    next Summer I need to transport 4 adults and luggage down to Southampton for a cruise.

    My tourer isn't that big tbh, especially as with cruises luggage you don't have to meet any weight limitation so it'll be big suitcases. I'm thinking I need to be carrying cases on the roof.

    Does anyone have any ideas about the best way to do this? Roof boxes won't work, I'm even contemplating making a ply construction raft and bolting it to the roof bars.

    Has anyone ever done this sort of thing?

    Cheers

    Remember there are weight restrictions on the roof bars? A couple of heavy suitcases on the roof may well be more than what the roof bars can take.

    If you have a towbar fitted what about hiring/borrowing a trailer?

    Or hire a large people carrier for the day - like a Hyundai i800 8 seater?
