Thule Boxter roof box - anyone?
 
Looking at getting a box top carrier. Anyone have experience with the Thule boxter? Saw one in person (though the owner was not there). Damn good looking aero box with 16 cu ft. of storage. Opens both sides too. Only downside is price - kinda spendy at $800.

Good feedback...no I have not seen one on a WK2, should have made that more clear. It was on a MBZ GL(K?)...the Lexus LX470 equivalent. It filled out that ute pretty good. Might be a bit longish on the WK2. It's 81" long as I remember. Factory crossbars might be problematic in distributing the load.

But it would ruin the view from your panoramic sunroof.

Had one for 9 months or so. Pretty quiet on the road and looks decent. Using Thule aero feet and xbars. Got a great deal on amazon sold by amazon. Around 30% off.

I was back and forth with Thule many times to make sure I got a box that would fit. My big question was clearance with the rear hatch open - - and after going through all the specs, the Atlantis 1600 was the largest box that would work. Even then, it required installing the sharkfin antenna - - which has been terrific, btw.

I put the box on the mopar crossbars - - very solid, and looks terrific.
