Hauling with the Outback
Posted 19 August 2003 - 11:17 PM
Yesterday I hauled a 13 cubic ft. upright freezer in the back of the wagon. I put the seats down and I bungee corded the hatch closed. If it would have been 6in shorter I could have closed the hatch. only about a half inch of clearance through the hatch entrance but once it came through, there was lots of room.
I wanted to take pics but camera was unavailable yesterday.
What has anyone else hauled In the subie that seemed more than it could handle?
whats the most people to ever fit in one? (like the old VW bug)

2 large coolers filled with ice, meats, veggies & dairy
4 of us
1 military surplus canvas pole tent ~ 12x20 ft
as much gear as we could stuff.
AND, there was no road or trail to our "campsite." hello winding up 4x4 in first gear.
note: paintball paint when not promptly removed, leaves a STAIN. After they fiinished with my white car, it looked like we'd hit a deer--- nasty stares driving home.
Legacy: y'all got me beat-- but...
2 keyboard PA speakers
1 keyboard in case
2 12U gig racks
2 crates of cable
miscellaneous recording gear
1 pole-type keyboard stand (collapsed)
1 box of mics and mic stands
cottonballs (for my ears)
1 roll of carpet 3x10
1 roll of rolaids (they wanted me to sing one and I was nervous)

After I got home I had to pull my buddies C-10 Chevy home after it broke down. It was only a mile, but the truck out wieghs the Soob two and a half times. That car was the greatest rusty piece of crap I ever owned.
My '96 Impreza 2.2 pulled a 2000 pound, 16ft. Bobcat trailer (empty). The car would still go 70mph in 5th gear, and performed well, but I would have liked some more brakes!
Both cars were 5 speeds, and the '87 was a dual-range.

My brother claims to have had 14 people in an 87 wagon before.

Once, a full size fridge + luggage and gear for two... and the rear hatch closed, but not an inch to spare.
On another occasion, a full size ceramic top stove. Still could close the hatch.
Finally 1,000 pounds of sheep manure... in sealed bags + two persons.
Rear suspension was a little low but still could go up long and steep hills fast in fourth.
