Reviewers liked that it is very spacious. One person had said they were able to store 2 pieces of luggage that were easily over 20 inches each with a small duffle bag. It was able to accommodate everything quite nicely.

Many liked the price for the space and security you get. Other cargo boxes that have the same product offering sells at 2 or even three times the price of this model. Don’t let the low price fool you. This is a great alternative. When the product arrives, it does look a little flimsy, but when it is attached to the crossbars, you soon see that it is a good quality product.

Some people forget that this box is attached to the vehicle because it does not make any noises, even though you encounter wind. This will definitely solve some of the storage problems you currently face, especially if you have a family to think about.
