- putting a 7 month old in a roof box
stopping depends on the fuel consumption, id gaffa tape to the back as a roof box will drag down that economy, consider leaving at 10pm as 10pm-3am are quiter hours on the road (you’ll make more progress) kids out of the wind are good upto about 110mph – 10pm-3am are also normally the quiet hours for a 7 month old, however i would consider a double dose of calpol (10ml), 20ml of Whisky (available from duty free at the border) and a swig of night nurse in a bottle to keep the little tinker asleepPosted 4 years agoslackaliceMember
Sounds like a bit of a faff, roof boxes, gaffa tape and all the associated buggies, nappies, food. The whole trip turns into a logistical nightmare that requires military precision to execute.
Leave it at home with a supply of pizza, jars of baby food and instructions for the microwave.

True story – a friend who does Brompton mods once showed me how he carried his twins in a plastic box bolted to the luggage block. “You put one in facing left, the other facing right, and interlock their legs so they don’t fall out.”
His ex now has custody of the kids.Posted 4 years agoPookSubscriber
I’m off to dalbeattie in a few weeks, and as the car is going to be full of bike stuff, I’m going to put my lad on the roof. What’s best, strapped to roof bars in his car seat, in a roof box sealed up with some toys or just gaffa trapped to the back window to keep him out of the wind? It’s only 5 hours’ drive – will we need to stop?Posted 4 years agoJunkyardMember
In the spirit of the other thread ending
Leave them, call Social services, see if you can get them back afterwards.
Obviously I think you are unfit and I am sure they will agree
Its odd you asked for advice and people flamed you for making an informed decision based on others experiencePosted 4 years ago
