Video Transcript for Thule Canyon XT Roof Cargo Basket Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Thule Canyon XT Roof Cargo Basket, with extension. It's part number TH859XT-8591XP. This Thule Canyon XT Roof Cargo Basket is larger than most, allowing you to maximize your vehicle's carrying capacity. You can keep larger bulky items from taking up too much space inside your vehicle or keep dirty or damp here from soiling the inside. Other similar roof baskets have a boxier design. The tapered edges are going to make unloading and loading easy. It's going to work with your round, square, arrow, elliptical, and most factory roof rack systems.

Most other roof baskets only clamp to your vehicle's roof rack system. Not only can you do that with the Thule Canyon, but you can also use your roof rack's T-slot if it has one. This roof basket's faring and low profile design help minimize drag and wind noise when heading down the road. It's made out of a steady, tubular steel construction with a black powder coat finish so it's going to resist rust and corrosion. It's dimensions are 69 inches long, 40 inches wide, and 6 inches deep. You can remove the center extension and reduce it's overall length by 20 inches.

It has a weight capacity of 150 pounds though you'll want to be sure and check with your vehicle's owner's manual to see if your roof can carry that much. The Thule Canyon XT features a limited lifetime warranty. It's very easy to get installed. Let's go ahead and show you that now. I've already got my mounting plates installed on my basket here. I've got it measured out to match the distance of my cross bars.

You'll also need to be sure you have a minimum distance of 20 inches. Go ahead and load it up. Then we'll center it up. Now when positioning it on your roof rack system, you'll want to be sure to leave just enough room so you can open up your rear hatch. Now we can grab our U bolts.

They come in 3 different sizes, depending on your cross bar's thickness. We're going to use the medium one here so we'll go underneath our cross bar, come up through the mounting plate. Then we'll take 2 flat washers, place those over top and then 2 thumb screws. Get those started. Once you've got them tightened down evenly, we can go ahead and repeat the same process with the other 3 sides. Now we can put on our cover. We need to be sure that the side with the hole here matches up with the mounting plate portion here so we'll line it up, make sure it goes in the hole, and then we're going to bring it around and push it in place. Then we can lock it up. Now you do have the option to remove the plastic lock and put in the Thule locking core. You can pick up 4 of those with part number TH544. Now if you want to and your cross bars are T-slot compatible, you can use the included T-bolts instead of the clamps. There's just a hole here in the center of the mounting plate that you would use and then one of the thumb screws. With everything tightened down and secured, let's go ahead and load up some cargo and then we're ready to hit the road. That's going to complete our look at the Thule Canyon XT Roof Cargo Basket with extension, part number TH859XT-8591XT.

Review from a similar Thule Canyon XT in Roof Basket


Received and installed just in time for a family trip to a cabin. This rack was perfect for storing coolers and bags to free up space in the back of the car. The only difficult step in the installation was getting it as close to centered as possible on the roof rails. 593914

Review from a similar Thule Canyon XT in Roof Basket


Purchased this rack and the THULE wind screen shown in picture above is PLASTIC. Would not be a big deal except for when installed it was bent due to the location of the attach points. LOOKED LIKE CRAP. Called to discuss and got the "pass the buck" from etrailer "not our issue-way its made". We took it off but had to put it back on due to a ridiculous amount of wind noise. Poor product. Poor service. Never used again and hitting the trash. Big regret. 592831

Put the rack on yesterday and so far so good. The test will be a 900-mile trip to Wisconsin over several days. Overall, very satisfied with this rack. 199389


Comments

This rack has been great. Used is a bunch of times for stuff that was too awkward for the car, or where there was no room.

Review from a similar Thule Canyon XT in Roof Basket


The product it’s self is great. It’s a Thule product so you know what you’re getting when you order it. Very stylish and the coating on the basket seems like it will hold up. This is something that is not meant to be taken on and off regularly. It does take some time to install the basket. I did it myself in about an hour. I do feel like the plastic wind shield on it could have had a better set up. Doesn’t look to strong but time will tell etrailer customer service also gets 5 stars I ordered this on sale on Black Friday. The item took about 2 weeks to ship but once it did it only took 2 days to arrive. I recieved several emails updating me on my order status which was great comminitication. It seems that basket was delayed due to supplies from Thule because other retailers stopped taking orders on it. Overall the basket looks great on my Subaru Crosstrek and is what I expected from the product. 460734

Products arrived in good condition as expected. Customer service was outstanding! George and Julie kept in constant communication with me regarding one item that was delayed. I asked them if they could sent the rest of the order and it arrived promptly, along with the part that I wasn't expecting until the end of the month. Outstanding!! Being in a field myself that cultivates good customer service these two representatives really took ownership of my order/case and saw it through to the end. Thank you! 498132

I bought this rack because of the look of it. I liked the lines, and the tapered walls. It looks great on my grand Cherokee. It is easy to take on and off once you learn how. Kat from e-trailer helped out a lot, letting me know the status until it arrived. GREAT customer service, and awesome product. Thanks Kat, and thanks e-trailer!!! 215472

  • Roof Mounted Cargo Basket for Leer Camper Shell with Thule Crossbars
  • The Surco Safari Rack you mentioned, part # SPS5084-T400 requires crossbars as a connection point, it will not attach directly to the tracks. The basket is compatible with Thule crossbars. The # SPS5084-T400 you referenced is 84 inches, or 7 feet long. Surco also offers a 5 foot long model, part # SPS5060-T400. The Extended Thule Canyon XT, part # TH859XT-8591XT is about 5-3/4 feet long, but at 40 inches wide it is not as wide as the Surco models mentioned above. It is also compatible...

  • Recommendation for Large Roof Top Mount Cargo Baskets for a 2007 Hummer H3
  • If your 2007 Hummer H3 has a factory roof rack with cross bars that run side to side, there are a few baskets rated to fit. First is the Yakima LoadWarrior Roof Rack Cargo Carrier, # Y07070. The overall dimensions are 44 inches long x 39 inches wide x 6-1/2 inches tall. I have included a link to the installation details below. Second is the Thule Canyon XT with extension, # TH859XT-8591XT. This is a larger basket at 69 x 40 x 6 inches. If your Hummer has no rack but tracks that run...

  • Replacement Thule Cross Bars and Roof Basket on 2006 Land Rover LR3 with Factory Rails
  • I can't tell by the pictures if all the parts are damaged but the Thule roof rack in the pictures consist of the old style 58 inch square bars, Podium foot pack, and fit kit # THKIT3112. The basket doesn't look like a Thule product to me. I'm fairly sure it's the Yakima LoadWarrior # Y07070 or possibly the MegaWarrior # Y07080. Look at the picture I've attached of the mounting brackets off the LR3 compared to the Yakima brackets. Of course, if you wanted, the basket can be replaced...

This is a very strong cargo basket and as you stated has more accessories. The Thule Canyon XT Roof Cargo Basket - Steel - 49" x 40" x 6" - 150 lbs # TH859XT weighing 40 lbs or the Thule Canyon XT Roof Cargo Basket - Steel - 69" x 40" x 6" - 150 lbs...

  • What are the Useable Interior Dimensions for the Thule Canyon Roof Mount Cargo Basket
  • I went out to our demo area and measured the interior of the Thule Canyon XT roof basket # TH859XT. The interior, bottom of the carrier is approximately 39 inches long by 36 inches wide. But the model that has the extension, # TH859XT-8591XT, would work well since it is longer by 20 inches. I have included a link to a video review of this model for you.

  • Cargo Net Recommendation for Thule Canyon XT Cargo Basket

  • Using Kayak Carrier Along With Thule Canyopn Rooftop cargo Basket TH859XT
  • Thule does not offer any kayak carrier accessory that can be fitted to their Canyon rooftop cargo basket # TH859XT. I called my most well-seasoned Thule contact and she confirmed no such product is on the drawing board for the future. In truth, even if such an item was available, it might not be your best option. Since kayak weights vary from the low 30s for smaller sit-on types up to the 140s for well-equipped fishing kayaks the vehicle roof capacity can come into play. The Canyon basket...

  • The real difference in which to get between the Yakima LoadWarrior with Extension, part # Y07070-74 and the Thule Canyon XT, part # TH859XT-8591XT will be between what kind of load bars you have equipped to the 2017 Toyota 4Runner and how its planned to be used.

  • Thule Bike Rack Compatibility with Thule XT Roof Cargo Basket

The shorter # TH859XT will not allow enough space for the bike carrier to fit in the basket and the crossbar spread is not adequate to span the gap. If you want the bike carrier to ride on bars above the basket for more stability, you would need to use a basket with a crossbar like the Yakima MegaWarrior Extra Large...

  • Roof Basket Compatible with 45 Inch Crossbar Spread on 2013 Toyota Tacoma Doublecab
  • The Crossbar spacing of 15, 22, or 29 inches apart on center is for the Roof Basket # C18115 without the extension. I reached out to my contact at Curt Technical and he said the 22 and 29 inches would work with the 29 being more ideal. He also said the 45 inches on center is a possible fit as far as length, but that would put a lot of weight in the center and that isn't recommended without some kind of additional support. For your application with the crossbar spread being so wide,...

  • Will Thule Canyon Roof Basket With Extension Allow Hatch To Open On Subaru Outback
  • With the extension included with the Thule Canyon Roof Cargo Basket on part # TH859XT-8591XT, the overall dimension of the basket is 69 inches long x 40 inches wide x 6 inches tall. You would need a minimum of 20 inches between the crossbars to mount the basket, so that would leave approximately 24 inches or so of basket from the center of the rear crossbar to the back edge of the basket. You can measure from the center of your rear crossbar to the hatch when it is open to determine...

  • Roof Cargo Basket Options for a 45-1/2" Crossbar Spread on a 2018 Chevy Tahoe

We do have alternatives to the Thule Canyon # TH859XT-8591XT basket though which have similar looks to the Rhino-Rack option.

  • Can 2 Extensions Be Used with the Thule Canyon Cargo Basket on a 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport
  • Technically, a second extension # TH8591XT can be used with your Thule Canyon cargo basket # TH859XT-8591XT although Thule does not recommend it and it will void the warranty. To make it work, you would need another crossbar in the middle for support so that the cargo does not cause the basket to sag or possibly fail in the middle. If your 2014 Outlander Sport has the flush side rails that run front to back you can use a single Thule bar, # 853-0182-13, half pack of Podium feet, # TH4602,...

  • I spoke with my contact at Thule regarding the Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack # TH7503-TH7503 that you have installed on your 2018 Volvo XC90. He stated that while the instructions do call for a crossbar spread of 24 to 32 inches on your vehicle, it is acceptable to move to a larger spread of up to 36 inches when mounting your Thule Canyon XT # TH859XT-8591XT with the extension attached. This may allow for a bit of a better fit with the larger basket but the spread you currently have...

  • Thule Canyon XT with extension on 2017 Honda CR-V
  • The Thule Canyon XT with extension, part # TH859XT-8591XT can fit the 2017 Honda CR-V's OEM kit, but you'll have to do a few things to make it work. The roof basket will extend over the top of the sun roof, making it mostly unusable while the basket is installed on the roof. Second, you'll need to move the bars forward if able to better support the weight of the basket.

This basket will mount to the crossbars on your Sienna without issue and you won't need any additional parts to do this. It works with a crossbar spread (distance between front and rear crossbars, on center) of 20 to 37 inches without the extension or 20 to 57 inches when using the extension.
