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.

Video Transcript for Thule Motion XT Rooftop Cargo Box Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Thule motion XC rooftop cargo boxes. They're available in 16 cubic feet, 18 cubit feet, and 22 cubic feet in either black glossy or titan glossy. With this box, you're going to be able to carry your skis, luggage and snowboard on the outside of your vehicle, and look cool while doing it. All three boxes have a great capacity. You're going to be able to carry three to five snowboards, five to seven pairs of skis, or a combination of luggage, skis and snowboards.With the 16 cubic foot, you're going to be able to carry skis up to 175 centimeters long. With the 18 cubic foot, you're going to be able to carry skis up to 200 centimeters long.

With the 22 cubic foot, you're going to be able to carry skis up to 215 centimeters long. The pull strap makes it super easy to close, and it's lockable so you don't have to worry about your gear going missing when you're grabbing a burrito. It's easy to open, even when you've got your gloves on. There's plenty of room to get in there and slide the latch.One thing I like is you're never going to have to worry about if your box is closed all the way or not. The red indicator goes away when your box is closed all the way.

The key won't come out unless it's properly locked. Now, a lot of the higher end boxes are going to be able to open from either side. This one's no different. Still, it's a great feature to have.With the gear removed, we can check out some of the stuff here on the inside. Now, on your lower end roof boxes, you're going to have a U bolt style clamp that's going to be difficult to operate.

You're not going to want to be taking it on and off. The toy motion uses power click knobs that are easy to operate. When you hear the click, you know it's tight. The coated clamps keep your cross bars looking new. It's got six anchor points, so you can strap down your gear.

Everything is going to arrive in one piece.Now, most roof boxes are made out of plastic. This one's made out of a durable ABS, so it's not as flimsy as some. Some older roof boxes sacrifice aerodynamics and style for size. Thule has incorporated all three. The high gloss finish is going to give you style, and the shape is going to reduce wind noise and drag. All three sizes have a weight capacity of 165 pounds, though you'll want to be sure and check with your vehicle's owner's manual to see if it can carry that much. Customers on our site compare the Thule motion to the Akima Skyboxes. The Thule motion has more of a high profile design, whereas the Akima Skybox has more of a medium profile. Finally, the motion XT is available in silver and black, whereas the sky box is only available in black.Now that we've gone over the features I'll go ahead and show you how to get it installed. This is going to work with your round, square, arrow, elliptical and most factory roof rack systems. Let's go ahead and set it in place. If you need to get an extra set of hands, go ahead and do so. You'll want to be sure and center it up, and position it so that you can still access your rear hatch. We're all set here.With our box open, let's go ahead and snap our clamps in place. Then we can tighten it down. Check out from underneath. You can see our clamps tightening around our bar. When we hear three clicks, that's how we know it's properly tightened down. Once you've loaded up your luggage and skis, you're going to want to run your included straps. There are three. Then we can just close it up. Then you can lock it up and you're ready to hit the road. That's going to complete our look at the Thule motion XT rooftop cargo boxes.

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 Thule Motion XT in Roof Box

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

Review from a similar Thule Motion XT in Roof Box

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

It also requires 51-1/8 inches between the front crossbar and the line where the roof and hatch meet to confirm there won't be contact with the hatch and you will have full access to your rear cargo.

The aerodynamic bars will also allow for a quiet ride during travel and the top channels let you add channel-mounted carries or accessories with ease.

Just make sure your bar dimensions do not exceed the maximum, 3-1/2-inches wide x 1-11/16-inches tall, and that their center-to-center spread is within the range from 23-5/8-inches to 33-inches.

  • Roof Cargo Box Recommendation for 2018 Toyota 4Runner to Allow Rear Hatch Open
  • If the front crossbar of the roof rack is all the way forward on the raised side rails there's really nothing an aftermarket roof rack can do. It looks like you have a distance of 53 inches from the front crossbar back to the rear hatch seam so you'd need a shorter cargo box like the Thule Motion XT # TH6297B which will easily clear. This box only requires 47-1/2 inches of clearance.

We only have a few cargo boxes available that are compatible with this large of a spread. The most economical box we have that will work with up to a 42 inch crossbar spread is the Yakima SkyBox 12 # Y07334.

This cargo carrier is an excellent choice since it is fairly lightweight (42-lbs) for its substantial 16-cubic-foot capacity; many similar-size cargo boxes weigh more.

First, the Thule Motion will only fit on a crossbar spread between 23-5/8 inches to 36-7/8. Any distance shorter or wider than this range, then the Motion cargo carrier will not fit.

  • Will the Thule Motion XT 18 Cubic Foot Cargo Box Fit a 2010 Lexus RX 350
  • I checked with Thule and the largest box that will fit the factory roof rack on your 2010 Lexus RX 350 will be the large series of boxes, or in this case the Motion XT # TH6297B. Larger boxes will fit the roof rack but will interfere with the rear hatch on the vehicle. You would likely be able to open the rear hatch all the way without interference if you use the large box.

To determine if there will be any interference with the rear hatch when opened there is one measurement to take. First, if you can move the crossbars go ahead and move the front bar as far forward as it will go. Then measure from the center of the front bar straight back to the nearest part of the open hatch. It that distance is greater than 47-1/2 inches then the large...

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.
