I was shocked at the size when the associate brought this item out to my van. With the four back seats down and taken out of the box, it barely fit in the back. One person installation onto our existing factory Honda roof rack was simple with bolts and nuts (plastic wing nuts). It is just out of the way of our sun roof and back hatch so it's perfect in my opinion. I haven't put anything in it but did drive around town with it installed, I honestly didn't know it was there. No noise, no noticeable drag. Storage could be an issue if you don't have somwhere for it but this gives you a bunch of room on your car/truck/van. I am looking forward to using this for our 13 hr drive on vacation with 7 people. This will add siginificant space! With a few discounts I scored this for just over two bills ($206 to be exact) and it seems like a fantastic deal based on the other models I looked it. Recommend!
The ad states that you can 'sit back and enjoy the ride knowing that all your precious cargo is shielded from the elements.' We sat back thinking that the rain outside our car would not be inside the car carrier... we were WRONG. Your items will get wet if it is raining outside and you are moving. Just beware!
We bought this to take a road trip from Arizona to lower Texas. It was able to fit quite a bit and held up under the long trip.
I purchased this item with the expectation of picking up a Sears store for *************... but after they took my $$$ they told me it was out of stock. I was told in a chat that the item was not available at the store and would need to have it shipped for ($200+ dollars)... now they are holding my money for 3 or 4 days. Thanks for the really BAD customer services!
I've been using this cargo box for more than 10+ years and have nothing but great things to say about it. I've recommended to as many family and friends and have not had any complaints from them either. I've recently re-purchased this to replace a very old, used, and abused one. Please don't discontinue this model. YOU CAN'T improve AWESOME!.
Easy to install over roof rack cross bars. No vibrations like older Sears model. Still using older model Turtle shell bought over 20 years ago!
After months of research and comparisons, we purchased the X-Cargo Sport 20 for our 2012 Toyota Highlander, and the 20 cu. feet served our storage needs quite well for our drive from Texas to Montana for a family of 6. Material, build and finish is well done and comparable to the other cargo boxes that are 3 times the price of the X-Cargo Sport, and the lock keeps contents secured, giving you piece of mind when you have to leave your car at the parking lot. We drove through strong winds and rain in Colorado, and Montana, and our contents stayed dry. The wind noise is present, but not disturbing. The box works best when the heaviest cargo is stored in the space between where the crossbars attach to the box and will prevent from bobbing at higher speeds. An outstanding box, theres no need to buy the overpriced cargo boxes, the X-Cargo fit our vehicle beautifully, thanks to the low profile roof rails.
