What Roof Mount Cargo Bags Will Fit a 2014 Acura MDX with Factory Roof Rack


are there any cargo bags that will work with this new system. The cross bars are fixed, the rails are not parallel, and there is nothing to grab or tie onto. Is this Acura box the only option?


Expert Reply:

There are many roof mount cargo bags that you can use with the factory roof rack on your 2014 Acura MDX. I have included a link to the options for you. You will want to measure the space available in between the front and rear crossbars.

Ideally, the bag would rest in between the bars and secure to them at the front and back. The bars will prevent the bag from sliding forward or backward during starts or stops. You will need to make sure the roof and bag are clean before installation to avoid scratching the vehicle.

You could also use protective pad, # RL100650, to protect the roof. I also recommend a wheel step, # HE4040, to make loading and unloading the bag easier. Be sure to consult the vehicle owners manual and/or Acura for the weight capacity of the roof before loading.

If none of the bags fit your needs and a cargo box is a better option for you I will just need to know a few things about the crossbars. I need to know how far apart they are on center and how wide each bar is. Also, if you could tell me how big of a box you are looking for or what you want to carry, that will help too. With that information I can determine which boxes will fit.
