Do you use seats 6 and 7?

Just wondered how much people make use of the 2 boot seats, so do you use them on a regular basis, occasional, maybe a few times or never.

I have used mine only a few times, too much aggro taking down the dog guard (not used for dog, but to prevent luggage flying forward)

Ours languish under a Lintran dog crate, their only exposure is when the spare needs dropping. carrying lots of extra weight for nothing.

Nope, they live under a bed, they are a sod to store until I had that eureka moment. Load deck in so to drop the spare is a piece of weewee. Row 2 spends most of it's life under the stairs, just in for bit of winter. Nope, neither set are for sale. Rolling Eyes

Cue pic of load deck, holes have T-nuts in them for mounting offroad clobber. Mr. Green

I've used mine at Xmas for ferrying people about and once or twice in the summer for day trips out, they are one of the nice to haves not necessarily a need to have ?

Handy till you haven't got them then you would wish you had !

Don't use them much but very useful for taking turns in schools run when weather prevents school bus getting through which is quite regular here even on frosty mornings and the occasional trips with our daughters cousins.

Otherwise boot space normally has SWMBO's horse tack etc cluttering my beloved D3!

What annoyed me was that when I went to raise them to get to the winch, not only did you have to clear out the boot but you then had to clamber with your fat belly and and short legs over the tailgate to get to the release handle, why the Censored can they not have something's accessible form the rear to release them without having to then move child seats Rolling Eyes

Now wouldn't that be a nice option Thumbs Up Someone with sense, so easy for access, how does the carpet on the tailgate cope?

On the door itself? No problem, it doesn't rub and the flap drops down as normal when the door opens. If the dogs are in there I just bung a rubber boot mat in for them to stop any sliding around. Thumbs Up

PS The deck is at exactly the same height as the folded row 3 seats, not higher. It's just as if the seats were fitted but naff all weight and easy to drop the wheel. Thumbs Up

When I had my puncture a couple of weeks ago, not only did I have the LR rubber mat in but I had the boot liner tray in as well, plus the weekends boating gear, what a load of Thumbs Up ing about just to get to the spare wheel winder, everything out, tray out and after attempting to lift the seats with the heavy rubber mat on top of them gave up and that came out, not impressed! Will do the winch nut adaptation ASAP Thumbs Up
