Works perfect with some modifications

I was a bit reluctant to purchase this cargo carrier after reading some of the negative reviews, and even more worried when I first installed mine and saw it making the same nerve-racking 'oscillations' that eventually destroy the carrier that others were talking about. However, with a very simple modification, this cargo carrier works perfectly and is dramatically more stable, so I thought I would share. The fix is to add two 4 ft slotted angle bars inside: (here's a link to the part: http://www.homedepot.com/h_d1/N-5yc1v/R-202183536/h_d2/ProductDisplay?catalogId=10053&langId=-1&keyword=slotted+angle&storeId=10051) that span from the front to the back of the box, attached where the rack bracket bolts fasten, and done on both the left and right sides. So for about $30 more, it is signficantly stronger, and even doubles as a rail for hooking bungee cords or other tie downs to secure the load inside. After this modification, I can now drive at freeway speeds, even with an empty box without worry and very little if any vibration. I wonder why they don't just manufacture these this way... So in summary, if you're slightly handy and are willing to make this modification, this is an excellent cargo carrier for the price and I'd recommend it. If you'd rather not have to make modifications, you may want to try a different carrrier.

Don't Waste Your Money

Heading down the highway at 70 miles per hr with other motorists honking & pointing at the roof and then we can see our shadow and the rooftop carrier is bouncing up and down. Emptied it at the next rest stop into the trunk and attempted to finish the trip but the empty carrier was now worse on the highway. Stopped again and strapped it down with nylon tow straps for the rest of the trip. We will return it to the nearest Sears before driving the 400 miles home.

I owned his unit for 5 years. Well made. It holds a lot of cargo. Only problem is when the cargo shifts, the lock is difficult to open.

The Xtreme Car Top Carrier was very handy on our recent trip. We travel with 6 people in our vehicle so the extra room was necessary to travel comfortably.
The carrier seemed to travel well with little wind resistance and little noise.
It was easy to install although once the holes are selected for installation, the dots to cover the unused holes should then be installed and NOT wait to the last step. This would prevent any water from entering the carrier. We went through a monsoon or so it seemed and had very little water inside of the carrier.
The only problem we had was when our luggage slid forward while traveling and we had trouble locking the cover. Even though the lid seemed to fit tight, make sure your luggage is not preventing the lid from closing properly. We wasted about 30 minutes trying to lock the lid before we move the luggage back 1 inch and everything was fine.
I would recommend this carrier.

Works great and is very secure

We like how you can easily take it off and on again, after the first initial setup *the first setup took 25 minutes. After that it is like one minute to take off and on if you slide out the silver pieces correctly.

Great Carrier, Exactly What I Needed

|

After reading some reviews of this carrier rattling and being noisy, I was reluctant to buy it and did so mostly because I could store it under my crawl space. I just got back on a family vacation from Asheville, NC to Hilton Head Island, SC and had absolutely no problems with this carrier. There were no noises, or rattling whatsoever and everything stayed dry through light showers. The mounting hardware is also set up very well so you only have to assemble it once and can leave the parts attached to simplify every installation afterwards. The reason I only gave 4 stars is because it is a little difficult to fasten one side to the roof of the car because the carrier only opens from one side. Based on your vehicle, you may want to carry a small step stool with you to load/unload as well. Overall, I'm very happy with this purchase and look forward to using it in the future.

great item, bad istallation

|

Needing additional space while vacationing, we turned to Sears for a carrier. The product was great but, we had a poor install. The bolt was broken off during install and the luggage carrier came loose while driving the on interstate, which thank goodness we were able to avoid an accident until we arrived home . There was also some dampness inside from the rain so it is not water tight or rain proof.

Very well made.

|

Drove many days thru the rain. We had all the items inside enclosed in plastic bags. When we reached our location there was a little water inside the container but not enough to do any damage even if the close were not in plastic bags. Would purchased the team again.

Great find

|

We had ordered a Thule top on the internet and found out 2 days before our trip that it was cancelled due to the size of the item they could not ship it. I went online and found out that our local Sears store carried them. We absolutley love it! It afforded us plenty of room for our trip and was easy to use. It did not cause any air noises that you hear with many toppers.

Too Much Wind noise

|

Had to drill holes to fit my Lexus RX330 with factory rack even though it was supposed to fit.. Somewhat flimsy but put two angle irons inside and that helps..

In addition, too much wind noise at 60-65 mph.

X-CARGO XTREME

|

Purchased two days after "Black Friday" Extreme challenge to install the two furthest nuts-you'll need two people to mount and assist with securing the cargo-carrier. Traveled from Kentucky to Va and realized our clothes were partially wet as the front lip wasn't tightly closed, also due to the rain water had sipped thru the unused holes for the screws which contributed to our clothes being wet. Returning due to the the extreme challenge of securing the unit-especially the inner screws.

Worked great no problems; quiet; easy to operate; not too heavy

|

I have this installed on a Jetta Sportwagen (a small-medium sized wagon) on VW load bars set at 30" on center. On a taller vehicle you may need a ladder for tightening the bolts but I managed to do it in the Sears parking lot standing on the door sills. Advise reading and understanding the quick connect feature such that you can pre-assemble them onto the carrier on the ground before lifting the carrier onto the vehicle. That would have saved me time and effort. Suggest bringing a tape measure so you can tell which set of holes to use. You may need two people for putting on and taking off of vehicle as there are metal brackets and bolts that dangle down when not fastened to the load bars. After use I am storing the carrier in a shed from the ceiling with straps holding it where the load bars go.

I drove about 70 miles at mixed speeds, mostly highway, and found the carrier to be quiet and not to vibrate or otherwise seem to be a problem.

Fully loaded with cargo we drove about 300 miles at mostlly highway speeds and here too the carrier was quiet and did not vibrate. It was hard to tell it was there actually. Fuel mileage suffered a few MPG, as expected.

The hinges and mechanical features were good, gave no trouble and were easy enough to operate. The feature where you can't remove the key unless it is locked is a good one. When loading for the return trip had to adjust the position of something to not interfere with the locking mechanism.

Overall, very pleased with the purchase. It is clearly well engineered and nicely made. Thought it was a good value for the price paid too.

Very Bad Product

This luggage box is very flimsy and would gap open and start flapping while we were going down the interstate at 70 mph. Very disappointed!!
