Will SportRack Vista XL Cargo Box # SR7018 Fit Factory Crossbars on a 2013 Ford Escape


Your article on the SR7018 states more or less that it may fit on a 2013 Ford Escape with factory installed roof rack with cross bars??? Should I buy this rack??


Expert Reply:

The SportRack Vista XL Cargo Box # SR7018 will fit a broad range of aftermarket and factory crossbars up to 4-inches in width, including many elliptical and aerodynamic shapes. If your Ford Escape factory crossbars are 4-inches wide or less, and if the centers of the crossbars are positioned between 23-5/8- and 34-inches apart, then this cargo box will fit your factory rack.

This carrier offers a 100-lb weight capacity, but it is suggested that you check your owners manual (or with your local dealership) to confirm the vehicle roof weigh limit. You will want to take into account the weight of the cargo box itself, plus the weight of what you load into it, and compare this to the vehicle limit to ensure you do not exceed its capacity. For example, if your vehicle had a 100-lb roof weight limit, then this 38-lb carrier would allow you to safely carry up to 62-lbs of loaded cargo.

Customers that use rooftop cargo boxes often also choose a tire step to make cargo loading and unloading easier. We offer Topline Accessory Step # TH2100. This lightweight folding step simply slips over a rear tire to give you extra reach when handling your loaded cargo and stores easily inside the vehicle.
