    Rental Car for 3 bikes in boxes

    Going to Whistler/Squamish later this year (from UK) and need to rent a car/van that will take 4 people and 3 bikes in their boxes - approx 60" long. Just wondering if anyone can suggest a vehicle that will do this.
    From the web it looks like the Dodge Caravan might work - with one of the second row seats and the third row double seat folded.
    Anyone tried this?
    Obviously would work with the bikes out of the boxes but of course we will need them for the return trip.

    PS: Which trails to do? Just 10 days of riding...

    Either an extended cab truck or minivan. Minivan has better gas mileage and everything can be locked up inside.

    Went in early September, I rented a pickup, for 4 dudes 4 bikes. got a f150 mega cab, it was sweet. minivan would be another good option. truck rental was cheap for 12 days I paid under 650.00USD. 1 day riding uncomfortably numb(painful but worth it), 3 days in bike park (totw & khyber pass are amazing), 2 days in squamish, and 2 days in pemberton. You will laugh at your local trails after riding BC! pemberton was my fav, and had the most pucker factor

    Minivan or van for stealth and security.

    Minivan drives quite nice.

    Minivan. Ive got 60" clear in my '07 Ody if the middle row seats are pushed forward a bit. Or if it's 3 guys you just pull out the one seat in the middle row.

    Edit: misread- 4 guys not 3. May want to know exactly what model you're getting if possible beforehand.

    You enjoy them from the inside, not the outside.
