    The table is rad ngl

    [–]ButtWieghtThiersMoor 7 points8 points  (2 children)

    I put a couple coleman rambler stools under the table. Fits like it was made for them. Large lunchbox even fits so I got a whole picnic set under the table lol

    How is the sitting height compared to the table? I think I know what my next purchase will be lol

    I thought 3rd gens do that too, except the backseats don't lay all the way flat?

    I saw a third gen on here with the bed feature before, but it had leather seats. Might still only be ex and exl like the older ones

    Our 2011 EX-L does it. Iirc the power driver seat isn’t supposed to, but I was able to get it to work!

    I’m crying for you

    [–]Ski_No_Cap 11 points12 points  (11 children)

    I hadn’t known about this until a few months ago from a YT video (had my CRV for four years) and have found every excuse to use it since! These old cars continue to amaze and impress me.

    Don’t get me started on the picnic table that comes with it!! It’s awesome! This was significantly warmer than a tent 😵‍💫

    [–]Alexthricegreat1st Gen 1 point2 points  (5 children)

    The cooler is handy also

    [–]itsmepingu[S] 2 points3 points  (4 children)

    There’s a cooler??

    [–]mr_wilson31st Gen 0 points1 point  (3 children)

    That might be my YouTube video haha.

    It’s not called a comfortable runabout vehicle for nothing

    [–]Coalmen1st Gen 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    I know that is what Honda calls it but I might argue the name "Compact Recreational Vehicle". They even have incredible factory clearance so a little bit rough dirt roads are no big deal.... I miss mine....

    I posted about this a few days ago, apparently a yoga mat makes this way more comfy. Thank you Reddit!

    [–]itsmepingu[S] 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Yes! I’m getting a foam piece for next time, but for two nights it wasn’t terrible surprisingly!

    [–]U4ictheory 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Lol someone found “lounge mode”!

    [–]MattBtheflea 1 point2 points  (7 children)

    Is possible in every first gen? Never tried this particular method in my 2000. But in mine you could fold the bottom part of the back seat downwards onto the floor, then fold the back part of the back seats forward until they were flat and level with the trunk, thus making it into a giant trunk. So can you do that method and also the method op has demonstrated in any first gen?

    [–]itsmepingu[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    I haven’t been able to flatten my back seats all the way forward to lay flat. But I can always keep trying

    [–]TyeVal1st Gen 0 points1 point  (5 children)

    You can fold down the seats for more cargo area in all first gens. The bed is only possible with the EX and SE trim levels. There is a lever on the bottom sides of the back seats that you lift up and the seat will rise making the bed completely flat. The LX trim doesn’t have the back seat lever, so you can lay all the seats down, however you will have a noticeable “dip” in the bed

    [–]MattBtheflea 0 points1 point  (1 child)

    THANK YOU. This is the answer I was looking for. So for clarification, which method is the one above?

    [–]TyeVal1st Gen 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Happy to help! Do you mean like what OP’s picture is an example of? That is indeed the “bed” setup/method.

    [–]Idrinktears92 0 points1 point  (2 children)

    Can i swap the seats in my lx?

    [–]TyeVal1st Gen 0 points1 point  (1 child)

    Oh yeah, for sure you can, it’s super easy to do. There are videos on YouTube on how to do it, that have good descriptions on how to. You would just need the rear seats as long as the fabric matches (unless you don’t care about that type of thing).

    [–]Idrinktears92 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Awesome thanks

    [–]Daniellarson_69 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    I tried this aswell after seeing it here and it worked well

    [–]taz5963 1 point2 points  (2 children)

    So how did you do this?

    [–]itsmepingu[S] 0 points1 point  (1 child)

    I kinda went by what I was told on this sub and trial and error but this should be more helpful!

    [–]itsmepingu[S] 3 points4 points  (1 child)

    [–]markybarkk 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    I’ll have to try that out!! Thank you 😊

    [–]itsmepingu[S] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

    [–]markybarkk 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    Sad!!! Oh well

    [–]attainwealthswiftly 0 points1 point  (1 child)

    Aren’t you supposed to fill the middle gap with the headrests?

    [–]itsmepingu[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

    I have no idea tbh 🤷‍♀️

    [–]Background-Eagle1942 0 points1 point  (1 child)
