Can Yakima FatCat EVO Attach to Thule Roof Cargo Basket TH859XT


Has anyone mounted the Yakima FatCat Evos to this cargo basket? Since the front and rear bars are slightly curved, where as the LoadWarrior basket appear to have straight front and rear cross bars, I wasnt sure if it would work.

To use with the Yakima FatCat EVO Ski and Snowboard Carrier like part # Y03095, the Yakima LoadWarrior Roof Basket # Y07070 is definitely the better option. The crossbars on this basket, as you mentioned, feature a straight design and will work perfectly with this and many other roof rack accessories.

The Thule Roof Cargo Basket # TH859XT that you referenced, because of those curved bars, won't work well with the Yakima FatCat EVO or any other traditional crossbar mounted accessory. This is a really nice basket but it's really only designed to hold cargo inside its raised rails and not really for use with other roof rack accessories.

I have attached a video demonstration on the Yakima LoadWarrior Basket that you can also check out.
