Me and my friends are heading to Coachella for our first time ever this year and could not be more excited, but we're going to be taking a Hyundai Accent which is a compact 2 door vehicle. We're gonna have 4 people and camping stuff, a cooler, and our own personal belongings. Does anyone have any good suggestions on how we can fit everything???? The only thing I can think of is one of those hitch baskets, or this thing called a handi rack.

Throw the flat/square stuff the roof, secure it with a net and bungee cords.

if there's anything at all you haven't bought yet in the way of camping gear, wait and buy it at one of the local wal-marts when you get there and unload half your crap. that, and the roof rack isn't a bad idea.

Not gonna happen. I have the same car, they don't make hitches for them so a tow plate won't work. you could tie some shit on the roof but there is no rack up there. I would say your best bet is to pile things on top of the passengers. But getting it all in is damn near impossible.

Or you could ghetto rig something like this to your trunk with a few ratchet straps. Remember kids, safety first.

First off, Playa, those pics are hilarious!
And, Canook, 4 peeps, camping stuff, and a cooler...in a Hyundai Accent? Unless you're all athletes and plan on towing the car between you, I'd say do the Walmart procedure. There's one near the fest that's a super one and has everything. Plus, they know what's going on and usually have plenty of stock. I can't imagine a cooler on someones lap coming from Canada.

And to make your return trip home easier, you can always buy cheap towels for showering, styrofoam coolers, etc. and then toss them at the end of the weekend.

Also, pack very tightly. I fit all my clothes, tent, supplies, etc. in my carry-on bag and took the train to LA last year, picked up food and water, then carpooled the rest of the way. Your food and water should take up most of your space.

You don't exactly toss the stuff.
In the past, any good tents, sleeping bags.....anything left over that can be salvaged has been picked up by the Coachella Valley Rescue Mission. http://www.cvrm.org/index.html
I'm not 100% sure if they will be there again this year, but If they are the items you leave behind (donations) will definitely be appreciated.

I also have a 2 door vechicle. Look at the 6ft bed. How much beer can you fit in there? It doesnt matter coz its more than the 2 people the car seats can drink. And Ill still have room for other crap.
