Good Storage Solution, OK Build

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.

Disappointed

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.

WELL, ES CARGO

excellent product for the price. a bit flimsy, but it performs as promised. lightweight and easy installment for one person. easily fits two "check-in" sized bags and one "carry-on" sized bag with plenty of room for knick-knacks. hinges and lock work fine after three road trips of 500 miles or more, but can see them malfunctioning at any time. if you want a more durable, hard-shelled cargo box, with the passenger-side load, pay the extra $300-$400 for the name brand boxes. but if you want a significant upgrade from a cargo bag and have enough space to store it, then go with this product for fractions of the cost.

I would buy this Sears product again

|

Onsite team was courteous. We were a bit frustrated since the store inventory showed they had some in stock both on the internet and when we went in person. When we got there we were relegated to buy the floor model.

Good value considering price and storage capacity.

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.

Great product but be sure it installed on your car.

|

Great except that they don't tell you that you need to have bars on the front and back, not side to side, so I had to buy special bars to get it installed and I took over an hour and a half to get it done.

Frustrated at the store.

|

The online experience was o.k. The product was o.k. It was extremely time-consuming and frustrating in picking up my purchase at the store, and I was the only one in there at the time.
