Thule's Sidekick is a toy box for adults! Instead of carrying action figures or stuffed animals, the Sidekick provides roof-mounted storage for cycling, skiing, camping, and recreational equipment. With 8 cubic feet of cargo space, you can even carry 2 sets of golf clubs. The Sidekick mounts easily on Thule and most factory and after-market roof racks. Plus, the side opening is ultra convenient.
If you drive a van or SUV for its carrying capacity, but find the expenses of driving it a bit excessive, you might be interested to learn that you could instead drive a sportier and smaller car with a rooftop box. In most cases this setup exceeds the carrying capacity of your SUV and gets significantly improved mileage, too. Plus, rooftop boxes provide easy access, easily fit on all vehicles and can be quickly removed when they're not needed.
