY - THOSE GO INSIDE
Luggage? Depends on how heavy it is.
I've had no problems but it's not guaranteed waterproof. Put clothing/towels/sleeping bags in trash bags on long, rainy trips.
WARNING - with the SkyBox-18 the vehicle is 7' 2" tall and will not fit in all parking garages. You breaka da box you buya da box.
WARNING - for safety the person loading and unloading the box should be in rubber soled shoes, not ski boots or leather soled shoes or anything slippery.
