Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the job. As long as the rails on your vehicle are pretty much set for the rack to slide on it will be an easy install. It is adjustable enough to accommodate most rails. If your rails also must be adjusted then that increases installation time. Light enough for one person install but 100% easier to install with two people one on each side. Construction seems rather flimsy but this is my first rack. Fits nicely on my Subaru Baja but now have to be careful of overhead garage door opener. You will need to line the interior with a grippy material otherwise things slide around. Two sided access is a benefit. Downside, I can't go through a car wash, up side I can find my vehicle easier in a crowded parking lot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use I chose this box because I thought the dimensions offers the most versatility when it comes to cargo. I have packed a jogging stroller, beach gear, and camping gear and I have only had it for a month. I had used a Thule roof bag for years and was quite happy with it, but I wanted something with more structure that could be locked for trips when the gear needed to be left on the roof "unsupervised". I was able to assemble and attach the box in about 20 minutes by myself, I am 6'4" so I am able to get the box on the roof alone without a problem. Now that the clamps are set to match up with my roof rack, attaching and removing is done in under 5 minutes. I like that the box can be opened from either side and that the key cannot be removed while the box is open. After seeing someone with a crunched box, I have a note taped to the dashboard with the combined height of my vehicle with the box so I don't make the same mistake.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fits well; Works well Well, after 4000 miles from CA to CO, WY and back here's a report...This box fits a 2012 Outback (factory roof rack) nicely; Wind noise is noticable, but nothing serious, although it's our first roof box and we have no basis for comparison. We hit a couple rain storms while driving and never found water inside; However, now that we're back on the foggy/drizzly CA coast, we have noticed *small* amounts of water inside the bottom of the nose - not sure how this is accumulating... The only other issue worth noting is this: One time (just once, mid-trip) when we opened it, the bracket in the nose had slipped loose. This bracket is a user-assembled connection (where the red arrows align), but it seemed secure when we first put it together, and the connection is secure at this time. Fortunately, the nose bracket is not a lock point, so the box was always secure. Maybe the plastic slide-lock connection was loosened by the day's heat (?) - Anyhow, we're not going to let that get in the way of a positive recommendation :-) All in all, we're happy with it!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from able to haul more gear I picked up my yakima rocketbox pro14 from the indy REI store and mounted it on my 2011 jeep grand Cherokee easily. Drove it home with very little wind noise..I also was able to open tbe rear hatch without interference and the Rear antenna had enough clearance. I plan on using it soon, loaded with gear to drive to Tennessee.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does its job (2016 Subaru Impreza Hatchback) Does exactly what you would expect and it is even big enough to fit my skis in. Fits perfectly on a 2016 Subaru Impreza with the stock aerodynamic roof rack without causing any issues with the hatchback. The fact that it opens from both sides is great. I've had older versions of these boxes and I really like the fact that using the key to unlock the box no longer opens the box as well, a button press is also needed. I ordered this as ship-to-store, which was great because they take care of all the packaging and put it on top of the car for you. No cleanup!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works for far:) Price, ouch. Lightweight, easy to access, fits nicely on top of my Avalanche. Originally bought to make it easier on our supply runs to town (300 miles to town for supplies), remains stable at speed over 100mph, rain, sleet, snow, hail. I'll be able to get a better test on how well it holds up this winter when it hits -30F. But for now, it's earned it's keep. A bit on the flimsy side, I feel like I'm going to break it every time I open and close it but it's held together so far. Pretty aerodynamic, more so than my old Sears roof box. Gas mileage to town and back has only been affected by about .4mpg (instead of 17.6mpg, I'm getting 17.2mpg now. I've tested this half a dozen times now and it's been consistent using cruise control. We also get +100mph sustained winds during the winter, so we'll see what happens to this thing on winter runs to town in those conditions. Yakima, get ready for a torture test in Alaska:) This box fit a double stroller and luggage without a problem. I have the Yakima 58 crossbars on the Q Towers and there is enough room for this roof box and Yakima Big Powderhound on the 58" bars. I had to slide the bars all the way over to one side and mount one side of the Powderhound mount on the outside of the Q Towers so the bars overhand on the driver side which makes it a lot easier for me to get to my skis rack. REI Anchorage was AWESOME, they assembled this box and helped me get it onto the racks. Very quick, professional and even gave me some tips on mounting location.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from just the right size for my car the car seems less noisy with the rocketbox than with just the cross bars to install it, the fit it's a snap and the feature of dual side opening is excellent

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gives me a lot of storage The rocket box 14 frees up a lot space in the back of my suv. Easy to put on my Grand Charokee. Can put 2 folding chairs, small 5 x 7 tent, two sleeping bags, three bags stuffed full of freez dried food, small broom and much more.

How do I determine and then order (assumedly 2 different sets) of appropriate hardware to accompany the RocketBox Pro 14 Roof Box. I hope to use it interchangeably between two vehicles (different makes and models, each with a different style cross bar)?

will this hold 2-3 carry-on sized roller bags (luggage)? it looks rather narrow in the pics.

Asked by: dde1
The Yakima RocketBox Pro 14 is intended to fit gear for up to 3 people. Fit in the box will depend on the size of each piece of luggage We recommend comparing the dimension of your luggage with the dimensions of the box. These dimensions of the box are as follows: length 6', width 33" and height 16".

Will this box fit on a 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport with the panoramic roof?

Asked by: torrey25
A rack system will need to be added to the roof to support the RocketBox Pro 14 Roof Box, even if there is a factory roof rack. The box will fit on the roof, but Yakima warns: "The sunroof/panoramic roof should not be opened while the rack and/or gear mounts are installed. You may remove the rack when not in use." Use the Yakima fit guide to determine the best system:

Will this fit a 2016 Acura MDX with the OEM cross bars? The bars do not adjust and would like to find the largest Yakima cargo box that does not overhang the rear hatch. Thx

Asked by: Dwin
Hatch clearance is determined by the length of the cargo box compared to the length of the roof of your vehicle. You can find instructions for measuring your car and determining hatch clearance on Yakima's website.
