Question Sedona light truck use

Hi. I'm new to the forum. I'm considering a new '09 or '10 Sedona to replace my broken down old pickup. Something called an LX LWB (Long Wheel Base model). Considering the "clunkers" program this may be the best time to buy. I have a '07 Sonata that I am very pleased with. Unfortunately the Entourage is defunct but the Sedona looks fine. The Sedona appears to be to mini-vans what the Sonata is to sedans. That's just fine by me.

I want to use the mini-van as a truck. The goal is to remove the seats, carpet & interior panels to haul building materials. Is this possible? Has anyone put a 4x8 sheet of plywood or drywall through the back door? Will it fit? Will the rear door close with 4x8 sheets on the floor? Or laying on the fender? Or standing up? I'm trying to convince myself that I can really replace a work truck with a mini-van.

Thanks.

I have an 04 sedona that wouldn't work for that. It's not the model with the extra space behind the back seat and it's also not wide enough. I have an 07 odyssey that is big enough for what you need but the new sedona with the extra space behind the seat etc. may be bigger. I would take a tape measure with me to check it.
