Pajero Sport - How To Hide Your Cargo?

Recommended Posts

Many estate cars comes with a "curtain" that you can use to hide whatever you happen to have in your car; golf clubs etc. (see attached picture)

Is there something similar available for a Pajero Sport?

Have no idea if those curtains are available for the Pajero or the MU7

Had the same problem with my CRV, remembered the bl**dy thing in an estatecar I had in Holland.

Proceeded to one of those firms that are specialised in installing after-market accessories, sound systems, airco's.

Asked them if they might have a solution.

They had, piece of plate material they use in coachbuilding, a steel strip for strenghtening and a piece of "colour-keyed" carpet glued and stapled onto the top side of the wood.

Quite strong so putting something "on the back shelve" is not resulting of ripping your very expensive curtain style coveribng, and the whole thing can be taken out and stored, in my case, between the backrests of the seat and the LPG-tank.

Total cost was around 1200 baht.

I charge nothing for this wonderful idea.

See the attached picture, please waggle your head to see the pictures in the right way.

So sorry for the inconvenience

There are cargo covers as per your attached image for the Pajero Sport in other markets (I've seen it in one of the Australian Challenger ads on youtube), but I've never seen them in Thailand I'm afraid. If you look in the back you can clearly see the anchor and latch points for it..

In answer to your primary question though, I hide mine with 60% mirror tint ;)

I got worried the other day when I noticed how three extremely suspicious characters was looking into my cargo area the other night. Two of them appeared to be scouting for bypassers and one tried to look through the 70% tint by covering lateral light with both their hands and pressing his face onto the glass. He had clearly identified the items at the back. He didn't know I was watching from across the street. I cant afford to lose what I had in the back at the time, not for the money (well, that too..), but it'd be a nightmare to replace it. I keep those items there every now and then, and I'd feel a lot safer if I could prevent someone from being tempted.

So the PJS is sold in Australia as Challenger? I travel to Australia every now and then. I have also noticed that there appears to be something that looks like anchors and latch points. I will investigate if the cargo "blind", is it?" is available in Australia. Maybe someone else is interested to have one shipped home for free if I should happen to go there on business...?

PS.

I cant send you PMs anymore...

Wow, that's quite some story.. I wonder if a cargo blind would also pique their curiosity though? Bit of a catch-22 I suppose. I never keep any loose items of value in the car, but I'd probably go for a really good car security system if I was confronted with the same situation..

As for getting one in Australia while there on business, you may want to order it in advance, and check the pricing while you're at it.

I inquired with a couple of Mitsubishi dealerships in Oz re: side protection moldings (standard on the Aussie version, non-exist on the Thai version) and both said they'd be a 3 month wait out of Japan, and both quoted me AUD $500 (> 14,000 THB) for the set of 4, unpainted. In the end a little pressure on Mitsu in Rayong and I had them in 2 weeks, at < 2,000 Baht the set, fully painted ;)

As for PM's - I had to turn them off.. it was getting to the point where I was getting new messages every other page load..

Is this the correct pricing for the Aus version?

XLS 2.5 automatic 7 seat $58,890

Wow.

That's the retail price for the top spec, street prices are better than that though - street prices range from AUD $42k drive away (1.28M Baht) to $54k (drive away) for the top spec (1.57M Baht).

They're not the same as the Thai models though - all Aussie models are imported from Japan, have a 178HP 2.5L EuroIV diesel, a 5 speed AT (with MT available), 5 seats standard (7 seats is a plus option), different stereo system with built-in nav and bluetooth, side protection moldings standard, headlight washers and self-levelling xenon headlights (on top model) etc etc.
