    Cargo nets/cages for SUVs

    I have an Acura MDX and after doing more research I really want to find a way to travel more safely.

    I am concerned with cargo. I like the space this car allows and all of it's other safety features. Acura has a cargo net available that extends to the roof behind the second row seats for lightweight objects. I plan to get one, but I'm wondering if there is anything even better out there?

    And what do I do with suitcases, strollers, etc.? I saw something about bungee cords but what do I attach these to to keep these items secure?

    Thanks for any help!

    Not much to tell you-

    I use cargo nets and bungee cords. I attach the bungees to cargo hooks or tether anchors (ones not used by carseats). Some companies have cages as accessories- they get bolted inside the vehicle usually for pets. These would work quite well if Acura has one, I know Subaru does for some models.

    I've heard of some upcoming products for this, but don't have any links to offer you at this time, sorry!
