Can the panel advise if this luggage option is still available?

Direct purchase doesn't seem to be an option anymore.

Any downsides with this option from your experiences ?

Any member wish to sell to suit a 2011 +4 Supersports (Green would be great !!)

Thanks

Kev,
they are excellent & fill the void behind the seats perfectly. We did a 3 week holiday to Sorrento & back last year with the 2 bags plus a boat bag on the back for shoes & bulky coats. With just the hills alive we can easily cover a week away & probably 2 weeks.

Don't buy the fastening chain it easier to fit an eyebolt to the rear floor & use a length of stainless cable with soft eyes.

I think they went bust so either you buy secondhand or find a dealer who still has stock.

I'm afraid they didn't work for us and we used them once and reverted to soft bags. While they fitted into the car well they were awkward to handle outside of the car. Soft bags allowed more space for jackets etc. and the HillsAlive bags fouled the seatbelts unless you left the side pockets empty.
Perhaps I should add that our set was one of the first sold and that they may have improved the design subsequently.

we have them and they fit perfectly, his and hers bags. Agree they are a strange shape but its the best shape to fit the rear parcel shelf. The chairs must be fully slid forward to extract them which will stop the burgular!

We only use them for long holidays and to keep our undies dry...we also have a case on the rear carrier too !

I had them for my Mog, thought they were brilliant.

To my mind, where they’re better than a soft bag is that your shirts etc don’t get crumpled because they are semi-rigid.

If buying secondhand, do make sure that they’re for the correct model of Morgan. I know they were different for long door/short door/sport models.

I find them unjustifyably expensive.

We’ve had a pair for several years and they work very well for us, no wasted space at all behind the seats. One (hers of course) is slightly wider because they were made to measure the shelf width exactly. The only downside is the price, but I think it was worth paying to keep SWMBO happy as she can take a little more.
We normally only take the case on the luggage rack if the trip is long or includes a black tie dinner.

Ikea bags work well for us.
