My wife and I are planning a vacation in which we load up our stuff and dogs in the GTI and head to the beach for a week. Without the dogs I wouldn’t be concerned about cargo space. With them occupying the back seat I am concerned and I’m beginning to look at roof racks, cargo bags/baskets, etc. I’m lost. Please help! Any advice and/or product recommendations are appreciated.

Also, this stuff is more expensive than I expected. The VW roof rack seems to be the most economical option. Does anyone know if it is any good?
