I'm new to the forum and hope to soon purchase my first Subaru! I intend on doing an extensive road trip with it next summer and am looking for opinions on which year (2009 or 2010) would be better suited for sleeping in and supporting a cargo box and canoe on top. I've been looking into the 2010 model for quite some time now and like the size of it but have been turned slightly towards the 2009 because of some forum posts and reviews. I plan on folding the back seats down and using the cargo space for where I sleep. Which would be better for long continuous drives? Interior comfort? Any input is appreciated about either models! Thanks for your time and hope to own my first outback soon!
