    I bought my Rocket Box 16 in July 2015. I have a 2004 Chevy Tahoe and when the family and I go on trips the poor Tahoe is stuffed with little room left. The biggest issue was my youngest daughters jogging stroller. We went on a trip and was over having to load and unload the truck. So we went to the local ski shop and bought the Skybox. I have not regretted it since. The stroller fits with room for a whole lot more. It made traveling easier. Instead of having to fold up the third row seating to play tetris with all the luggage, I would only have to fold up one side so I can now separate the kids. One in the middle row and one in the third row. No fighting anymore and that in itself was worth buying the Skybox. Now fast forward June 2016. We have not used the Skybox since last summer. It has stayed mounted on top of the Tahoe. Not sure if it was the heat or what but the rear hinge got distorted. The Skybox still works its just a little finicky to close. Sent a quick email to Yakima and Albert dropped a replacement in the mail and emailed me a conformation. I would recommend Yakima 100% to anyone.

    Bought the Skybox 16 to fit our Freestyle, and it performed perfectly. Almost no additional wind noise with the Whispbars, swallowed up a huge amount of gear, and did not affect handling or MPG a bit. It's just as good on the Explorer with factory crossbars that replaced the Freestyle a couple of years later. A first-rate solution.

    I have the Skybox 16 on a 2012 Toyota Rav4. I don't have hatch clearance issues because the hatch opens horizontally. This box is great, it barely affects my MPG, maybe .5 miles per gallon decrease on the highway. As for noise, the front of the box sits directly above my sunroof so I can slightly hear it, but if you close the sunroof cover/shade you can't hear a thing. No noise with the windows open though. As for usage, this box is amazing. I mainly use it for skis and snowboards, I was able to fit 4 snowboards, 3 pairs of skis, a pair of ski boots and some other softshelled gear in it on a trip this winter. The lid is very stiff and opens easily with one hand. I love the locking system, the locks operate smoothly and there's a nice reassuring click when you close the box, as well as not being able to take your key out unless it's locked properly. Installation is very easy once you have your crossbars at the appropriate distances. Takes me about 4-5 minutes to casually install the box, and even less time to remove it. I'm also able to remove it easily by myself, haven't tried to install it myself yet. For $500 it's the best box out there in my opinion, and yes I've used Thule boxes before (I prefer the Skybox over Thule for many different reasons). Oh, and it's also one of the best looking boxes out there.

    Bought for Mini Countryman. Fits perfectly on factory bars (Thule I think?), no real impact on MPG, very quiet. Tons of room...in my mind it's much easier to spend less than $500 on doubling cargo capacity than thousands on buying a larger car that you only really need a few times per year.

    Fit my 2014 Explorer with Factory bars. Lift-gate works with Skybox on. Looks good on my sport model. My MPG did not suffer and wind noise was minimal. Extremely easy to install, in fact I put it on by myself in the store parking lot. It held more gear than I thought it would. Drove through rain on my trip from Texas to Florida... no worries. Very satisfied (The old saying "you get what you pay for".. this thing is rock solid)

    I have had 2 other boxes in the past that did not fit my Subaru Outback well. When I would open the trunk it would it the box.
    Not anymore - this one fits perfect.
    I can also put a ton of stuff up there!
