If I fits, I sits - what did you fit in your hatch today?

Found myself purchasing a wardrobe (Pax) at IKEA to turn my 4 bedroom home into a 5 bedroom home in preparation for a house sale (thank you Oregon for your lenient "what constitutes a bedroom" codes!).

Saw the box (80" long) and pondered: would it fit?

Compelled by the fact that home delivery was $79, I figured I'd try.

The result? #winning.

I don't like how "hatches" look, but I will admit they are handy.

While I had my hatch "wish they made an Si hatch" I made many Lowe's runs and was constantly impressed. Some of the most memorable was the 10ft gutters that fit from the passenger floor to the back hatch window, 10x 50lb bags of gravel "with minimal suspension drop" and on top of the gravel was bubble wrap, packing boxes, a new dolly and various other supplies.

I never had to use our Rav4 instead of the hatch for anything I needed in my time of ownership. Had the trunk tray and laid a towel over the back seats when folded down.

Hatch is great as a hauler. Was going to buy the Touring Sedan but ended up getting the EX Hatch (Sport Touring wasn't released yet) after being convinced to go for the hatch. Everyone seemed to like the look of the hatch much more and my uncle/boss convinced me after reminding me how much of a pain it was dealing with all my tools at the beginning/end of the work week. I do Lyft/Uber on the side and people are very impressed by how much room there is inside of the newer Civics. The craziest I've done so far were 4 balikbayan boxes, 3 big luggages and 5 hand carries and 1 passenger with great ground/shock clearance and 35mpg from the East Bay to SFO.

Well, slightly unrelated-but in the event anyone in Oregon has heard that you need a closet for a room to be considered a bedroom...I called the City of Hillsboro (about 20 min west of Portland) and they follow the ICC (International Code Council) codes, which actually do not require a closet.

The window must meet egress requirements, the room needs a fire alarm, and must be in close proximity to a CO2 detector. That's it!

So back to IKEA the closet goes. Again-sorry a bit off-topic, but I've heard the closet thing now from several agents, so I'm guessing I'm not the only one.

@batman900 - Fortunately for my pocketbook, they don't make a hatch SI :cool:
@MikeJXWT - Holy cow that's alotta luggage for 1 passenger!!!!

Purchased a 3 seater swing from Walmart. I think carrying rope or bungee cords should be a must on all hatchback owners. In case you must travel with hatch open. I like the load floor on the hatchback is almost flat makes loading items easier and fit well.

Floor to roof, hatch to passenger side, and then some on the roof rack moving cross country.

Car was eventually stolen and wrecked in 2017... |-(
RIP 2000 Honda Civic Hatch.

Thanks. I finally found out how... Discovered that Front seat cam lay back to almost horizontal position.
This helped me too. I took some Ikea shelves system, with length of 2,350 (metric)

I wish I'd taken a picture of my Si's trunk last weekend. I fit luggage for my family of four (two teenage daughters, no less) in the back, plus a bunch of other crap we didn't need to take. The last things to go in were everybody's memory foam pillows, which by the end of the trip were conformed to the shape of the outside of the trunk, lol.
