Default roof baskets?

are there any roof baskets that will the ls400 of any model year? i do alot of family traveling so the trunk space still isnt enough. I believe I recall seeing a UCF10 with a roof basket but I cant find the picture now.

There are plenty of roof mount carrier systems. The readily available systems with multiple configuration options will be from Thule and Yakima. There are others but these two have long history among the roof type systems.

It's been years since I've seen roof racks for the LS from companies in the U.S. but here is a thread showing that my Yakama Rack fits my 00 LS pretty well even if the mounts are from a Honda CRX I had in the 1980's:

Would an alternative to be to change how you carry your stuff and reduce how much you take with you? Maybe use soft luggage you can "squish"? I've carried four rolling airline sanctioned maximum size allowed carry-on bags in the trunk of my 00 LS400 with plenty of room to spare.

Roof racks and luggage pods can cause an amazing amount of drag and wind noise - not pleasant on long trips.
