How to get a large into a Prius?

I may have the happy problem of having to get a used large BGE into a Toyota Prius tomorrow. Hoping someone can suggest the best way to do this.
Will it fit sitting upright in a rear seat with a seatbelt?
Or laying down in the back, with the car seats folded down?
If you've done it before, i could use some help.

    I say put the Prius in the egg and get someone with a truck to come pick the egg up! ;)

    Sorry. I know that was no help but I had to say it.

    Couldn't the base ride shotgun and then sport the dome as a hat? :huh:

    :huh: Yu talkin bout the Egg or the Prius???? :laugh:
  • I brought my LG Egg home in a prius but the dome was separated from the base. If it fits in the back seat thats were I would put it

    Please tell me how it worked out for you.

    I have a 1984 nissan 300 zx that I brought home my egg in. Determination is what will make it happen.

    My car has no back seat.....its a hatchback......and it happened.
    Good luck :P
  • make sure you have the white plastic retainer clips to hold the bands together. Loosen the bands to separate the dome from the bottom. Bring sacrificial seat covers etc.. Take the innards out and put in trunk. put dome in back seat, put bottom in front seat. fasten seat belts. Don't think about the first cook until you pull into your driveway. reassemble. put in lump, light, open beer, drink beer, and cook. enjoy.

    Update from the OP:

    I did acquire the large BGE as planned. The bands were loose and dome was separate from the base, so no problem transporting it under the hatchback. . .

    Thanks for the helpful suggestions & the chuckles (like the suggestion to put the Prius into the egg. . . )

    I will shortly post some pictures of what I acquired & ask you for your advice on how to rehab this puppy.

    Do you ever post an opinion without derisively mocking the opposite opinion? The condescension in your posts is why you got a bad reputation around here when you first started posting. Seriously, do you read what you write or consider that you are really derogatory a lot of the time.

    Yea, I drive a truck. But I've also owned some of the finest german and asian automobiles. I'll take my pickup any day over any of them.
