What do you haul in your hatch?

Hey y'all. I am a new focus owner. I have been a long time honda driver but the civic being no longer available in a hatch has sent me looking for other alternatives. That being said, here is a picture illustrating my need for a hatch. Feel free to post your own.

There was a member awhile back that used his hatchback to haul just about everything including a 4 wheeler in the back. I just tried to search for it, but haven't found that thread yet.

Recently went on a road trip and was able to keep everything in the back and just kept a couple coats in the back seats. The big thing that trumps the sedan's trunk is you can access the cooler without having to remove it.



The first thing I hauled was my OEM wheels and tires when I got my aftermarket ones installed then it's hauled full size dog crate,60" flatscreen and a couple of guitars and amps for a friend. It was the main reason I wanted a hatch plus it looks sportier.

Boxes, with some of them having some kind of stuff in them.



Exciting, eh?

anything and everything. Ive had leaf springs for my truck in there



Ive stuffed 4 32" tall Truck tires in it







on a day to day basis i carry a spare, tire iron, jack, ammo box full of wrenches and small tools, a case of sockets, and a breaker bar.

those items (aside from spare) go in whatever vehicle im driving. switch between truck and car.
