Looks good! Is that mounted using the T-slot or clamps? How is the noise (if any)?

Is there enough room next to it for a bike carrier (using the Mopar bars)?

I guess you can tell I'm looking for a cargo box to fit my OEM (clone) bars, alongside my existing Thule Criterium (clone) bike carrier. I would like to mount all using the T-track/slot (the bike carrier is already mounted that way).

My Atlantis 21 is awesome. I get 22 mpg all day on the highway with no noise.

Some of the new thule boxes are pretty sweet. looking at the Sonic L that looks like you have the ability to move the mount seats for the crossbar so that you don't have to bend the antenna.

Anyone notice degraded satellite radio or navigation with the box covering the antenna?

I have the Thule Boxter. When it is on it would bend the antenna (prior to shark fin). I noticed no decrease in radio reception unless I had a dense suitcase or material in the carrier.

Thinking into a thule cargo box for my ski trips...

I think I'm gonna go with the Sonic. One question I have though, WTH thule is charging premium for the new Hyper box? It looks just like the Sonic, but has a internal light! Why is it so more expensive? Does it has a better construction or anything like that? Is it worth the extra $300 or so?
