I got my mounting kit and a latch set from etrailer.com for mine. I also replaced the weatherstripping. It has done great in all weather: rain and snow.fba wrote:In the meantime we actually did get our hands on a Sears X-Cargo for pretty cheap. I'll just have to replace the two latches and also get the mounting kit. I was hoping to put it together in the local hardware store, but couldn't quite find the parts I wanted. So etrailer.com it is

I think this is the stuff I used. Got it from Home Depot.fba wrote:What did you use for weatherproofing? I saw someone on youtube use some AC insulation I think.
It's hard in the sense that yaikma no longer suggests these towers. Maybe they're not made anymore but it's still possible to find new I think of old stock if you know the part numbers. Or used of course if lucky. I'll do a separate post for the rack, which is what I intended to do when I saw this thread.fba wrote:Thanks so much for your (pretty good) offer! As we already bought a cargo box that fits on the factory bars, we won't need the towers anymore.
But maybe someone else here on the board might be interested. I feel like the whole setup is hard to come by these days.
