: Rooftop Cargo Box

05-08-11, 06:58 PM
Anyone have a recommendation for a good rooftop cargo box?
The price is less of a concern than the storage space.

I'm looking for a box that has a glossy finish that matches the black paint on my ESV.

The main use of the box will be for trips up to the mountain with snowboard and skis but I want the box to be attractive enough to be able to leave it on the car without it being an eye sore.

I'm thinking about one of the Thule boxes but am not sure which one has the proper finish and best adaptation for the Escalade.

the one I have is a sears cargo mate 20 CF it is not the prettiest thing on the market but it worked really well for space and trip.. The thules I have seen have been glossy black.. but the space is small and I needed more room..

I am running an older thule top box for skiing that looks pretty decent with the escalade.

here it is all dirty after a return from a ski trip:

I've found quite a few different items on www.gmpartsdirect.com that I would suggest taking a look through. Some of them are even a collaboration with the THULE brand as well. Some also have the Cadillac logo incorporated on them as well. Here is a link to the page that I found these items on http://www.gmpartsdirect.com/accessories/frameset3.cfm. The part numbers are 19257865, 19257866, 19257867, 12499318 and 12497826. That last one is a black soft luggage carrier with the Cadillac logo on it. Hopefully you can find one that fits your style. Also, all of these should fit the 2009 Cadillac Escalade. You can modify the search on the website as well to match your vehicle as well if the 2009 is not your model year.
