Transporting a cab

So, I've got a 2007 Camry (well it's my dad's technically, but it's the car I use, so that's irrelevant), and I'd like to know if the people here think it's big enough to fit a Mesa 4x12 cab. I'm planning on picking it up a week from Saturday and my drummer, whose car would undoubtedly be capable of fitting such a beastly piece of equipment, is really not very eager to drive the two hours to pick it up. He's quite sure I could fit it into my car, but I can't tell if he actually believes that, or if he's just telling me that because he's biased and doesn't want to lend a hand.

So, what do you guys think? Would it be possible to fit it by shuffling some things around and putting the seats down? Or, should the drummer just tough up, accept the compensation I'm offering and do it?

I hate to sound pessimistic but I think you will have a very difficult time fitting a 4x12 cab into a Camry...

Re: Transporting a cab

Im pretty confident it can be done. I transport a full stack in a Honda civic. I put one cab in the truck and one in the backseat. And of course my guitars ride shotgun

The cab in the trunk has casters so even with the extended length it fits with enough room on the sides to stuff my extra cables, shoes, and my Xbox 360

Re: Transporting a cab

1) get the dimensions of the cab
2) get a tape measure
3) measure to see if it will fit.

Yeah, that's what I'm planning on doing. Though today, after eyeballing the car's dimensions, and looking at the cab's dimensions, I've begun to think it'll fit if I just lay it on its side across the back seat. After all, just look at the back seats...

I think it'll be okay. But I will definitely be sure to measure dimensions before I make my final decision.

Re: Transporting a cab

maybe if the 4x12 doesnt fit , you should consider getting two 2x12 ... easy to split and place in different parts of the car lying down or standing up ,,,,, just a thought .
