Crossbar Spread Compatibility of Yakima SkyBox 21 Part # Y07337


Im interested in the Yakima Skybox.... I think. I have a 2012 RAV 4 Limited. There was something in your video about 57inch separation of the ? crossbars? My rack and crossbars are all stock but they can never be 57 inches apart What am I doing wrong here? Thanks

The Yakima Skybox 21, part # Y07337 will fit crossbar spreads ranging from 24-42 inches so it should fit just fine on your crossbars. The 57 inch figure you heard was the distance used to determine if the box will prevent a liftgate-type rear door from opening fully. You'd measure from the center of the front crossbar (moved all the way forward, if it's adjustable) back to the seam between the roof and the rear hatch. If this distance is 57 inches or more, the SkyBox 21 won't interfere with the rear hatch opening fully.
