Need some ideas - waterproof rooftop cargo carrier on ARB full length rack

Hi, I'm looking to integrate some sort of waterproof cargo carrier onto my ARB full length rack. I am thinking some sort of rigid plastic rooftop carrier, but I want it to be about the width of the interior of the ARB: ~40". Ideally it would be no longer than half the rack, so link 40" or so. I would like a bonafide cargo carrier for the aerodynamics, but would also consider military surplus Hardigg cases, if anyone knows where to find them.

Any ideas? Post your pics if you've done this!

Yakima or Thule cargo box. I use Yakima Railgrab to fasten crossbars for the carrier.

Do you have any pics? I am looking at the Yakima Rocketbox 12.. not the perfect dimensions but about the shortest I can find.

Re: Need some ideas - waterproof rooftop cargo carrier on ARB full length rack

I just happen to have a Yakima Rocketbox Pro 14 - with all mounting hardware and crossbars, dual keys etc very clean & good condition.

Just had it taken off of a '12 TTSE I bought on saturday - I haven't even had a chance to search for it on the net.

If you're interested let me know and maybe we can strike a deal.

Ah geez I appreciate the offer but I think the 14 is just too long and would dominate the ARB, if it fit. Anyway, I am in CT, and I can't afford the time off for a road trip quite yet

Another thing to consider is a Plano "gun case" various sizes to choose from on Amazon. I've seen people use them before, they work great because they're short and modular, but if you need more storage you might want something else...
