I bought this to go on the top of a 2007 Tahoe for a long road trip with 5 adult passengers, requiring us to have the third seat up which limits our luggage space. I can get three 22-24 in carry on's in this unit with room for a few smaller packages.
It was easy to assemble and fit on the stock Tahoe roof rack with some minor adjustment.
The thumb nuts and mounting hardware take up some valuable room inside the cargo box and I think this could be designed a little better.
When mounted on the Tahoe, if you mount the box in the center of the roof it is a long reach over the top to get the luggage in or to tighten the mnounting nuts. I plan to use it mounted toward the curd side of the car.
The unit is designed so that when the car is moving, air pressure will help force the top down on the bottom making an effective seal. There is Foam weatherstripping between the top and hte bottom to keep the elements out.
AutoAnything was good to do business with, They had the lowest prices and free shipping. The goods arrived in just a few days and in good condition.
Overall I would consider this product a good value and customer service was very good.
