Cargo Box And Kayak Carrier Recommendation For 2007 Toyota RAV4?


Hello! I have stock crossbars on my 07 Rav 4. Id ideally like to have the option of carrying both a rooftop cargo box and a kayak, with the ability to carry two kayaks when the box isnt on the Rav 4. Would a combination of the Thule Force Sport and the Thule Hull-A-Port XT/Thule Compass allow this?

You shouldn't have an issue carrying a kayak along with a cargo box on your 2007 Rav4 factory crossbars, but you will want to make sure you have the proper crossbar length and crossbar dimensions.

The Thule Force XT Sport Rooftop Cargo Box - 11 cu ft - Black AeroSkin # TH6356B fits crossbars that are no wider than 3-1/2" and no taller than 1-11/16". The width of this cargo box is 24-3/4". The Thule Hull-A-Port XT (TH848) fits crossbars that are no wider than 3-1/8" and no taller than 1-3/8". The Thule Compass # TH890000 fits crossbars up to 3-1/4" wide and up to 1-1/4" tall. Any of these configurations should work for you but you will still want to verify by measuring your crossbars. I recommend going with the Thule Force XT cargo box and the Thule Compass as this kayak carrier will allow you to easily transport 2 kayaks. I attached a few demonstration videos that you can check out.
