The trunk seems perfect for a lot of things but not great that the spare in there if I'm thinking about putting fish on ice or and other dead, smelly, sticky things in there, how do you do it?

What else do out in there? Helmets, golf clubs, life jackets, are just a few things I can think of

I'd probably put the smelly fish in a cooler before I put it in the trunk.....I have put 2 sets of golf clubs in the trunk. Nice that you can secure them before you stop in for a few beers after a round of golf.

Most of those mentioned above at one time or other, including golf clubs.
Also a large thin sheet of polyethylene foam, in case I need corner protection for something I load in the back.
And a come-along hand winch.
And of course my cargo net.

This works well for straps, hitch stuff and a hundred other things. Has a ton of pockets and stand up nice in the trunk leaving room for bigger things on the side and front.

I love having the trunk to stow away all the safety gear. Straps, gloves, first aid, ect. Available but out of the way. I had those things stuffed in every compartment on my previous Honda Element.

Mine is empty most of the time, but I keep a small bag under rear seat with a tow strap, cables & x-tra warm gloves socks etc in winter.
My trunk does get full in summer, with about 75% of my camping gear. I like that I can put my sleeping bags & mats, clothes etc in to keep them dry, and still fit a ton of other gear too.

My Mesa Boogie 2x12 guitar cabinet fits in the trunk perfectly. Unless I need the space for something else, it pretty much lives there between gigs...

Jug of water. Extra towels. And a moving blanket to keep the jug from sliding all over.

My wife wants to use it as a tailgating cooler but it's not insulted and I don't want the spare getting wet in there.

Here in FL. With the heat and humidity. I'm a little nervous about keeping the ratchet straps in there due to rot and deterioration. I keep those under the back seat (I know, they still get hot there). But at least it's not an absolute oven. Still the trunk is a cool thing to have for days at the beach and family trips

I'm thinking about cutting up some rubber floor mats and adding them to the floor of the trunk to catch the dirt and sand.

This is after I get my weather tech mats.
