    I'm thinking about picking up one of the two and pinball transport is a must, does anyone know?

    Thx

    I don't think a pin will fit in a CR-V. The tailgate opening is too small.

    Tailgate in the crv is big enough, but the seats don't lay totally flat so it ends up not being tall enough. At least that was the case with my 1997. I traded it in for a truck, partially to have an easier time moving pins.

    We looked at the new honda pilots too, but they did the same thing with the seats. They don't lay flat so floor to ceiling is less than 30". We shopped a lot of cars and SUVs and many of them have a funny storage space layout, so take a tape measure with you. I used the approximate measurements of, 30"x30"x54". Some pins vary a little, but that is a good average when moving Bally, Williams or data east pins.

    I've owned a few trucks. Best car I've ever owned for hauling pins is the honda element. Low loading tailgate, flat floor.

    It fit in Mazda 5 but i was wondering if it fit in the KIA Sportage 2011?

    I have an Element. Extremely versatile vehicle, perfect for hauling a pin.

    I know one won't fit in my Jeep Patriot, unless I take off the head and jam it in beside the main cabinet. I got my hyperball in but new pins that fold won't fit.

    Toyota 4 runner? I was wondering if a pin would fit in my vehicle.

    It would be interesting to build a sticky tread with these infos.

    Williams Fish Tales in the back of a 2015 Honda CRV.

    Quoted from tatman9999:

    It will fit in a MDX.

    Perhaps they've changed the design, as I couldn't get a LOTR into the back of an MDX last year. There is a curved inner opening at the tailgate, and because of the curve (which is purely aesthetic), the top corners of the pin won't fit.

    I have hauled a Gottlieb system 3 (LCA) in a 2012 Honda CRV

    It will not fit in a newer MDX. Not sure which year, maybe 2015+, but when it was redesigned, the opening was too short to fit a pin. Too bad, nice suv otherwise.

    That's a bummer! I had an 01 and could fit a pin with room to spare. Got rid of it a few years back but it was one of my favorite vehicles ever and was recently thinking about new ones maybe.

    Buy a Honda pilot, just as reliable and nice inside. I drive an 05 RL so am very familiar with Acura, the pilot is a nice suv and gets great gas mileage in eco mode for an SUV. 28hwy, 18-23 in suburbia. We bought a 2016 pilot in March and love it.
