For our move down south last summer we purchased a Rocketbox to hold all our luggage since we drove the whole way from California to Alabama.
The funny thing is that you see these types of luggage holders on LOTS of cars in California. There is so much outdoorsy things to do there that people just leave them on their cars and when the time comes to go camping, or canoeing or hiking, they just pack them and they're off. Makes sense to me!
But if someone was like us and just has it on top of their car because it is a real hassle to take it off, you would never know. You could just assume they are the active type that is always prepared for whatever outdoor adventure comes up.
People don't really think that way here. I have had several people ask me why we still have our box on top of the car, some have asked if we are going on a trip and some have even teased me about my car's accessory.
Sure we have only used it for one camping trip since getting here. But I tell you what, I never loose my car in a Wal-Mart parking lot. So the Rocketbox stays.
