Boot/Trunk Luggage Rack

I'm going to be taking my car on a couple of big road-trips next summer and need a decent, removable luggage rack for the boot/trunk- anyone know of a good brand or supplier?

Otherwise, this may be the option!!

Dude, just do what I do. UPS the stuff you need to wear and use to your destination and travel light.

BTW, those luggage racks (both of them) linked above are something like two large each! I like my UPS idea a LOT better.

Hi,

I especially like this one. It doesn't sit on individual feet, but on Trunk-wide runners so you're putting down fewer lbs./in.. With an Alloy trunk, there's less likelyhood you're going to leave any dents (or conversely, much longer ones if you do I guess). Do you have a source/link?...

Looks like the one in the link.

I saw the car at my local dealer a few years ago and took pictures because I had not seen that style rack in person before.

The last one especially looks great- I may even buy the snowboard attachment so I can take a guest (rather than just the board) when i hit Tahoe this winter.

Thanks for your help, guys!
