There are so many stories about what I have hauled in my 12 Subaru's, here is one or two. In my first 79 DL station wagon, I took out the front passenger seat an put in 75 2x4's. I had a distinct list to the right... but I drove slowly for ~10 miles.
On another occasion in the same car, four people, a large Irish setter and enough camping equipment for a week, we drove for 12 hours to Okracoke island. There was a back pack or two strapped to a bike rack on the back.
On the highway I would get the mid to high 30 mpg's. I sure miss that now with my 2000 OBW. Yes, it is safer, quieter, more stable at high speeds, etc., but I sure wish Subaru would make a more fuel efficient car.
In the 2000 OBW, I have fashioned an easily removable cardboard liner for the back and regularly fill it to the brim with firewood in the winter.
My wife and I haul her harpsichord to gigs. 'Fridges, washing and drying machines. People are constantly amazed what I have fit in my Subaru's over the years. The Justy couldn't fit that much, but I would put a roof rack on and stack it up...
