Only downside is that it only opens from one side (passenger) - Convoy model
Not a deal breaker imo

It'll fit. I put it on my 2008 Impreza hatchback and there's lots of room.

CT has 90-day return policy.
If they refuse price adjust, buy at the cheaper price, return with old receipt.
Do you know if they typically require you to bring the item with you when you "return" and re-buy it? It's kind of a pain to load up and bring there.

You just buy the same item if they have it in stock and come back to return counter and show old receipt. If they don't have it in stock then go to another CT, they will accept receipt from other CT stores.
You can also first try to politely ask if they can price adjust with just your receipt.

How do you store this seasonally? Or do you just keep it on the car even when it's empty?

If you live in Ottawa area, the 1st Alpine is on sale at Buckingham, QC location at 50% off now. ($300) Just that location though.
Shows regular price when selecting this store.

T.O.
We've been using a Thule Force for the past 9 ski seasons and I would highly recommend buying the dual side version. Makes things much easier if you end up parking in very tight or low roof garages. I would also suggest NOT buying the Alpine versions of the Thule boxes unless you only intend to carry skis. The extra height of the standard boxes allows us to also throw our boots in. Check the internal box length against the length of your longest set of skis and add 10cm or so for margin of error.

If you live on Vancouver Island you keep it on your car all year. That is how they tell you're a local.

I put two hooks on my wall in the garage and used a broomstick and fed it through the 2 front mounts/claws under the Thule box. I then just hang the box flat on the wall using the broomstick and the 2 hooks.

I have a piece of wood I screwed to the wall for other stuff (it has spots for things like snow shovels, bike racks, etc). Take it off the car, hook the attachment points to the wood.

I try not to leave it on my car for a few reasons:
0. My car has decent interior capacity (A4 wagon), so I don't usually need the additional space.
1. I don't have aero bars, so they're not quiet generally (not that aero bars are silent either, but a lot better)
2. The box itself is loud when moving at highway speeds; when it's full, it's considerably better.
3. It pretty significantly impacts fuel economy at highway speeds; I have a Force, and it seems to cut about 4 MPG off my fuel economy.
4. It looks pretty stupid on my car
5. It comes off pretty quickly; I take the bars off my factory rails, with the box, in about 3 minutes.

If you're needing additional capacity in your car pretty rarely, they're really nice. Car might look silly when it's attached, but (IMO) no sillier than if you drive a minivan/crossover normally, and WAY less of a PITA than a trailer.
One who is offended by truth, has no place among those who seek wisdom.
