Cargo boxes, bags, and baskets are great for transporting gear on your vehicle's roof. A cargo box has the added benefits of an aerodynamic shape that reduces drag and wind noise, a hard shell to protect your gear, and a higher degree of weather resistance. And you can latch and lock a cargo box for added protection against theft.

Aerodynamic Cargo Box with Matte Grey Finish

Malone Cargo16 case

With 16 cu ft of space, the Malone Cargo16 has enough room for sports equipment, camping gear, or luggage for 3 to 4 people. The aerodynamic design helps reduce wind noise and drag. The locking lid opens from the passenger or driver side, and it's designed to provide clearance when you open your rear hatch. Quick-attach clamps accommodate most crossbar styles and spreads so you can install the box in minutes without tools. And the durable yet lightweight ABS plastic construction helps to prevent warping, denting, or cracking.

Sturdy, Dual-Side-Opening Lid

Dual Side open

The Cargo16 lid opens from both sides for easy access to your cargo. This means your gear is always close at hand whether you mount the box closer to the driver or passenger side. The extra-stiff lid helps reduce road noise and vibration, and it guards against dents and scratches.

Built-In Lock

lock key

The box includes a built-in lock on both sides to secure your gear. The locks also deter theft of the box itself because it denies access to the mounting hardware. The key can only be removed once it is in the locked position, ensuring the box is securely locked and safe for transportation. 3 locking points on both sides keep the lid secure when locked.

Universal Clamp-On Mounting Hardware

Cargo16 Mounting Clamps

The Cargo16 installs with inward-facing quick-attach mounting clamps. These clamps fit most crossbar styles, and they are inserted into the slots along the floor of the box to accommodate different crossbar spreads. To adjust a clamp, loosen the knobs and move the clamp to the desired location. Then tighten the knobs down to close the clamp around your crossbar.

Malone Cargo16 Rooftop Cargo Box - 16 Cubic ft - Gray - MPG902

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (6 Customer Reviews)

Pro: This box is a perfect option to add to the cargo capacity of my Toyota RAV4. Great for camping, fishing or skiing trips (but watch out that your XC skies don't exceed the length capacity of the box!). Pro: The box fits onto Malone cross bars very securely: once screwed down it's solid. Install and removal is very easy. Con: The front arm that holds the box lid open is attached with a rubber-covered pin at the front, and a metal retainer at the rear, see photos. Without the locking metal retainer, the front arm pops loose off the lid's pin. Initially I thought this was a mfg defect, but this is how it's built. etrailer contacted Malone and both provided great support. Malone sent me a new rubber grommet to insert on the pin at the front arm. But that didn't fix the problem at all. In the end, I replaced the rubber grommet with a metal bolt that permanently attaches the front support arm with the box lid. Would I buy this product again? Probably not.

After a year of ownership, with the front support arm rubber pin replaced with a metal bolt, this box has been great. The top stays open for loading really well now, and the original problem I described above has been solved. Hopefully Malone or the Italian company that builds these boxes has modified their design!?! The box contents stay dry, too. We drove through a storm that dumped 3.5 inches of rain and caused road flooding in places, but everything inside the box remained perfectly dry. A nice feature. Would I buy this product again? Yes!

We received our Malone Cargo Box and are very happy with it. It was installed on a 2016 Subaru Outback. For us, it holds two complete sets of golf clubs, golf shoes, balls, a bag of miscellaneous tie downs, and a small metal carrying case with wheels. We haven't used it on a long trip yet, but locally it's very stable. There is some strong wind noise when the sunroof is open. We also needed to use shims on the rear crossbar to prevent the pod from hitting the antenna. You can access this Box from either side which is nice. Overall we're happy with our purchase.

Didn’t have the one I initially wanted in stock and need for upcoming trip so had to get slightly smaller one. Tammy P. Was super helpful with the orders. Haven’t used it yet but looks like this box is going to work fine. Love the free shipping.

Everything arrived as promised & was packaged well for the journey. No dings or scratches...will happily order again from etrailer, should the opportunity arise.

After using this roof box for the past year, I can say with experience that it is just what I was looking for. It's the right length for skis and snowboards and wide enough to fit several pairs. It also has enough height to fit additional gear on top of the skis and boards. I usually throw and couple duffles and my cooler on top. The duel hinge feature is quite nice when loading/unloading on the street. The product seems to be pretty durable and made of high quality materials. The box attaches to roof rack crossbars solidly. When it is loaded there is very little to no movement while driving at highway speeds.

  • Cargo box and Roof Rack Recommendation For 2019 Nissan Rogue
    Cargo Boxes are not technically vehicle specific, as long as you have a roof rack on the vehicle you can use a cargo box that is compatible with the bars that you have. The SportRack SkyLine XL Cargo Box part # SR7095 fits the most round, square, aero, elliptical, and factory crossbar as long as they are no bigger than 3-3/4" wide x 1-3/16" tall. You will also need a cross bar spread of 21-1/2". Measure from the center of the rear cross bar to the center of the front cross bar for the...

  • Will the Malone Profile18S Rooftop Cargo Box Clear the Hatch On a 2015 Subaru Forester
    The Malone Profile18S Rooftop Cargo Box part # MPG910 will fit a 2015 Subaru Forester no matter what crossbars you are using. That said, if you want to be sure that you can open your rear hatch fully with the cargo box attached you will need to do some measuring. If you have a bare roof with fixed mounting point then I can confirm the Malone Profile18S will clear the rear hatch but if you have raised side rails then you will need to move the front crossbar all the way up and then move the...

  • Will SportRack SkyLine XL Cargo Box Fit 2019 Subaru Outback with Factory Roof Rack
    The SportRack SkyLine XL Cargo Box # SR7095 that you referenced will fit the factory crossbars on your 2019 Subaru Outback Wagon, however I don't believe it's going to work with the crossbar spread (distance between the two bars, on center). This particular box works with a very specific crossbar spread of 21-1/2" and based on my research the factory crossbars on your Outback have a spread of 30 inches, although you can take a quick measurement to verify this. For a similarly sized...

  • Will the Malone Cargo12 Rooftop Cargo Box Fit a 2016 Subaru Outback Wagon
    The correct way to measure the crossbar spacing on a vehicle is from the center of the front crossbar to the center of the rear crossbar. WIth that being said it looks like you measured correctly as the research I was able to gather indicates that you have a 30" crossbar spacing on your 2016 Subaru Outback Wagon. Therefore, the Malone Cargo12 Rooftop Cargo Box part # MPG901 will not work for you. Instead, I recommend using the Malone Cargo16 Rooftop Cargo Box part # MPG902 which will...

  • Roof Mount Cargo Box for a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee with Factory Roof Rack
    The SportRack Horizon cargo box # SR7017 has a good chance of interfering with the rear hatch on your 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee because it is a u-bolt mounted box with limited positioning options. For a good economical box that is a much better fit take a look at the Malone box # MPG902. This box has mounting feet that fit a crossbar spread of 24 to 40 inches from the center of one bar to the center of the other. The mounting feet can slide so you will be able to position the box more...

As for the clamps, they are specced to fit up to 3" wide and 1-3/8" tall bars and the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Bars # RRVA137B-2 are 3-1/8" wide x 1-3/16" tall.
