Cargo Carrier to Hold 84 Inch Long Skis on a 2013 Honda CR-V

Question:

Can you recommend a roof top cargo carrier that will fit a 2013 Honda CRV. The one we have is too long and doesnt allow the hatch to open. We need one that will accommodate 7foot skis. Thanks

In order to determine which cargo boxes will fit your 2013 Honda CR-V and not interfere with the rear hatch you will need to take one measurement. First, if the crossbars on the factory roof rack can be moved, 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 roof and the top of the rear hatch.

This is a critical measurement. It is possible that none of the boxes that will fit without hatch interference will also hold skis that are 84 inches long. Once I know the measurement you come up with I can determine the boxes that will fit and if any of them can hold your 84 inch long skis.

Another option is to use a ski carrier. The Thule SnowPack Extender carrier, # TH7325, is a great option. It holds 6 skis or 4 snowboards, it slides out for easy loading and unloading, and it costs much less than a cargo box. The carrier can also be locked with the included locks and keys. I have linked a video review of this carrier for you.
