Save effort and time when assembling your equipment.

A roof cargo box system for transporting an article on a vehicle includes a roof cargo box and a roof cargo box carrier for mounting on a vehicle. The box includes a flexible shell for accommodating the article to be transported. The roof cargo box defines a longitudinal axis and has at least three frames which extend in respective planes transversely to the longitudinal axis. The frames are configured to receive the flexible shells spanned thereon. A scissors mechanism pulls the frames into a predetermined spaced relationship to each other along the longitudinal axis.

The roof cargo box can be expanded and compressed, so that the box itself becomes a suitcase.
