Yakima SkyBox 18 Specs

Aerodynamic Cargo Box with Carbonite Texture

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 SkyBox 18 has 18 cu ft of space for sports equipment or camping gear for up to 4 people. The aerodynamic, low-profile design and the dimpled lid with Carbonite texture help to reduce wind noise and drag. The box opens and latches from both sides and is designed to provide clearance when you open your rear hatch. Sliding clamps accommodate most crossbar styles and spreads so you can install the box in minutes without tools. The durable yet lightweight ABS plastic construction prevents warping, denting, or cracking.

Sturdy, Dual-Side-Opening Lid

The SkyBox lid opens from both sides. Whether you mount it closer to the driver's side or passenger's side of your car, this dual-side opening lets you easily access your cargo. If you are parked on a busy street, in a tight parking lot, or even next to a campground picnic table, you have the option of opening the lid from the side of the vehicle that works best for you.

Yakima SkyBox Hinge

Patented EndoSkel stiffeners act like ribs to make this lid 3 times stiffer than other Yakima cargo box lids. The fortified lid has an easy-access edge and spring-loaded hinges that allow for smooth, one-handed operation. The extra-stiff lid also helps reduce road noise and vibration, and it guards against dents and scratches when the box is in storage.

SuperLatch Security System

Yakima SkyBox Carbonite Latch

The SkyBox has SuperLatch security latches on both sides to ensure that the lid is completely closed. The SuperLatch prevents you from removing the key from the lock unless all 3 internal latches are engaged. That way, you are prevented from removing the key and driving off with an unlocked box. This security system also seals the box against dirt and moisture. Each SuperLatch includes an SKS lock core that can be swapped out to make all your Yakima gear keyed alike.

Universal Clamp-On Mounting Hardware

Yakima SkyBox Lever

The SkyBox installs with mounting clamps that slide along tracks in the floor of the box. These clamps fit most crossbar styles, and they adjust for different crossbar spreads. To adjust a clamp, loosen both knobs and slide the clamp to the desired location. Then tighten both knobs and push the cam lever down to close the clamp around your crossbar.

Optimal Rear Hatch Clearance

Yakima Sky Box Undercut Tail

The SkyBox has an undercut tail designed to prevent interference with your vehicle's rear hatch or trunk. This tail provides more space for your hatch to fully open when compared with boxes without the undercut tail.

Cargo Tie-Down Anchors

Yakima SkyBox Track

An integrated track system in the floor of the box provides tie-down points for securing your cargo. These anchor points work great with Yakima's SkyBox cargo net (Y07146 - sold separately).

Yakima SkyBox 18 Rooftop Cargo Box - 18 cu ft - Black Carbonite - Y07336

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (197 Customer Reviews)

92 x 36 x 16. Box has sliding clamps that adjust to crossbar spread and tighten down with cam-action levers. Dual-side-opening lid locks with SuperLatches. Dimpled texture reduces wind drag. Undercut tail provides hatch clearance.


I replaced an old Thule box with this. My opinion is that the locking mechanism, the clamping system, and the hinges are superior to the Thule's. Especially the locking mechanism. I used to have to wrestle the Thule box to get things lined up so that I could close and lock the box. And the bonus is that this box was less money (than an equivalent Thule) and eTrailer shipped it for free!



It worked the entire season 2223 without flaw. Now it will likely collect dust in my garage as I bought a new Tundra to use for skiing. Perhaps Craigslist is in my future...


We have not yet taken the Skybox on a road trip so I can't talk about the box itself. But I can talk about the buying experience at etrailer. 5 stars!. There was a wealth of helpful information about the various choices for cargo carriers, including dimensions and clearance requirements, and I found the installation videos extremely valuable. Great personalized follow-up after the order was placed and after arrival. The Skybox arrived on time, well packed and in great shape.


Fit was perfect will be using it for a long time to come it heavy for one person to try and load it up on the vehicle though


Bought this to replace a Thule box >12 years old that had developed some cracks. The latch mechanisms on this seems a bit more robust, and it has the rear bevel to allow the tailgate to open. Attachment to the crossbars is straightforward and all the pieces remain attached to the box, which is convenient. Arrived in good condition via UPS freight.


Love our Skybox! It has made camping so much easier - it fits so much stuff super securely. With 2 kids it was a no brainer.

I admit it is slightly too long for my 2015 Subaru Outback, but it still works just fine as long as we remember to program the lift gate so it doesn’t open all the way. (Just gotta remember to duck!)

Very quiet too, if it wasn’t for the gas mileage, we wouldn’t even know we had it on our car.


I would give this 5 stars, but it wound up being *just* too long for my roof rack installation. It works, and I've put it through its paces with cross country trips, camping trips, beach trips and any time I need the extra space. It is about 3 inches too long to allow the rear hatch to open completely. That was my fault, but perhaps the total cubic feet could be made up in width and not length as it had ample clearance on those side.

It's a great product. I'm not complaining. I chose the size. I can't give it 5 stars because it's not "everything I wanted and more."


The dual locks can be tricky to engage, but it is very secure once they are latched. I love the internal tie-down points and the massive size, easily swallowed everything I needed for a family of 4 for vacation and then some. I dropped only 1 mpg with the box in place, not too shabby.


Works exactly as advertised. Recommend when looking for roof boxes you get one size larger than you think you need. You'll fill it up. Trust me.


One year later and four trips with this cargo pod. We've managed to stuff camping gear, ski equipment and other luggage into the pod. I really like how it can be opened from either side. Also, it ensures the pod is completely closed before the key is pulled out, providing an extra safeguard.


I wish it didn't have to lock to shut it.
mounting system/clamps are a little over designed. There are much simple and easier ways to do that.


Very nice storage box. Simple install!

deal webiste business..
When i received a email notice that my order was going to be delayed, i called customer service and actually got thru in a timely matter, (which wait time was given )
Then when i got thru, service agent was excellent in English communication(no accents LOL) and
Thorough with options towards helping my delayed scenario..
So now just waiting for my adjusted split order..


Love this cargo box. Easy to install. Light weight and love that it can open from either side. Lots of room


Excellent item. Using it with our 2020 Subaru Outback. Delivery communication from Denver to our place was poor, but that was via a third party. Otherwise fantastic


Fits great on my XC60. Delivery and installation was a breeze!


Easy ordering process and delivered within 2 weeks, completely free of any defects.


Joseph G.


Used it a couple times now. Hold alot of stuff. I like the way is locks down to the roof rack. Rides super easy and does a nice job. Couple awareness items 1. It is big and bulky and two person job to get on roof. Nothing bad about it but just be aware 2- it opens from both sides which is great. Howerver it only opens 45 to 60 degrees and not a full 90 degrees. That makes it a bit cumbersome to put large object in it 3- Think in advance where you want to store it because it is big. 4-i don’t think the claim it totally waterproof so no big deal but during heavy rain during travel, water does find its way in box


It holds up well.


High quality. Sturdy. Nice looking.

    Yakima has stated that the Skybox 18 part # Y07336 is a confirmed fit for the factory crossbars of your 2017 Acura MDX. They don't state whether it will allow your rear hatch to open but I can help you figure out if it will. If you measure from the center of your front crossbar back to the rear hatch seam and that distance is at least 57 inches the box will allow the rear hatch open.

  • Will Sears Sport Cargo Box Fit Thule Crossbars on 2010 Kia Soul
    It looks like the measurement between the two Thule AeroBlade Load Bars on your 2010 Kia Soul should be 30 inches. I do not recommend adjusting this space as it will most likely affect the capacity and integrity of the roof rack system. If you want to use your existing Sears Sport Cargo Box, which requires a crossbar spread of around 23 inches, the only option you may have is to simply drill new holes into the box in order to spread the mounting hardware out to fit the crossbars.

Measure rearward from the center of the front crossbar to the seam where the rear hatch meets the vehicle roof.

  • Roof Cargo Box Recommendation for 2016 Mazda CX-5 with Yakim Skyline Roof Rack
    So I checked with Yakima and their Skyline roof rack on your 2016 Mazda CX-5 with a naked roof should have a crossbar spread of 43 inches. That means that the Yakima long cargo boxes like the Skybox 18 part # Y07336 will fit. This has a crossbar spread max of 42 inches, but that figure includes aero shaped bars which are much wider. Since you have round bars that means you get a bit more room on the outsides of the mounting hardware so this will fit.

  • Will the Clamps On the Yakima SkyBox 18 Rooftop Cargo Box Hit the Roof When Open
    As a rule, roof rack manufacturer don't recommend opening the roof when a roof rack is attached so they don't test for clearance and neither do we. It would be super noisy and you wouldn't be able to see much with a cargo box attached. That said, what I can tell you is that the clamps on the Yakima SkyBox 18 Rooftop Cargo Box part # Y07336 will require at least 2" from the underside of the crossbar which is info you can use to see if it will allow you to open your roof.

  • Will Yakima Skybox 18 Fit 2017 Toyota 4Runner and Allow Rear Hatch to Open
    Measure the distance from the middle of the front crossbar rearward to the seam between the roof and the top of the rear hatch. If the front crossbar is moveable, move it as far toward the front of the vehicle as you can. In order for the box not to interfere with the rear hatch, this distance must be at least 57 inches. If your measurement is less, your 2017 Toyota 4Runner hatch will hit the rear of the Yakima SkyBox 18 # Y07336 box before it's fully open.

They changed the lid supports in February 2010. And upgraded to a Zinc die cast handle in October 2010. We carry the most current version of the box.

    It depends on how much stuff you want to carry. There are many boxes that will fit the factory crossbars on your 2014 Subaru Outback Wagon. If you need a lot of cargo space I recommend a big box such as the Thule Motion 22, # TH6299B. It has 22 cubic feet of storage space. Most Thule boxes have a claw-like mounting system which is easy to use. As far as looks and style, the new generation of Thule boxes are very sleek and modern.

  • How to Open a Locked Yakima Skybox and Get New Keys
    Since the lock number is not printed on the face of the locks on your Yakima Skybox the only way to get it open is to have a locksmith open it. Once the locks are unlocked you can use the control key, # Y8007835, to take the lock cylinder out, get the number printed on the side, and then order new keys. Just let me know what that number is. The control key will only work if the locks are already unlocked.

  • How to Open and Obtain Replacement Keys for Yakima Skybox 18 Roof Mounted Cargo Box
    To get replacement keys, you'd need to have a locksmith pick the lock for you, then use a # Y8007835 change key to remove the lock cylinder. The key number is stamped on the outside of the lock cylinder as shown in the photo I've provided. Say the number on your lock is A139. In that case, you'd order part # Y8771-A139. The last three numerals would be the numbers after the A engraved on the outside of the lock cylinder.
