Camper mode experience with 7 seater

I am on the fence on the 7 seater option. The main concern is whether it would compromise the "camper mode experience". I heard that with all the rear seats folded down, the cargo surface is not totally flat, due to 1. there is a gap between the second and third rows and 2. the third row creates a raise in the cargo floor.

Not sure if those makes the camping experience less enjoyable. One thing that I might need the MY to do is to serve as an extra bedroom (for me) when guest comes. :)

I was concerned about the 7 seater option with regard to this but it was much better than I thought it would be. There is a slightly higher section than the floor of the trunk area. If you had some sort of mattress, I doubt you would even notice it.

We originally ordered the 5 seat but glad we picked up the 7 seater from inventory. It is much more useful than I thought it would be.

Exactly why I am asking lol

About the lid flipping, I am worried that it's can't support my weight (180lb) that way
The lid would be 25~33% of your body length and you torso would most likely be over the backs of the rear seats regardless of orientation.

I'm 250 lbs and knelt on the lid while moving around the back installing car seats and dog seat covers on the middle row. It's sturdy.

Got it. Thanks! I guess everything checks out for sleeping in a 7 seater then. :) Time to order one..
