How to Determine if Car Will Fit Garage With Thule Vector Alpine Low Profile Cargo Box Mounted


Hi do you have the total height from the ground to top of box on a 2017 Ford Explorer? Am trying to determine if I could drive in my garage with box on. Any insight is appreciated. Thx!

It's pretty easy to determine if a low-profile rooftop cargo box will fit in your garage when mounted on your 2017 Ford Explorer, as all you need to do is take a quick measurement. The lowest-profile available cargo box is from Thule and measures 12-1/2 inches from the top of the crossbar to the top of the cargo box:

- Thule Vector Alpine Rooftop Cargo Box # TH613500

So for the # TH613500, all you need to do is measure the distance from the ground to the top of your crossbars, and add 12-1/2 inches. If that distance is lower than the height of your garage you can safely drive in with the cargo box on.
