Rated 4 out of 5 by CROCK Great carrier for the price
Good carrier, used it to travel from CO to UT with no issues. Only improvement I'd suggest is more durable hinges, the current ones are plastic.

by HankJr Same carrier as more expensive one with another name.
Exactly what I was looking for with a much cheaper price at PepBoys.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JM65 Excellent Product for Price
I did a lot of research on roof top carriers prior to buying. I was looking for something that would fit on my Chevy Equinox, was reasonably inexpensive, and didn't take an afternoon of assembly as many of the reviews accompanying various models had indicated. Priced at $219 online with a 25% discount for ordering online plus a $20 rebate kept this unit under $180 after taxes. Picked unit up at the store and paid at the store as well. It came completely assembled, and after removing from the box, it fit perfectly into the back of my vehicle. This unit is definitely not a Thule or one of the other high-end units, but I could not find another in this price range that was built as well as this and had the capacity. I lost about 2 - 3 mpg on the highway and did very well traveling around 75+ mph on the interstates. Highly recommend if you are trying to stay around $200 on a rooftop carrier.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Worked well on trip
Price was considerably less than other similar carriers and it seemed a bit flimsy. I added a 1/4 inch thick 24 x 48 inch wood panel on the inside bottom to help distribute the cargo weight...but probably not needed, After a road trip of about 2500 miles on freeways in the southwest it held up with no problems. We have a 2016 Subaru Outback with roof rack crossbars that it fit onto well. It takes a little bit of installation time and the mounting brackets were included in the package. Very little road noise was noticed and most of our trip was at 65-75 MPH. I did buy a small step ladder to reach the cargo from the sides. The box opens from the rear but can't be reached from the back of my car so side access was required.

We were looking to replace a broken Yakima skybox we had for 8 years. This cargo box worked great for a 3,600 mile trip.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Jwea Good product at a good price
This worked well for me. It seems like a decent product at a good price. I did not notice any wind noise with it. I also drove through rain and the things inside stayed dry. It was easy to attach and remove.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MOtravelers No noise!
We just used this carrier for the first time on a cross country road trip (over 3,000 miles) and were very pleased with our purchase. It's easy to install, fits multiple bags, keeps them dry in rainy conditions and most importantly, rides quietly on top of our Honda Pilot. For the last few years, we've used a soft carrier that was very noisy on the highway. We're so glad we read the earlier reviews and purchased this one to replace it. Excellent value for the low price!

Rated 5 out of 5 by jeremyd Can't beat it
After looking at all the name brand carriers that run three to four times more expensive we decided to give this one a try and couldn't be happier with it. We drive a 2015 Rav4 so we didn't want one of the longer and skinnier carriers, this one fit within our roof area beautifully and allowed for a lot more storage than many of the other hard case options. With the factory installed crossbars from Toyota, it was difficult to install with the pre-drilled holes on the carrier, so I ended up drilling new holes slightly inside where the originals were for the back, the front holes were just fine. This was due to the thickness of the crossbars we have on, not due to incorrect placement of the original holes in the carrier. I think I could have gotten it installed with the original holes, but I preferred to have the heads screwed on the securing bolts with a few more threads so I moved them inward slightly. We have already made one trip of almost 1,500 miles with it and experienced extremely high winds. Everything stayed secure, and while I could feel a slight difference in driving, it was minimal and I only lost about 4 mpg overall from my normal freeway driving. I think the one thing that I was not as excited about was the fact that it opens from the rear instead of the side. With the new Rav4's, the hatch opens up instead of to the side so I have to open the side doors to climb up and load/unload. This was a simple fix with a little two step folding ladder that I just leave in the trunk now when we are using the cargo carrier. We were able to fit a pack n play crib, two large rolling duffle bags, a large plastic tote, and a few smaller misc. items in the carrier.

Love the fact that it's NOT a side opening carrier. No need to carry a ladder with us anymore! Easy to install. Lock seems secure enough, but it should have a secondary latch (or two) just for added safety/security. I'm looking for an aftermarket option.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jpd43 Plenty of room, easy open.
This 18CF roof top cargo carrier is perfect for my needs. Plenty of room, opens from single point at rear, does not block the rear hatch, and is stylish. Made of really nice heavy duty material. Rivets look a little weak but even if they fail, the material is such that it would be easy to replace them with screws and nuts. I also coated the u-bolts with a rubberized paint to prevent scratching the cross bars on the SUV.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mike321 Really liked this product
I purchased this product for a 700 mile round trip. I have a Mazda CX5 with the factory roof rails and crossbars. This cargo box mounted perfectly on top and stayed secure the whole trip. I noticed a slight decrease in MPG and a little extra wind noise, but that was expected. The construction is very light weight for its size and therefore is a little flimsy when open. However, once loaded and closed, I didn't notice any flexing that I would consider troublesome. I have to say, when I went to the store to pick it up, it was bigger than I initially expected. I'm pleased with the storage capacity and it didn't look out of place on a compact SUV, but I am glad I brought my pickup truck to transport it home. It fit in the 6' bed of the truck just fine. If you don't have a truck for transport, I might suggest you take advantage of the home delivery or install it on the intended vehicle in the parking lot. The only issue I found was with the mounting hardware. Some of the screws that secured the U bolts were difficult to turn, almost as if they were cross threaded (they weren't, I checked repeatedly). But, that's a small price to pay for such a great value. I am extremely pleased with the purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Geester Best bang for the buck!
I researched the name brand cargo carriers and was about to purchase one for over $500 but then I read a review on this one. Since I would only use it only a few times a year I thought this would fit my needs even it it did not last that long. I am so glad I purchased this instead. I only paid $180 and found it to be sturdy and quiet at even 70 mph on my Outback.
I holds a lot of gear too. Attaching to your vehicle would be easier with two people but I was able to do it myself using masking tape to hold the bolts and metal plates in place while I attached the nuts.
Very pleased and recommend it

Rated 5 out of 5 by DaggIndy Great Carrier
Purchased this carrier online and picked up at the local store. Process was quick and easy. The carrier is great. It installed securely on our Chrysler T&C roof rack. The carrier is very roomy. We were able to get 1 large and 3 medium suit cases, 2 beach chairs, beach umbrella, and 2 boogie board in with no problem. Unit did not create any noticeable noise on our 1620 mile round trip voyage. If our gas mileage was affected at all it was very minimal. This unit is a great value when compared to name brand carriers that are 2-3 times as expensive. I highly recommend this product

Rated 5 out of 5 by Walter3 Great carrier, good value
The Voyager was easy to install on my Forester's existing rails, but had to be off center because the u-bolts were a bit short to fit evenly over the wider ends of the crossbars. Even so, it was fully loaded with no impact on handling at highway speeds. Otherwise, it has the same capacity and features as Subaru's model but at a much more reasonable price. It also kept the contents dry.

My wife and I moved from Socal to Portland and used this to help transport some extra things in our car along the journey. It has a great amount of storage and fits on my car very easily. It was easy to set up and I imagine that it will be easy to take off when I need to. Great build quality and a great price.

I had been considering purchasing a carrier for some time but didn't want to spend $300 or more for a Thule or other "name brand".
This carrier worked well. We drove through 5 hours of medium to hard punding rain from Pittsburgh to South Carolina and everything remained dry. No extra noise or vibration noted with carrier on top of SUV.
For the 1-2 times a year I will use this carrier it was well worth what I paid (30% off).
Worth noting, label on box states it was shipped from Thule.

Rated 5 out of 5 by BIGCIF5 Great product at a great price
Bought this for our weekend sport tournaments to hold equipment and free up room in the back. The size was perfect for what we needed and it had more room than I expected. Also put it to the test as it rained one weekend and everything was dry inside. The mounting process to our 2012 Enclave was not too bad. The brackets could be a bit longer to make things easier, but it mounted rather quickly within 30 minutes. We are pleased with this cargo carrier and it is the only one we have owned so cannot compare to others, but it does the job.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CMad Excellent Rigid Car Top Carrier
- light weight
- aerodynamic, didn't introduce excessive wind noise
- large storage capacity: held double stroller, beach equipment and 3 small suitcase, with room to spare
- well made
- much cheaper than Thule and other high-end brands
- metal to metal mounting equipment: I coated with rubber to keep my aluminum rack from being scratched and worn
- lift supports take up a bit of room inside the carrier that you need to make sure your stuff is clear of when closing
Very pleased with this carrier. The price was perfect and it turned out to be a valuable addition to our road trip. Mounted this on our Honda Odyssey. Easy install and removal.

We have a Chevrolet Tahoe. There's not much cargo room when the third row is being used! This carrier was perfect! Very easy set up. I was worried after reading other reviews that there would be humming or rattling while driving, it never made a sound for us! The only worry I would have is garage parking. We didn't attempt it, but I'm sure it wouldn't fit in height through a parking garage. Great product, price and setup! Loaded it w sleeping bags(x4), suitcases(x2) , backpacks (x4) and various other junk.

From NY to FL no problems - traveled through temps in the single digits to those over 90. Speed limit was 70 mph. No noise. Used it on a Honda CRV. We did not drive through rain so I can't comment on that, but overall we are very happy with this carrier.
