Expert Answers about Roof Box


  • Yakima Roof Cargo Box Recommendation that Can Accomodate 187 cm
  • Yakima has the correct info for the Yaima ShowCase 15. The max ski length would be 180 cm as we transferred that info to our site incorrectly. I sent an update to have this fixed on our site as well. For skis your length you'd need either the Rocketbox 11 part # Y07193 you referenced or the Yakima Showcase 20 part # Y07328 which can carry skis up to 220 cm.

The box is designed to fit aero crossbars like the Rhino Rack and can hold up to 16 cubic feet of cargo space. I attached a review video link to this page for you to check out as well.

  • Thule Cargo Box Fit Recommendation for 2018 Toyota 4Runner
  • For your 2018 Toyota 4Runner with the factory roof rack the only cargo box Thule recommends as a fit is their Sidekick # TH682. The distance between the roof and the bottom of the crossbars on your roof rack is so low that only the U-bolt style of attachment like what the Sidekick has will fit without interference. Yakima also does not recommend any of their boxes as fits either.

  • Will Thule Force Cargo Box Allow Rear Hatch To Open Without Interference
  • Here's how you'll be able to determine if the Thule Force XL Cargo Box part # TH625 will fit the factory crossbars of your 2016 Toyota Highlander and also allow the rear hatch to open. You'll need to measure from the center of the front crossbar back to the hatch seam on your roof. If that measurement is at least 53-5/8 inches the box will allow the hatch top open without interference. The L version of the Force part # TH628 only requires 47-1/2 inches so that would be a great option too...

  • Differences Between Thule Force XL Cargo Box and Thule Force XT XL Cargo Box
  • The Thule Force XL XT part # TH6358B is similar but definitely an upgraded version of the Force XL part # TH625. The XT has the latest version of Thule Quick Grip mounting hardware, has the newer angular look to the box, and has better clearance for allowing the rear hatch of the vehicle to open. The XT requires at least 51-1/8 inches from the center of your front bar back to the hatch seam and the standard Force requires 53-5/8. I attached review videos for both boxes that show the...

  • Will SportRack SkyLine XL Cargo Box Fit 2015 Dodge Grand Caravan With Stow 'N Place Roof Rack
  • There is a way for you to make the SportRack SkyLine XL Cargo Box # SR7095 fit your 2015 Dodge Grand Caravan, but it will only fit roof racks that have a crossbar spread of 21-1/2 inches to 34 inches. That said, if your 2015 Dodge Grand Caravan has the Stow 'N Place roof rack (which is what I believe you are referring to by "retractable" roof rack) you should be able to position them closer than the 44 inches you currently have them at. They should have a few different positions available...

  • Recommended Cargo Box for 2016 Honda Pilot with Overall Height Under 88 Inches
  • The Malone Cargo12 Rooftop Cargo Box - 12 cu ft - High Gloss Gray # MPG901 will sit 17-3/8 inches above the crossbars. The Thule Sidekick # TH682 will be quite a bit smaller with only 8 cubic feet storage, but will also sit only 15-1/2 inches above the crossbars. I looked up your 2016 Honda Pilot and the factory height is 69.8 inches so that gives you minimal clearance. Between the two options, the Thule Sidekick # TH682 is the route to go because the Malone will be too tall. If...

  • How to Use the Thule Motion XT on a 2008 Honda CR-V and a 2012 Honda Accord
  • Yes, the Thule Motion XT Rooftop Cargo Box part # TH6299B will work on both a 2008 Honda CR-V and a 2012 Honda Accord. However, in order to make sure you can open the rear hatch on the CR-V with the Motion XT installed you will need to measure from the front fixed mounting point on the roof to the point where the hatch and roof line meet. As long as you have more than 55" you will be fine. The Thule Motion XT Rooftop Cargo Box part # TH6298B only requires 51-1/4" if that is important to...

  • Yakima Skybox 12 Compatibility with 2007 Toyota Sequoia Factory Roof Rack

The Yakima SkyBox 12 Rooftop Cargo Box - 12 cu ft - Black Carbonite # Y07334 which will fit crossbars that are up to 3-1/2" x 1-11/16" max. The crossbars also need to be spaced between 24 and 42 inches on center, so based on that info it should fit your 2007 factory roof rack without issue. To have full access to your rear hatch, you will need 57 Inches from the center of the front crossbar to the seam...

  • Roof Box for Two Sets of Golf Clubs on 2017 Mazda CX-5.
  • A standard golf bag will measure around 50 inches long, 10 inches wide, and 12 inches deep. If this resembles what you have then a great option is the Thule Pulse Rooftop Cargo Box # TH615. This particular unit features inside (usable) dimensions of 72 inches long, 31 inches wide, and 14-1/2 inches tall. This will provide plenty of room for two standard sized golf bags with some room still for a few extra sleeves of balls (not that you will need them). Its SecureLock design will help...

  • Compatibility of Yakima Skybox 18 on Volvo XC90 with OEM Crossbars
  • I reached out to Yakima and they said that your Yakima SkyBox 18 Rooftop Cargo Box # Y07336 should fit the OEM bars you have on your 2017 Volvo XC90. The clamps should adjust location to fit your bars. The clamps do not need to fully enclose the bar but it does need to clamp and hold tight. They specify the maximum aero bar dimensions it will fit is 3-1/2 inches by 1-11/16 inches and it will fit a crossbar spread between 24 and 42 inches center to center. There is not a conversion to...

  • Will the Malone Cargo12 Rooftop Cargo Box Fit a 2016 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • The correct way to measure the crossbar spacing on a vehicle is from the center of the front crossbar to the center of the rear crossbar. WIth that being said it looks like you measured correctly as the research I was able to gather indicates that you have a 30" crossbar spacing on your 2016 Subaru Outback Wagon. Therefore, the Malone Cargo12 Rooftop Cargo Box part # MPG901 will not work for you. Instead, I recommend using the Malone Cargo16 Rooftop Cargo Box part # MPG902 which will...

  • Yakima SkyBox 16 vs Thule Motion XT L Cargo Boxes for 2016 Audi Q5 and Future SUV
  • Both the Yakima SkyBox 16 # Y07335 and the Thule Motion XT L # TH6297B are excellent options that look great, feature dual side access, and give you 16 cu ft of extra cargo space. I recommend going with the Motion XT L though because it allows you to install it on your 2016 Audi Q5, a 2019 Subaru Forester, or a 2019 Mazda CX-5 no matter what kind of roof options (with side rails or without side rails) you choose. The SkyBox will fit all 3 vehicles and allow you to open up the rear...

  • How to Determine if Car Top Cargo Rooftop Cargo Box # CTC-18S will Fit Vehicle Crossbars
  • Since Car Top Cargo does not fit specific vehicles with their boxes you'll have to check out roof rack to know for sure if the Car Top Cargo Rooftop Cargo Box # CTC-18S will fit. As long as the crossbars are less than 3-3/4" wide x 1-3/16" tall and between 22 and 31 inches apart this box will fit and work well. It's setup to fit 22 inch crossbar spreads and if you need wider than that you'd have to do some drilling.

  • Recommended Roof Rack and Cargo Box for 2016 Honda HR-V with Naked Roof
  • Starting with the roof rack I highly recommend the Rhino-Rack RS 2500 Roof Rack in Black # RRRS692B or Silver # RRRS692. This system is confirmed to fit your 2016 Honda HR-V that features a naked roof and it uses a clamp-style attachment to secure to the vehicle. What I really like about this particular roof rack is its flush design where the crossbars don't actually extend past the feet. This allows for a really sleek, OEM appearance that will look great on your HR-V. The slim, aerodynamic...

  • The Yakima SkyBox 21 Rooftop Cargo Box # Y07337 will clamp around crossbars that are up to 3-1/2 inches wide and 1-11/16 inches tall. The TracRac Van Rack systems we have available for your 2004 Ford Van like the part # TH29056XT feature crossbars that measure 3 inches wide and 1-1/2 inches tall. If this matches what you have on your van then the Yakima SkyBox 21 will attach to the crossbars without any modification or adapters. Please let me know if the crossbars on your Ford Van...

  • Thule Cargo Box Recommendation that Allows Rear Hatch to Open
  • To determine if the Thule Pulse Alpine Roof Cargo Box part # TH613 will allow the rear hatch of your 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon with factory crossbars to open will require you to take one simple measurement. You will need to measure from the center of the front crossbar back to the seam on the hatch. If that distance is greater than 55-1/4 inches this box will allow the rear door to open. We had a customer with a similar 2015 Subaru Outback tell us that the distance they have there was 51...

  • Will the Inno Wedge 665 Rooftop Cargo Box Fit a 2015 Subaru Outback Wagon
  • Yes, the Inno Wedge 665 Rooftop Cargo Box part # INBRM665WH will fit your 2015 Subaru Outback Wagon with the factory roof rack. I called my contact at Inno to confirm this. The cargo box is going to add an additional 14-1/5" from the top of the crossbar. The reason this is less than the overall height of the box (15-3/4") is because the floor is concave so the front and rear points will sit lower than the sides. If the distance from the center of the rear crossbar to the point where...

  • Roof Rack Weight Limit of 2018 Toyota RAV4
  • From my research your 2018 Toyota RAV4 can carry up to 101.9 pounds on the factory roof rack. That may be oddly specific but it's what Toyota states as the maximum. So you need to make sure the roof box you choose and everything in it doesn't exceed 101.9 pounds. A good roof box that you might like is the Thule Force XT Sport, part # TH6356B. It holds up to 11 cubic feet of gear and includes locks. It fits on your RAV4's crossbars with clamps that are super easy to tighten. You...

  • Recommended Aero Roof Rack and Rooftop Cargo Box for 2019 Honda HR-V

Let's start with a roof rack. Since your HR-V has the roof style with the flush-mounted front-to-back rails I recommend the Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero system made of parts # RRVA126B-2 and # RRSX049. I like this rack for your HR-V because it offers the same kind of quiet aerodynamic...

  • Will the Inno Shadow 16 Cargo Box Fit a 2016 Subaru XV Crosstrek
  • The Inno Shadow 16 # INBRA1210BK is compatible with crossbar spreads ranging from 23-1/2" - 39". Since it looks like your 2016 Subaru XV Crosstrek has OEM rails that are spaced 27" apart on center this means the Shadow 16 will fit perfectly on your crossbars. You may also want to measure from the center of your rear crossbar to the line between your roof and hatch to make sure you will have unrestricted access to your rear hatch area. If this measures at least 12" then you are good to...

  • Kit Needed to Swap Lock Cores Out of Thule Force Cargo Box
  • You can use a Thule Re-Keying kit part # TH512 which comes with two new cores, two keys, and a change key. But to remove the old lock core will require you to unlock it first. Once unlocked you can insert the change key and the old core will slide right out. If you don't have a key to unlock what you have you'll need a key for it. To pick out the key you'd then want the part # THKEYNXXX where the X's equal your key number.

I spoke with a representative of Yakima who said the reason the SkyBox (and all other rooftop boxes from Yakima) would not fit was likely because the factory crossbars on your Santa Fe Sport sat low, which would result in the mounting clamps making contact with your Hyundai's roof. There is a great option for...

You'll need to measure from the center of the front crossbar back to the seam of your hatch on the roof of the vehicle.

  • How to Carry Cargo on Crossbars With a 50 Inch Spread
  • There is a way for you to carry cargo on crossbars that have a 50 inch spread but rooftop cargo boxes like the Thule Pulse Alpine # TH613 or Inno Wedge 660 # INBRM660BK cannot be modified to accommodate a spread of that size. The reason for that is they use sliding clamps to adjust to different crossbar spreads so you would not be able to drill holes to allow those clamps to work properly. There are cargo boxes that use U-bolts to attach but none that have the proper length and shape to...

Thule for the most part has all of their cargo boxes fit the same roof rack dimensions and spreads.

  • Trouble Opening Mopar Cargo Box
  • If you are able to unlock the box but not open it then I doubt using the Thule Change Key # 853-1251 to swap out your lock core will help, but it is worth a shot. The replacement lock core # THLOCKN022 fits with the replacement key # THKEYN022 so you can use those if you would like. You may want to try using some WD-40 or PB Blaster to help loosen up any gunk that may be holding the lid down on the box.
