Perfect cargo organizer under the false floor

There is a lot of room underneath that false cargo floor.

I had a thought... I can put a cargo organizer underneath the false floor. Then whatever I put in it can be hidden and won't bounce/roll around. The cargo area is about 39"x25"x9". Most cargo organizers are about 12" in height. Then I found this:

https://www.amazon.com/Rola-59001-M-...runk+organizer

The Rola 59001 is 38"x15"x7". On paper it's perfect and it should clear the cargo floor tilt catch area / hinge so it won't interfere with the tilting function.

I'll post a picture up after I receive and install it. I still have my above the false floor organizer. With organizers above and below the false floor, it should allow me to achieve "Maximum Density" in loading my cargo area on Costco supply runs.

I really liked the cargo organizer in my 2011 Leaf. It had two compartments each with its own lid. With the lids down, they formed a floor much like the Bolt. The lids could be lifted separately allowing me to slide stuf to one side and lift the the other lid.

It's a perfect fit:

There is no interference with the closing of the false cargo floor either.

Thanks a ton for doing the leg work ! I've been trying to find one.

What all do you guys carry in there? It looks really functional, but when I stop to think about it, I really don't carry stuff around with the car. Cargo comes and goes for sure frequently, but what goes in comes out at the other end.

That does look really good and it would help a lot with groceries. Putting eggs underneath and bread, you know the stuff that usually gets squished. Other than that though, maybe tire repair kit, one of those mini umbrellas, I don't know.

Let's see at the bottom: hot dogs, burger patties, buns, apples, breakfast burritos, berries, melons, mushrooms, veggies, salad.

Then on top bulky items: toilet paper and paper towels.

Thanks for taking the dive first!

I'd put some essentials in there that never leaves the car; first aid kit, small blanket, candles, wiper fluid, etc. Nice to have it all organized instead of sliding around the back.

Here are pictures from my latest Costco run:

The digital rear view mirror works great when the toilet paper blocked my traditional rear view.

i've removed the useless chunk of styrofoam they stuck down there to act as a holder for the nonexistent spare tire to free up additional valuable storage room for the "emergency stuff" I haul around in case of accident or earthquake or whatever.

Would this holder still work??? It says it has a solid bottom. Is it strong?
