Value of roof boxes

A follow on to a current topic on fixing roof boxes.

What value have roof boxes?
I ask because we toyed with the idea of having one fitted, liking the idea of putting some of the bulky but not too heavy stuff up on the roof out of the way.
We already have rails, a strengthened roof area and a ladder factory fitted.

We went off the idea when we tested climbing up onto the roof!
Since then we have met 2 people with roof boxes who say that although they have stuff in their box they actually never use it because of the hassle of getting it down and putting it back up.

Any comments?

I for one never travel without a roof box when away, before my motor home it was a necessity and nothing has changed.
If you can picture this. :eek:
Just arrived back from the beach, body boards, chairs, wet suites, towels, bucket & spade (for me) :wink: footballs, sandals and lots more.
Where does all this go, in my roof box (yes it is that big) :oops: there are two adults and two children to help and we all muck in and it takes a matter of minutes. :D
