Will an official carry-on size of 9”x14”x22” fit through the opening or is a duffle bag the only way to go?

On a CTsw, it's tough. I managed with a smaller roll-aboard once and then switched to some nice LL Bean duffle bags.

I have an FAA-sized carry bag I use for trips.  It's soft sided and fits in the baggage bay of my CTSW, but it's tight.  There's no way this would work with a hard-sided FAA standard bag.

Here's the one I use.  I picked it in case I ever get stuck by weather or mechanical issues and need to take a commercial flight home:

When you place bags in the baggage compartments... do you bungy-cord everything down?  My concern is that everything is going to bounce around and get caught in the various gizmos near the ceiling.  Thank you in advance, Andrew

I bought motorcycle bungee cargo nets from ebay and they work great.  Cheap. Flexible hook locations/size. And they look like they belong in a cargo hold.

We have a CTLSi and I would say no, the standard size carry on will not fit.  In my experience, duffel bags (or other soft sided bags) are the only thing that will fit.

I do.

I figured, thanks... I haven't put anything back there yet.  The net is a very good idea, too much going on back there to risk a bump.
