Expert Answers about Car Top Cargo

  • Car Top Cargo CTC-18S Mounting Hardware Availability
  • The mounting hardware for the Cargo Box part # CTC-18S that you referenced is available separately as part # CTC-18PARTS. For your old Sears X cargo roof box, I recommend the Replacement Hardware Kit for Sears box or Thule Evolution Cargo Box # TH05820. Since this is designed for your box this would be the better option.

  • Replacement Mounting Hardware for a Sears Sport 20-SV Cargo Box

  • Roof Rack for 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee to Carry a Roof Box
  • If your 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee has bars that run across the roof from side to side then the Car Top roof box, part # CTC-18S, will work for you without any other parts. On the other hand, if the two bars you're referring to run front to back along the sides of the roof then you do not have a complete roof rack yet and need to get some crossbars to carry a roof box. If this is the case then I recommend the Malone AirFlow2, part # MPG215, to complete your roof rack. It's a good easy...

  • Mounting Hardware Kit for Sears X Cargo Roof Mounted Cargo Box
  • I am not aware of any direct fit mounting hardware kits available for the Sears X Cargo Roof Mounted Cargo Boxes due to their age. As you mentioned, you will need to drill holes in order to mount it onto a set of crossbars. The u-bolts kits are universal, not model specific. I recommend the Mounting Hardware for Car Top Cargo Roof Cargo Box part # CTC-18PARTS if you have aero crossbars.

  • Recommended Best-Value Rooftop Cargo Box for 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon

  • Could Car Top Cargo Rooftop Cargo Box # CTC-18S Fit Factory Crossbars of 2016 Ford Escape
  • Without modification the Cargo Box part # CTC-18S is designed to fit crossbars 22 inches apart that are up to 3-3/4 inches in width. You can increase the maximum crossbar spread to up to 31" by drilling additional 5/16" holes in the floor of the box.

  • Will it be Difficult to Load Items into a Roof Mounted Vehicle Cargo Box
  • If you can reach the top of your vehicle easily currently you'd most likely not have a problem loading cargo in the part # CTC-18S. Most likely though sometime like the tire step part # ALL647596 would work well to give you additional height to reach up to the box. Or for a step stool we have the part # CAM43675 that can fold out.

  • Rooftop Cargo Box for a 2017 Hyundai Santa Fe with Glass Roof
  • There is a similar box to the Car Top Cargo 18, part # CTC-18S called the SportRack SkyLine, part # SR7095. This box offers identical storage capacity to the Car Top, and uses a side-loading setup oriented towards the passenger's side. When using these boxes, you'll need a roof rack to mount the box onto. If you don't already have one installed, let me know and I can recommend a good fit for you.

  • Manufacturer and Construction of Car Top Cargo Rooftop Cargo Box # CTC-18S
  • The Car Top Cargo Rooftop Cargo Box # CTC-18S referenced in your question is manufactured by Car Top Cargo. It includes a limited lifetime warranty from the manufacturer. This cargo box is constructed of durable HDPE thermoplastic and is designed to withstand the elements while on the road. With that in mind, there is not a specific foam strip or gasket to prevent water entry. With this or any rooftop cargo box, I recommend storing items inside that will not be damaged if some water...

  • Cost Effective Roof Rack for a 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe
  • The only thing you will need to install the Car Top Cargo Rooftop Cargo Box part # CTC-18S on the roof of your 2016 Hyundai Santa Fe is a roof rack. If you do not already have one, I recommend using the Rola Sport Series Roof Rack part # 59766 if you have factory raised side rails or part # 59779 if you have a bare roof. Both options have aero crossbars which will reduce wind noise and drag in addition to containing keys for security. You may or may not need to drill new holes into the...

  • Is Car Top Cago Rooftop Cargo Box Water Resistant
  • The Car Top Cargo Rooftop Cargo Box # CTC-18S will offer some protection from the elements however it is not sealed tight or water proof. No cargo box is completely water proof. If you're storing anything in it that absolutely cannot get wet, such as electronics of any kind, I would keep them in plastic bags before storing in the box. If you're interesting in locking the box, the Master Lock Covered Solid Body Padlocks # 141T pair well with the cargo box.

  • Will Car Top Cargo Rooftop Cargo Box Fit Factory Crossbars on 2013 Dodge Caravan
  • The Car Top Cargo Rooftop Cargo Box # CTC-18S referenced in your question is designed to fit most factory crossbars. To ensure that this will work with the crossbars on your 2013 Dodge Caravan, I recommend taking a couple of measurements. You will want to measure the height and width of the crossbars themselves, as well as the distance from crossbar to crossbar on the roof (crossbar spread). The Car Top Cargo Box will fit crossbars that are up to 3-3/4 inches wide and 1-3/16 inches...

  • Recommended Roof Top Cargo Box for a 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser
  • When it comes to picking out the best roof cargo carrier for your 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser a lot really depends on what you are looking to use it for and what you are hauling. Typically the higher end cargo boxes are made out of stronger materials which helps them to be a little more sturdy than some of our entry-level options. If your Cruiser just has the side rails that run front to back but no crossbars then you will want to install Thule WingBar Evo Bars # TH711400 for Silver or #...
