Purchased this for my 2011 RAV4. This is the perfect size for this vehicle. When place as far back on the roof (right in front of radio antenna), the cargo box stops right before the curvature of the roof starts going downward at the front of the vehicle. I believe this minimized air getting caught under the cargo box and creating drag. While driving, I haven't noticed anything different. Fuel efficiency is about the same. I am sure this would be different if there was some cross-wind, but nothing of that happening in NYC during this review. The weight of the box is very light. Easy enough to be picked up by myself. Installation was quite easy, 15-20 minutes to install with no additonal hardware required. Since the RAV4 has a hatchback door, it was easy enough to stand on the rear bumper to access the cargo box. The construction is OK. The shell is made of semi-hard plastic. There is definitely flex to it. This product is not made of hard plastic, but I am sure something like that would have cost twice, maybe three time more. For the cost and size of this cargo box, it is a good buy. I was lucky enough that this box fits perfectly for the RAV4. I wish we could upload photos here and I would show how aesthetically pleasing it looks on my RAV4.
X-Cargo XL - great price, disappointed with durability, wind noise and wind turbulence. I bought this product due to the price and reviews. However, I am disappointed. Driving while it is empty is NOT an option. It bangs against the roof at speeds over 60mph (I had to do this because I purchased out of town due to availability locally). Shakes a lot at almost any speed. Even when full, noticeable wind noise in cabin of vehicle, not too bad but I can definitely tell it's up there due to the wind noise and drag. Lid is very cheaply made, flexes a lot when opening. Haven't taken an actual trip yet over 100 miles but planning on one soon. I do not have high hopes I'll be satisfied with this unit and will likely return if a longer trip, loaded, does not yield a change in my review.
We purchased this rooftop carrier for use on my 2016 Chevy Equinox. We used this along with a Thule cargo hitch carrier we already owned. The Sears X-Cargo roof carrier worked well overall. We bought it because the price was reasonable and we knew we wouldn't be using it that often so I did not want to buy one of the more expensive versions. Installation was actually very easy. We were able to fit three folding camping chairs, 3 sleeping bags, a screen tent, and a couple bags of dirty clothes on the return trip home. I did have some issues with the lock. At least four or five times I had a hard time getting it to open correctly. Then other times it opened perfectly. I'm not really sure what the issue was. Overall we were happy with this purchase as it was inexpensive and allowed us to carry some of the items for camping easier.
Fit fine on my Equinox and was easy to pick up at Sears. Way to big to ship!
Installation was a little goofy but solid product. Little noisy on car but as expected. Unbeatable price.
Haven't put it on the roof yet. But it looks like it's just the right size for what I need. Happy to write a review after I use it.
Works great! Looks great! Great value easy to install.
Great universal car top carrier that fits perfectly on our Subaru Legac,y and is very roomy. Easy to install and can be removed just as easily when it's not needed!
I'm quite satisfied with this roofbox. It's not the best quality, it's a little bit flimsy feeling and makes a noticeable noise when I'm driving on the highway. But for the price it was a great deal. I haven't had any problems with it and I took it on a 9000 mile road trip.
