7-seater cargo space with 3rd row folded: equivalent to 5 seater?

A small (uncalculated) gain is that you CAN store stuff underneath the 2nd row seats. Is it as much as the 2nd, shallow cargo area on a 5-seat? probably not, but there is a place to put cords/accessories if you so choose. You will also lose about 1" of height in the trunk, but personally, I've never packed my car so full that 1" would have made a difference. I got the 7-seat for flexibility.

Why try to make a 5 seater trunk kit fit for the 7 seater when you can get a trunk kit tailor made for your model Y 7 seater? Introducing our new 7 seater trunk! Please let me know your thoughts. Thanks!

Do you have any actual pictures of it installed in the trunk of a 7 seater Y?
