Mounting Diagram

Trunx Roof Cargo Carrier Dimensions

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.


Trunx Roof Cargo Carrier 4 Person Family Camping

This Trunx cargo box has 9 cu ft of space for sports equipment, camping gear, or luggage for up to 4 people. The aerodynamic shape helps to reduce wind noise and drag. The box opens from the side so you can load and unload it from the passenger's side of your vehicle. U-bolt mounting clamps accommodate most crossbar styles and can be installed in minutes without tools. And the durable yet lightweight HDPE thermoplastic construction prevents warping, denting, or cracking.


Side-Opening Lid

Trunx Roof Cargo Carrier Side Opening Lid

The box features a side-opening lid so you can load and unload your gear from the passenger's side of your vehicle.


Metal Strut

The box features 2 metal struts that support the lid while loading and unloading. Each strut raises independently from the base and latches in place on the lid.


Built-In Locks


Trunx Medium Cargo Carrier Rear Lock

The box includes 2 integrated locks on the passenger's side of the box. These locks secure your gear inside the box, and they also help secure the box to your crossbars by denying access to the mounting hardware.


Safety Latches


Trunx Medium Cargo Carrier Open Side LatchClosed Side Latch

The latches on the front, rear, and passenger's side of the box help ensure that the box is completely closed before you get underway. The latches must be open to load the box.


Security Pins

Three metal pins secure the latches in place. These pins can be swapped out with padlocks (not included) to provide additional security.


Tool-Free Installation

Trunx Roof Cargo Carrier U-Bolt Mounting Hardware

The box installs quickly with U-bolts and hand knobs. Just slip the U-bolts over your crossbars and thread them through the pre-drilled holes in the bottom of the box.


Trunx Roof Cargo Carrier Hand Knobs and Pre-Drilled Holes

Once the U-bolts are in place, set the metal plates over the ends and tighten the hand knobs to secure the box. The box mounts to crossbars with a 22" spread without modification. Crossbars on some vehicles are not adjustable so you make need to drill additional holes in the bottom of the carrier for the right fit.


Trunx Medium Cargo Carrier Reinforced Area

You can increase the maximum crossbar spread to up to 30" by drilling additional 5/16" holes in the floor of the box. These additional mounting holes should be drilled adjacent to the reinforced area of the box floor.


Rugged Construction

Trunx Roof Cargo Carrier Durable Construction

The Trunx cargo box is constructed of a high-molecular-weight and high-density polyethylene thermoplastic. This heavy-duty material resists scuffs, scratches, and cracks better than ABS plastic. It also holds up to prolonged sun exposure and inclement weather.


Convenient Storage

Trunx Roof Cargo Carrier Easy Storage

When the box is not in use, simply remove the lid and place it top down inside the base. This makes it easy to store while taking minimal space.

So this is not the original roof box I had ordered but I am on a time crunch and the manufacturer could not get my original order out to me in the time I needed. Thankfully the folks at etrailer saw my message and called me twice to work things out and even followed up after delivery. As for the box itself it is just mediocre the shell is not very rigid and the hinge system is pretty much useless, the hinge bars must be detached to close the lid and reattached each time to hold it open. The hatch does open wide enough to allow side access but overall quality just seems lacking it is definitely an econobox. I will note however that the folks at etrailer said they would exchange the box for my original choice but I would have to pay for shipping. 436313

Carrier arrived within a few days and the follow up customer service is outstanding. The 18 cubic feet carrier is perfect for golf clubs and other items. It is easy to assemble and install to the roof rails. Looking forward to using it for an upcoming trip. 669087

I bought this car top carrier a year ago. I needed extra storage for our pilgrimage to Florida. Yes, we are snowbirds and proud of it. It is approx. 2700 miles round trip. I’m happy to report the carrier worked flawlessly and provided the extra capacity we were looking for. I would highly recommend this carrier for build quality and a great price. We look forward to heading south again this December and with this carrier we have one less problem to worry about. Note, we added tie down straps for extra security. Not sure this is necessary, but it gave us a little more peace of mind. 551055

So far so good.... shipping was very prompt and the install wasn't bad. I had to drill new holes in the rear for mounting but no big deal. The plastic is a little lighter gauge than I expected however I'm satisfied with the product. I haven't driven the vehicle with it installed yet but we'll be heading to Yellowstone next week so it'll get plenty of test miles. I'll update the review after using product. 643367

You get what you pay for and for the money it's not bad. Plenty of room and easy to install. The mounting hardware is wimpy but seems to be doing it's job. I imagine I will upgrade the hardware at some point. The shell it's self is kinda flimsy but when it's all closed up and latched down it stiffens up. Doesn't seem to move at all traveling at highway speeds and I haven't noticed any new wind noise. If you're going to tour the country living out of your car for 4 yrs this is not the cargo box for you. Using it here and there for family vacations seems to be more of what this cargo box can handle. It's not a direct bolt on application for a Subaru Outback but it's not hard to make it work either. I would also recommend getting some lynch pins for the lid clamps instead of the little spring clips that the cargo box comes with. 512507

I bought this product not knowing much about roof cargo carrier's. I was looking around and doing research when I bumped onto the etrailer website. I decided to browse then finally call etrailer. I had the pleasure of getting Geoffrey as my sales rep. He helped me get my roof rack and this item the roof cargo carrier for my 2014 Honda Accord . I was concerned because I was short on time and I needed it for a road trip to celebrate my daughters birthday in another state. Well after Geoffrey helped me understand what I was buying he also assured me that my items would be delivered very quickly and he was right. I received my items less then a week after I ordered them. I mounted them on my car took me about half an hour to assemble and install on my vehicle. I then went on my road trip and this product was hardly felt while I was driving. If I didn't know that I mounted it I would never had known it was there. No noise, no driving drag. Worked perfectly. There are others a lot more expensive but this 1 is the 1 I needed and I was not disappointed. Thank you Geoffrey and etrailer for all your help will be looking to purchase other things in the near future. You guys made my trip a success. 541265

Let start from the beginning. The process of search, order and make the decision on the site is extremely easy. The purchasing process was easy and I had the order shipped the same day of the order. The order arrived in 3 days since I made the order, I am still surprised how fast arrived. The assembly process was easy and the instructions covered everything. The only problem I found was that my Subaru rack can't be adjusted. Therefore, I made some little modification to the holes location. Once I did, the roof cargo assembly was completed. To test the modification and the roof cargo performance I drove 300 miles. The car managed perfectly, there was no vibration, sound or anything that ruin a smooth drive. The final rating: Site and Purchase 5+ Delivery 5+ Assembly 5 Overall Performance 5+ I am a happy customer. 451523

Went on top of my 2017 Jeep Patriot cross bard without any problem. Took longer to find the ladder than actually fitting and tightening the hold-down u-bolt clamps. Filled it up and took off the next morning. Did 860 miles that day. No vibration noise noticeable down through the roof rack crossbars. Top fits down well enough that no water got in during the one rain storm I drove through. Price was fair, easy to put on and I can reach in it to load and unload from the Patriot's passenger side back door. 703128

I used this with my 2014 Subaru Forester, yakima roof rack system. I traveled across country, from North Carolina to Arizona, with this on, and it worked great! I had it completely full. I didn't even realize it was on the roof! I would recommend this. 465486

Product came well packed, very easy to put together! 5 min. Just the right size for Mini Cooper countryman. Great price. ready for a trip. I will add a lock to the front. Also great to have serval keys for the side locks. 707124



- TRX44FR
by:

Just the size needed and quite true to stated measurements. Since the car does not have room for a spare tire, I plan to use this to carry one on extended trips. Had to give a lower rating since the rear lock plate is mounted slightly lower than the front and would not engage until bent up. The rear lock is also loose in the mount and the back edge is caved in so the lift pin tries to go on the outside instead of inside of the bottom. Have forced alignment and placed in the sun to see if the heat will correct the pin alignment problem. Will try to tighten lock assembly later. 611639

I thought the service was great. In A pinch I needed a last minute gift. I ordered a roof rack a few days before Christmas snd it came in time. I will definitely shop at etrailer again 931499

I installed the Trunx on a Toyota FJ Cruiser. It was an easy install and holds a lot. Attaching the lid was a little tricky, but perseverance paid off. It may be easier with two people. With the lid up, it seems flimsy, but when latched and locked, it is solid. Drove full at highway speeds with no problem. Surprisingly quiet. One issue with the arm that props the lid open. One side has the hole drilled a bit too small and requires a lot of force to attach. I will try to file it larger as both arms are needed when lid is up. Still very satisfied. 916634

I haven't used it yet, but it seems like it will work fine. Made the fit up to my SUV, and had to drill the new mounting holes. No big deal there. We'll see how it does on the road trip. 897745

We are very pleased with our Trunx cargo carrier. we have attached it to a small trailer and plan to pull with our motor cycle. we are not finished with task. thanks 869690

As the video states, it is a functional carrier. A bit flimsy where the two halves meet, and putting the hinge together was a bit much. Needed to have two people for sure to put this together. I do wish there was a type of handle or knob to open the carrier once it was in place on the roof; you have to negotiate pulling at the corners to get it open, and pry at the edges. We haven't used it yet for our trip, so we'll see how it works on the long road trip. 828087

Easy to put together and fit to the roof rack / cross bars. The unit itself seems just a bit "flimsy" compared to a Thule, so school is out how this will hold up over the long haul. Yet to take my first trip with it attached to my car!! 826036

Good deal for the money. A little tricky mating the upper and lower pieces, but after that, no problems. Bolted onto my 2010 Escape (which has an etrailer hitch - no problems) easily, and has taken a couple of 6 hour turnpike runs with no issues. Another good deal from etrailer. 812146

Super easy installation. My only complaint so far is that you have to wiggle the area around the lock to get it to latch when turning the key. 811838

Perfect size. Used on a Pacifica mini van. Easy install (my husband is pretty good at stuff like this though ) we fit a carry on size luggage, a case of water, a big beach bag full of towels, an overnight bag, and a medium size luggage . We still had a little room left after all that too to put any kind of quick shopping bags of souvenirs ! 809513

Good value for the money Fits as expected, good quality manufacture Took it on the toad for a short drive, no issues Looking forward to the same in our upcoming 1300 mile trip!! Etrailer has good communication on order status - very helpful 796890

So far so good. Not bad to assemble and install. Getting lid on was the only real challenge. Assemble on vehicle not bad. Seems secure and did not notice any road noise on test drive. Was able to get a lot stored in box - about amount I thought. Lid seems flimsy when open but knew that from other reviews. When lid is shut it seems very stable. Key locks work ok. Overall, for the price and for someone who will use a carrier a few times a year I think it will work fine. Possible improvements: Make lid slot attachment easier. Make a turn knob clamp on inside box to attach to rails for super easy install/removal and charge $20 to $30 more. 796841



- TRX44FR
by:

Excellent product. Light weight yet sturdy. It easily holds 2 sets of golf clubs, with room for other smaller items as well. It's also stable on the SUV, even with the back rail floating, since none of the rear rail lock positions fit. We've traveled in rain and everything inside stayed dry. In high winds, it didn't present any more problems than driving in a higher profile vehicle normally does. It takes 2 tall people (or 2 short people on step stools) to put it on, but the system is straightforward and easy. A very handy thing to have. 775006



- TRX44FR
by:

Item arrived in good condition. It was very easy to install. Adjusting the crossbars on the car was more difficult than the actual installation of the carrier. Haven't had a chance to really use it and not sure when we will, but so far, we are very happy with it. 764044

  • Crossbars for Installing TRX44FR Trunx Roof Cargo Box on 2008 GMC Acadia
    In order to install the Trunx # TRX44FR roof mounted cargo box on your 2008 GMC Acadia, you'll need to install roof rack crossbars that will attach to your existing roof rails shown in the photo you provided. Yakima provides compatible crossbars as part # Y00432-0433 for sliver or # Y00447-0448 for black. I've linked to product videos for the crossbars as well as the cargo box.

    All Yakima Skyboxes 2009 to current, like # Y07335, feature SuperLatch security latches on both sides, so if one of your lock cores fell out, and you lost one of the lock cylinder housing components, the only solution is to replace the SuperLatch assemblies on both sides with part # Y8880348. This includes two handles, two pre-installed lock cores and a pair of matching keys. The lock core is only designed to slide out when a Yakima Control Key # Y8007835 is inserted, which suggests...

    You can really use whatever you want here when it comes to roof bags, but there isn't going to be one that fits within the 25" crossbar spread you're mentioning. Outside of a rooftop cargo box, the best solution is likely going to be something like the Rhino-Rack Rooftop Cargo Bag - Waterproof - 7 cu ft - 55" x 19-1/2" x 11-1/2" # RRLB200 which can be positioned sideways on your 2019 Nissan Kicks and shouldn't overhang the sides.

    According to my research, the crossbar spread on your 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland is 32", therefore, the Thule Outbound Rooftop Cargo Bag part # TH868 would work but you would lose about 4" of space in the bag if you placed it between the cross bars or you could always place the bag over the crossbar which you can see in the attach photo.
