Great product. Great company. Reasonable delivery time. Would do business with e-trailer again! Thanks 602434

Great rack. Low profile fits on Toyota Highlander into standard height garage. Stays on all winter for skis plus a couple times throughout the year for other trips. Fits at least four pairs of skis. 601609

Perfect for vehicles with limited space between bike carriers for mounting. This was the narrowest clam shell I could find. Fits 2 inflatable stand up paddle boards plus more. The only tricky thing with this unit was figuring out how to change the lock core (it's a different process than other Thule products) to match my other locks on the vehicle, but the etrailer video on this topic came to the rescue. 544286

Ask the Experts about this Thule Roof Box

  • What is Internal Length of Thule Pulse Alpine Rooftop Cargo Box # TH613
    I double checked with Thule and the correct interior dimensions for the Thule Pulse Alpine Rooftop Cargo Box # TH613 are the numbers they list on their site of 82.75 × 23.5 × 10.5. It looks like they may have updated them at some point and we didn't make the needed change. I sent an update to have the correct size listed.

  • How Much Height Above Crossbar Does Thule Alpine Rooftop Cargo Box Add
    You have a keen eye because the Thule Pulse Alpine Rooftop Cargo Box # TH613 is recessed; I checked with Thule and this cargo box will add 11.3 inches of height above your crossbar, making it one of the lowest-profile rooftop cargo boxes on the market. Aside from its low-profile the Pulse Alpine is also among the easiest cargo boxes to handle because it weighs just 30 lbs. It is simple to use with mounting hardware that you only need to tighten with hand knobs and even locks to keep...

  • Can I Open Hatch of 2011 Subaru Outback with Thule Pulse Alpine on the Roof
    The Thule Pulse Alpine cargo box, part # TH613, is too long to open the rear hatch of your 2011 Subaru Outack. If you want to see how close you get I've linked a video that demonstrates it. For another option, the Thule Pulse Medium, part # TH614, is a little larger capacity at 14 cubic feet. There is plenty of hatch clearance with the Pulse Medium and it's listed as requiring only 42-5/8 inches between the front crossbar and hatch.

  • Thule Roof Cargo Box for 2011 Honda CR-V with Factory Crossbars to Carry 4 Pair of Skis
    I suggest the Thule Pulse Alpine, part # TH613, for your 2011 Honda CR-V. It's confirmed by Thule to fit the factory crossbars and can hold 4 to 6 pairs of skis that are up to 210 cm long. The overall weight capacity is 110 pounds. The Pulse Alpine also includes locks. I've linked a video review for you to take a look at as well.

  • Fishing Rod Carrier for a 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    Carrying fishing poles in a roof box is almost identical to carrying skis, in that you're looking at the internal measurements of the box. The Thule Pulse Alpine, pat # TH613, measures 84-1/2 inches long internally so it would be ideal for you. It also includes locks which is great because security is one of the main advantages you get from going with a box. The Inno Fishing Rod Carrier, part # INIF3, will be limited to the overall length of the vehicle. The rack installs into the...

  • Thule Cargo Box Recommendation that Allows Rear Hatch to Open
    To determine if the Thule Pulse Alpine Roof Cargo Box part # TH613 will allow the rear hatch of your 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon with factory crossbars to open will require you to take one simple measurement. You will need to measure from the center of the front crossbar back to the seam on the hatch. If that distance is greater than 55-1/4 inches this box will allow the rear door to open. We had a customer with a similar 2015 Subaru Outback tell us that the distance they have there was 51...

  • Which Thule Roof Box Will Allow Rear hatch To Open Fully On 2015 Toyota 4Runner
    To make sure a roof box allows you to open the rear hatch fully, you can take a quick measurement. Move your front crossbar forward as far as it will go and measure from the center of the crossbar back to the seam between the roof and the rear hatch. That is called 'Front Clearance'. I have attached a chart that gives you the front clearance requirement for the Thule roof boxes we offer. For example, the Thule Alpine, part # TH613 needs a front clearance of 55-1/4 inches. And will fit...

  • Comparing the Thule Pulse and Force Alpine Cargo Boxes for an Audi A4
    The Thule Pulse Alpine cargo box # TH613 is the new economy, entry-level box. It opens on one side only, is constructed of durable ABS plastic, and has easy-grip mounting feet that mount in about 5 minutes. The Force XT, # TH6356B, is a step up from the Pulse. It features a diamond textured aeroskin for added durability. It is more sleek and aerodynamic. This box uses tool-free quick-grip mounting feet. The lid opens on either side. The Pulse is 11 cubic feet and 88-1/2 inches long whereas...

  • Can a Thule Pulse Alpine Cargo Box be Mounted to Round Yakima Crossbars
    A Thule cargo box like # TH613, will fit on Yakima round crossbars. Usually, on a cargo box page, in the specs section we will list compatibility. For the Ascent 1100, it fits Thule standard, Rapid Aero, AeroBlade and Xsporter load bars; Yakima bars; and most factory-installed luggage racks. Also make sure to check the owners manual for the capacity of the roof and do not exceed it.

  • Recommendation to Replace Older Thule Summit Rooftop Cargo Box
    I spoke with my contact at Thule regarding your older Thule Summit Ski/Cargo Box. He stated that this particular model cargo box measured 91 inches long, 13 inches tall, and 17 inches wide. Although a bit wider and just a tad shorter, the closest current equivalent from Thule is with the Thule Pulse Alpine Rooftop Cargo Box # TH613. This is a really nice cargo box that measures 88-1/2 inches long, 25-1/2 inches wide, and 12-1/2 inches tall. It provides 11 cubic feet of carrying capacity...

  • Thule Roof Cargo Boxes That Fit a 2014 Subaru Forester with OEM Roof Rack
    All of the Thule roof cargo boxes that we carry will essentially fit your 2014 Subaru Forester with the OEM roof rack. If you check out the attached installation video of the Thule Pulse Alpine # TH613 you can see that it still clears the rear hatch on a 2015 Forester, which has the same dimensions as your 2014 Forester. Since this cargo box requires the most clearance it means that anything smaller will fit. I confirmed this with Thule as well. I recommend going with the Force XT that...

  • Best Crossbars Factory or Aftermarket to Mount Thule Pulse Alpine Cargo Box on a Ford Explorer
    The Thule Pulse Alpine cargo box # TH613 is designed to fit round, square, aero, elliptical and most factory crossbars so it does fit well on all of those. There are some exclusions though so I would need to know the year of your Ford Explorer to determine if the box fits the factory or dealer bars. The best fit is going to be on Thule bars since they are testing primarily on their bars so that doesn't mean the box will not fit well on other bars too. I did check on a 2014 Ford Explorer...

  • Recommended Roof Box For 2011 Subaru Outback With Limited Space Above Roof Rack
    I called my contact at Thule and asked about the roof boxes and where the measurement is made in the description. They told me that the measurement is made as if the box was sitting on a flat table to the highest point on the cargo box. From the measurement you said you have for clearance from the top of your roof rack on your Outback, the Thule Pulse, part # TH613 would be too tall. You would need a box that has a shorter measurement.

  • Will the Thule Pulse Alpine Cargo Box Interfere with the Rear Hatch on a 2014 Subaru Forester
    I spoke to my contact at Thule and she told me that the best way for you to determine if you have enough clearance would be to open the hatch on your 2014 Subaru Forester and measure from the crossbar back to the nearest portion of the hatch. If that distance is greater than 26 inches then the Thule Pulse Alpine Rooftop Cargo Box # TH613 should fit without interference. The reason for this is that when the rear mounting bracket is slid into the rear-most position it measures 26 inches...

  • Will Thule Cargo Box # TH613 Fit 2013 Volkswagen Jetta With Factory Crossbars
    In order to make sure you choose a roof box that will work on your 2013 Volkswagen Jetta, you will need to take a measurement. You will need to know the crossbar spread, or the distance from center to center of the crossbars on you roof. For the Thule Pulse Alpine Rooftop Cargo Box, part # TH613, the minimum crossbar spacing is 23-5/8 inches and the maximum spacing is 35-3/4 inches. If your crossbar spread is between those numbers, the # TH613 will work well for you. I have attached...

  • Roof Top Cargo Box Orientation Recommendation for Minimum Wind Resistance on Vehicle Roof
    I would recommend you orientate the Thule Pulse Cargo Box # TH613 as far to the back of the vehicle as you can when installing it on your roof if you are looking for the best aerodynamics. This will reduce air from getting underneath the front of the box while at highway speeds. I attached a review video for this box as well.

  • Will The Thule Pulse Alpine Cargo Box Fit a 2013 Mazda 3 Hatchback without Hatch Interference
    To determine if the Thule Pulse Alpine cargo box # TH613 will fit your 2013 Mazda 3 without hatch interference you will need to take a measurement. Measure from the center of the front crossbar straight back to the seam between the top of the hatch and the roof. If that measurement is greater than 55-1/4 inches, the box will fit. The Pulse Alpine measures 25-1/2 inches wide so it is possible, depending on the usable width available on the crossbars, to mount an additional item. However,...

  • Will the Thule Pulse Alpine Cargo Box fit on 2012 Toyota Highlander with Factory Roof Rack

  • Fitting a Cargo Box to a 2016 Acura MDX
    You have a couple of options for this situation. Prior to any changes, I'd take a minute and get the full clearance that you have on your vehicle. To get this, you'll measure from the center of the front bar to the line where your roof meets the hatch. This is your available clearance, and your roof boxes will need to have a clearance requirement of less than this measurement to fit. You can check the measurement of your Evolution box by measuring from the center of the rear mounting...

  • Does Thule Cargo Cargo come with Crossbars, Make Noise on Roof, Resist Water
    The Thule Pulse Alpine Rooftop Cargo Box, part # TH613, which you reference, does not come with crossbars. It sounds like you have factory rails so to complete your roof rack system I recommend the Thule WingBars roof rack system, parts # TH711200 and # TH710401. These crossbars are some of the quietest bars on the market and do not sacrifice strength. I have included a video of this rack installed on a different vehicle for you to check out.
