How To Determine If The Thule Compass And The Thule Force XT Fit On The Roof Of My 2020 Forester?


Hi. I have a 2020 Subaru Forester with Thule aero blade edge crossbars. I already have the Thule compass kayak holder and wanted to know if there was a Thule roof box that would fit next to it with one kayak in the rack. If not compatible with the Thule compass, is there a roof box and other kayak holder that would work together? Appreciate the help. You guys rock!

In order to determine if the:

-Thule Force XT Sport Rooftop Cargo Box # TH6356B will work in conjunction with your Thule Compass Kayak and SUP Carrier w/ Tie-Downs # TH890000 you will have measure the available distance you have after your kayaks are loaded on the roof of your 2020 Subaru Forester.

From here, you will be able to determine if you'll be able to use the Thule Force XT or not.

Furthermore, the Thule Force XT measures 24-3/4" wide, and 70-1/2" long, so as long as you have at least 24-3/4" of available space, then this will work great for you.

Finally, I recommend verifying the maximum carrying capacity of your roof/crossbars and ensuring that you're not overloading your maximum carrying capacity.
