Even with the 550 litres of space in the trunk of the Touareg, when we go on holiday, we never seem to have enough space.

So I forked out €650 for this massive 500L roof box called the Thule Force XT XL NG 500L.

This fastens straight onto the standard Touareg roof bars and even at 165kph, it’s as stable as f*ck, in fact, I think it even helps the aerodynamics slightly and did not notice any increase in fuel consumption at all even on 1,600km trips.

But it’s huge. It’s so huge I had to order a special Dolley just to lug it around in the garage

See the video below with the dolly. There is also a gallery below to see what it looks like installed.
