Width Dimensions of Yakima SkinnyWarrior and Kuat Mini Skinny Roof Cargo Baskets


I have a limited width to mount the basket. There is a refrigerator unit on one side, the other side is open. The available crossbar width 16 inches. What is width of each basket from the outer most point basket tube on the driver side to the crossbar clamp on teh passenger side?

Both of the rooftop cargo baskets you mentioned are going to be well over the 16 inches you need, as you can see by the accompanying photo of the measurements I took.

The Yakima SkinnyWarrior Roof Rack Cargo Basket # Y07014 (58" long) and # Y07014-16 (74" long) is going to be over 18-1/2" from the outside rail to the clamp while the Kuat Mini Skinny Roof Cargo Basket # MSR1B (60" long) and # MSR1B-EXB (74" long) will have a similar measurement.

Since this isn't quite enough room for you the best option is going to be adding a hitch mounted cargo carrier such as the Curt Cargo Carrier # C18113. If you need a hitch I can find the best option if you let me know the year, make and model of your vehicle. I have also added a link to our selection of cargo carriers for you to take a look at.
