Anybody going to use their CT to haul windsurfing gear?

I’m wondering if the vault can be closed, drop the rear seats, open the tailgate and slide in windsurfing gear? Have to be careful not to open the vault and chop the nose of the board!

That's one of the reasons I'm hoping the back window will go down. 6 1/2ft bed won't work. If the back window rolls down you could lock up your boards and 2 piece mast.

You Wouldn't be able to roll the vault closed if something was throught the back window. The vault roll up appeared to roll from the bottom front of the bed up than down to the back...
oh reread it. The vault was closed already and tailgate down

This did make me think. There would have to be a safety shut-off switch, when the back window is not closed the vault cover would need to shut off, and not open or close. I wouldn't want to damage cargo, a dog, or a person. So, the only time it would operate is with the window closed. I could still see the possibility of having the vault cover down, then rolling the window down though. As a matter of fact, I could see myself doing that a lot. Driving with the vault cover down and the back window down with gear sticking through the window opening.
