Element owner here, as is my friend who is a semi-pro musician.

This is where I feel that Honda really missed out in their advertising.

I think you could probably shove a drum kit back there and have room left for a Marshall stack.

I used to own a Honda Pilot (until my daughter decided I didn't need it anymore and totaled it) and that thing could hold a lot of gear as well. I've since gotten a Mazda CX-9 to replace it and even though the Mazda has more Cu Ft of cargo space, it seemed like it was better laid out in the Honda.

They're all like putting a puzzle together though. Everything has to go in a certain way.

I still have my Toyota Matrix and it can hold a lot of stuff in it. When I was using it, I always got a comment from one of the facility people about "how did you get all that in there?" we have a band van now and I take my stuff and fit it in there. We are currently in transition between vehicles. I had to fix the brakes on our old van and while I was underneath it and looking at everything, I felt less confident about how long it would hold together. So we are currently looking for a newer van.

"I think you could probably shove a drum kit back there and have room left for a Marshall stack. "

I also had a ProJunior (back up) in the passenger seat footwell, but perhaps a kick drum (or at least a cocktail kick) could fit in the seat and the rest of a kit could have gone on top of everything in the back. The cable tubs, toolbox, and guitar in the way back could have been squeezed here and there, thus being able to place at least a half stack where they were.
