According to Alex on Autos YouTube review, the passenger model will not take 4 x 8 sheets of plywood. This is because of a ventilation duct bulge near the rear door. This would be a deal killer for me. I have to carry plywood occasionally. Anyone experience this?

I just went out and measured my passenger Metris. Narrowest point on the floor is 47 1/4 inches. The ventilation tunnel is less than 6 inches high. Above that the van widens to over 49 inches. So find a way to elevate the plywood sheets above that height and you're good to go.

You could make a raised platform to get to the 49 inch wide part of the van, or get a ready made or custom dunnage rack.

I got another $1500 off after the deal had been made. My wife went out and measured it at 47" and came in and said no way. They talked her into it with a $1500 discount off an already incredible price.
