Aw man, I still don't have a shipment notification... Bummer.
I am debating a box vs. FatCat 6. They are pretty similar in pricing in all reality (especially used), but I am limited in storage options.
I went with the FatCat6. It fits perfectly. If you need the cargo space (e.g., if you are going up with 4 people and don't have enough trunk space, a cargo box may be the way to go. I considered it also, but decided to go with the FatCat 6. It's easier to install and remove, doesn't take up any space when not in use, and I expect more aerodynamic than a box. There are only 3 in our family, so we have plenty of room in the trunk with one seat folded down for the rest of our ski stuff.
I travelled the same route twice, once with the Sky Box and once without, 50+ miles roundtrip. The Sky Box causes about a 20% efficiency loss, with probably the majority of that loss being for travel above 40 MPH (45-75).Looks great. I have the same box on my SUV. Can you give a quick review of noise/range issues with this setup?
Did you get a free floor mat?The wait for spring break up begins. Tesla shipped me a floor mat for a Model 3 instead of roof rack.
What kind of straps and kayak holder do you use?Roof rack came the next day. Pretty quiet I might add.

I ordered the rack February 10th (3 weeks ago) and my credit card was charged the full amount plus shipping. Having received no information on shipping, I reached out to customer service and received the following response today:
"Thanks for contacting Tesla.
Unfortunately, the Model 3 Roof Rack remains temporarily out of stock. We are aiming for end of March regarding a restock date. You will receive an email once your order has shipped.
If you would like, you may wait until we have received our replenishment and are able to process your order for shipment, or you may cancel your order up until the point of processing for a return of funds to the original form of payment."
I emailed again to get an update sine I ordered/paid on Feb 10 with still no rack. Was told the roof rack is "now looking at least another month out".
