It maximizes your vehicle's cargo carrying capacity and keeps dirty and damp gear outside of the vehicle. A built-in fairing reduces drag and wind noise, and the mounting hardware is adjustable to accommodate different crossbar spreads. The included 20" extension piece allows you to adjust the basket length as needed.


Aerodynamic, Low-Profile Design

Thule Canyon with Extension and Fairing

The low-profile Canyon XT is wedge-shaped and aerodynamic. A wind fairing attaches to the front of the basket to help redirect air up and over the basket. This helps to reduce drag and wind noise. And the side walls are tapered for easy loading.


Easy Installation

Installed Thule Canyon with Extension

The basket has universal mounting hardware that fits most crossbar styles, and the hardware adjusts to accommodate most crossbar spreads.


Adjustable Mounting Hardware

You can position the hardware anywhere along the bottom of the basket to match your crossbar spread. The hardware easily clamps to basket's bottom rails.


U-Bolts & Hand KnobsInstalled U-Bolts

To install the basket, simply align the included U-bolts under your crossbars and use the hand knobs to tighten them to the mounting hardware. The system includes 3 sets of U-bolts to accommodate most crossbar sizes.


You can also mount the basket directly into your crossbar's top channels using the included T-bolts. Just slide the T-bolts into the crossbar top channels and use the hand knobs to tighten them to the mounting hardware.


Removable Extension

Thule Canyon Basket with Extension

This basket comes with an extension that allows you to customize the length of the basket depending on your needs.


Thule Canyon Basket with Extension

You can bolt all 3 pieces together to create a long basket to carry kayak paddles and other long cargo. To install the extension, loosen the bolts on the bottom of the basket with the included Allen wrench and remove the front of the basket. Slide the ends of the extension into the bars of the basket and re-secure the front of the basket to the extension.


Thule Canyon Basket without Extension

Or simply bolt the front and rear pieces together leaving out the 20" extension to create a standard size basket for bags, camping gear, and other compact cargo.

Fit my OEM Hyundai Palisade crossbars p erfectly.



by:

All items were delivered quickly and as ordered. I would definitely order from etrailer again.



by:

Use this for camping and going to the beach. Works perfectly and holds a lot more than the fancy luggage carriers and costs a lot less. Just buy a waterproof zip up cargo carrier to put everything in and strap it down.



by:

Love this basket. Sturdy, easy to install, super functional. Would never have another car without it.



by:

This was so easy to put together. It fits great on my 2014 Subaru Crosstrek. I plan on loading all the camping gear in it when we go on vacation. The folks at ETrailer.com have been great inn keeping me up to date on the status of my order.



by:

Excellente product, utilized to travel on a Chevy Taho. Great capacity, easy to assemble and installation. Practical no noise during travel.



by:

Easily assembled in about 20 minutes. Sturdy construction and should last a lifetime. Lillian W. was very helpful and courteous through the process.



by:

Excellent quality and looks great!

Takes a little time to assemble and install but the end product is worth it. Now i am worthy to go camping and carry all my stuff with me!

Love my new Thule canyon xt roof cargo basket!! Fits on my 2022 Toyota Prius Nightshade, it was easy to assemble!! Shipping was awesome came in quicker then I expected!!



by:

We were very happy with our Thule roof rack. The low profile design works well and does not have too much wind noise compared to others I’ve had. It’s held up very well also through the seasons.



by:

Great OEM fit and great look. Price was a little on the expensive side but it was easier and quicker to go through etrailer than retailer.



by:

Ordered the Thule Canyon XT Roof Cargo Basket from etrailer. It came within days of oredering and is as advertised. Ordering from etrailer was an excellent experience. They followed kept me informed of the status as we went along and sent me warranty information after receipt George and Carol were great to work with. PS - the installation was a breeze and we used it to haul roof top items on our camping trip last weekend. Thank You - I will certainly not hesitate to order from etrailer again!!



by:

The Canyon XT installed with ease & also provides multiple mounting brackets for attaching to crossbars.

It will definitely give us more interior room or additional cargo capacity!

I highly suggest reading the directions a few times before you start & during assembly. Some parts are in the same bag for a step while other steps need parts from different bags.

Depending on your vehicle, all parts may not be used. So make sure the parts you have left over are the right ones!



by:

Great product and absolutely awesome service. I originally order the Thule Canyon XT basket from a VERY well know online entity. I wasn't able to get a ship date (they said a would be notified via email when a firm date had been established. After two days of waiting for the message, I cancelled the order and checked etrailer.com. They had the same Thule basket at the same price, so I ordered it. It wasn't 10 minutes later that I received an email thanking me for the order and further stating that the product had shipped!!!!!! A UPS tracking number came early the next day!!!! Great product, great price and great service!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks - etrailer..........



by:

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.



by:

Very happy with product and time frame of delivery and the tracking info is always a great asset. Easy to assemble. My only problem was i needed help getting in on the roof of the truck. Also liked the how to and information about the product videos . Thank you . Next item is the cargo bag. :)



by:

Nice balance of quality, fitment, style, and weight. One year and it has held up well. Fits 2019 Toyota RAV4 perfectly.



by:

Excellent basket! Very well made. High quality equipment. Taking a star off because it should have included locking cores at the price.



by:

This worked as advertised! I bought if for a little extra protection to go along with our cargo soft bag (also from etrailer) that I put in our Thule rooftop basket. Worked great on our 16 hour drive.



by:

Perfect fit. Looks very slim and low enough to clear my garage door. Always love Thule products. Make the vehicle looks more rugged with its new curves.

  • Will Extension For Thule Canyon XT Roof Basket Fit Honda Basket
    The Honda roof basket is made by Thule, so if you want to add the extension you can do so with the Extension Piece for Thule Canyon XT Roof Cargo Basket # TH8591XT.

  • Will Thule Roof Cargo Basket with Extension Fit a 2014 Jeep Cherokee
    The Thule Cargo Basket part # TH859XT with the extension part # TH8591XT will fit your 2014 Jeep Cherokee with factory crossbars. I attached a review video that shows the basket being used on a 2014 Cherokee just like yours. The extension section would work just fine and realistically would just make the basket 20 inches longer. The total length would be 69 inches so you can measure that length on your roof. You can also buy these two together as part # TH859XT-8591XT.

  • Recommended Cargo Basket for a 2022 Toyota Highlander LE
    The Thule Canyon XT Roof Cargo Basket item # TH859XT-8591XT you were looking at includes the 20" extension piece item # TH8591XT. This makes the basket 69" long x 40" wide x 6" tall instead of only 49" long. This roof basket will attach to your 2022 Toyota Highlander LE's factory crossbars.

  • Will Thule Canyon Roof Top Basket Cargo Carrier with Extension Fit on a 2008 Hummer H3
    The Thule Roof Top Basket Cargo Carrier Extension, # TH8591XT, is an add on to the Thule Canyon XT Roof Top Basket Cargo Carrier, # TH859XT. If your 2008 Hummer H3 has a factory roof rack and you have the Canyon XT Roof Top Basket, the extension will work on your vehicle. If you do not have a cargo basket yet, you can purchase the Canyon XT cargo basket with the extension with part # TH859XT-8591XT.

  • How is the Thule Canyon XT Measured
    The 49" length of the Thule Canyon XT # TH859XT is measured as the overall length of the cargo basket. The front edge of the basket where the fairing sits does tilt inward and limit what you can put in that space, but not as much as you'd think. The fairing on the Canyon is roughly 5" tall, and you'll have roughly the front 4" long by 3" tall of the basket with the fairing hanging over. You can also get the longer Thule Canyon XT # TH859XT-8591XT to give yourself 20" extra length on your...

  • What Size Roof Top Cargo Basket is the Best Fit for a 2023 Subaru Crosstrek Hatchback
    Roof top cargo baskets are not an item that is fit-guided for specific vehicles because they are designed to be pretty universal to adapt to different styles of cross bars. That being said, the Thule Canyon XT Roof Cargo Basket # TH859XT would be the most appropriate size to avoid interference with your hatchback. The Thule Canyon XT Roof Cargo Basket # TH859XT measures 49" long, I have included a picture of this rack on a Subaru Crosstrek so you can get an idea of how close the 49" basket...

  • 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 if...

  • 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.

  • Will 2022 Honda Pilot Antenna Fit With Thule Canyon XT Roof Cargo Basket
    From what I'm seeing it looks like the OEM crossbars on your 2022 Honda Pilot sit a little higher than the antenna does so you'll be good installing the Thule Canyon XT Roof Cargo Basket # TH859XT-8591XT without any contact.

  • 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.

  • Can Fairing on Thule MOAB Cargo Basket Be Replaced
    The Thule MOAB was discontinued back in 2014 and while some parts are still available for replacement, unfortunately the fairing is not one of those parts. We carry a variety of fairings you can add to a roof rack system but they won't fit directly to the basket. If you really like the design of the MOAB then I recommend checking out the Thule Canyon XT # TH859XT as an alternative to replace your current roof basket. The Canyon XT is also available in a larger version as part # TH859XT-8591XT...

  • Can I Use A Rooftop Cargo Basket And A Roof Mounted Bike Rack At The Same Time?
    We do have a bike rack that can mount to the bars your basket is on, but there is no bike rack that will mount to your Thule Canyon XT Basket # TH859XT-8591XT. The Thule UpRide # TH599000 will work great! Since the Thule Canyon XT is 40" wide and the UpRide is 13" wide, if you had bars 53" or wider you could carry a basket and bike wherever you need to go! Just be sure not to exceed the weight capacity of your roof rack. I have included a video to learn more about the Thule UpRide.

In addition, your vehicle will also be able to fit the Thule Canyon XT with the 20-inch extension piece.
