Will Thule Motion XT L Rooftop Cargo Box Fit 2021 Toyota RAV4 With Factory Roof Rack


Im pondering if to buy the Thule Motion XT L for my Rav 4 2021 Limited but it has the factory bars, which although rated for 160 pounds, are slightly curved. Does this box fit on them, or do you recommend exploring other options? Thanks!

Excellent question, and thank you for the photo. Many factory crossbars have a slight curve to them, and that isn't an issue whatsoever for mounting accessories, as it isn't pronounced enough to have an impact on how the clamps attach to the crossbars.

I also verified your RAV4's crossbars have the required size and spacing, which is a long way of saying your 2021 Toyota RAV4 with the factory roof rack is absolutely compatible with the Motion XT large cargo box, which is the following part number:

- Thule Motion XT Rooftop Cargo Box # TH629706

The Motion XT # TH629706 is a superb choice for a cargo box because of its combination of quality, ease of use, and aesthetic. The box opens from both sides for easy access, uses clamps that tighten to your crossbar with the turn of a dial, and comes with locks to secure your gear.

It's durable enough that it comes with a lifetime warranty, making it the last cargo box you'll ever need, and frankly, the Motion XT just looks really, really cool with its aerodynamic shape and gloss finish.
