Comments about RocketBox Pro Rooftop Cargo Boxes:
Just returned from 600 mile trip in below zero temperatures to North Dakota - no issues. The product performed flawlessly. The Rocketbox was simple to adjust and attach to our SUV that already had a roof rack with crossbars. After you have the box adjusted to your vehicle, attaching/detaching is about a 3 minute process with the 4 large wingnuts - no tools needed. I could do it by myself easily using the vehicle running boards to stand on. The manufacturer suggests that loads be secured with tie-down straps inside the box but none were included. I just packed it solid with about 100 pounds of duffels and packs and nothing shifted during the trip. In this day and age we all have to deal with "idiot-proofing" and this product is no exception. The latches on each side of the box must be key-locked before the key can be removed from the lock. You can't leave the box unlocked when it's closed. The good news is that there is one on each side providing convenient access to all of the gear and attachment hardware.
