Will Thule Roof Cargo Carrier, # TH859XT, Fit On 2007 Dodge Nitro


Will this product fit on a 2007 Dodge Nitro without having to drill holes in the roof? Thanks,


Expert Reply:

If your 2007 Dodge Nitro has a factory roof rack with crossbars are spread out between 20 inches and 37 inches when measured center to center then the Thule Canyon Roof basket # TH859XT would fit. The cargo carrier is made to attach to the crossbars of a roof rack, not to be attached directly to the roof.

Anytime you are going to be carrying cargo on the roof you will want to check your owners manual or the car dealer for the load limit of the roof on your 2007 Dodge Nitro. You will want to make sure that with the weight of the cargo carrier and its contents, it does not exceed the roofs load limit.

The Thule Canyon Roof Cargo Carrier, # TH859XT, will mount to round, square and most factory OEM crossbars with the included mounting hardware. It weighs29 lbs. and has a weight capacity of 150 lbs.

If you do not have a roof rack on your 2007 Dodge Nitro then you would need the Rhino-Rack RVP Roof Rack for Fixed Mounting Points - Vortex Aero Crossbars - Aluminum - Qty 2, Item # RRRVP55. Then you could use the Thule # TH859XT on this rack.

If you have a 2 inch trailer hitch on your vehicle, another option to carry cargo would be to use a hitch cargo carrier like the Tow Ready Hitch Cargo Carrier, # 63153, which would insert in your trailer hitch receiver.

I am sending links to the installation instructions and a review on the cargo carrier.
