Sleeping in the XR is great - just bring a pillow/blanket and fold them rear seats down :) Downside is no bathroom/shower :(

Camping in an XR is great until you try to get out of the back. You fold the rear seats down and the front seats forward. When the seats are folded foward the seat back blocks the handle. As you try to pull the seat out of the way, you lose your balance and fall back and put your head through the back glass. :shock: :oops: :cry:

Hey, it can happen...

Yeah, and then there's the fact that I'm 6'3" AND have my battery mounted right behind the rear bench. So camping in the hatch is out. :lol:

Neat car - much prefer it to the Z! The hotel is practically walking distance to Rt.81, just a stone's throw east of the Rt. 81/11 interchange.

See you there! :)
