Thule Vector Alpine Cargo Box Crossbar Requirements

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.


Thule Vector Alpine Cargo Box

The Vector Alpine lets you transport skis, snowboards, and other gear on the roof of your sedan or crossover. The Alpine has a lower clearance than the Vector M so you can pull your vehicle into the tight condo garages found in ski country. The aerodynamic, low-profile design helps to reduce drag and wind noise.


White Interior Lid with Integrated LEDs

Thule Vector Alpine LED Lights

The interior of the lid houses 2 LEDs so you can easily see your gear as you load and unload at night. The lights can be set to detect motion so they will automatically activate when you open the lid. They can also be completely shut off. The white interior lid reflects the light within the box for increased visibility. Includes 3 AAA lithium-ion batteries.


Dual-Side Opening Lid

Thule Vector Alpine Cargo Box Dual Side Opening Lid

The Vector Alpine lid opens from both sides so you can load and access your gear from either side of your vehicle. Integrated handles help you easily open and close the lid even with one hand. The lid has lifters that ensure it opens and closes smoothly, and there's also a convenient pull cord on the inside that helps you close it.


SlideLock System

Thule Vector Alpine Slide Lock System

The cargo box has SlideLock latches on each side of the lid. These locks have built-in red indicators that let you know if the box is not completely closed. The keys cannot be removed from the locks unless the lid is closed and locked. This prevents you from driving with an open or unlocked lid. The locks include Thule One-Key-System cores so you can swap them out to make all your Thule accessories keyed alike.


Quick-Release Mounting System

Thule Vector Alpine Cargo Box PowerClick Mounting System

The box can be mounted on your vehicle in less than 5 minutes with the PowerClick mounting system. These clamps adjust along tracks in the floor of the box to accommodate different crossbar spreads.


Thule Vector Alpine Cargo Box Dials

To install the box, set it on your roof rack and center the clamps over your crossbars. Then simply turn the dials to tighten the clamps around the bars. The dials click when the clamps are secure.


Cargo Tie-Down Points

Thule Vector Alpine PowerClick Assembly

Inside of the box there are 6 fixed anchors that provide tie-down points for securing your cargo. Just insert your gear into the slots, loop the included cargo straps through the anchor points, and pull the straps tight to secure your gear. The interior of the base is lined with soft felt to cushion your gear and help prevent it from sliding around as you travel.

It's been a year and have used the Thule Vector Alpine cargo box for ski trips and over the summer for regular trips. The box fit 4 pairs of skis with a little extra room for soft stuff. For regular trips it fit plenty of bags and allowed us to use the third row of seating in the car. The box looks great on the car and the fact that it opens up from both side is extremely helpful.



by:

Incredible roof box! It fits everything we need it to (including 190+cm skis!) and looks great on our 2019 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk. Highly recommended!

My only slight complaint is the lights tend to fall out of their holders, but they're easily put back. A more secure mount would be a welcome improvement.

Fits my Volvo V90cc well. We’ll made and easy to mount on the factory Thule bars. Overall a great experience from Thule and etrailer.

  • Is The 13 Cubic Ft. Thule Vector Alpine Rooftop Cargo Box Compatible With A 2015 Subaru XV Crosstrek
    Any of Thule's boxes in the Alpine series will be longer rooftop cargo boxes. They are designed to be long enough to carry skis and snowboards. If you decide to go with the Thule Vector Alpine Rooftop Cargo Box - 13 Cubic Ft - Gloss Black, part # TH613501, there will be some overhang. This overhang will affect the gas mileage of your Crosstrek but that is about it. If you do not need to carry long items you might be better served going with a shorter rooftop cargo box. I have included a...

    Yes. The Thule Vector Alpine Rooftop Cargo Box # TH613501 will fit on your 2019 BMW X3 as long as the crossbars are no more than 3-1/2" wide and 1-11/16" tall and you have at least 47-1/2" from the front cross bar to the rear hatch opening. The Vector Alpine is going to provide you with the greatest combination of storage and low profile that will still safely fit on your BMW X3 and still allow you to open the rear hatch without interference from the cargo box.

  • Can The Thule Vector Alpine Rooftop Cargo Box Fit A Standard Golf Bag?
    The Thule Vector Alpine Rooftop Cargo Box with LEDs - 13 cu ft - Metallic Black # TH613501 that you referenced should have no problem fitting a standard golf bag with clubs. The box has inside dimensions of 80-1/2" long, 25-1/8" wide, and 11" tall. I measured my standard golf bag for reference and I came up with 47" tall (including clubs), 9" deep, and 12" wide.

  • Height of the Thule Pulse L on a 2011 Toyota Prius
    Though this will widely depend on your crossbars, the Thule Pulse L, part # TH615 is about 16-1/2 inches tall, and with the 59 inch height of your 2011 Toyota Prius will exceed six feet without the crossbars at around 75.5 inches tall. A comparable sized box that will have a lower profile is the Thule Vector Alpine, part # TH613501. This box is about 4 inches shorter at 12-1/2 inches tall, and would result in a total height of 71 inches, barely clearing your 6 foot height without adding...

This is large enough to carry multiple pairs of skis but the exact count depends on their dimensions. Probably at least 4 to 6 pairs of skis and maybe 3-4 decent sized snow boards.

  • Can Thule UpRide Fit Prinsu Rack
    If the 20mm x 20mm t-bolts of the Thule UpRide Bike Rack # TH599000 won't fit your Prinsu roof rack, you can still use it because the UpRide also clamps around the crossbars. It looks like the Prinsu uses 2" wide x 1" tall crossbars, so you can just use the clamps of the UpRide to secure it to your Prinsu rack.

    The easiest way to determine if the Thule Vector Alpine Rooftop Cargo Box # TH613501 will fit your 2021 Toyota RAV4 TRD Off-Road, is going to be to measure your crossbars.

  • Will Thule Vector Roof Cargo Box Fit Prinsu Crossbars of 2021 Toyota 4Runner
    The Prinsu crossbars of your 2021 Toyota 4Runner are perfectly compatible with Thule roof cargo boxes like the Vector part # TH613501 that you referenced. This is a narrower box too at 35 inches so you should have no problem fitting a Topride part # TH75JV next to it on your bars. You might still measure the width of your bars to be totally sure though. This bike rack also would fit the Prinsu bars as well.

  • Can Thule Vector Alpine Roof Box Fit With Thule Bike Rack on 2015 Mercedes E-Class Wagon
    Nope, the AeroBlade Edge roof rack on your 2015 Mercedes-Benz E63 Wagon isn't wide enough to fit both a bike rack and the Thule Vector Alpine Rooftop Cargo Box # TH613501. That will be true of any rooftop box with that roof rack though so to use your bike rack and the Vector Alpine # TH613501 you'd also have to get a new roof rack, the Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars # TH711220 and Raised Rail Feet # TH710401.

  • Comparing Yakima Sky Box 16 and Rhino-Rack MasterFit Cargo Boxes For 2017 Subaru Crosstrek
    The Yakima Skybox NX 16 # Y95AV is exactly what I recommend for you. This is due to it having a large storage size of 16 cubic feet and the fact that the SkyBox will mount forward on your vehicle giving you an additional 4-1/4" of rear hatch clearance over many other boxes making this rack more likely to allow you to be able to open your hatch. In addition to this I went out and measured the flat surface of this box and the Skybox is a clear winner, the roof is mostly flat, so mounting...
