dont know what the trunk in a vert looks like but couldnt you just make it down firing and have it fit fine?
plus does the trunk have a additional wall or is the back of the rear seats the "wall"?
if so, just remove the rear seats and you should be able to fit in w/e. i've done this with many times. also good cuz its Very difficult to remove (and bad i guess) for thieves
