Furthermore, your fuel consumption will definitely be higher due to the drag created by this box. :$gone: If not in use, better to remove it.

This remind me an incident happen to me last Dec at Genting First world Hotel, at the entrance of the hotel car park clearly stated not exit 2.3m, and I double confirm with the attendance, and he assure me no problem, when I down from lever to lever looking for parking lot, and I forgotten how many level I have down...suddenly I saw one big pipe (water pipe?) right infront of me across the roadway :ko: and I have no way to reversed back :fire: Lucky I have unload all the luggage at the other hotel. What to do? remove the roof box (bigger then yours) and squish into my MPV with 3 adult and 3 kids. :fire: :fire: :fire: So...be careful next time or else better park outside the shopping complex or whatever if not familiar with the place.

BUT... I see jaguar park his roof box into hotel room :mrgreen:

I confirmed with THULE Malaysia for this model last week

Atlantis 100 RM1800
Ocean 80 RM1400
Ranger (new product like Nomad-Canvas) RM1200
Cross Barr RM750

U can find them at IKANO Damansara's ground floor if u r in Malaysia. they got showroom there.
For Brother's, just call them to confirm. But only a few model available.

I think TWE Ocean 83 is slightly larger compared to Thule Ocean 80, and don't forget Fibreglass vs. ABS. :mrgreen:
