I’ve had some good buying advice this year from the TT massive … long may it continue!
Talk to me about roof boxes.
We’re getting to the point where the kids have too much stuff, and as i have mentioned in other threads, the boot on the X1 isn’t as big as you would think. Especially as we still need a pushchair for the little one, which takes up a lot of room. though i’d probably only bring the crappy stroller now if we were going away to save on space. The main pushchair is blimmin huge.
Don’t know whether to get something smallish and affordable now, or do i push the boat out a bit and invest in the future as we’re clearly going to need a bigger one in a few years time.
What is the real life difference between say a 400l and 500l? There’s a £200 difference, which seems a lot for 100l, but is it one of things that due to the shape, the reality is you can actually cram a tonne more stuff in?
Any good websites or brands to consider? I know of Thule, and this website has now opened me up to Hapro. Apparently 2 of the big 3, with the other being KAMEI.
Are cheaper, say Halfords ones, going to be a total pile of flimsy, noisy, heavy crud as expected?! My gut tells me to go with the continental Europeans on this, as they love making this sort of thing!
Any other thoughts / horror stories / things to consider?
