Thule Sidekick Cargo Carrier Reviews
Average Customer Review:
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
We got this for our trip to NY upstate for the past weekend. We drove over 1,000 miles and with heavy rain on the way. It stands with 80 MPH speed and no leaks when it rains. It's a pretty good product.
Pros: Does the job what it's designed for.
Cons: Kind of hard to put it together.
