The rear baggage compartment is right behind the rear seat. The aft part of the baggage compartment is stepped up to make room for the elevator bellcrank, and an optional location for the battery. My battery will be in the normal place, on the firewall, but there is an optional rear battery location if you have a heavy engine (200 hp IO-360).

The rear baggage area measures about 30 inches long, by 22 inches wide by 25 inches high. The shelf at the rear is 10 inches high by 12 inches long. There is quite a bit of room back there, but you have to be careful not to put too much weight in it, or the centre of gravity would be too far aft.

In the photo, we are looking rearwards from the cockpit into the rear baggage compartment. The dark horizontal tube at the bottom is the torque tube that connects the two flaps. The bulkhead behind it will be just behind the rear seat back. You can see the rearmost armrests just ahead of that bulkhead.
