How much weight can my Camry carry ?

97 Camry LE 4 cyl.
I need to pick up some concrete pavers that are 2"x8"x16" & weigh 17 pounds each.
I need 36 & the total weight will be 612 pounds.
Can i put these in the trunk safely ?

not the trunk no. if you blanket teh interior and spread out the weight you should have no problems. as many as ya can in the front and rear seats and the rest in the trunk.

I agree with big bird, and if you can't fit them all just make two trips. I did have a laugh imagining what your car would look like if it pulled up next to me with all that in the trunk. It might be a bit off balance, rear wheels rubbing on the wheel well, front looking like its on a jack. I have seen cars driving like that before, looks ridiculous.

If you can pull the lower rear seat cushion out. Think of the pavers in terms of equivalent passenger weight.
