Granted this isn't a stupid amount, but damn Besta crap is heavy. This is the only Ikea photo I have of my car on my phone. This was a follow up run because they ran out of 2 Besta units and I had to pick them up 2 weeks later. My first load was about 3 times as tall. I have also put plastic Ikea chairs, and once a couch (but not in the garage) on top of my rack.
I just can't find Ikea boxes as big as the ones on the Beetle.
Who needs a trailer????
Isn't the Model X supposed to be an; SUV ???
Sport = Fast
Utlility = Roof Racks
Vehicle = 4 Wheels
Utility=trailer hitch...at least for me
I need it for my platform bike rack. But that is just me. I would love for it to have enough power and range to tow my race car to events but I am not hingeing my decision on it.
I also would mount a trailer hitch for the occasional larger load. I just don't want to tow a trailer every day to carry a 35 pound 12 foot kayak . I need a roof rack.
I am getting oh so very tempted to start another dreaded poll. Model X hitch plus cool up top ski rack vs. lose the falcon wing doors and give me full roof rack. Hmm ... I wonder which side Surf Dog would fall
I vote for falcon wings, they are what really sets the car apart... Well aside from the long range options, superior design and engineering, 17" screen and on and on
I wonder if anything like half a rack would be an in between compromise. i.e a full frame that allows both falcon doors to open, and a sensor/software combination that blocks the side that has the payload on top.
A lot of SUVs I see have those 'Thule' sarcophagus or snowboards+skis on one side or the other of the car really. Not sure about kayaks.

Any word on the "solution" that tesla has for the falcon-door/roofrack issue?
I asked my wife last night what she would choose (as i dig the falcon-doors) but her being an avid kayaker, skier, and planning our kids being the same..... she simply stated normal doors. So I am really hoping for a cool fix. I imagine if they do not think of anything there will be a normal door option.
