Car roof-top carrier - soft sided? hard sided? Wow are they expensive!
I drive a sedan with no luggage rack on the roof and the wife drives an SUV with a luggage rack. We will be traveling 14 hours for some much needed R&R in a few weeks. With this long of a trip I would prefer to take the sedan as it rides much nicer than the SUV and gets better gas mileage. But another factor is cargo space. This was never an issue on past road trips until recently with all the stuff required for a toddler.
So I have heard mostly bad reviews about roof-top soft sided cargo carriers but their price point and ability to be collapsed are hard to beat. Has anyone had success with this type (please include manufacturer/model)? Do I need a luggage rack on the roof?
