Default Cargo Carrier..

Yeah I know that this is about towing but has anyone used a cargo carrier on their Equinox?

Whenever we go on trips we always have to lug around our dog cages for the boys. Being that we have leather I don't like putting them between the front seats and the back.

So I am looking for an alternative here...

I can either strap them to a cargo carrier that gets towed by the receiver or get the cargo carrier brackets for the luggage rack..

I dont know which way I am going here but just want to see what others might do here...

I'm looking into a car top cargo carrier to buy for my Black 2LT (haven't taken delivery yet). I really like the Yakima brand, but they are pretty expensive. Does anyone have a recommendation for an aerodynamic carrier, and what's the maximum length I can get without it looking ridiculous on my roof?

Since that's the same as mine it should have the Rack rails already installed like this...



And then really all you would need to add would be the cross members...



At www.gmpartsdirect.com via part #19202488 These will cost you about $115 and tach on shipping...

Installed it will look like this...




Do you think you could use this or do you need something more extreme... I know that there are accessories to use these crossmembers to accomodate bikes or whatever...

For my 120lb Yellow lab, I use a sling for the back seat, and rest his kennel behind the back portion of the 2 front seats. with some shipping blankets for protection. works good.

I bought my Surco Roof Rack from 4 Wheel Online. They are very durable.

Very impressed with 2018 Equinox Premiure model built in tow package, roof rack and tie down hook on front for adapting Thule Cargo Carrier and Yakima Kayak Carrier as well as receiver bike rack..drove from Mesa Arizona to Winnipeg Canada over 3 days with setup..made for this type of travel! That's a 14 foot tandem kayak on vehicle.
