Recommended Roof Rack and Cargo Box for 2016 Honda Pilot with a Naked Roof


Im looking for an economical option that could give us a roof rack system to mount a CARGO BOX full of skis etc on upcoming winter trips. My 2016 pilot has a naked roof. No roof rails, no cross bars. I need something universal, easy to install, and that will be compatible with a cargo box. If you also wanted to suggest a cargo box that would hold skis up to 190 cm, that would also be helpful! Looking forward to seeing if you have something for me, as Im ready to purchase now before christmas.

The most cost effective roof rack for your 2016 Honda Pilot is the Rhino-Rack that consists of:

54 Inch Euro Square Crossbars # RRVA137S-2 in silver or # RRVA137B-2 in black
Custom DK Fit Kit # DK444

This rack is designed to fit your SUV with a naked roof. The bars are 54 inches long and can support up to 165 pounds. The rack also includes built-in locks with a universal key. You can upgrade them to metal lock cores using # RRVA-LEC4.

For a cargo box the Thule Pulse Alpine # TH613 will hold up to 11 cubic feet of gear. This breaks down to approximately 4 to 6 pairs of skis that are up to 210 cm long. Take a look at the review video I've linked for you.
