Default Cargo Box

The family and I will be taking several road trips this summer to Montana and Florida and I was considering buying a cargo box to install on the top of the LX. Anyone have any experience with cargo boxes to make a recommendation on what a good brand is? My wife said when she used to live in Colorado she would see Thule a lot. Any opinions are appreciated. Thanks.

I have used Thule kayak and bike racks on my LX and I must say they are top quality. They are somewhat modular in design and look good. Quality is outstanding. Check out their website.

Great. Thanks. I was checking out the website last night and their products do seem high quality. The cargo boxes look very aerodynamic as well.

I've used a Thule Atlantis 2100 on our '10 LX for 3 years. When mounted as far back as possible it is so quiet you don't even know it's there. And the 21 cu feet of room is great for skis or extra cargo room. I highly recommend it.

Thanks for the rec. I'm going with Thule after researching it. Just have to decide how big. 16-17 cu feet vs 20-21.
