Hi Everyone,

NTec 2011 owner here

We just bought a tent and planning on a roof box for camping.

Seen a few bags that say they don't need cross bars but wondering if this is safe with the glass roof?
Anyone used these?

I know they're tested for impact damage but what about a few hundred miles of driving with 80kg-100kg or so on the roof - anyone done this?

Something like this:  https://www.amazon.co.uk/Waterproof-Carrier-Install-Carriers-Traveling/dp/B074QBQSVN/ref=sr_1_5?keywords=roof+&qid=1581365704&sr=8-5 - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Waterproof-Carrier-Install-Carriers-Traveling/dp/B074QBQSVN/ref=sr_1_5?keywords=roof+box&qid=1581365704&sr=8-5

Thanks!

I'm afraid I have to agree with Doug999, definitely use roof bars.
