    I re-post this for info too:
    To those new to this thread, to find out about a specific vehicle, go to near the top of this web page (on the right hand side).
    Locate the search engine called "Find in Topic". It's about 4-inches from the top of this page.
    In the box "Posts Containing Key Word(s)", enter the vehicle you are interested in...and hit enter
    You will be rewarded... I hope.

    I re-post this occasionally for information as people sometimes don't want to read through pages and pages of posts:
    The space needed for most pinball games is about 31 inches. My 2012 Grand Cherokee has 30.75" clearance and a Stern Spiderman just fits...probably an 1/8" clearance if I remember correctly.
    The issue with the 31" measurement is the lip at the bottom of the opening. In my Jeep, the lip is about 1/4" above the floor, but in some vehicles it can be an inch high.
    What makes this measurement tricky is that the lip is usually not directly below the opening edge at the top. So measuring at an angle (lip to top) gives a deceiving number, that is this measurement is larger than the actual opening.
    If it's important to be able to put a pinball in the back and the opening is about 31", some consideration needs to be taken in the height of the lip above the floor and where the lip is in relation to the opening edge at the top.
    Remember that the pinball game needs to ride on the lip while it slides into the back, and it only drops down to floor level after it passes the lip. In my experience, it's the last 2 or 3 inches of sliding the game in when the game is still on the lip and the head is starting to approach the opening edge at the top.

    Just checking if there are any noticeable size differences between a Williams system 6/7 and system 11.
    I fit a Black Knight last week and I have a lengthy drive this week to a High Speed. BK was a snug fit in my Jeep. Just looking for piece of mind that High Speed will fine as well.

    Which jeep?

    I forgot, does HS head fold or remove?

    It folds just like all (?) system 11s (I put the question mark because there may be some early Sys 11 that doesn't fold but certainly the vast majority do) which means you'll need to have more clearance at the hatch. If BK was a tight fit I'd suggest you either carefully measure the hatch opening and / or be prepared to take the head off the game and remember that not all connections from the back-box to the playfield may be connectors. When I had to pull the head off an F14 to get it through a door there were one or two things that made it take longer than I expected but I don't remember exactly what they were.

    Quoted from FatPanda:

    Anyone fit 2 EMs in their SUV? Mine is a 2018 Pathfinder and I'll be picking up a Wedgehead and a 70s Williams single player. I figured if I load teh cabinets on their sides, the cabinets would fit, and the heads would either go in the front pass. seat or right behind the front seats.

    Yes, they do fit.

    Quoted from AUKraut:

    Anyone have any pin hauling experience with the new 2019-2020 Hyundai Santa Fe?

    Happen to get an answer on this?

    We're shopping Santa Fe's right now and the lowest vertical clearance is much lower than our current Honda HRV. The HRV can **almost** fit a Stern Premium in the box, but not quite. No problem unboxed.

    I don't think the Santa Fe can handle the height at the hatch, which is the lowest point....but the wife wouldn't let me bring the pinball machine out to the lot to test

    I ended up asking in a FB Hyundai Santa Fe group, where several confirmed and measure that a 32" high box should fit. Actually ended up passing on the Santa Fe myself and ended up buying a 2020 RAV4 Hybrid.

    Did she prohibit you from bringing a tape measure?

    Honestly, in a situation like this a tape measure always makes does me the dirty (or rather, I'm too much of a dumbass to think ahead about measuring).
