Drive your dream with Bowater Toyota

Maximise your space without upgrading your car

When it comes to getting you, your family and all of the essential gear up to the ski field this year you may need to think outside of the box and make the journey a whole lot more comfortable.

Why clutter up the inside of your car with wet, snowy & stinky ski gear when you can put it all on the roof?
A quality roofbox will not only give you about 30% more storage space, but it will get potentially dangerous projectiles during sudden braking, or an accident, out of your car and out of harms way.

Thule roof boxes have an amazing reputation, for very good reason. They prove time and time again to be the best way to transport awkward or bulky gear on trips, up the mountain, to the beach in summer, or even just to move the kids sports gear to the sports ground in the weekend.
They are fully weatherproof, and are completely lockable to keep your valuable sports gear, or camping holiday essentials, safe and sound.

The Parts Department at Bowater Toyota have come up with some very special prices on a couple of the most popular models to get you on your way.

Get more storage, and instantly get more lifestyle!

Roofboxes are one of those little extras that you may not think about until after you need them. However if you are thinking that your current vehicle is not quite big enough then this is a quick, easy and cheaper way of generating a lot more space.

The beauty of a roofbox system is that it is extra space on demand. The Thule System means that you can take your roofbox on and off your vehicle quickly and easily. The Thule roofboxes are very aerodynamic as the second video demonstrates, but if you are concerned about additional fuel consumption then you can remove it with little fuss, allowing you to use it only when you need it if you choose.

The following video is for the Atlantis range, but you get the idea. Installation is the same on the Pacific range with the same Quick Grips attachment system.


Thule is committed to producing roof boxes that are not only strong and safe, but also quiet on the open road, reducing the drag and therefore bettering your fuel consumption compared to less aerodynamic roofboxes.
They do this using wind tunnels to test performance. It is quite an art to get it all just right, as reducing the drag not only makes for a quieter ride, but also saves you fuel, getting it all wrong actually can create lift, which at 100km/hr can be quite unpleasant especially whilst cornering.
