Found the best way to pack a convertible:
Lay a garment bag down first, this will slide under the top a little bit
Use 2 luggage bags (Dimensions: 21.0 " H x 14.0 " W x 7.0 " D )

I found these at Target for $39.99 ea. (Perfect!)

Now I'm ready for my 6 day trip to Western North Carolina.

We do the very same and found: one garment bag down for insulation, the two pieces of luggage, a cotton bag for dirty clothes(it will stuff in the corners), a roll of bounty paper towels for the windshield with a spray cleaner. We put a pair of shorts and two car show tee shirts in the left storage and take off. We have spent 4 weeks on the road making sure that about every four nights we stay in a place with a guest laundry(usually a Hampton).
All of our vettes have been convertibles. After we unload at night we can still get the top down and cruise the new locations. And thanks for sharing. cutnout aka charlie

Nice that even the convertible has enough storage to get by. I actually wish there were more places to put stuff in the cabin (like.. a sunglasses holder or something). Awesome that this car is so accommodating for long road trips, that's a big part of its appeal even for me.

If you don't need the top down while traveling, four of those bags + stuff will fit. Just drop the protector.

If you were ever into two up motorcycle touring with just a pair of saddlebags, there is plenty of room.

With top down (which mine always is), I've found the recess under the top is great for shoes/smaller items. Laundry bag goes in the cubby hole. I put the garment bag (if traveling dictates nicer clothes) on TOP of the luggage so clothes aren't crushed.

I've found that traveling lighter actually makes the trip more enjoyable, less 'stuff' to haul in and out of cars at hotel stops. You'd be amazed how much crap you can do without.

Just reinforces my decision for a coupe.
A little more room.....
But after years of weekending on a sailboat, I've taught the wife to pack light...:)

Thanks for the pictures and looking for your answer to Mikey's question on brand type at Target.
Looks like still room for car cover on top. I have an outdoor cover coming tomorrow but have doubts on it it will ever travel with 2 of us out of town because of size.
Might have to find one of the real lite weight ones- Figure take less room than cleaning supplies-hahaha and hunting a hose.
I have only done fair in my spousal training on trip packing- one bag but all the shoes!!!!!! And when I travel I always have my O/U's-Gonna be a thrill learning.

Exactly where I'm going this afternoon to check them out. Then Target.
