Thule Storage Box Compatibility With Rhino Racks Aero Bar Crossbars?


Hi, I'm wondering if the Thule cargo roof storage boxes are compatible with the Rhino Rack Aero crossbars for my 2014 Mazda 5? Thanks!

If you are using the Rhino-Rack Aero Bar Crossbars like # RRVA137B they have a dimension of 54" long x 3-1/8" wide x 1-3/16" tall which works for most Thule boxes that use the PowerClick quick-release clamps like the Thule Vector Alpine Rooftop Cargo Box with LEDs - 13 cu ft - Titan Matte Gray Item # TH613500. These boxes will also work with the Rhino Rack Euro Bar # RREB126B.

The Vector Alpine Rooftop box is literally the NICEST cargo box I have ever had the pleasure of installing. Yes, it is a premium price but it truly is the most premium box you can buy in my opinion. I have only used the Vector Alpine on a couple cars and I had the black version # TH613501. If you really like the idea of the Vector Alpine, get it. You will not be disappointed!

If you aren't really looking for the best box money can buy, here are some other more cost effective options.

Thule Motion XT Rooftop Cargo Box - 16 cu ft - Titan Glossy Item # TH629707 also has the PowerClick Clamps which will fit your roof rack system. If you like the looks of the Thule Motion XT there is a glossy black version available # TH629706. Both have 16 cubic feet of space. If you need more there is a 22 cu ft version available # TH629906 and it that's a little too much there is an 18 cu ft version # TH629806 that's pretty much in the middle of the two. All are going to work with your Rhino-Rack Aero Crossbars on your 2014 Mazda 5!
