Default CRV hauling ability

does anybody know if you can haul a 4x8 piece of plywood in a crv? i'd love to get rid of my ranger for a crv, but i need to haul plywood every so often.

Roof rack? I really don't see any way to fit them inside the car.

I'm pretty sure an element will but not sure about a CR-V.

I'd think twice about strapping down a 4x8 plywood on top of a CRV. What will most likely happen is the wind at speed will actually lift the wood right off the car. Disaster will insue.

I would find someone that has a truck or have it delivered.

You can always get a small trailer to haul it around.

If you need a vehicle to haul plywood, why get a CRV and a trailer? I mean I know it will be nicer to drive than a pickup, but I can't imagine running around with a trailer would be much fun. Why not just upgrade your Ranger to a newer Tacoma or something that can still haul what you need it to?

simply for the fact that i would rather drive a honda everyday. if i had the money, i would much rather have a tacoma than my ranger. there's just something about american vehicles that makes me want to vomit.
