The oddest load in your 'Baru

What is the weirdest load you have ever had in your Subaru? I have had many:

8' x 2' lattice pieces (with the hatch closed)
Two separate 750# loads of landscaping edging!

Just a couple that I could think of. Brian


If you can't see into the future, you aren't driving fast enough

Do rooftop loads count? I"ve had a picnic table up there.

I consistently have it full, front to rear w/back seats folded flat, with amps and speakers and guitars for my band. He drives like a champ when he is weighed down that much, but my terrible rear shocks don't appreciate it.

I can't particularly think of anything "odd" that I've carried though.

Talking

I am new to the board. I am an avid Subaru owner and am constantly showing what my Subie can do. My '02 OB so far has brought home a washer, dryer, hot water heater, and lumber for home projects. My '96 OB was used at one time for delivering telephone books, sheesh, they weigh a ton! So the phone books are the weirdest of loads for me.

'90 5spd Legacy (thinks he's a WRC) sedan w/ shiny alum. brackets pulley, and muggified.

Yep, I've had a dryer in the back, also fencing materials on the roof.

I haven't carried anything "unusual", just my cricket equipment, r/c car equipment, a new clothes dryer and half a dozen boxes full of ceramic bathroom tiles.

I hauled my old couch to the dump,with the tailgate down it stuck out another 2 feet.It drew some attention since the couch was around 7 to 8 foot long hanging out the back of my Baja.

Well, cricket equipment will be quite odd here in the US!

Hehe ! You'd be surprised, from what I hear cricket is popular in some colleges in the USA. And the Canucks play cricket too, even though their World Cup team is made up of ex-pat aussies and poms.....Canada also holds the record for the lowest World Cup Cricket score as well !
