Hi

Between 2 repairs (spark plug wire, abs light, awd light, fuel sensor, transmission rebuilt…) I'm slowly preparing for camping with the Aztek.  I don't like the factory rear cargo.  It take a lot of space but hold almost nothing. It need to be taken out to use the matress.  Then you end up with no space for bagage.
I bought some wood and try to build something that can hold a camping stove, the spare tire, a bike helmet, etc. It need to be easy to remove and reinstall, doesn't take a lot of space when not in use, fit behind the rear seat, and allow the matress on top as is.  Here is the result. 

The text is in french and I don't speak loud, but everything is already written here !

And you, how do you bring all your stuff when you do camping?

Hi Pascal77,
   nice job. I was just wondering why you put the spare tire inside when it normally hangs under the rear of the car? Are you bringing an extra one? Also, it looks like you didn't screw or fasten the different sections of wood together - does it get noisy when you are driving? Please update after you go camping. Thanks, sincerely

I bought the Aztek with the spare inside. Previous owner said the salt (I live in Québec) cause problem underneath.

The rear section is almost an exact fit (there is about 0.25" free). I want to add something to tighten it with the side walls but it is almost already unmovable once the plywood is inserted.

The front section is free to move in the remaining space and can fly in case of an accident.  I'm looking for a way to hold it in the rear seat hole on the floor. This section make some noise and is dangerous.  It should be okay next week!
