These are not the best pictures because it was dark inside my work, and when I arrived at destination I was so eager to unload I forgot to take a few more pictures. The main long load is a 6ft long and 2ft wide cylinder for a coffee roaster. The choice was use the Kadjar for the 300 mile round trip, or use the works hateful dogged van which would have driven me insane. So it had to fit. First problem, I was expecting the front passenger seat to do the tabletop mode - but it either doesn't or I am too stupid to make it do it. Looking at my Signature nav front seats they have lifted edges on both the base and back so I could not see how it could even tabletop if I could find the way to do it. BUT, if you remove the passenger seat headrest and move the seat fully forward and then tilt it backwards into full on chillax recline - it actually is not very much higher then the folded down back seats - result. Plenty of cardboard to protect the car then just slid the tube up and over the front seat reclined lip. Slight issue the tube has a sticking out bit where it connects - which when upwards was catching the glass roof so I had to rotate it into the potentially attacking me while driving side position. Stopped it wandering using strapping hooked to front and rear passenger hand holds. At the back stopped it moving backwards with a couple of beefy motors in boxes. Also tied it to the two rear luggage hooks left an right. It didn't even slide a mm during the 150 mile trip to deliver it - although nearly all that was motorway. 6ft long load fitted in the Kadjar done, it can be an impressive and luxurious van if needed. Added bonus, clocked an average 65mpg on the trip up (set off at 6am so clear motorways and slip streamed a Mercedes Sprinter doing 69mph for a good 90 miles)
