I bought a 7x14 tandem axle trailer with 5200# axles and a 9990 GVWR. I travel heavy.

Rola

We have a Rola hitch-mount cargo carrier w/a weatherproof cargo bag. We used it with our Pilot & it was fantastic - have yet to use it with the new Armada, but I'm sure it will work just as well. Gives us lots of extra room for suitcases & bulky items.

I just bought the XXL Thule box, and aero blade crossbars. Installing it this weekend to prepare for our Christmas trip to the OBX. Looking forward to the extra space in the truck, we travel with two large dogs and their crate takes up most of the rear cargo area. Will post some pics this weekend.

I've been really contemplating a hitch carrier as it seems to be the least expensive route. I probably need to start frequently browsing CL for a nice used roof box though. They have a much cleaner look.

Packasport. More expensive but worth it. Fiberglass vs plastic wins in my book.

I've always had pickup trucks, do these roof boxes mount rock solid?

BR nice KO2s - truck looks great. I hope the cargo box worked well for you.

My solution for our holiday trip this year was to rent a uhaul trailer to load up bikes, grills, coolers, etc. for two families. The Armada pulled great, but I ran out of gas 3 miles from my planned gas stop. I am used to running for 80 miles after the gauge reads dead empty, but i only got 42 miles after dead empty pulling a fully loaded uhaul trailer. Off topic, but I wish someone would come up with a solution for the bad gas gauge (other than filling up when you have 4 gallons of gas left in the tank). I will now be travelling with a full one gallon can on road trips...

I love the tires, they have been great in rain and snow. This week we spent the week in the Outer Banks 4 wheel drive area. There has been a lot of rain, and ponding. We made it through a couple of 4ft sections, was worried when the headlights submerged that we were gong to stall but it was all good. The box is awesome, I bought a small 3step aluminum ladder to help get inside the box. This truck is smaller than my first Armada, sounds crazy but there is a lot less space in this one.

Looked at it didn’t want to lose hitch access. Love the Thule box, very little wind noise and lots of space.

I bought a Yakima RocketBox for my BMW, and use it on my Armada if/when I need the extra storage.

In that the roof top box, looks like it belongs on a mini van., plus it's a huge pain in the ass to.pack and unload that thing. I use the hitch mount tray. With a big waterproof bag. Tray folds up when not in use, perfect for beach outing, I set canopy up over back of armada and use my hitch mount as an outdoor kitchen.
I use the roof for kayaks.
