I have a thule roof box which is sometimes hard to load. Do you think something like this is safe to use on the Treg? I have a 2015 Tdi and am in the US.

May work if you don't weight to much. It is putting quite a strain on the latch & the bodywork.
Thanks for your reply. I have decided against it after a bit of research. Apparently the latches are rated to withstand a large amount of force, but the body work is not. There are reviews where people damaged the actual body of the vehicles. I will stick to using a step ladder.

The latch is designed to stop the door opening in the event of an accident, of course, but I'd be worried regardless, especially the risk of denting the wheel arch panel where the step rests.

I used to have a folding step that hooked over the rear wheel/tire and was much more substantial.

Before that i also had a caravan step where the 4 legs all folded in so it was flat to pack. Again it was much more substantial.
