Does anyone use a roof box with thefactory fitted roof bars, coz they don't look very strong. I don't like the look ofthose plastic slider clips that hold the bars to the rails. Are they really up to the job?
My roof box takes up to 45kg. Is it likely to end up in the middle lane of the M4?

I would not use the supplied roof bars with a roof box. They are not realy designed to hold anything that heavy.
So if you don't want the contents of your roof boxall over the M4 I would suggest you buyproper roof bars.

have a 03 sedona and I use a mont blanc large roof box,only problem was fitting the roof bars are too wide, to get round this we used exhaust mounting u bolts and spaces to attach, you loose the quick release,but i load fully have used it a lot with no bother. It has been on my roof for 4 years before i removed it,i use it for shopping, awning,coats,ect and i will be refitting it as i tow and i have noticed that towing is better with the box on sarah
