    i am looking for a cargo cover for my 2018 Toyota Prius Two and want to make sure which kinda to get.

    my 2007 prius had a notch just behind the seats where the main cover section (where the cover rolls up into) dropped into the notch (see 1st & 2nd images). you pulled the handle edges back and down into the curve and let it snap forward.

    my 2018 prius has a different connection for the cover unit (see 3rd, 4th images). it seems to be a handle and not a notch, more like the cover would have a cord to catch the handle sticking out.

    if you've bought one recently, which kind did you buy? are there adapters to attach to my my handles so a 2007 style will work??

    thanks

    It'll accept either type. The Ts and knobs for attaching the lightweight cover pop out and allow you to put in the rollout type. I prefer the lightweight type since it's stretchy and will accommodate oversized items easier. And, if you want to stow it, it takes almost no space.

    jerry, thx for your experience. i thought the T bars would pop out, but i hadnt figured out how to do so. if one takes them out (pls pass along any ideas on how to do so), do the ends of the rollout style push in so they will fit in the rectangular recesses? on my 2007, the top side of the recess was open so the rollout cover just dropped in.

    They just pop out but the first time they are tight. It takes some rocking.
    Here's a not so great picture of the T so you can see what's hidden.

    And here's the knob, which is a little different but works the same way.

    muchas gracias. when i saw that little "pin" (the one visible above your thumb), i figured that is what it was. but it didnt move much. i'll price covers and go w/ the best deal.


    btw, my 2018 prius package two is averaging about 50+ mpg since i bought it in december 2020. in town mpg is better than 450 miles on highways.

    That's pretty similar to what my wife is getting in her 2017 two. We got hers in August last year. She loves it. Way better than the 2007 that she also loved.

    LOL!!! I had to think about that one but now I know what I did. I thought about responding to it on the thread where you put it but then forgot all about it. It was in the "quote basket" when I inserted erperez's quote and I didn't notice it at the time. Oops! :oops: At least I came back in time to edit it out, so now people will see your question above and think, "What the heck is bisco talking about?" :ROFLMAO:

    I don't think anyone questions my sanity. I'm pretty sure they all know I'm nuts. :whistle:
