Thanks all.

The Thule Pacific 780 seems to come in at about 320. Anyone know anywhere that has better deals than that?

I may try Neil's trick of finding a display one if possible.

The Atlantis 1800 seems to be a US model name. Anyone know the UK equivalent? It looks positively cavernous!

Got lots of stuff? Yakima Skybox 21;


Look for them used, we got ours in great shape for half the price of a new one.

This is my one roughly the same but different:
Thule*-*6312 Thule Pacific 200 DS

I don't have the problem of the claw grip turny/knobby thing taking up much room inside

5 years ago I bought an ebay cheapie, still going strong and for 60 I can't complain...
I would buy second hand off ebay if you really want a thule etc as they are always coming up for sale

Any thoughts on this?

Looks a good size/design and decent offer. Doesn't have both side opening or grips. Anyone used one of these?

Bet you a quid that's built by Thule as the lock is the same as mine and it looks the same. Even the rivet things in the side and back seem to be in the same place.

The only thing I would say is that after the quick grip system I would pay more again to have it. Once unloaded it takes 1 min max to take off and so your not trolleying about with it all holiday. Also less chance of scratching you car roof messing about with u bolts etc. just my opinion anyways.
