Here in Vancouver, it is often lower middle class women. Is it a subtle way to signal they have children or simply that the car is on lease and can't be scratched in any way?

PS:. In Vancouver, you might encounter that deviant driving a yellow Lambo with a cargo box.
Never seen it on a truck in Southern Ontario. We use Leer and ARE caps for covered storage. I remove it off our SUV when not in use, must be what Lenny said and lack of home storage in Vancouver.

Do you think I will still get the $30 coupon for in-store pickup?

Anyone have experience with the Sportrack boxes?

SportRack Horizon Cargo Box is on sale as well. A bit cheaper than the Thule alpine and while not quite as long, it's taller and wider. Might be more versatile for me.

I just bought the Sportrack Vista XL. Initially wanted to buy the Thule, but this one will fit my hatchback, it's 18cu ft and only 329$. Had to specifically ask for the 30$ GC or they wouldn't have given it.. so be sure to ask!

If not, refund and repurchase on the spot.

Thanks. I was just curious because i want the extra storage for roadtrips instead of having all the luggage in the car. But i plan on selling my Kia Soul for another car next year.

Thule bought SportRack in 2006, it's their budget brand and a different composite. SportRack is more textured so less glossy, heavier, and less flex, more wind noise. You can see the differences up close in store.

Anyone have any experience with the Rola crossbars? My Kia dealer has them regularly $471 but on for $401. Seems a little pricey but still cheaper than the Thule. Any advice?

Try community reviews on etrailer, that's where I usually check as reference for branded vehicle accessories because they are so many kinds, even within Thule.

Sometimes you just need some extra cargo space. There's someone here who drives their winter beater R8 with a Thule box.

I have had a set of Rola bars on my Mazda 5 for the last 3 or 4 years and have not had any issues. They had a lower profile than the OEM bars and were much cheaper. Ordered them through the states and had a relative bring them during a visit. Installation was pretty straight forward if I remember correctly. Once installed, post and bars were solid. No wiggling.

Btw, I also purchased the large Convoy back then and it has been a good investment. A must if going camping. Very light and easily attached and removed by one person.

Thanks OP for sharing this deal.

I bought a THULE Large this morning. I plan to use it primarily with my 2018 Subaru Crosstrek, but also would like to have the option to use it with my wife's 2013 Toyota Sienna minivan. Should I go for a universal cross bar that can fit both vehicles, or buy separate cross bars for each vehicles?

As per my research 40.5" cross bars fit Crosstrek, but Sienna requires 53" cross bars.

Can these cargo boxes carry say... Two 20-23' full luggages?
