Short Wide roof box:
Hapro Roady 350 roof box, black, no. HP350B
The Roady 350 is a really well thought out and well made 300 litre box; it's a recent design, good looking and stylish. We think it's outstanding value for money.
It's a rear opening box, hinged from the front, allowing you to access the box from both sides, making it easier to fit to the roof bars, and easier to load.
We look around the European market regularly and are confident that this is much the best value box of this size below £125. It's a significant step up, quality wise, from the Karrite Odysseys. (It's a bit longer and narrower than the Odyssey 325, with a very similar capacity.) The Roady 350 is a front hinged box - the best design for both safety and waterproofing in this mid market sector - with a single rear mounted lock.
The rear opening also gives you good access from either side - it opens to 50cm wide at the back and 30cm at the side mid-point - making it easy and quick to fit and remove, load and unload. The reinforced flat base means that it will fit all standard roof bar configurations, including modern Fixpoint bars which are often too wide apart for short wide mid market roof boxes.
At 78cm wide there should be space to carry at least one bike carrier, especially if you use aerobars to gain extra useable roof bar length.
The box is supplied with the base inside the lid, to minimise freight costs / fuel use (Hapro supplies these boxes to dealers worldwide) but the self-assembly work is quick and easy - check out the Fitting video tab.
Hapro is the world's second biggest roof box manufacturer, one of the big three (Thule, Hapro, KAMEI). Hapro are based near Rotterdam in the Netherlands, and make roof boxes for numerous important worldwide brands as well as selling under their own Hapro brand.

This season we are offering a free roof box hoist to give you a superb deal. Boxes are bulky items so the ideal place to store them is above your car in the garage, or perhaps in a shed. Many people will leave the box attached to the bars, and also use the box for storage. If you don't need a box hoist, our alternative gift is a set of 3 Fasty straps - 0.5m, 1.5m and 3.0m. Although of much less financial value they will be useful for 1,001 things, time and again. To order the 3 straps, tick the Alternative free gift box below. Please note that only one box hoist or one set of straps will be included per roof box ordered.

Very few customers know much about the roof box market before they visit our site. We have a lot of information about the things to think about before buying, and the “real world usefulness" of various roof box features, but you’ll be buying sight unseen, and you probably won’t have used a roof box before, so there is inevitably some luck in getting a box that you’ll be happy with.
We want to remove the risks of buying these large and often expensive items, perhaps from brands which almost every other roof box retailer doesn’t stock, and so we have a unique “90 day Exchange Scheme” for roof boxes.
This allows you to use a roof box and, with the benefit of experience, to exchange it for a new one within 90 days of invoice date. Most exchanges are from a shorter box to a longer one, or from a wider box to a narrower one.
These are the rules of the Exchange Scheme:
This is how the exchange scheme works:
Specifications at a glance:
The Roady 350 is supplied with the base inside the lid, but the assembly is very easy. Click here to see Hapro's fitting video.
Delivery charges and arrangements:
We charge a contribution towards delivery costs, depending on what you order, where you live, and how quickly you want the goods.
For most UK addresses, the charge for our two to three day service is £5.50 (£9.50 for orders including a roof box) and our charge for Next Working Day deliveries is £8.50 (£12.50 for orders involving a roof box). AutoSock, and small spare parts, are charged £3.95 (1st Class post) or £5.50 (express courier, usually Next Working Day).
There are different charges for any delivery including a sea crossing, and deliveries to Skye - we will contact you with a quote on receipt of order.
Orders for Next Working Day delivery need to be received by 4.00pm.
There are no deliveries on Saturdays, Sundays or Bank Holidays. Next Working Day orders placed on a Friday will be delivered on the Monday, Next Working Day orders placed on a Saturday will be delivered on the Tuesday.
We are very flexible with our deliveries and will aim to deliver on a day and at an address which suits you. Goods can usually be left without signature - we prefer this with roof boxes. There's a "Special Delivery Instructions" box in the checkout area where we'll ask you to choose a typical instruction and then amend it to suit your particular requirements.
No retailer or courier company can ever "guarantee" a Next Working Day delivery. All courier companies occasionally have the same transport problems as can happen to everyone else, including snow blocked roads, closed roads, traffic jams, mechanical breakdown, an inability to find the delivery address, or to gain access to it if, for example, it's in a block of flats. We work with some of the best couriers in the business, and overall they provide an outstanding service.
