Review of a Thule Roof Basket on a 2006 Honda CR-V


Today on our 2006 Honda CRV, we're going to be doing a test fit of the Thule Canyon XT Roof Mounted Cargo Basket. That's part number TH859XT. This basket's going to allow us to get our gear out of our CRV and put it up on our roof. It's perfect for off-roading or camping. It measures 49 inches long by 40 inches wide and it's 6 inches deep. You can even pick up an extension sold separately to add 20 inches.

That's part number TH8591XT. Here up front, it features a fairing, which is going to help cut down on your drag and wind noise. Since the whole basket has a wedge shape to it, it's going to make loading and unloading your gear easy. It's going to work with your round, square, arrow, elliptical, and most factory roof rack systems, just as long as you have a cross bar spread of between 20 and 37 inches. I've already got three of the clamps installed. Let's go ahead and do the last one. It's a good idea to have your plate previously installed.

That way you can measure your cross bars spread out from the floor. Once it's set, you could bring in your clamp. Now the basket's going to come with three styles of clamps for different widths of crossbars. Install the one that works best. We're going to come underneath, put it in position. Be sure to install your washes and lock washers.

Then we'll take our knobs and put those in place. Once we get them both installed, we can tighten them down evenly. With both of those installed, we can then finally take our cover and put that in place. The nice thing about that is it's going to hide our hardware deterring anyone from tampering with it. Each one of our covers does feature a plastic locking core but you can upgrade to the Thule locking cores for all four covers with part number TH544. They will all be keyed alike.

With everything tightened down, it's not going anywhere. We're ready to hit the road. That's going to complete our test fit of the Thule Canyon Roof Mounted Cargo Basket, part number TH859XP on our 2006 Honda CRV.
