Does it include the straps

–Karen Deskin 11/16/2013 9:18:16 AM

Yes, this product includes the straps.

–Ronald 11/18/2013 9:39:13 AM

Does this need 2 or 4 roof racks?

–Jihan Minson 11/29/2013 8:53:36 PM

The RAINX Roof Top Cargo Bag has a total of eight tie-down points, two per side. The straps are secured to roof racks equipped with raised side rails and two crossbars. If this is not the best solution for you, please consider using the Rola Pursuit; Part number 59150, or using a hitch mounted cargo carrier.

–Ronald 12/2/2013 2:14:02 PM

Are the Waterproof Rooftop Cargo Carriers for rent?

–Ericka 12/4/2013 11:12:21 AM

You can purchase this product on line or in a UHaul Center. However, this product is not for rent. Thank you.

–Ronald 12/4/2013 12:20:32 PM

What if I don't fill it up? Does the cargo just slide around

–bj 12/15/2013 10:50:54 AM

If you tighten the straps tight enough, you may be able to reduce how much the cargo slides around if the carrier is not full. However, just like any type of carrier, box, or container ..... if they are not full the cargo within will have a tendency to move around.

–Ronald 12/16/2013 8:40:16 AM

As noted in the instructions provided above ... "For best results, fill spaces with soft items (e.g. pillows, jackets, blankets).

–Ronald 12/17/2013 9:49:53 AM

About how many suitcases fit in it

–Maria 12/16/2013 11:34:00 PM

That's hard to say because suitcases come in so many different sizes. However, this carrier will expand to a usable storage volume of 15 cubic feet.

–Ronald 12/17/2013 8:03:55 AM

I would like to know how many average size suit cases this would hold

–michele covington 2/28/2014 2:27:37 PM

After researching suitcases using Google, I concluded and estimated, an "average" size suitcase would hold approximately 4 cubic feet of clothes. U-Hauls #161040 Waterproof Rooftop Cargo Carrier holds 15 cubic feet. That means our carrier should hold 3.75 times as much as an average size suitcase.

–Ronald 2/28/2014 2:52:29 PM

The rate listed is that per day or week

–Buddy 3/3/2014 4:06:54 PM

The $59.95 is the purchase price. U-Haul does not rent this product. Thanks.

–Ronald 3/4/2014 8:19:44 AM

Is this just the cargo bag or does it include the roof top carrier piece?

–Theresa 3/17/2014 6:23:06 PM

only the Cargo bag and straps are included.

–Ronald 3/26/2014 1:24:35 PM

Can you simply use the cargo bag and straps to keep it on the car or do you have to have the bars or rails?

–Theresa 3/26/2014 2:02:40 PM

Roof racks are required. Thanks.

–Ronald 4/1/2014 9:59:48 AM

Can I use this product if I only have 2 racks? (Vertical)

–Angela 4/7/2014 1:30:06 PM

The RAINX Roof Top Cargo Bag has a total of eight tie-down points, two per side. The straps are secured to roof racks equipped with raised side rails and two crossbars. If this is not the best solution for you, please consider using the Rola Pursuit; Part number 59150, or using a hitch mounted cargo carrier.

–Ronald 4/7/2014 2:06:02 PM

Is there theft protection for the car top carrier?

–Kathy 4/22/2014 1:44:39 PM

No. Sorry. We do not offer theft protection on this product.

–Ronald 4/22/2014 1:57:49 PM

Can I throw in loose items (e.g. Clothes, books, DVD's) or is it just designed to carry suitcases? I know the risk of damaging my belongings. I don't have suitcases and I basically want to use as one.

–Alison 4/27/2014 10:13:39 AM

This carrier is not designed for carrying only suitcases. You can put loose items in this carrier. Please read the .pdf instruction file that is located on this page right below the image for clarification. Thanks.

–danny 5/13/2014 6:04:52 AM

–Ronald 6/4/2014 8:32:09 AM

How many large suit cases will it hold ?

–Calvin 6/3/2014 6:53:31 PM

That would depend on what you would consider "large". To make that determination for you, we would need to know the size of the suit cases. Please keep in mind the size of the carrier is: Basic size is 36”x 36”x 18”. With Packing, it will expand to a usable storage volume of 15 cubic feet.

–Ronald 6/4/2014 8:35:27 AM

–Debra 6/16/2014 9:28:33 PM

Sorry .... It does not lock.

–Anna 10/1/2014 4:33:47 PM

What is the impact on gas mileage? How easy is it to clean off bugs, etc.?

–Brad McCann 11/18/2014 7:04:48 AM

"To clean the 161040 rooftop cargo carrier use mild soap and water and dry by open air. Do not machine wash or dry. Although some research shows that a rooftop cargo carrier can increase gas mileage by roughly 8% on an SUV and 22% on a smaller 4 cylinder sedan, most customers have noticed about a 2-4 mpg difference when using a rooftop cargo carrier."

–Ronald 11/20/2014 11:17:57 AM

Can you take this one way and drop off at a different location?

–Autumn 12/8/2014 12:41:03 PM

This product is for sale but not for rent. You can buy online and have it shipped to your home, or you can buy it online and pick it up in a Uhaul Center. Either way it is a purchase, which is yours to keep, and not a rentable product. Thanks.

–Ronald 12/8/2014 12:59:32 PM

I have a ram pickup...can I put this in the back by the cab and secure it down

–Pam 2/22/2015 1:08:45 PM

Pam, the Waterproof Rooftop Cargo Carrier is designed to be secured to a vehicles roof rack system.

However, it will fit in the bed of your truck and you could safely secure it with a number of tie down methods and cargo stabilizers. To help with your cargo securing solutions, please see the Rope & Tie Down section of our website.

If you are looking for something more sturdy, the Twist Lock ProGrip Cargo Bar works great in stabilizing loads in truck beds, cargo vans and trailers. Thank you.

–Joseph 2/25/2015 10:07:13 AM

Do you offer a luggage carrier for rent?

–Kendra 3/1/2015 9:25:08 PM

Kendra, we do not offer any luggage carriers for rent. Sorry.

If you were looking for an affordable way to carry your luggage, one of our trailers would do the job. Thank you!

–Joseph 3/2/2015 1:47:58 PM

The side rails that came with my Honda CRV are not raised. Do you think it's possible to secure the cargo carrier with 4 straps on 2 cross rails?

–Maryann 3/16/2015 11:42:38 AM

Some of the Honda CRV roof rack systems are equipped with side rail rack rings that can attach to the Waterproof Rooftop Cargo Carrier's strap snap clips.

If the rack rings do not apply to your vehicle, the Rola™ Roof Mounted 2-Piece Steel Cargo Basket might be perfect for you.

–Joseph 3/19/2015 5:19:09 PM

Is this rent or own

–Kimberly 3/17/2015 12:04:11 PM

The Waterproof Rooftop Cargo Carrier is for purchase only!

–Joseph 3/19/2015 5:07:37 PM

My 2004 Honda CRV doesn't have raised side rails. The side rails lie nearly flush with the roof. If staps are tied tight will the 4 straps attached to the crossbars suffice?

–Maryann 3/17/2015 8:34:04 PM

Maryann, the instructions for the Waterproof Rooftop Cargo Carrier state "Use ONLY with all 8 straps connected to roof rack".

According to the instructions, 4 straps is not adequate. Thank you.

–Joseph 3/19/2015 5:20:23 PM

Are these used? It seems you are selling them for a below market price.

–Brant 4/6/2015 5:53:19 PM

–Nik 5/31/2015 10:36:45 PM

Nik, FedEx will be used to ship this to Canada.

As you know, it is never a promise with shipping estimates but it should take about a week for this to get to Calgary.
