    Will the rain barrel fit in my car? Yes, your barrel will easily fit in the backseat of most 4-door sedans or hatchbacks. Make sure your vehicle is ready to receive a barrel either in the back seat or trunk by clearing away large items or laying down car protection if desired. Barrels nest together and can fit in a stack of up to 2 into the backseat of an average car or the trunk of most hatchbacks. Barrel dimensions are approximately 43″ in height and 23″ in diameter and each barrel weighs 16 pounds when empty.
