Im just gonna chant "KO2, KO2" in the background until we have matching cars lol just keep in mind the massive width of the rhino rack crossbars. Its very limiting since 'universal' roof rack equipment such as a basket, sports equipment mounts, or boxes need a mounting point which can be fine tuned (the reason why the rhino rack xtray works so well is because you can slide the mounting points until it perfectly matches the cross bar location). Im sure theres stuff out there that will work but dont trust anything until youve test fitted it yourself.
something I continue to consider.
I have carried an amazing amount to the Abbotsford Airshow & will do it again this year.
I once worked for the now defunct Greyhound Canada, I know how to pack a cargo space,
however there's always that last minute " I wish I could go with you guys "
but the Cx-3 only holds enough for two people for one week.
I use my old Smartphone connected to my rear dash cam thus still having rear visibility.
Add much wind noise with roof open and/or closed ? with just the rack ? and then loaded ?
Let us know how it affects handling in the strong winds.
My Blazer was a fight to drive through crosswinds when it was stacked high.
She's all shiny, too bad you live a city where the city's snow movement creates puddles until ? Stampede ?
Is this setup any better than the OEM side rails + cross bars?
For me, yes. The reason I chose to have this setup over the rails and crossbars is that the stock crossbars are curved upwards in the middle. Too much for my liking.
The Rhinos are a relatively flat and lower profile which, I think, goes with the car better. The crossbars themselves are a bit more heavy duty than the oemís, and are profiled similar to the Thule Aeroblades.
Bonus is that all components are black. Not a fan of too much chrome or silver.
