Hi I'm thinking of purchasing a 2016 Rav 4 SE but I'm curious if any of you guys have been able to transport an 8 foot 2x4 inside with the back hatch shut? A buddy of mine cracked his windshield in the 3rd gen rav when he shut the back gate.

If you must use the RAV4 and if there are several pieces of the 8x2x4, I would use the roof rails with cross-bars. If there is just one or two pieces, try put the middle seat backs down flat and the passenger front seat back as far back as it can then place the wood diagonally across the car (I would measure the length with a tape measure first) and bring old cloth as padding).

If just transporting a few (e.g. 1-10 pcs), I've managed by flipping down rear seats and sliding passenger seat forward, and placing 8' lengths at an angle (from front passenger spanning to driver-side hatch gate). I've even transported 10' long items by sliding passenger seat back and fully reclining, and flipping back seats down, and putting object down in passenger footwell, spanning to the back cargo area.

If transporting larger quantities and with any regularity, then the RAV4 probably isn't ideal.
