What a great product. It actually gets used on our 4 door pickup allowing our 5 person family to travel without using up bed space. Always dry and super easy to install with 2 people (I have installed it alone, just not as easy on a pickup truck). No noise and very secure. Very happy with this purchase. 562515

Adds much needed space for long trips. Excellent construction. Like any other roof top carrier, the gas mileage does decrease but the trade-off is worth it. 293445

Review from a similar Yakima SkyBox in Roof Box


I have only used the cargo box three times since purchasing it about one year ago, but I am very happy with it. It nearly doubles our cargo space, and opens up the Subaru for the occasional guest. On our way up the coast last year, the cargo box was full, and mpg was reduced from 27 to 24 mpg. On the way home, the cargo box was nearly empty, and mpg bumped up to 26 mpg. Of course, some of the reduction from our normal 27 mpg is attributable to added weight, but we only lost 1 mpg due to the cargo box. It is very quiet at freeway speeds, and adds no noticeable roll or sway to the driving. I need to be careful when opening the car's rear hatch since the cargo box does interfere with it. Installing, locking, opening and closing the cargo box is very simple, and I love being able to access luggage from either side of the car. And it keeps the rain out! I plan to strap the cargo box onto our new Subaru Ascent next month and head cross country. Thank-you for an excellent product! 543516

Review from a similar Yakima SkyBox in Roof Box


The etrailer folks are outstanding! Great products, reviews, and customer service. This Yakima SkyBox 16 has plenty of room for skis and ski bags for my family of four. It will not fit my 205 length skis but my 188's do just fit. One of the clamps is very sticky and taking it off is a little frustrating because of that. Otherwise it has performed just as I needed it to. 311906

Have used the roof box for about one year on my 2014 Subaru Outback with great success. Box can be adjusted so that it doesn't hit tailgate. Once you get it adjusted, it goes on very quickly the second time. It easier to mount with two persons, but I have done it myself. Doesn't leak and I like access to either side. Pleased with the purchase. 392619

Well built. Easy to install. Can't tell it is up there when driving. The opening and locking mechanism could use some design improvement. While it is handy that it opens from both sides, the lock has trouble lining up well and is frustrating. 401234

Used for a cross country family road trip and it worked great. They just need a good method for storing it in between trips and perhaps rubber corners so it doesn't get scratched on the ground preparing to mount it on your car. 525494
