Show me your roof box!

so i got my used mazda5 for only 1 week, and am thinking of adding a cargo box.

can someone tell me what are the Pros/Cons going with OEM Mazda roof rack vs going let say Thule?

My brother in law has a thule box that i may be able to borrow, so does that mean i am limited to thule rack? or are they all universal?

if i can't borrow of my brother in law, then i may get the sears one, which looks like its still a thule product.

Which box is that ??
What's inside?

4 folding chairs
2 boogie boards
14x14 shelter
4 person inflatable bed
4 sleeping bags
2 carry-on bags
and 4 pillows (not there but can easily fit.)
also a little room left.

Our big tent, cooler, cooking gear, adult luggage and misc can now fit nicely (and easily accessible) behind the 2nd row.

Here are the final products. 21 cubic feet Thule box. Store guy argued with me it wouldn't fit. Had to show him video that it works.

I made one. Link is above. Not sure if it will clear a moonroof...but I'm sure it could be modded/shimmed to be higher if needed.
