    Research says that the 2016 Prius does not have a flat cargo floor, unlike earlier generations, as it drops three inches compared to earlier models as the spare tire no longer takes up room. Can you discuss the flatness of the floor/sleeping area? Thanks!

    Depends on the model - mine only has a small drop, but I've got a "pretend" spare tyre.

    I have the 2016 Prius Model Three with a small donut spare tire. So the floor is almost level. Some times I put a rolled up towel on the area where the folded down seats have the level change. But when I have the camping set up with a rubber mat and the sleeping air pad the difference is barely noticeable.
