Yes, it seems the gap might be there because of the reclining seats as well as the way the seats release from the cargo area (as KenA wrote).The gap is there because of the reclining rear seats?
How much did it cost?
Is only 2/3’s of the cover retractable?
I think it looks really nice!
Purchased the cover from here: https://www.hondapartworld.com/8809_08U35-TGS-110
I'd say it covers 90-95%. What's a drag is if you push items up against the rear seats the contents might be visible due to the gap.
