Roof Pod vs Tray

Hi everyone,

First time posting, apologize in advance if this is in the wrong section.
Me and couple of mates are driving to Perth from Melbourne across Nullarbor and back over 13 days.
We are taking my Ford Territory, there isnt a lot of boot space to pack all our gear. I was wondering what would be the best option between a large roof pod vs tray.

I'm guessing with a tray we'd need to tie everything down, and there will be a lot more noise.
Would the pod be better at fuel efficiency.

With a tray are there any restrictions on what we can put up there. My territory is dual fuel so the spare tire space is gone, would I be able to put a tire on the rack and tie it down?

Are there any special tarps I can use to cover the tray to avoid rain and dust getting in?
