Hey All,

Having a hard time deciding between a roof box or a basket. Anybody lean more one way than the other?

I had a snowboard rack on my old Mazda CX-7 but I’m looking to gain some additional storage now. Pros? Cons?

I’d be primarily using it for hauling snowboards in the winter and camping gear in the summer.

Thanks and cheers!

Never had a basket, but I have a Yakima Showcase 15 storage box that I've fit 4 snowboards in with bindings and a few bags. Haven't used it with my PP yet but my last vehicle (Ford Escape) had less internal cargo space so not sure if I'll need it yet. The only con is that it's really heavy for lugging and putting on-top of a vehicle but it adds a lot of storage and has dual openings with locks and is solid. No issues with it. I once had a fabric storage box/bag whatever-you-call-it that was shredded by heavy winds. So whatever you get, don't get one of those!

My focus would be on easy installation and removal.
These things can create a lot of wind noise and if it's only used a few times, make it easy to store it in the garage.
