Not really, 1/3 of the back seat folds down to allow boards thru, plenty of room for gear in the trunk. Not much legroom but its got plenty lateral room to stretch out back there. Its not spacious but I sure LoLLed when someone was complaining about fitting 3 people with gear into an suv.
It's pretty rare that if there are this many of us going I am the one to drive. Last time kid had a CRV with bald tires in a storm...wasn't about to put my life in his hands lol.
is it late october yet?
