Thule SUP Taxi XT Crossbar Requirements

Thule Motion XT L Cargo Box

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.


The Motion XT L has 16 cu ft of storage space for golf bags, luggage, skis, snowboards, and other gear. The aerodynamic, low-profile design helps to reduce drag and wind noise, and the locking lid conveniently opens from either side of your vehicle. The box has internal tie-down points for securing cargo, and the PowerClick mounting system offers easy, tool-free installation.


Durable Construction

Thule Motion XT L Cargo BoxConstruction

This cargo box is constructed of durable ABS plastic that is lightweight yet rigid and impact resistant. It has a glossy black, gel-coat finish that is stylish and less susceptible to chips, scratches, and harsh UV rays when compared with paint.


Dual-Side-Opening Lid

Thule Motion XT L Cargo Box Dual Side Opening Lid

The Motion XT features a dual-side-opening lid so you can load and access your gear from either side of your vehicle. Integrated, grip-friendly handles help you easily open and close the lid even with one hand. The lid has lifters that ensure it opens and closes smoothly. There is also a convenient pull cord on the inside that helps you close the lid.


SlideLock System

Thule Motion XT L Slide Lock System

The cargo box has SlideLock locks on each side of the lid. These locks have built-in indicators that let you know if the box is properly latched. 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.


PowerClick Mounting System

Thule Motion XT L 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 Motion XT XL 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 Motion XT XL PowerClick Assembly

The PowerClick assemblies on the inside of the box have fixed anchor points for securing your cargo. Just loop the included cargo straps through the anchor points and pull the straps tight to secure your gear.

Very easy to detach from the cross bars when not needed. This was the reason I wanted a Thule cargo box with the Power Click mount mechanism. The cargo box provides additional storage space and keeps gear out of sight which reduces the odds of someone breaking into our SUV while staying at a hotel for the night. FedEx Freight lost the cargo box for several days and Will at etrailer was very easy to work with and willing to send out a new unit if the original one was not found by FedEx. Etrailer is one of those rare companies that provides post sale support for their customers and why I prefer to buy from them. 899706

Some minor cosmetic issues with the cargo box upon arrival. There was a 6" scratch on top of the box. Not sure if this was a Thule issue or e-trailer issue as cargo box was shipped in original packaging. Called e-trailer customer service and they were extremely helpful and asked what I wanted to resolve issue. Since I needed product that weekend and it was only a cosmetic issue and asked for a credit and they had no issue agreeing to the credit and were very apologetic. Will definitely business with e-trailer in the future. Did not give 5 stars due to cosmetic issue. 820217

I haven't used the cargo carrier but it looks good and seems well built. Mine arrived damaged and etrailer promptly picked it up and shipped another one. That's the main reason for my premature review. Their customer service has been excellent and I wouldn't hesitate to go back to them. 815846

I received an email and a phone call that the unit I had order was no longer available. At that time I was offered another unit which was a newer model. It arrived in a timely manner, in great condition, and was so easy to install. It looks great on top of my Subaru. I can stow most of my camping gear in it and have room for passengers. 762836

Great product. I installed it on my 2018 Lincoln Navigator with no problem. Took about 15 minutes start to finish. Mounts directly to the factory OEM rack. I just used it to haul 5 pairs of skis, ski boots and two large luggage bags... it still had some room to spare! 594489

Great for loading or unloading from both sides. Keeps cargo bone dry unless you open lid to load while raining. Holds all luggage for 5 people to free up interior of Outback for pets and people. Glad I made the purchase. Only knocked the fuel economy back by 2 miles per gallon. An acceptable tradeoff. 666951

Review from a similar Motion XT in Roof Box


Fantastic product so here is my one year review. It opens from either side. You cannot leave it unlocked by mistake. The shape is pretty aero and I have not seen any effect on my highway fuel economy so I have chosen to just leave it on all the time. The attachment points are quick and fool proof so it is easy to put on or take off with no tools required. It is really large so it can hold a lot of stuff and really open up your regular storage space in the vehicle. I give this 5 stars in every way and would buy it again without hesitation. 728506

Great Product! It fits my Chevy Traverse like a glove. I wouldn't want anything bigger. It easily holds two large suitcases plus a couple of smaller duffel bags. Attaching it to the car crossbars takes only minutes and the locking latch to open it is amazing. It makes the car about 7'-4" tall. I forgot about it and drove through a 7'-0" parking garage and hit the ceiling. It flex enough that it didn't break but I still wouldn't advise trying it for yourself. 490062

Review from a similar Motion XT in Roof Box


Buying experience with etrailer.com was easy and fast. Ordered it and received within a week as promised. This was the only retailer that had the Thule Motion XT XL Titanium in stock. I liked that I could track the status of my order even through the shipping coming down to an estimated ETA. As for the box, it looks great on our Wilderness Green 2016 3.6R Outback. The Outback has silver trim along the windows and other areas so it looks nice and we thought the lighter colored box would not absorb as much heat during travel. Fits perfectly and we have about a cm that cleared our garage opening (I think our opening was the standard 81-83 inches). My husband and 12 year old son installed it. My son gave it a 4 for install because the clamps didn't catch just right so it took a few tries to clamp it down. Durability was a 5. He said they scraped it against a few things moving it from garage to the car and then into the basement to store it and didn't scratch up the finish too bad. They took it for a drive with an empty box. My husband said there was a bit of noise but nothing terrible. Another forum said the noise could be due to holes in the design of the original factory installed roof rack. We will find the holes and plug them up to see if that fixes it. My husband said he will feel better if he uses additional straps to tie it down to the roof rack as another precaution to ensure the box doesn't fly off. I forgot to take a picture, but trust me, the Titanium looks good and the XL fits! We considered the Yakima 16 cubic feet Skybox, but for the styling, extra 2 cubic ft with same length box, and the fact we will take this off and on quite a bit for weekend getaways, we thought it was worth the extra money. 902879

  • Recommended Cargo Box for 2019 Toyota RAV4 That Doesnt Obstruct Roof Antenna
    In order to use the Thule Motion XT # TH629706 on your 2019 Toyota RAV4 you're going to need 47-1/2" from the center of your front crossbar to the crease where the roof and the hatch meet. However, it's going to be substantially less than that when it comes to the antenna, so using a long box like this likely isn't going to be the best solution because you're likely going to see some reception issues if it's covered.

The picture I attached shows this box installed on a similar compact SUV to yours to give you an idea the overall look of it.

    For the Thule Motion you are correct about the 16 cubic foot models, # TH629706 for black or # TH629707 for silver, would be the best bet to limit wind resistance on your 2011 Subaru Tribeca. Another option is to use the Rightline hatch saddlebag # RL100B90. Since it is at the back of the vehicle it won't add any wind resistance. And yet another option is to install a trailer hitch, # 75716, and then use an enclosed carrier such as the Transporter # TH665C, Rola carrier # 59109,...

Since the height appears to be an issue for garage door clearance, the distance from the top of your crossbar to the top of the box is 12-1/4 inches. I was able to confirm the interior height of 11-1/4 inches is from the bottom of the ridge on the underside, so from the top of the ridge the measurement is 10-3/4 inches. So you will have...
