2011 Honda Pilot Cargo Carriers Questions

  • Yakima indicates that the minimum clearance measurement that is needed for the # Y07337 is 57 inches. This measurement is taken from the center of your front cross bars to the location of the nearest obstruction. If your cross bars are adjustable I would recommend adjusting them to the maximum allowable distance before taking this measurement. As long you have at least 57 inches of clearance the # Y07337 will fit on your 2011 Honda Pilot without obstruction or interference...

  • In order to determine if the Carpod Walled Cargo Carrier, # M2200, or any trailer hitch mounted accessory will fit your 2011 Honda Pilot Touring Edition, you will need to measure the distance from the center of the hitch pin hole out to the distance required to clear the rear bumper. If that distance is less than 4 inches, the carrier will fit. The carry is designed for 2 inch trailer hitch receivers so it is compatible with the factory hitch on your vehicle. I have included...

  • The Thule Force XXL Cargo Box, # Force XXL, is one of our longer cargo boxes at 92-1/2 inches long. Even on a larger vehicle, it is entirely possible that the rear hatch could make contact with the box. In order to reduce the possibility of contact and/or to make the contact point further back so the hatch can open further, there are some measures you can take. First, the box itself mounts using feet that are adjustable. If you put all four feet back as far as they can go,...

  • The Thule Transporter Combi Hitch Mounted Enclosed Cargo Carrier # TH665C has inside dimensions of 48-1/2 long x 23-1/3 high x 24-1/2 wide. You can compare the length of your golf bags/clubs to see if they will be compatible. Since the height and width are both about 2-feet odds are good that 4 sets of clubs can fit if they are not too long. It may be best to load the bags facing in alternating directions. You can add a lock core to this carrier, part # TH512, to allow you...

  • After adding the right crossbars, the Thule Pulse Large Cargo Box, # TH614, will fit your 2011 Honda Pilot. To add cross bars, you will need 2 parts. First, you will need the Thule Crossroad Roof Mounted Roof Railing Foot Pack, # TH450, that mount to the side rails on the roof. Next you will need 58 Inch Load Bars, # THLB58. With the crossbars installed you can mount the cargo box. Make sure to go by the weight capacity rating of the side rails or the vehicle roof, whichever...

  • The Thule Interstate Roof Rack Cargo Bag, # TH869, is really designed to attach to a vehicle that does have crossbars that run side to side. The placement of the straps at the front and rear of the bag ensure a proper fit to crossbars. You could still use it with just side rails but crossbars are recommended to keep the bag from moving back and forth on the roof during starts and stops. To add crossbars you can use the Thule Crossroad Roof Mounted Roof Railing Foot Pack, #...

  • First the Thule Atlantis 1800 was an 18 cubic foot box. The Sonic XXL # TH636S is a 22 cubic foot box so it is much larger. All of the new Thule boxes are longer than previous generation boxes in most cases. The rear hatch on the 2011 Honda Pilot could only be opened part of the way with the hatch door basically parallel with the roof. You would have to hold it open otherwise the Sonic XXL box and hatch would rub against each other. The Sonic XL, # TH635S, is 10-1/2 inches...

  • In many cases, the 4-3/4 inch folded clearance is plenty, but you will need to measure on your vehicle to make sure. Measure from the hitch pin hole in your receiver rearward until you reach furthest rearward edge of the back bumper. If this distance is less than 4-3/4 inches, the # MT70260 will have plenty of clearance for your vehicle. The OEM hitch on the Pilot is pretty close to the edge of the bumper. You will first need to determine the tongue weight capacity of your...

  • The Rage PowerSport Aluminum Double Motorcycle Carrier, part # AMC6002, can carry up to 600 pounds. The OEM Class III hitch on your 2011 Pilot may have a lower tongue weight capacity. You should be able to find a safety/warning sticker on the hitch that indicates its capacity. The lower-rated item, hitch or carrier, determines the overall capacity of the combined system. I researched the weights of your two Vespas, 150cc and 250cc, and they can vary somewhat based on specific...

  • To determine if the Yakima Skybox Pro 16s will fit without rear hatch interference on your 2011 Honda Pilot you will need to take a measurement. First, if the crossbars that run side to side on the roof can be moved, move the front bar as far forward as it will go. Then measure from the center of the front bar straight back to the seam between the top of the hatch and the roof. If that distance is 52 inches or more then the box will fit without hatch interference.

  • The 2011 Honda Pilot comes equipped with a 2 inch hitch, therefore, the Rage PowerSport Steel Motorcycle Carrier # MX600 will fit your current hitch, however, you will want to check your owners manual to verify the tongue weight capacity of your hitch before any cargo is loaded. The carrier is 64 pounds and, based on my research, your scooter is approximately 180 pounds. You will want to make sure that the combined weight of the carrier plus the scooter (approximately 244...

  • Thule does list the Force Large box, # TH624, as a fit on the 2011 Honda Pilot with Factory installed crossbars. The factory set position of the crossbars is already at the proper spread. The box will fit a minimum crossbar spread of 23-5/8 inches.

  • I would go with the Thule Force XXL Cargo Box # TH626. This is a very large cargo box that Thule has confirmed will fit without hatch interference and should not go over your windshield at all. You will need to move the mounting hardware of the box as far back as possible.

  • If you use the link I've provided, you can see the turndown exhaust tips we have available. You'll need to measure the outside diameter of your tailpipe in order to get the correct tip. I don't have a ready reference that would tell me the diameter of the exhaust pipe of your Pilot. In order to place your cargo carrier as far away as possible from the exhaust pipe, I'd recommend using a carrier with a long shank that's angled raise the cargo platform as much as possible....

  • If by soft you mean not a hardshell cargo box like # TH615 then you will not have to have crossbars. Some roof mount cargo bags will fit even if the vehicle does not have a roof rack. I have included a link to all of the bags that fit this description. Out of the options the best one would be the Yakima FarOut Pro, # Y07173. It is aerodynamic and has a maximum space of 12 cubic feet. If you want to add crossbars the most economical option is # SR1009 for a 2011 Honda Pilot...
