A long time ago, I had a Town and Country. You could put a 4x8 sheet of plywood flat behind the front seats. Had to remove center and rear seats, as this was before the fold-down era.

It is nice. I keep a towel in the trunk that I throw over the center console when I load longer pieces of lumber.

I used to put 2x4x10's in my Outback. Crosswise from back to up on the dash. Towel over dash/windshield. Since HD is only 2 miles from my house, it was a quick trip that worked in a pinch.

I used to do that in Forester until the day I wasn't paying attention with 10 foot pieces of pvc pipe. I closed the back and *pop*, cracked the windshield with the very tip of the pipe.

You mean there's something else worthwhile for free other than the AA batteries or 4-pack microfibers? :D

Yes, you can put them down the centerline between captains chairs, too...just protect the top of the center armrest and understand that a panic stop could send the material through the center stack. I'll put the material in if it's only a stick or two and I'm in a hurry, but I prefer to use my utility trailer for material pickup beyond that.

Nice to know how easy they fit. Definitely another reason to love this car. So far the most I've tested it was a Costco trip before Thanksgiving where I was able to fit a folding table, 6 folding chairs, and 2 full shopping carts full of groceries in the back, and still had room for my wife and I, our toddler, and one of our teens. I absolutely LOVE the size of this vehicle, it's plenty big without being TOO big.

I wish I had taken pics. I transported a handful of 20’, ¾” cpvc pipes with my Ascent a couple weeks ago.
disclaimer: I cut them in half and tied them to the roof rack 😂
but I’m moving soon so I’ll be transporting all kinds of things inside the Ascent soon including a trampoline that I intend to disassemble as little as possible.
