The best part about the Yakima SkyBox 12 Carbonite Cargo Box is that it's just right for a medium-sized child; if Jimmy keeps hitting his sister, or Veronica won't stop poking Jimmy in the eye during a road trip, well, they know where they're going. (J/k.) As importantly, the SkyBox's Carbonite material is 80% recycled and extra-lightweight so you can carry more gear without weighing your car down, and it has internal lid stiffeners and an aerodynamic design for increased efficiency and less noise. The SkyBox opens on both sides and closes tightly with a SuperLatch secure closure system, and also has an integrated SKS Lock system to keep two people's worth of gear totally safe.

I was shocked by the size of the box. I thought it was the wrong product delivered. It's easy to set up and clamp on and off once set. I put it on and off by myself to adjust clamps. I'm 5'11". I did it but would be much easier with help. Much better quality then my old Sears box. Hatch on car opened normally, even sunroof didn't hit clamps. We have a limited with panoramic roof. Xm satellite still gets signal too. I was worried about that. Took it for a short test drive empty. With radio off and sunroof shade open (sunroof closed) I could def hear it up there. With shade closed and radio on like normal, didn't notice it. Only complaintso far is the opening. It's a about 13". Cutting it close with a suitcase. We'll see when suitcase is full, it fit empty as a test. Jogging stroller and reg stroller fit in too. But would have preferred one side opening with a wider clearance for loading.
Taking it on a 2500 mile journey. Will update.
The question: Get into debt and be prepared to pay out $500+ monthly on car payment for an SUV or mini van that we'd utilize to its maximum potential a total of 8 times a year to accommodate one extra little member to the family?
Since Amazon requires scheduled delivery a week in advance, we picked up the Yakima 16 Carbonite at a local sporting good store and took it on a ride to Joshua Tree National park the same day. We were able to carry with us our Weber 1200 grill + cart, mini cooler, groceries, baby's high chair, baby's travel crib, a Manfrotto tripod, our cooking utensils, DJI Phantom 3 and accessories in its bag, camera gear + bag, 4 bottles of wine, a 12-pack of beer, baby diaper bag and travel bag and mine and wife's baggage. We had room for more stuff.
The SkyBox looks great and does not generate wind noise at all, even traveling at 80 mph. We experienced minimal wind noise only when we were traveling through Hwy 62 where there were a lot of strong cross winds and a windmill farm, but that's about it. The SkyBox has slidable tracks, so you can position your SkyBox as far or as close up to the front of your vehicle as you like. As far as hatch clearance, the Prius hatch -barely- touches the back of the SkyBox, but again, we could move the box further up front if we like.
The SkyBox 16 Carbonite is mounted on a 2012 Prius Four (no solar roof) on BaseLine Towers with 50" Core Bars and 46" Yakima fairing.
Used the box once so far for a camping trip. Box is pretty easy to adjust and get onto the roof. Having two people helps but I also did it alone. Seems the front end of the box is heavier. (small step helps too).
Having the box open on both sides wasn't a requirement but after using it, it was really a great feature to have. This box is huge! I put the tent, canopy, chairs and sleeping bags up there with room to spare. I think the limiting factor is the weight limit on the bars.
I did not notice much noise from the box on the highway. Did seem louder with the sunroof open. Looking up through the sun roof the front of the box did seem to wobble a bit when empty. The dimpled surface has a pretty slick look to it.
