Malone Rooftop Cargo Box MPG910 Fit for 2012 Volkswagen Touareg with Whispbar Roof Rack


I have very low aero profile Whispbar cross bars installed on my 2012 Touareg. What is the minimum distance between the roof and the crossbars for the locking mechanism to fit? I have only 1-1/2-inches between the bar and roof.

I checked with my contact at Malone for confirmation of compatibility of their rooftop cargo box # MPG910 on your VW Touareg that has a Whispbar aero-style roof rack. My contact said that even with only 1-1/2-inches of space between your bars and the roof the mounting hardware for the Malone box should have enough space to install properly.

A handy accessory for rooftop cargo is the Telesteps Step # TE97FR. Inexpensive, lightweight and fully-assembled, this folding step makes it easy to instantly improve your reach for easier loading and unloading of your cargo.
