We have an ATC bobcat that we'll be taking on an extended trip and considering putting our Thule Cascade cargo box on a yakima roof rack with 2 bars on yakima roof tracks to allow more storage. We'd only put light bulky things up there. Two issues:
1. The box will partially (maybe 1/3) block the solar panel if placed on the edge of the roof. Has anyone done this and still found the panel sufficiently charges the battery. The box is about 22" wide. We'll be taking the box off when we reach our destination.
2. The issue of having weight up there when popping up. We also may have a light road bike up there for a portion of that trip. What is the max weight for ATC for driving and popping up? Does popping up with weight on the roof harm the popup locking mechanism? Any issues with having weight unevenly distributed on the roof? -- Rob
