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!
Great product and service
4/10/18- If you have a 2018 Santa Fe w factory installed racks, this product WILL NOT FIT even though their chart says it will. I even called X-Cargo to make sure I was interpreting their chart right and they told me it would fit. That's not even the worst part. When I tried to return it to Sears they came up w everything in the book to try to not give me a refund. I showed them the email from X-Cargo that confirmed this wouldn't fit my vehicle and that their chart was wrong. First, I was accused of using it and then trying to return it, then told I'd be charged a 50% restocking fee, then told they couldn't refund it bc I didn't have a paper receipt even though the purchase was done through Sears.com. I got my full refund back though. I'm done w Sears and their unbelievable crappy service!
It works.....holds stuff on the roof of your car.
perfect fit on my 2017 explorer
Great product. Does exactly what it needs to do and adds tons of space for low cost. Sears had it in stock at their local shop too, guess I got lucky
