Video Transcript for SportRack Vista XL Roof Cargo Box Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the SportRack Vista XL Rooftop Cargo Box with 18 cubic feet of space in black, part number SR7018. This cargo box will help protect your gear from the elements as well as free up space in your vehicle. As you can see it attaches easily to most roof rack systems using it's universal hardware. It includes a lock and key and opens at the back which gives us access to our gear from either side of the vehicle. Here on the inside you can see the nice ABS plastic construction, as well as the thumbscrews that help secure our cargo box in place. It's got a nice aerodynamic shape that helps reduce drag and wind noise on your roof. It's exterior dimensions are 63" long by 38" wide and 19" tall.

It has a weight capacity of 100 pounds. Now that we've gone over some of the features I can go ahead and show you how it installs on our load bars. I'll set it on top, we'll line our holes up on our load bars, push it on. We want to make sure that it's centered up with our vehicle. That looks pretty good. Now we'll come around back and we'll open it up.

Now that we've got our cargo box opened up we'll grab some of our hardware. We've got two plates here, we're going to take the big one first, slide it underneath between our load bar and our cargo box. We're going to line up the holes. Once we've got that lined up I'm going to grab our clamp and run that up where we've got our holes aligned. Now that we've got our clamp run up through our holes, we'll take our smaller plate and place that over the top. Once we have that on top we'll take our thumbscrews, screw that over the top here and then another one and do the same thing.

Once we get these tight we'll repeat the same process for the other three locations. Now that our box is secured to our rooftop system we can go ahead and load up our gear and hit the road. That's going to do it for the SportRack Vista XL Rooftop Cargo Box, 18 cubic feet of space in black, part number SR7018. .

Our family of 4 took two trips with this box. One was a week-long driving/camping trip from Texas to Appalachian Mountains. It has plenty of room for sleeping bags/tent/chairs/misc. We drove about 80 mph on open highway, drove through rainstorms and had no problems. I have a 2013 Toyota 4Runner and needed to buy crossbars that fit my vehicle before installing the box. I learned not to leave loose clothing in the cargo box while driving on the highway. Small clothing can get sucked out of the small sliver of an opening created along the side while driving fast. Now I put towels, dirty clothes in a duffel bag to prevent this. Remember to avoid parking garages! 350462

It was a great purchase. Easy to install on my town and country. Kept the beach stuff in it all summer so it was ready to roll whenever we wanted. The sand stays out of the car and everything stayed dry. It was quiet when driving. I'd recommend this to anybody. 521093

The sport rack has become very handy in our family vacations thru the year. Is very steady and as of now it had withstand rain, snow and high wind. our new use to the sport rack is that every time we go for vacation we put a decal of the places we visit, I am very please with the product, and I don't have picture of it. I installed the sport rack on a 2012 Chevy Traverse, so is a little high on the roof, but gave us the space necessary for a family of 6. 349342

Do you have a question about this Roof Box?


  • Roof Cargo Box Recommendation for 2015 Mazda 5 with Factory Roof Rack
  • I am fairly certain your crossbar spread (distance between them on center) for the rack on your 2015 Mazda 5 is 32 inches which would mean the Sportrack part # SR7018 would not fit since it only fits crossbars spreads of 25-7/8", 27-7/8", and 29-7/8" We do know that the Thule Pulse part # TH614 will fit your vehicle as we had the chance to fit the box to a similar 5 as yours.

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for a 2006 Saturn Vue with Factory Side Rails that Run Front to Back
  • In order to use the SportRack Vista XL Cargo Box - Roof Mount - 18 Cubic Feet, # SR7018, or any cargo box or cargo bag, you will need to at least have cross bars that run side to side on your Saturn Vue. If you can provide me with the year Saturn Vue you have, I will be able to find a roof rack that will allow you to use a cargo box.

  • Will SportRack Vista XL Cargo Box # SR7018 Fit Factory Crossbars on a 2013 Ford Escape
  • The SportRack Vista XL Cargo Box # SR7018 will fit a broad range of aftermarket and factory crossbars up to 4-inches in width, including many elliptical and aerodynamic shapes. If your Ford Escape factory crossbars are 4-inches wide or less, and if the centers of the crossbars are positioned between 23-5/8- and 34-inches apart, then this cargo box will fit your factory rack. This carrier offers a 100-lb weight capacity, but it is suggested that you check your owners manual (or with your...

  • Can a Cargo Box and Kayak be Carried on a 2005 Subaru Outback at the Same Time
  • In order to put a Cargo Box, like # SR7018A26395, and a kayak on your roof, you will first need to measure the crossbar width on your 2005 Subaru Outback. The cargo box is 38 inches wide. You will also need to measure the height of the kayak (because it will need to be carried on its side when on the roof). Add the width of the box and the width of the kayak when on its side. If the sum is less than the usable with of your crossbars then there is a good chance you will be able to carry...

  • Roof Top Cargo Carrier Recommendations for a 2012 Honda CR-V
  • The SportRack Aero XL Cargo Box, # A90275, requires a minimum crossbar spread of 24 inches and will fit on crossbars with a diameter up to 4 inches. From the research I have done, it looks like your 2012 Honda CR-V uses fixed points for its roof rack system. You will want to measure from the middle of your front crossbar to the middle of the rear crossbar to determine your crossbar spread. If that measurement is between 24 inches and 34 inches, then the Aero XL cargo box will fit. If...

  • Can a Roof Mounted Cargo Box be Used on a MINI cooper without Hatchback Interference
  • Either the SportRack Vista XL Cargo Box, item # SR7018, or the Yakima RocketBox Pro 14, item # Y07192, will install on the factory rack of your Mini Cooper. There are several things to keep in mind when installing a cargo box on this vehicle. First, any load/mount extending beyond the rear hatch seam may cause interference. You will need to move the front crossbar as far forward as it will go, measure the distance from the center of your front crossbar to the hatch seam of your vehicle....

  • Comparing the SportRack Vista XL Cargo Box with Thule and Yakima Cargo Boxes, 2009 Subaru Forester
  • Basically, it depends on what features you want in a cargo box. The SportRack Vista XL, # SR7018, is going to give you all of the basic features of a cargo box. The main difference is going to be the mounting hardware. The Vista XL uses u-bolts, which you can see in the last picture on the product page. The u-bolts are going to be a secure connection, but they take a lot longer to attach to the crossbars on the vehicle roof. Yakima and Thule boxes have a clamping type of mechanism that...

  • How to Determine if Roof Cargo Box Will Fit on Chevrolet Equinox LTZ with Navigation Antenna
  • To fit a roof cargo box to your Chevrolet Equinox LTZ with a navigation antenna you will need to do some measuring. The navigation antenna is located on the rear of the vehicle, so you will want to measure for rear clearance of the cargo box. The SportRack Vista XL Roof Cargo Box, part # SR7018, requires a crossbar spread of 25-7/8, 27-7/8 or 29-7/8 inches to fit on your vehicles roof. If you move your front crossbar as far forward as possible and move the rear crossbar back 25-7/8 inches...

  • Will the Thule Adventurer Cargo Box Fit on Thule AeroBlade Crossbars on a 2004 Volvo V70
  • The Thule Adventurer cargo box will fit on the Thule WingBar crossbars. The mounting hardware that came with the Adventurer cargo box had 3 holes, you will want to use the outer holes with the WingBar crossbars (see photo). If you need replacement mounting hardware for your Adventurer cargo box, you can use the Quick Mount QM3 Mounting Hardware, # TH04997. It does make sense that if you're going to put crossbars on your 2004 Volvo V70 that you go with a new kit that's going to last...

  • Availability of Roof Crossbars for a 2007 Saturn Outlook with Factory Roof Rack
  • The Sears Sport X-20 roof cargo carrier is made by Thule. I spoke with my contact at Thule and she said the Sears cargo carrier will not fit on the 2007 Saturn Outlook factory crossbars. They do not offer any crossbars that will attach to the factory roof rack. To use the factory crossbars on your vehicle, she said you would have to use a Thule roof cargo box. I am sending a link to a page of Thule cargo boxes that will fit on your 2007 Saturn Outlook factory crossbars. I also carry...

  • Comparing the Yakima RocketBox Pro 14 Cargo Box with a SportRack Vista XL Cargo Box
  • To me the Yakima RocketBox Pro 14, # Y07192, is not only one of Yakimas best boxes, but one of the best boxes that we carry. The reason is because of its shape and features. The box measures 74 inches long by 33 inches wide and despite its size it still has 14 cubic feet of storage space. The RocketBox also features a simple and easy to use mounting system that clamps around the crossbars rather than using u-bolts to mount them like the Vista XL box. I have included links to the installation...

  • Crossbar Spread Requirements to Mount the SportRack Vista XL Cargo Box
  • I spoke with my contact at SportRack about the Vista XL Cargo Box, # SR7018. He stated that the box will mount to crossbars that are 25-7/8", 27-7/8", or 29-7/8" apart on center. Always be sure to check your vehicle owners manual to determine the weight carrying capacity of your roof.

  • Replacement Key 2856 for Sportrack Vista XL Rooftop Cargo Box SR7018
  • You can use Thule/SportRack Replacement Key # THKEYN2856 with your SportRack Vista XL Cargo Box # SR7018 that has a lock cylinder with number 2856. This replacement key is sold individually so you might want to get a couple to have an extra spare around. For reference I have linked you to our main page for SportRack parts.

  • Will the SportRack Vista XL Cargo Box Fit the Thule AeroBlade Load Bars
  • The new Thule AeroBlades are less then 4 inches in diameter so the mounting hardware on the SportRack Vista XL cargo box, # SR7018, will fit them. The center to center distance between the bars will have to be 25-7/8", 27-7/8", or 29-7/8". I have included a link to a video featuring the cargo box for you.

  • Can Thule EasySnap Mounting Hardware be Used with SportRack Vista XL Cargo Box
  • You will not be able to change out the hardware on the SportRack Vista XL cargo box # SR7018. The EasySnap hardware such as # 05704 uses u-bolts that are narrower than the ones the Vista box uses. To use different hardware you would have to drill new holes in the box which will void its warranty and can compromise the structural integrity of the box. With that said, people have done this with different boxes and hardware so it is not without precedent. You just need to be aware of the...

  • How Long is the SportRack Vista XL Cargo Box # SR7018 Inside
  • I went out to the warehouse and measured the inside of a SportRack Vista XL Cargo Box, item # SR7018, and the longest inside measurement is 60 inches. Your 63 inch skis would fit in the box if you laid them in diagonally but not straight front to back. You may be better off with a longer box. If so, the SportRack Horizon Cargo Box, item # SR7011, has a much longer inside dimension of 82-1/2 inches. Plenty of length for your skis, but not quite an equivelent amount of storage space as...

  • Fit of SportRack Vista XL Roof Mount Cargo Box on 2011 Honda CRV
  • The SportRack Vista XL Roof Mounted Cargo Box attaches to the factory crossbars using the supplied U-bolts. The U-bolts will accommodate cross bars up to 3-3/4 inches in diameter. The factory crossbars will also need to be 25-7/8, 27-7/8, or 29-7/8 inches apart. I would not recommend using any other method of attachment than the U-bolts supplied by the manufacturer. You should also consult your owners manual to determine the weight capacity of the roof rack on your CRV. SportRack also...
