I recognize your issues, but aside from Metro moving his boat tail from one vehicle to another, I really do not think this is a one-size fits-all proposition, unless it were adjustable for different makes and models, which would make it cost more.

However!

How often do you see roof storage (pointed the wrong way)? If they marketed an alternative to roof boxes that were easily accessible and actually slightly increased your fuel economy, while the traditional method made it a bit worse, they probably would not sell very many, but it should appeal to people.

You can invent an easier method and sell some, but people seem pretty determined to keep doing the same thing.
