I took my Fiero camping for a number of years; Ii put the jack in front of the master cylinder, then my Father made a camping cabinet that went in on top of the spare- Had a slot for canned food, then the rest was for any other food items + pot and pan else....Axe, spot/reading camp-light, rake, and tent ground tarp......Rear compartment; 2 sleeping bags, 2 pads, water jug, rake handle(Twisted up under the rubber seal at the front of the compartment), clothes bags and either an inflatable kayak, or a 6" telescope........Passenger compartment, behind seats; 3-man tent, small backpack with hiking shoes inside, shaver kit, stove.....Passenger footwell; Small ice box with pillow on top.

I'm not sure this list is complete......But there was no room for a mouse in either the front or rear compartment...In fact, if I forgot to put something in, the space left would be shaped like what I forgot!

No pictures, but the wife and I went on a week-long camping trip in our first Fiero back in the early 90's. Something we DIDN'T carry was a spare tire, a spare ignition module, or tools.

We had a 10 x 12 cabin tent and a ground tarp large enough to cover the floor. Probably a 12 x 14. A double sleeping bag and a couple of shipping blankets for ground padding. Clothes for each us for a week. Coleman stove and fuel. Pots and pans. Bug light. 50 ft. power cord. Electric and regular coffee pots. Coffee. 2 small fold up canvas chairs. Camera and gadget bag.

Only the camera and bag were in the passenger compartment, along with some travel snacks. We covered Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Kentucky, North and South Carolina, camping at a different campground each night, except for 1 night at my cousin's home in White House, Tn.

The most creative thing I had loaded in my Fiero was a 89+ ZF 6 speed for a C4 vette. I took out the passenger seat and drove to OH to pick it up. Put it in the passenger floor board and drove home with it.

It's only an Isuzu 5-spd (destined for my '84), but this is how I transported it home years ago in my '86 GT.




And the same car transporting a complete cat-back exhaust home from the wreckers...




I don't need no stinkin' truck!

RWDPLZ may have done it differently, but I've had three wheels/tires where the passenger seat goes and one in the trunk.

One Xmas when driving my GT back to Calgary from Vancouver, I crested a hill at 125kph (75mph) and hit a fist sized rock on the highway.
Both wheels on the driver's side connected with it. The rear tire was blown out instantly. I put my spare tire on (real fun in the dark...)
A few miles down the road, the front tire went flat.

I hitched a ride into the nearest town, got a tow truck, and had a tire shop open for Emergency Service ($60).
They didn't have the Toyo brand of tire, so I bought 2 "take offs" of the correct size for $80.
I had to take my old tires back to Calgary to get my Toyo warranty replacements.

My passenger seat had my 2 blown tires on it with a CRT computer monitor in the "hole" and a computer box on the floor.
My trunk was full with luggage and Xmas gifts, the front had the spare and jack back in place...

The "secret" for the Fiero is TIRES.
Either high quality All-Season or winter tires (even better) if you're driving in snow.

Trying to hitch a ride on a winter Sunday morning at 5:00am was no picnic...
A snow plow operator who was finishing his shift saw my car and picked me up.

I use trunk, P side seat space w/ and w/o a seat and trunk rack all the time.
Examples:
This weekend had large tool boxes on the rack and tools PC and food on P seat and floor.
few weeks ago had trunk & P side space full of scrap and old water heater on Trunk rack.
I take P side seat out to carry big dogs. I have a "Squeezewrench" to remove/replace the seat very easy. (I have a old Skewdriver from them for 20+ years too. Very good tools but many knockoffs now on the market.)

I don't carry much in front... I keep only a empty plastic jug and normal OE spare tire etc. Too many things can be damage by rubbing/hitting like if you just hit/snag Brake MC cover can get Brake Fluid on everything. Washer tank is easy to damage by things going in/out of that area too.

I often fit, a tool bag and two small pieces of hard lugage in the trunk that already has a battery in the right side. Then in the front compartment, there are two fire extinguishers, car finishing wax, tire shine, Windex, a few polishing cloths, a spare set of belts and a dusting mop. This is how we travel to summer shows such as the event at Carlisle.

At one of the car shows, I ordered Pizza for all the Fiero owners that came to the show, we had one of the guys use his fiero to pick them up. He had a passenger with him, they picked up 10 full size pizzas. It was the funniest thing to see, 5 in the passengers lap, 3 on the floor, 2 on the drivers side floor. I bet it took months to get rid of the pizza smell.

I had my entire new interior inside my car, drove up to my uncle's house to install it because he helped install it.

Not the most I have fit in the car, but a recent fill. This was my getaway car in case my Dad and I were not able to keep the fire off our house and had to flee. Also had my cat in his cage in there, but took him out before taking the picture. Trunk had my computer, some photo albums and other random stuff.

And fortunately we were successful at saving the house and my cars so I didn't need to use the getaway.

Same here on the dorm room. In college the Fiero was my primary transportation. So in mine I had a 20inch TV, 2 Bookshelf Speakers, Amp, Tape Deck, CD player, as well as clothes for a whole semester, bedding material, towels, etc. Trunk was packed full.... I used a suit bag to pack clothes in the front trunk area, lots of stuff behind the seats, plus a couple of boxes on the luggage rack.
