Good stuff, thanks for the info. Glad the parking beeper can turn off, but a bit of a bummer that the captains chairs are harder to find on the XLT. I'm hoping to find a cheap one with 50k+ miles that's maybe had the interior abused a bit so when I drop a mud bomb on it or rally it on braking bump covered logging roads I don't kill all the value of a perfect van. My vehicles tend to get, shall we say "well used", but I'm religious about maintenance of the important bits.
Hi all, I'll be purchasing a LWB wagon, 2014 or newer, when the right used one comes up. It'll be a combo personal + business vehicle for my mountain bike apparel company. I only care about two features, 2nd row captains chairs and it needs to have the liftgate. I'll have a tall hitch-mount bike rack on it 90% of the time from these guys (best racks in the biz). http://recon-racks.com/new-products/r5-5bike-shuttle-rack. Do I need to avoid the backup sensor option due to bikes on back? Will it constantly be going off with bikes on back and annoy me? The other thing I'll need to figure out eventually is how to cover all of the carpet with rubber or vinyl, even under the rear seats. I'll have the 3rd row seats out except for rare exceptions when we need to haul 5 or 6 people to a ride day. WeatherTech has one that goes on top of the folded seats, but that's not what I'm looking for. I'll probably just get a big sheet of rubber and cut it to fit. Vinyl factory flooring would be ideal, but probably not easy to find that to go with captains chairs.
