Which one did you buy? Do you happen to know the name and model or a link?The cross-tailgate cargo nets marketed by Toyota as 2013-2015 actually only fit 2013 and 2014 because of a change to the hooks.
I would imagine that would be the same case for the 2016
I bought a "hammock" for my wife's '15 and it has been much more useful than the cross-tailgate net she had in her '04.
The advantage is that it is held up by two stiff aluminum rods so the hammock support is sturdy, unlike the envelope which is just held up by stretchy bands.What do folks use the hammock for? What advantage does it have? The cargo net looks useful to keep things rolling out when the hatch door opens?
If you don't haul a lot of random items then I guess having one won't help you much, but I like the idea of it because it sort of increases your cargo capacity.Hmm still not sold on any of them. Seems like the hammock is more in the way than useful.
That's exactly the case. Useless for hauling major stuff, but perfect for the suburban mom who needs somewhere to keep the sports gear and water bottles, etc. Heck, we even use it to hold our Chinese takeout for dinner.If you don't haul a lot of random items then I guess having one won't help you much, but I like the idea of it because it sort of increases your cargo capacity.
Let's say you have a bunch of items in the back. They're probably filling up the mat space with a bunch of open air above. The hammock allows you to utilize that unoccupied space above all your stuff in the cargo area. Did that make sense?
Drop plastic shopping/grocery bags into it and they don't roll around in the back.Hmm still not sold on any of them. Seems like the hammock is more in the way than useful.
My wife kinda rolled her eyes when I unboxed it and described it to her.Makes sense, but still seems more of a gimmicky thing that takes up more space than it's worth, just my opinion though...
The hammock style net is all kinds of handy. You can position it several different ways. And if it's in the way, there is a designated storage spot for it under the floor just behind the spare. There is also a space there to store the tonneau cover.Makes sense, but still seems more of a gimmicky thing that takes up more space than it's worth, just my opinion though...
Yep... Just a place to put stuff if you need it.Yep. I wasn't too sure if there was some function I was unaware of with the hammock, but it sound like it is just as straight forwards as it appeared to be. Thanks for the info.
