Thread Starter here. Thanks for replies. Ok, I'm having second thoughts about getting a roof carrier. We travel with two dogs, each in their own kennel located just behind the front seats. The second and third row seats are stowed. We pack two additional kennels (collapsed, of course) for the dogs to use in hotels, along with a bunch of other things for the dogs (bowls, food, leashes, harnesses, etc) with which we will need ready access. I store the kennels on their long ends, one along the right side of the rear area, the other along the left (with towels between the metal kennel and the plastic trim of the car). I also pack a small cache of tools and auto supplies (windshield washer fluid, etc), but need quick access to them, too. We pack our clothes and other items in carry-on size suit cases that can fit in the cargo carrier (properly secured), but it will get plenty hot up there, so probably not a good idea. Would not want to put computer up there either. That would leave extra towels, sheets to protect top of hotel bed from dogs, outerwear, and a few other soft items that could fit up above, but it isn't worth it if that's all for which we use it. Was hoping the roof carrier would help free up some room. Guess I'll just work on organizing things better.
