This evening was the time to answer that age-old question:
Will it fit???
As you will see, there wasn't any too much room. The rear gate's opening is smaller than the interior width.
But it got in. The next issue was how far up one had to move the front seats to accomodate the two-metre (78") length. By moving them a bit, and by removing the bottom six inches of my two legs, everything's now okay.
In response to my plea, and the only response, Jon Main sent a couple of photos of where he makes his home, a village called St. Victor la Coste (Gard), in the south of France. You get to see some relatively uncommon snow.

We could accommodate perhaps three more students eager to spend a week painting in the French countryside. If you want to be one of them, hop to it!
