Helpful Expert Reply:

The Rhino-Rack 2500 series bars are 3-1/2 inches wide. The Thule Sidekick, # TH78GC, fits on crossbars that are up to 3-3/4 inches wide, so the mounting hardware will fit on the Rhino-Rack bars.

The cargo box requires a bar spread (center to center distance between the bars) of 23-5/8 inches minimum to 28 inches maximum. If you have a 4-door civic then the spread with the Rhino-Rack bars will be 27-1/2 inches and the box will fit fine.

But on a 2-door model the spread will be 23-1/16 inches. That is 9/16 inches off of the minimum so it would not be a fit. In this case I would recommend adding a basket like # 288-09200, and placing a bag in it, like # RL100S50.
