Thule Roof Cargo Carrier Review - 2012 Volkswagen Touareg

Today on our 2012 Volkswagen Touareg we're going to be doing a test fit on the Thule rooftop mounted cargo basket. This cargo basket is going to measure 49 inches long by 40 inches wide, and at it's highest point at the top of this curve here, it's going to have a depth of about 6 inches. Now, it's going to have a sturdy steel construction as well, it's going to have 150 pound weight capacity. You can see that we already have it up here with 3 of the feet installed, but we're going to show you how to install the final one. The first thing you're going to need to do, is before you get started make sure that you have your adjustments for your crossbar spread. Measure from one point on one, to the one point on the other one, and get your crossbar spread whatever measurement that may be, in this case we are at 30 inches. This can be adjusted and permanently set, so that way when you're pulling it on and off your vehicle you can set it up quickly and easily and easily take it off in a matter of minutes. We'll go and place this other foot on.

2012 Volkswagen Touareg Cargo Carriers Questions

  • The internal dimensions of the Thule Sonic XXL Rooftop Cargo Box, part # TH636S, which you referenced, measure 35-1/2" wide, so if your spare is 30 inches in diameter you should have no problem fitting it inside the Sonic XXL. (See included photo which includes all interior dimensions.) However, the tallest point internally is 15" and it slopes down toward the sides. You could have a fit problem there. I have also included a video review of this cargo box for you to check out.
