Thule as well as Yakima are certainly giants in the industry However, according to research, constructing an effective rooftop cargo box doesn’t require rocket scientists. The Goplus is a good example of getting the majority of the ingredients right, including a double-sided opening, no-tool mounts which can be installed on the majority of bar designs and a sleek design that is available in gloss and matte finishes. Without any additional stiffeners, the lid isn’t as sturdy or as awe-inspiring as the more expensive models however flop isn’t as much of a concern because of its small size. On the positive side, there is a remarkably light design (25 pounds.) which is simple to lift and unload using just one pair of hands.
The Goplus was once one of our most popular models for budget with a less than $500 price tag, but after an increase in price up to $660 it’s shed a bit of its appeal, and is now further down our list of ranking as a result. Additionally, due to the length of 62.5 inches (the Goplus only comes in one size) Skiers should be aware that this isn’t the right transporter you’re looking for. It’s also crucial to know this: the Goplus can only be used with crossbars between 16 and 25 inches, which could be quite restrictive (for comparison the spread of the RocketBox is 24 to 40 inches.). It’s great to have a different option to the brands mentioned above however the Goplus isn’t a standout in the market unless you locate it for sale.
