    I’m wondering if you know a Lyon&Healy 85P would fit in a Toyota Rav4 or a Honda CRV? I’m planning on getting one, but I need to know if my harp will fit in it…

    Phoebe:

    There is a thread on this message board that is full of posts/discussions on which vehicle makes the best “harpmobile,” for transporting a harp. However, this site no longer has the search feature, so I’m not sure how you could find those posts.

    I don’t know about the Toyta RAV4, but I know the Toyotta Sienna is touted as one of the favorites

    I just now noticed you were talking about an LH 85P.

    Hi Phoebe,

    I have an L&H 85P and a 1996 Rav4.

    Here’s what I did before I bought my car in 2002:

    When I bought my current car, the salesman made that offer to me. The thing was, I live about 35 miles from the dealer, and I really didn’t want to drive home, load the harp, unload the harp and drive back all within 3 hours’ time. What I did was measure the length of the back of my Subaru and then measure the length of the back of the Element I was considering. The Element had a couple more inches, so I knew it would work, and it does.

    I was told a concert grand will not fit into a CRV. I’m not sure an 85P is any shorter than a full concert grand harp….probably is…..but the CRV doesn’t have too much space in the back compared to some other cars used commonly to haul harps.
