So obviously we’re gonna need some sort of packing solution for our minivan for our upcoming trips. 7 people and all our gear is not going to fit, no matter how much swagger is in our wagon.
We bought one of those old boxy car toppers at a thrift store (we even got it half-off), but I’m a little doubtful that we’ll have all the pieces and/or be able to figure out how they all go together without the manual. I’ve scoured the internet for any instructions for the darn thing, but can’t find anything.
In the course of researching that, I found this:
It’s called a saddlebag, but I prefer to think of it as a backpack for our van! So cute!
Why I think I might get it:
- better gas mileage without something on the top of the car.
- Stores in a very small space when you’re done with it because it’s collapsible.
- It’s much cheaper than most car toppers.
Do any of you have one of these? Do you think it’s a good purchase? HELP!
