    I service a small number of pools on the side. I have a 16ft pole that retracts to 8ft. I need to fit that pole and three 5/gal buckets inside. Would I be able to use a Prius V in this situation?

    welcome!
    sure, even a lift back would handle that with ease

    You can get the 10' pole in their without retracting if you also lower the passenger seat and allow the pole to go into the passenger footwell. 8' will make it without losing the passenger seat but it might need to rest on the storage bin between the seats. It have moved 10' sticks of pvc and lumber in small quantities.

    Thanks for the response.

    Just to share with you guys:

    I used to use a Highlander Hybrid, and it was recently totaled by insurance. I’m probably going to buy a 2012 Prius V with the insurance settlement now.
