Review of the Thule Roof Basket on a 2013 Ford Edge

Today on our 2013 Ford Edge we're doing a test fit of the Thule Canyon XT Roof Cargo Basket. That part number is TH859XT. Now this is 49 inches long by 40 inches wide by six inches deep and has a 150-pound weight capacity. Now you do want to check your vehicle's owner's manual to make sure it can withstand that much weight. We already have three of our four mounts secured down. We're going to show you how we secure our fourth one back here.

We already have our bracket in place. We had to loosen up our two bolts in here and tighten those back down to adjust it for our crossbar spread. We're going to start by taking our U-bolt, and we're going to place it underneath our crossbar. We've got two washers, one over each of our bolts. Then we have our wingnuts. Now a really great thing about this basket is that it comes with four different ways to mount this.

We have three different U-bolts that are going to accommodate different size crossbars. Then we have the option to do a channel mount as well. We're going to get these wingnuts started on here. Now I mentioned the weight capacity on this carrier. It's going to be great for emptying out space inside your cargo area and allowing you to carry anything from sporting equipment, camping gear and luggage.

It's also going to have many different tie-down points. At the end front it will have a fairing that's going to help to reduce wind noise and drag and give it a more aerodynamic shape. Once our U-bolt is completely tightened down, we're going to take our cover, place it on. We have the option to lock that plastic lock core. You can also pop these out and find metal lock cores available on our site as well to prevent more theft and tampering that way. With that completely tightened up, we're going to open up our back hatch area here.

You'll see we have plenty of room between the basket and the top of our hatch. We're not going to have to worry about that making contact, and we'll still have full access into that back hatch. Now that we have everything secured down, we're ready to load up our gear, tie it down and hit the road. That's going to be our completed look at the Thule Canyon XT Roof Cargo Basket, part number TH859XT on our 2013 Ford Edge.
