Usually i'm hanging out on the C3 forum (and in Australia).
I'm a big Vette fan and my latest plan is to drive a C6 from LA to Chicago along Route 66. Or vice versa.
How much luggage room is there in a C6 ?
I'm guessing not much...
Recently drove a lap around Hawaii in 2013 Camaro (only because I couldn't get a Vette on the day). Nice drive & plenty of luggage room.
Without being able to pop down to the dealer and check it out, can you guys give me a bit of an idea on interior luggage space. There will be 2 of us.
More room in there than you might expect. I've rented Vette convertibles a lot on vacations and my wife and I have fit a medium suitcase, a small roll-on weekender and a garment bag in the trunk area, takes some creative loading, but it works. My personal Vette is a coupe and there's a lot more space in the coupe, if you pack effectively.
A couple weekends ago, a buddy and I took a weekend trip. We each had the largest size bag you can use for airline-carry-on, each had a gun case (for long guns), each had a shooting bag. A couple flats of ammo. Plus miscellaneous laptop bags, jackets, etc. All fit fine.
Location: Currently somewhere in IL,IN,KY,TN,MS,AL, or FL
I measured my couple for loading a LARGE box. You can easily fit a box 37"x42"x11". That is just under 10 cubic feet. That is less than half the usable space because it only considers a 6 sided box. Smaller items fit in the irregular shapes around the wheel wells and under the sloping hatch, etc. For reference, a Cadillac CTS has at most 13.9 cubic feet. The secret to using all the space is soft luggage.
Yes, there is a weight limit of a little less than 1/4 ton but I don't recall anyone every having an issue. Besides, you're renting and not expected to know about things like weight limits.
Couple of years ago wife and I took a week long trip to Pennsylvania which was to include 2 days at Carlisle for the Corvette show, we packed for an entire week. At the show, a guy had 2 front OEM rims for sale, I bought them as one of my rims had curb rash. They came in original boxes. My plan was to pack carefully when going home, putting stuff inside the rim boxes and around the rims. Well, Hurricane Irene hit and we had to get out of the hotel and home fast, within an hour, so I didn't have time to pack carefully. We were able to fit all we packed (a weeks worth of clothes), the 2 rims in the boxes plus some souvenirs from the show into the back of our C6. I couldn't see out the rear window too well but we still made it home safe and sound. I'm sure you'll have plenty of room....
My wife I took a trip to Florida and easily had 1 weeks worth of clothing. This consisted of 2 large suitcases, 2 small to medium duffle bags and several small bags plus a 17" laptop. This was in a vert using the full trunk space including compartment where top goes into. The coupe should easily have enough room. This is one of the main reasons I wanted a Vette. I wanted a car which I could have room for luggage if & when I went to the beach or on vacation. My Corvette has exceeded my expectations in every way.
