If you thought that the Yakima CBX and the GrandTour were the best roof boxes, you’ve had a chance to see anything as of yet. We’d like to show you how to use the Vector Thule’s premium product that breaks the guidelines set by standard roof boxes. It combines luxury and function Its Vector includes an adjustable felt pad at the bottom to shield your equipment and a lid with a white liner for better visibility, as well as the use of motion-activated LED lights that provide illumination to the room. Add to that an extremely aerodynamic design (the nose is positioned below your rack’s front crossbar, reducing the sound of wind) and the strongest construction in this area (featuring steel reinforcements within the base) and it just cannot get more impressive then the Vector.

Why, you may be wonderingwhy we put this top-of-the-line product on the bottom on our checklist? It’s easy to justify a $1600 price cost when you can have an all-purpose, sturdy and top-quality cargo container at a fraction of the cost (or lesser). The Vector is a bit that is similar to our top-ranked Motion XT, including PowerClick mounts and dual-side access that comes with the top SlideLock locking with latch. But the difference in the rigidity is apparent (that’s an impressive claim considering that the Motion is among the most rigid designs we’ve seen here). In terms of interior attributes the Vector has no equivalent. It’s not going to look in the norm on many adventure mobiles, and the 13 cubic-foot capacity might be an issue for some. However, when you’re tackling the slopes in a premium vehicle (we’re taking a look at the likes of Audi, Tesla, and Volvo) Thule Vector is a must. Thule Vector is well worth having a glance.
