Rooftop Cargo Carrier Recommendation for 2020 Toyota Highlander with Panoramic Roof  


Hello I look to purchase a rooftop carrier for a 2020 Toyota Highlander Platinum Trim w/Panoramic Roof Could you recommend a manufacture/brand Specific Carrier designed to use with a for Panoramic Roof? Thank You


Expert Reply:

For a great option for your 2020 Toyota Highlander with panoramic bare roof, I recommend the Thule Force XT XXL # TH6359B. This box has the largest internal dimensions out of all of our cargo boxes. It also comes with a dual-opening lid that can be accessed from either side of your vehicle.

I confirmed that your trunk can fully open with this box mounted on your roof. If you already have crossbars, I recommend measuring your bars to make sure they do not exceed 3-1/2" wide x 1-11/16" tall. The box will work perfectly because the clamps do not require any bottom bolts/nuts that could potentially interfere with your panoramic roof.

If you happen to need a crossbar system for your Highlander, I recommend the following:

- Yakima JetStream Crossbars - 60" # Y00429
- Yakima BaseLine Towers # Y28TR
- BaseClip Fit Kit # Y06153
- BaseClip Fit Kit # Y06132
- Yakima Same-Key Lock Cores # Y07204

This is one of our tallest roof rack systems we have at etrailer. It also comes with an extremely aerodynamic design that decreases wind noise and increases fuel efficiency. In order to determine if you can fully open your panoramic roof, you need to opening your roof and measure the highest point where the cover touches. As long as the highest point is below 3-1/2" tall, there won't be any interference between your roof and the bottom of the JetStream crossbars.
