No room in an Astra estate???

what the hell are you carrying?

put the childseat on the "40" side, fold down the "60" side and you'd get a couple of 90's, fieldbox,fuel, lawnchairs,a case of beer and a kitchen sink in one of those!

It's a European car, made by Opel. Opel is like the European Chevy.

Hmm, one for us Europeans to consider me thinks!

I used to get a Concept 30 and an Xcell 60 in the back of a Mk 2 Golf GTI, together with the flight box and all the other bits and pieces! An Astra estate (station wagon for our cousins) should be a breeze!

Current ride is a 2005 Mazda 6 TS. All fits in the back....

I could fit two Rappy 50's in the back of my last car - a BMW Mini Cooper S, but that's with both the back seats down. I've not got a new Saab 93 Sports Saloon and with the 60/40 split I can drop the 40 and slot my 50 & 90 in (facing forwards) fill the boot with picnic table, fuel, Tx case & field toolbox and still seat 3 passengers in comfort.

My parents have just got a VW Touran (similar to the Vauxhall Zafira) and I recon that'll be great as a heli hauler. I still think your Astra is more than enough.

Or are you using this as an excuse to get a new charriot

My friend has a L200 Kingcab with a secure cover over the pickup area and that carries umpteen helis only issue is the two flights of stairs to get anywhere near it as he's running 22" rims

I also have a Toyota Avensis. Great value for money, nice and smooth, enough room for a fleet of helicopters, and so....much.....personality. I like the joke about the bloke who bought an Avensis, only to get home and find he had one already

BMW 320d Touring or a Mercedes 220CDi Touring

Both cars have enough room for a couple of helis, flightbox and still take 5 passengers.

A limo is always more complicated as you can't fit the heli in the trunk because of height and putting it on the back seat is a bummer at the end of the day.
