Will it fit in a CRv?

Posted this in the will it fit "sticky" but wasn't sure if anyone would see it. So posting here, if I shouldn't it can be deleted.

Has anyone tried a tandem in the new Honda CRv? On long trips we have taken the wheels and the seat posts and saddles (obvously stoker bar come off with captain's saddle) and it fits laying down in our TSX with the back seats folded down. I think we could do the same with the new CRv or maybe we could create a way to attach front and rear at the dropouts and slide it in. I measured the Crv and it is 68 inched from the back of the front seats to inside the lip of the rear hatch.

Thoughts?

Should fit just fine.
Heck we've carried our tandem in Honda hatchback, Honda station wagon and even an old VW Squareback back in the 70s!
