It maximizes your vehicle's cargo carrying capacity and keeps dirty and damp gear outside of the vehicle. A built-in fairing reduces drag and wind noise, and the mounting hardware is adjustable to accommodate different crossbar spreads. The included 20" extension piece allows you to adjust the basket length as needed.

Aerodynamic, Low-Profile Design

Thule Canyon with Extension and Fairing

The low-profile Canyon XT is wedge-shaped and aerodynamic. A wind fairing attaches to the front of the basket to help redirect air up and over the basket. This helps to reduce drag and wind noise. And the side walls are tapered for easy loading.

Easy Installation

Installed Thule Canyon with Extension

The basket has universal mounting hardware that fits most crossbar styles, and the hardware adjusts to accommodate most crossbar spreads.

Adjustable Mounting Hardware

You can position the hardware anywhere along the bottom of the basket to match your crossbar spread. The hardware easily clamps to basket's bottom rails.

U-Bolts & Hand KnobsInstalled U-Bolts

To install the basket, simply align the included U-bolts under your crossbars and use the hand knobs to tighten them to the mounting hardware. The system includes 3 sets of U-bolts to accommodate most crossbar sizes.

You can also mount the basket directly into your crossbar's top channels using the included T-bolts. Just slide the T-bolts into the crossbar top channels and use the hand knobs to tighten them to the mounting hardware.

Removable Extension

Thule Canyon Basket with Extension

This basket comes with an extension that allows you to customize the length of the basket depending on your needs.

Thule Canyon Basket with Extension

You can bolt all 3 pieces together to create a long basket to carry kayak paddles and other long cargo. To install the extension, loosen the bolts on the bottom of the basket with the included Allen wrench and remove the front of the basket. Slide the ends of the extension into the bars of the basket and re-secure the front of the basket to the extension.

Thule Canyon Basket without Extension

Or simply bolt the front and rear pieces together leaving out the 20" extension to create a standard size basket for bags, camping gear, and other compact cargo.

I’ve got several 1400+ mile trips with this on both a 2017 4Runner and a 2023 Kia Sportage. The basket is well made, easy to install, very solid and so far rust free.


Fit my OEM Hyundai Palisade crossbars p erfectly.


As advertised, fast shipping, easy to install, quality product.


All items were delivered quickly and as ordered. I would definitely order from etrailer again.


Use this for camping and going to the beach. Works perfectly and holds a lot more than the fancy luggage carriers and costs a lot less. Just buy a waterproof zip up cargo carrier to put everything in and strap it down.


This was so easy to put together. It fits great on my 2014 Subaru Crosstrek. I plan on loading all the camping gear in it when we go on vacation. The folks at have been great inn keeping me up to date on the status of my order.


Love this basket. Sturdy, easy to install, super functional. Would never have another car without it.


Excellente product, utilized to travel on a Chevy Taho. Great capacity, easy to assemble and installation. Practical no noise during travel.


Easily assembled in about 20 minutes. Sturdy construction and should last a lifetime. Lillian W. was very helpful and courteous through the process.


Excellent quality and looks great!


Takes a little time to assemble and install but the end product is worth it. Now i am worthy to go camping and carry all my stuff with me!


Product arrived super quick and was very easy to install.





I love this basket! Once I centered on cross braces, it was easy to leave the connectors in same spot. Also, low enough profile to drive in and out my garage. We have a screen door so that made it a shorter height than traditional garage door.


Fast Shipping & great communication with updated tracking details.
Haven't used the hardware yet but looks like it shouldn't be a problem. Have to buy a couple more items for it to work but that's my fault.


We were very happy with our Thule roof rack. The low profile design works well and does not have too much wind noise compared to others I’ve had. It’s held up very well also through the seasons.


Ordered the Thule Canyon XT Roof Cargo Basket from etrailer. It came within days of oredering and is as advertised. Ordering from etrailer was an excellent experience. They followed kept me informed of the status as we went along and sent me warranty information after receipt George and Carol were great to work with. PS - the installation was a breeze and we used it to haul roof top items on our camping trip last weekend. Thank You - I will certainly not hesitate to order from etrailer again!!


Love my new Thule canyon xt roof cargo basket!! Fits on my 2022 Toyota Prius Nightshade, it was easy to assemble!! Shipping was awesome came in quicker then I expected!!


Great product and absolutely awesome service. I originally order the Thule Canyon XT basket from a VERY well know online entity. I wasn't able to get a ship date (they said a would be notified via email when a firm date had been established. After two days of waiting for the message, I cancelled the order and checked They had the same Thule basket at the same price, so I ordered it. It wasn't 10 minutes later that I received an email thanking me for the order and further stating that the product had shipped!!!!!! A UPS tracking number came early the next day!!!! Great product, great price and great service!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks - etrailer..........


Received and installed just in time for a family trip to a cabin. This rack was perfect for storing coolers and bags to free up space in the back of the car. The only difficult step in the installation was getting it as close to centered as possible on the roof rails.


Great OEM fit and great look. Price was a little on the expensive side but it was easier and quicker to go through etrailer than retailer.


Very happy with product and time frame of delivery and the tracking info is always a great asset. Easy to assemble. My only problem was i needed help getting in on the roof of the truck. Also liked the how to and information about the product videos . Thank you . Next item is the cargo bag. :)


Just finished installing my roof basket this morning. No problems doing it by myself. Good, solid product!

Thanks to the team at etrailer for exceptional service, and especially to Michael B. for his help with changing my shipment from my home address to my work address!

  • Can You Attach Mounting Brackets to Extension of Thule Canyon XT Roof Cargo Basket
    Good question, but the mounting brackets must attach to the front and rear section - and not the extension - of the Thule Canyon XT Roof Cargo Basket # TH859XT-8591XT. I verified this with Thule, and the reason is this allows for the most secure attachment to your vehicle's crossbars, with the most balanced distribution of the basket's weight.

  • Roof Rack Recommendation to Fit Thule Roof Basket on 2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser
    Thanks for the picture of your 2008 Toyota FJ Cruiser! From that I can tell you have raised factory roof rails, to install the # TH859XT-8591XT you'll need a set of crossbars that run from left to right like the Rhino Rack Aero Bar kit part # RRVA118B-2 and # RRSX008. This is a high quality roof rack that has aero shaped bars.

  • Comparing the Longer and Shorter Thule Roof Cargo Baskets for a 2007 Toyota 4Runner
    I am happy to help you in determining which Thule roof cargo basket is best for your lifestyle and your 2007 Toyota 4Runner! The most important questions when comparing these 2 options is how much space do you plan on needing and will the larger basket stick out in front or behind your 4Runner? The smaller basket, part # TH859XT, measures 49" x 40" x 6" while the larger basket, part # 59504-EXT, has the same width and depth measurements and is just 20 inches longer at 69" long. The other...

  • Adjusting Crossbar Spread of Thule AeroBlade Roof Rack for Canyon Basket on 2018 Volvo XC90
    I spoke with my contact at Thule regarding the Thule AeroBlade Edge Roof Rack # TH7503-TH7503 that you have installed on your 2018 Volvo XC90. He stated that while the instructions do call for a crossbar spread of 24 to 32 inches on your vehicle, it is acceptable to move to a larger spread of up to 36 inches when mounting your Thule Canyon XT # TH859XT-8591XT with the extension attached. This may allow for a bit of a better fit with the larger basket but the spread you currently have...

  • How Much Does the Curt Roof Mounted Cargo Basket Part # C18115 Weigh
    The Curt Roof Mounted Cargo Basket part # C18115 weighs approximately 29 lbs. It is 41-1/2" long x 37" wide x 4" deep and has a weight capacity of 150 lbs though you will want to consult your owner's manual for the vehicle's roof weight capacity as the lower of the two will be your limiting factor. Please also keep in mind that the crossbars on your vehicle will need to be spaced 15", 22", or 29" apart on center in order for the cargo basket to work. If you need a cargo net for this basket...

  • Could Thule Cargo Basket # TH859XT-8591XT Fit Factory Bars of 2020 Toyota RAV4 TRD
    The Thule Cargo Carrier part # TH859XT-8591XT that you referenced should fit without problem to your 2020 Toyota RAV4 factory crossbars that are spaced between 20" - 57" apart on center. I don't foresee a problem at all but if you wanted to measure your roof rack to verify for sure that would be a great idea.

  • Can I Use the Gladiator Utility Cargo Nets for My Thule Canyon XT Cargo Basket?
    Yes! You can definitely use the Gladiator Utility Cargo Nets for your Thule Canyon XT baskets whether you have the # TH859XT or the larger # TH859XT-8591XT. For proper sizing, I reached out to my tech at Gladiator, and he said that if you plan on not using a lot of cargo with the smaller # TH859XT, the correct net size you need is the # GC77FR. Although, for the larger # TH859XT-8591XT or if you are planning to carry tall cargo on the # TH859XT, I recommend going with the larger 4' 9"...

  • Does 2016 Toyota 4Runner Need Roof Rack to Install Thule Cargo Basket # TH859XT-8591XT
    The Thule cargo basket part # TH859XT-8591XT needs to have a set of crossbars that run from left to right on the roof of the vehicle for it to install on. So for your 2016 Toyota 4Runner we have the Inno roof rack part # INB127 and # INFR which is a confirmed fit and would work well for the vehicle and cargo basket.

  • Roof Mount Cargo Basket that Can Hold 2 Curt Cargo Bags # C18220
    Two of the Curt Cargo Bag for Roof Basket - Waterproof - 13.5 Cu Ft Item # C18220 would be 76 inches long which is longer than the interior of the Cayon XT with extension # TH859XT-8591XT so you would not be able to get the full use of at least one of the bags since it would have to be scrunched up to fit. Two of the bags would fit much better in the Yakima MegaWarrior Extra Large Roof Rack Cargo Basket and Extension Item # Y07080-82 which is 78 inches long. The width will not be a problem....

  • Will the Yakima SkinnyWarrior Work With the TruXedo Elevate Truck Bed Rack
    Mike, the Yakima SkinnyWarrior Roof Rack Cargo Basket # Y07014 you're looking at is not going to work with your TruXedo Elevate Rack # TX76NV because this cargo basket is only going to work with crossbar spreads of 24-38" which would be less than the 4' spread you have. Instead, you'd need to use a larger cargo basket like the Thule Canyon XT Roof Cargo Basket # TH859XT-8591XT which will work since it has a larger crossbar spread range.

This roof rack system can support up to 165 lbs and installs easily into the pre-installed tracks on your Leer cap.

Curt did not test fit this basket on your rack. For a basket that was test fit and confirmed as a fit we have the Thule Canyon XT part # TH859XT-8591XT which would work well.

  • Malone Roof Rack Recommendation for 2016 Nissan Pathfinder for Thule Cargo Basket
    Aero shaped crossbars are definitely quieter than square bars so if you are wanting a quieter ride quality the aero shaped Malone roof rack part # MPG216 which is a confirmed fit for the raised roof rails of your 2016 Nissan Pathfinder would be the way to go over the # MPG202. With this rack installed you could then use the Thule cargo basket part # TH859XT-8591XT that you mentioned.

The rails are awesome for maximizing what your truck can do! You can either go for a ladder rack set up to get the kayaks a little higher than your cab so you're not hanging off of the back of your F-150 or you can get a shorter type of rack like # Y01152-5755. This wont allow you to get your kayaks over your cab, but will still leave room for...

  • Thule Canyon XT with extension on 2017 Honda CR-V
    The Thule Canyon XT with extension, part # TH859XT-8591XT can fit the 2017 Honda CR-V's OEM kit, but you'll have to do a few things to make it work. The roof basket will extend over the top of the sun roof, making it mostly unusable while the basket is installed on the roof. Second, you'll need to move the bars forward if able to better support the weight of the basket.

    Thule does not offer any kayak carrier accessory that can be fitted to their Canyon rooftop cargo basket # TH859XT. I called my most well-seasoned Thule contact and she confirmed no such product is on the drawing board for the future. In truth, even if such an item was available, it might not be your best option. Since kayak weights vary from the low 30s for smaller sit-on types up to the 140s for well-equipped fishing kayaks the vehicle roof capacity can come into play. The Canyon basket...
