    Hi all,

    I'm looking for a very heavy duty cargo net for the rear cargo area. Since I'm planning to haul firewood, I need something quite strong (in case of collision or roll-over). If that happens, I don't want all of the heavy wood to enter the passenger area.

    Here's a photo example of what I am seeking:

    Any recommendations will be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Tim

    Maybe a small tarp, doubled over, with heavy straps?

    Nexus 4 ?

    We're looking for something more secure, not make-shift.

    The weight limits for a Prius do not make it useful for hauling wood. Something like 800 pounds total. With 500 pounds in the back you might not make it up the first hill!
