Hi all, considering one of these roof storage systems for my Pathfinder.
They start at around $200 up to $800.
Interested in the
360L Universal Car Roof Rack Luggage Box Pod Cargo Carrier - White.....from Oz Auctions on Ebay.
Any comments appreciated.
Mike.

I'm not familiar with the brand you have mentioned but I spent months researching our purchase and it really came down to two brands which we thought gave us the best bang for buck. Thule and Yakima. We ended up with a Thule Atlantis 200 which we think is brilliant, lots of room for storage, very aerodynamic and looks great.

Your question seems to based around brand and price with no mention of functionality.

How you access your pod is a key issue to consider. Side opening or from the back. Either way how do you get enough height to safely lift in and remove the items. Rear opening for most 4WD means you can stand on the rear step. Side opening means finding a step ladder, standing on the seats or a wheel perhaps. Next is load capacity and what that means to your roof loading which will for a Pathfinder is between 68-86kg including roof bars

Based on experience we recommend the brand names such as Thule, Rhino etc

Regards

Rob
