It’s possible that it’ll end up in the last spot on our list However, Jegs Rooftop Cargo Carrier Jegs Rooftop Cargo Carrier has one advantage its price. Its price is just $260. bargain box is hundred dollars more than second-lowest model (Thule’s Sidekick), and it has dual access on both sides and double the storage capacity. Furthermore, thanks to its wide and high-height dimensions, it’s able to hold many bulky objects which other bullet-shaped haulers aren’t able to. In the end, for an ordinary box that isn’t going to be left at home all year round The Jegs is a low-cost and reasonably road-worthy option.

However, the praise doesn’t stop here, as everything else is mediocre at most. The plastic construction doesn’t give us much assurance of its durability and the wide and tall shape does not have the aerodynamics of contemporary designs. When it comes to mounting, the U-bolts connect via drill holes that are predrilled (rather than tracks that can be adjusted) This means that you’ll need to adjust your crossbars, or even drill new holes to ensure an ideal fitting. Finally, the locks aren’t strong enough to stop a burglar as you’ll need to take them off every time you need to access your equipment. It’s not difficult to be too crucial at this price and the Jegs may be all you require for a single crossing-country journey or just for occasional usage.
