I also installed the factory crossbars... I'm mechanically challenged and was able to instal both in less than 30 minutes. READ the instructions prior to actually installing. They are NOT the same length.VMMVMMM said:Yes, I just purchased them myself and popped them on, it was very simple. I think you'll really like the cargo box, I have been very pleased with it, and it is far cheaper than most/all of the suggestions on the other threads. We no longer have any issues with space when we are going on trips.
I'm about the same height and I am fine using mine while standing in one of the rear door openings.eelfliw said:Can someone please give me some tips on using the cargo box?
At 5'7", I'm not exactly tall. But I wouldn't call my self short either. But I can't even see the top of my Outlook, much less reach into the cargo box to retrieve items.
Do you carry a step ladder in the Outlook? Otherwise, how do you reach in the cargo box while, say, at a shopping mall?
OK, we are on vacation still in the Outer Banks and I have seen 2 Acadia's with the Sears X-Cargo 20 on top so they are being used by Lambada owners.crispy said:The Sears X-Cargo 20 fits just fine. Many Acadia owners use it with no problems.
The reason is because the X-Cargo 20 opens to the rear and the XM radio antenna is back there.
If you are careful, there is no reason why is can't work.
