I wonder how much rear side space has been lost to plastic covers as a compromise to get the cover to fit 3 different positions.

Only thing about the brolley being stored on the cover (yes it fits it perfectly) is that it can/does slide as you go round corners.......just watch for the metal end marking the D post interior trim Whistle

Like the cargo net idea. Might be a reason to get one.

. . . . And there are a pair of slots, so that when the cover is fitted right behind second row seats you can open it half way. Presumably because, if it goes all the way back and you are under 5'6" in height, you can't reach far enough in to bring it back.

My Top Tip Idea

With the bungee net secured to the anchor points,
you can pull the Load Cover down vertically.
Secure the ends in each anchor point [tensioned by bungee net] behind the rear seats.
This gives you hidden storage accessed behind the rear seats.
So from the outside your boot looks empty.

When staying away, I don't like leaving the Load Cover closed as I've had a few break-ins where scum think I'm carrying stuff in my boot.
I use this method with items that are not that expensive [but scum don't know that] as I don't want to lug everything from my boot up to the room.

I also lay an orange card on the boot floor stating "It's Empty"
So far so good Thumbs Up


OK here's a few pics just taken.

Pulled down vertically and ends located in anchor points [using bungee net]
Once the tailgate is closed you won't really see the cover esp when it's dark.



The hidden storage space accessed from behind the rear seats.


btw, this wasn't a hand me down tip, but discovered this myself Wink

Don't forget the space under the third row seats for storage too. Prob not big enough for full size laptop but big enough for handbags/cameras etc.

Also, the groove on top is the perfect place to store an umbrella, without it rolling all over the boot space Thumbs Up

Edit......

Like this -



Thanks for the tip. Would never have thought it would stay in place but it does (same umbrella).

Lots of space under the second row with a 40/60 configuration (bottom part folds first, then seat backs). I have: fire extinguisher, tow strap, Land Rover gear tool box, own tool bag, collapsable shovel, BAS box.

Here is another option. Cargo net at a 45 degree angle and loadspace carrier pulled out to halfway.

It keeps small cargo from sliding around.

There are two cutouts in the plastic on the sides of the cargo area just below the catches for the loadspace cover.

I'm not sure what the cutouts are designed for, but the hooks from the net seem to attach securely.

Those cut outs ? ..... that's the rear curry hooks.

Just tried cargo net there, and all is well.
