Cargo Carriers Questions

  • If you do not know the key number, your best alternative is to have a locksmith open the lock for you. I do not recommend trying to drill the lock out, as it is highly likely that the box would be damaged. Once the lock is unlocked, you can use your control key to remove the lock core. If you no longer have the control key, we offer them as part # Y8007835. The key number will be engraved on the side of the lock cylinder. Once the key number is known, you can order a replacement...

  • The only motorcycle carrier we offer that is approved for use on the rear of a motorhome is the Ultra-Fab # UF48-979033. The carrier itself has a 500 lb capacity, so it will easily handle the weight of your scooter, but you will be limited by the capacity of the receiver its used in. You will need to ensure that the receiver on your motorhome and SUV can handle the weight of the scooter plus the approximate 50 lb weight of the carrier.

  • All rooftop cargo boxes will generate wind noise and to some degree all will negatively affect mileage but those with the more aerodynamic low-profile shape, such as Thule's Hyper XL # TH612, will tend to be quieter and will have slightly less effect on fuel economy. At 90-inches external length this is the longest box Thule recommends for your Outback. It can handle skis up to 201-cm in length so it may be more than you need. It also weighs 53-lbs empty so keep in mind that what...

  • The hitch mounted cargo carrier that is selected most by our customers that have a 2012 Ford Edge, is the Pro Series 24 x 60 Railed Cargo Carrier, # 63153. This carrier is not a folding style carrier like the one you referenced though, but does have a larger platform and cutouts to insert taillights, like part # 98174LED, if the cargo you will be carrying might cover the vehicle taillights. If you like the folding option, the Curt Cargo Carrier, # C18151, that you referenced...

  • There are some large rooftop cargo baskets that can mount to your roof side rails without the need for crossbars. Surco offers their 60 x 50 x 5 inch # SPS5060-1101, which weighs 34 lbs, and the 50 x 45 x 5 inch version # SPS4550-1101, which weighs 32 lbs. I have included a link to our department page for all of our cargo baskets where you can see offerings from ten different brands. Most other roof baskets require crossbars for their installation. Since you plan to transport...

  • The lowest-rated component in a system determines the overall capacity. The 1-1/4- and 2-inch hitches we offer for the Toyota Sienna have a maximum rated tongue weight capacity of 350 lbs. This is true for all model years from 2010 through 2013 (I checked several since I do not know your specific year). I have provided a link to our page for all Class III 2-inch hitches for the 2013 Sienna to illustrate some examples. I have also linked an article on hitch classes and capacities. The...

  • When installing the Yakima Boa Roof Mount Bike Rack, # Y02065, the tube sleeve is used between the front plastic fork mount and around the bar that the mount connects. Due to the size of the Yakima LoadWarrior's, # Y07070, crossbar the sleeve is needed to ensure the mount will remain tight after installation.

  • I have a solution for you, but I reached out to my contact at Thule and they reported that the side to side distance of the Horizon Cargo Box Large, part # SR7016 is about 32 inches, so it won't fit your crossbars. The smaller Horizon Medium, part # SR7011 would be a better fit for your vehicle with a side-to-side distance of only 21 inches.

  • If weight carrying capacity is an issue, going with the Rola enclosed cargo carrier, # 59110, if you have a 2 inch receiver, would be the way to go. If you have a 1-1/4 inch Class II trailer hitch receiver, then the correct Rola carrier is # 59108 and it also has a capacity of 150 pounds like the Thule model, # TH665C. If you are choosing between the two models for a 1-1/4 inch hitch, then I would go with the Rola carrier, # 59108, because even though they have the same capacity,...

  • You are correct about the change key. The lock has to be unlocked for the change key to be able to remove the lock core. The issue is on the new cargo boxes like # TH624 you have to first use the key it came with and have sort of in between the locked and unlocked positions (my contact at Thule stated between 1 and 7) and the key should come out allowing you to use the change key to replace the lock cylinder with the new ones you have.

  • I pulled some Thule AeroBlade crossbars, part # THARB53 along with the mounting hardware for a Yakima Skybox Pro, part # Y90135 to do a test fit for you. I have included a short video that shows how the Skybox should fit with the crossbars. As you can see in the video, there is a small amount of gap but since the Skybox hardware is adjustable, it can be tightened to hold securely to the crossbars you have on your Forester. The Thule Snowboard Rack part # TH575 needs 4-1/2...

  • A good first step in considering your best option in a ramped cargo carrier is a check of your hitch's tongue weight rating, which should be indicated on its safety/warning sticker. This is the maximum weight the hitch can support and the combined weight of the cargo carrier you choose, plus what you load on it, must be within the hitch limit. If your cargo loads will get close to the hitch's limit then a lighter weight aluminum carrier may indeed be a good choice. Here are the...

  • With the 24x60 Railed Cargo Carrier, # 63153, installed in the trailer hitch, you will not be able to install anything else in the hitch and nothing can be installed in the tubing in the cargo carrier. What you could do is use the Curt Dual 2 Inch Receiver Tube Adapter, # D-192. However, the bikes will be hanging above the cargo carrier, limiting the amount of space on the carrier. Also this adapter/extension has a tongue weight rating of 350 pounds. This means that the cargo...

  • The Yakima RocketBox Pro like part # Y07192, is a 14 cubic ft cargo box that measures 74 x 33 x 16 inches. The Yakima Skybox, part # Y07335 measures 81 x 36 x 15 inches and has 16 cubic feet of cargo space. The Skybox has 3 ribs in the lid, making it much stiffer than other roof boxes. It also has a locking handle versus the push button on the RocketBox. They both have dual-side opening and have similar mounting hardware. To find if you have the clearance needed to fit...

  • If you would like a motorcycle carrier that will work on a motorhome, I recommend looking at the Ultra-Fab Motorcycle Carrier, # UF48-979033. We were informed by Ultra-Fab that it is okay to use this carrier on a motorhome or trailer. For a hitch to mount to your 4 inch bumper (assuming it is rated for the weight of your scooter and carrier), you would want the part # E-100. Curt requires the use of their stabilizer strap part # 18050 when using their hitch to carry a...

  • You are correct there is a weight advantage for aluminum, item # C18100, over steel, item # CC-100, but the biggest reason aluminum is considered over steel, for most of our customers, is corrosion resistance and appearance. You do not need to upkeep the carrier with spray paint every couple of years with aluminum like you do steel. As far as disadvantages, there really are none. As long as the weight capacity of the aluminum carrier is rated the same as the steel carrier they...

  • The Thule Pulse Alpine cargo box # TH613 is the new economy, entry-level box. It opens on one side only, is constructed of durable ABS plastic, and has easy-grip mounting feet that mount in about 5 minutes. The Force Alpine, # TH623, is a step up from the Pulse. It features a diamond textured aeroskin for added durability. It is more sleek and aerodynamic. This box uses tool-free quick-grip mounting feet. The lid opens on either side. The Pulse is 11 cubic feet and 88-1/2 inches...

  • Basically, in any state in the union, if the rear license plate or lights are obscured in any way, a police officer can pull you over, regardless of the specific verbiage of the laws. Beyond that it is just a good idea to add lights for safey. For the Rola cargo carrier # 59502 you can use light kit # 20174. In order to use the lights your vehicle will need to have a 4-Way trailer connector. If your 2012 Toyota Highlander does not have a trailer connector you can use # 118449....

  • There are several Thule cargo boxes in the current line up. But to determine if any will fit without interfering with the rear hatch on your 2014 Acura MDX you will need to take one measurement. First, if the crossbars on the roof can be adjusted, move the front bar as far forward as it will go. Then measure from the center of the front bar straight back to the seam between the top of the hatch and the roof. Then take a look at the picture I have included. It is a chart that...

  • If the 2 inch hitch on your vehicle is rated for at least 400 pounds tongue weight capacity, I would recommend using the Pro Series Steel Solo Cargo Carrier and Folding Ramp, # PS10401-10402. This carrier features a ramp for loading things like a snow-blower or lawnmower, see video link, and can easily be used to haul your camping gear when needed. The Pro Series Hitch Cargo Carrier, # 63153, would also be a good choice, but would be much harder to load a snow-blower or lawnmower...
