Great Rooftop Carrier
We bought this for our cross-country move to add some extra storage to our Subaru Forrester. We had no trouble installing this carrier; instructions were clear and straightforward. The top withstood high winds while open, which I thought it might not. It also holds quite a bit more than I expected it to as well. This is the first car carrier I have used and it held up very well during our long trip in late winter (California to Kentucky). The only trouble or problem we had with the carrier is that you can't really access the contents without a step ladder. So we put only things in the carrier we wanted to travel with us and not the movers, but things we really didn't need to get to until we arrived at our destination. It is not impossible to access, but really not convenient without a step ladder. I am 5.4 and my husband is 5.10, so maybe if we were taller, it might have worked easier. We even took the carrier through the car wash and it didn't budge. So, overall, this was just the thing we needed to help with our move and for the price of two hundred and something with 75 dollars shipping it did the trick. I was skeptical as some of the other brands were lots more expensive. We are really glad we got this one!!

SportRack SR7018 Roof Cargo Rack
The new cargo box was in great condition when we received it. I had to drill a couple of holes towards the back end of the cargo box because the cargo box didn't fit on the Honda CRV and was crushing my radio antenna. After moving it up about 6 inches it seems to work well and doesn't cover the sunroof. I had my wife go to work and leave the car outside with the cargo carrier on. Very little water got into the carrier, which I am sure will be mitigated after putting the black sticker over the holes that I did not use. So far it is a great product and looks like it can hold a lot of the items we won't be able to fit into the car for our vacation in May. Thanks, Chris.

We got one of these for extra storage on trips and we love this Cargo box. It's just given us a lot more room in the car.

Sport Rack SR7018 Vista XL Cargo Box
The product box was heavily damaged, so much so the driver had to take the cargo box out of it to get it off the truck! In spite of this, the box was intact and I was pleased with the overall size and the keys worked to lock it. The directions were simple, however it is definitely a two person job to get it on top of the car roof. I would recommend this product for a friend.

The product was very good quality, just wasn't what I needed. Be careful when buying a universal cargo box as this product did not fit the Thule cross bar system installed on a Mazda CX-9! Returned to CARiD which was an easy process. Thanks.
