Thule SUP Taxi XT Crossbar Requirements

Thule Motion XT XL 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 XL has 18 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 XL Cargo Box Aerodynamic Design

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 XL 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 XL 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 XL 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.

Average Customer Rating:  5.0 out of 5 stars   (7 Customer Reviews)

84-1/2 x 36 x 17. Roof box mounts to your crossbars with PowerClick clamps. Locking lid opens from either side of your vehicle. Great for carrying skis, snowboards, and other gear on crossovers and mid-size wagons. Durable ABS plastic construction.

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

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

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

Do you have a question about this Roof Box?


  • Car Top Carrier for a 2018 Subaru Outback and a 2013 Subaru Outback
  • Both your 2018 and 2013 Subaru Outback have fairly standard crossbars, so your pick will be more about fitting to both vehicles and being able operate their rear hatch without hitting the box. To get this clearance, you'll measure from the center of the front bar to the line where your rear hatch meets the roof on both vehicles. To ensure a compatible fit, you'll want to pick boxes that have a required clearance of less than the shortest of the two measurements you took. This required...

  • Will the Thule Motion XT XXL Fit a 2013 GMC Acadia with Factory Crossbars
  • The Thule Motion XT XXL, # TH6299B, is a large cargo carrier at 22 cubic feet of cargo volume. Unfortunately, Thule does not recommend this size of Motion XT for the roof of a 2013 GMC Acadia. The Thule Motion XT XL, # TH6298B, at 18 cubic feet is the largest carrier of the Motion cargo boxes that they recommend for your 2013 Acadia with factory crossbars.

I spoke to my contact at Thule and they said you should have no issues using the Thule Motion XT Rooftop Cargo Box part # TH6298B with the AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack. The distance from the center of the two crossbars once installed will be 31-1/4" therefore will work with the crossbar spread of the Thule Motion XT which is 23-5/8" - 36-7/8".

The part # TH6298B is the larger, black version of these boxes at 18 cubic feet compared to the 16 cubic feet of the other boxes. The part # TH6298T is the gray version of this as well.

  • Recommended Max Capacity Rooftop Cargo Box for a 2016 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • Thank you for all of the information, it is always very helpful to be able to narrow things down quickly. The rooftop cargo box that best fits your description is the Thule Pulse Large Rooftop Cargo Box # TH615. This cargo box is 16 cu ft and comes in Matte Black. Since the clearance measurement is 46-3/8 inches you will have more than enough room for rear hatch clearance on your 2016 Subaru Outback Wagon.

  • First let's talk about the the roof capacity. The 132 lb capacity you have is the total roof capacity so you would not double that to get the overall capacity. For rear hatch clearance you can take a quick measurement from the center of the front crossbar rearward to the seam between the roof and rear hatch. That is the front clearance measurement that allows the hatch to be fully opened with a roof box installed. For the Thule Motion XT # TH6297B the front clearance is 47-1/2 inches...

  • First the Thule Atlantis 1800 was an 18 cubic foot box. The Motion 22 # TH6299B is a 22 cubic foot box so it is much larger. The rear hatch on the 2011 Honda Pilot could only be opened part of the way with the hatch door basically parallel with the roof. You would have to hold it open otherwise the box and hatch would rub against each other. The Motion 18, # TH6298B, is shorter than the 22. It would be a better fit.

The box is short at only 16 inches tall and it is probably the most aerodynamic box available. That means less drag and noise when you're driving. Thule designed the box with a more pointy nose than other boxes for exactly this purpose. They claim it can reduce drag as much as 35 percent compared to other...

But with the box installed it will interfere with the rear hatch and you will not be able to open it all the way. The largest box that you can use and not have interference issues with is the smaller Motion cargo box, # TH6298B. If the hatch interference does not bother you then you can still use the larger box.

  • Comparing the Thule Force XT and Motion XT Cargo Boxes for a 2015 Audi Q5
  • The Thule Motion line of boxes including # TH6298B did replace the Sonic line but the design of the Motion is more angular. This is a premium box whereas the Force XT line including # TH6358B is a lower cost line. The locking/handle mechanisms are upgraded on the Motion as well. The Force XT box is still an excellent cargo box and if I were choosing between it and the Motion I would probably go with the Force XT because you aren't giving up all that much if you do.
