If you are considering a roof mounted base rack, keep in mind you will have to load your cargo overhead, whereas a hitch mounted carrier can be loaded at ground level.  Also consider the cost of additional accessories that roof racks require for different types of cargo.  A hitch mounted rack is much simpler and quicker install than a rooftop rack.  With the MAX cargo carrier, you won’t have to mess around with crossbars, fit hooks, stays, pads, end caps, or locks (you’ll have at least four locks for just the crossbars).  Remember that most roof racks are custom fit to each model of vehicle.  With the StowAway MAX, you will be able to switch to nearly any vehicle with a 2″ hitch receiver.
