Planning a Florida Trip, need trunk size help

Hello everybody!

Yes, I am in fact completely new to the forums, and no, I don't (yet) own a Camaro. Shame on me.

I do however know how to use the Search feature but alas, it didn't help me in finding a good answer. (I've searched both the site and googled for about 3 hours so far and never found all answers).

So what's my question ? - Me and my wife are planning another Florida vacation in June and last year we rented a <something else we shouldn't mention in here> Convertible and this year I want to rent a Camaro (Coupe or Convertible). They're a little more expensive but it feels like if nothing else, it should be a blast driving one.

So my question is : What can we fit in the trunk?

I have found some measurements from people on the forums (although MerlinZero's "uh.... 1 set of golf clubs... or three small children..." isn't quite specific enough for our taste and I saw the picture of the couple that jumped into the trunk and it feels like 3 children... ? Should fit 4!).

There is also mention of HeatherR's pictures but I haven't been able to find the right thread to see them. (Yes I looked at her profile). I tried searching for all posts by HeatherR with the word "trunk" in them to no avail.

Is the trunk opening of the vert the same as the coupe ? 30" at the rear of the car and 26.5" at the front of the car?

How large is the trunk itself in the Coupe?

How large is the trunk itself in the Vert? Top up? Top down?

Is there a difference between the LT and the SS?

I will modify what I bring according to the size of the trunk but last year we had two large suitcases in the <other thing> and we could only fit one in the trunk of it. I'd like to fit them both somehow if possible, even if it means putting them in through the car and not through the trunk opening. And.. can you still do that in the vert? Or is that only the Coupe?

Anyone feel like helping me out? (Also count the wheel well if you give me inside dimensions please).

Thanx!

EDIT: Here's what I've found so far.
WARNING: The numbers are not guaranteed to be exact.
Code:
Trunk Opening:

Width	Rear Edge:	26.5"	67cm
	Front Edge:	30"	76cm
	Max:		33"	83cm

Length (Front>Back):	16"	40cm

Depth (Up>Down):	16.5"	42cm

Inside Trunk:

Width	Max:		53"	134cm
	Wheel wells:	47"	119cm

Length	Normal:		44"	111cm
	Folded Seats:	68"	172cm

Rear seat to trunk opening:

Width:			38"	96cm

Depth (Up>Down):	11"	28cm

Now, this is for the coupe. If it's you and the wife only, the backseat will lay down as well. But with the seat up I've fit 3 decent sized overnight bags, 3 folding chairs, detail supplies, camera, laptop and an extra shoe bag. Golf clubs I can't answer for.

Actually I did and volume doesn't actually say much. My luggage cares abut XxYxZ. And can you get to the trunk through the back seat in the vert?

Talking

I went to Sams club and bought a full shopping cart of stuff, not realizing I no longer have an Avalanche..........managed to get it ALL in the trunk AND get the trunk lid to shut without having to jump up and down on it.

I fit my entire life into the car one time. I'm talking full scale I moved. Everything was full of stuff (including the passenger seat) but it fit! There is plenty of space in there if you are creative

I had one rather large suitcase, two big travel bags, cleaning supplies, uniforms, a king size pillow in the trunk ( took a two month school vacation to Pensacola last year), and on the way back I added my daughters large travel bag, food and a cooler..oh those went in the back seat.... ( added two trophies to the trunk plus more clothes).. does that help?

The seat does not fold down on the 'vert. And remember you lose trunk space with the top down. .

Sure does and is very appreciated.

Now if I could get a comparison to the vert I'd be set.

I was afraid of that. Hmmm. The question is if there's a way to squeeze in two largeish suitcases in there AND be able to have the top down at the same time or if I'm SOL already on trying to get the two suitcases in.

I put a garment bag under the convertible "shade" in the trunk and fit a standard roll-a-board vertically at the back of the trunk (front of the trunk? anyway, right inside the opening, closest to the license plate).

You could always put a bag in the back seat and one in the trunk when you have the top down I was going to go that route but managed to squeeze the two bags we had in as described above. If you are talking about full size (max dimension) bags, you can fit one in the trunk, but the top will not be able to go down.... and a 2nd one would probably not fit other than in the back seat.

Good choice of rentals by the way

No way your getting 2 large suitcases in the trunk. The height won't allow it and not large enough side to side. Maybe 1 large and 1 medium bag that can be flexible. In a vert forget it. Get a coupe so you can at least drop the seat down to get larger items into the trunk.

Ok .. After a few more hours of information gathering I've come to the following data on the Coupe. The Vert is still a mystery though.

Posting what I've found so that others that search may find it informative (or not, up to them I guess).

WARNING: The numbers are not guaranteed to be exact.

Code:
Trunk Opening:

Width	Rear Edge:	26.5"	67cm
	Front Edge:	30"	76cm
	Max:		33"	83cm

Length (Front>Back):	16"	40cm

Depth (Up>Down):	16.5"	42cm

Inside Trunk:

Width	Max:		53"	134cm
	Wheel wells:	47"	119cm

Length	Normal:		44"	111cm
	Folded Seats:	68"	172cm

Rear seat to trunk opening:

Width:			38"	96cm

Depth (Up>Down):	11"	28cm
Now if anyone here happens to come across a vert with the trunk open and have something to measure with with them - feel free to share. I'll put it in the OP later so that people can find it easily.
