i do love my car....but it is not the greatest car for a camping trip....


convertibles have teeny trunks...most of the boot space is taken up by the top. I'd say you can fit two small golfbags in there. It's average width, but the height is minimal...so nothing big fits, as you can't slide it all the way back.
And two doors make it hard to get anything biggish in the back. You can take down the top and the windows, and heave stuff in, but nothing too heavy, 'cause you've got to get it out again. And I don't like to leave too much stuff in the back because the canvas top makes it easier to break into than a regular car.
Plus, there's the "flyaway factor"....something every convertible owner learns about early. I've gotten off pretty lucky--- only losing a couple of hats and (lots of) receipts. But you'd be amazed at how many things you'd think were too large, or too heavy, obtain lift off.
