First time poster with real-life experience with roof mounted Thule ski/cargo box on an MDX factory rack.

I had concerns since the MDX crossbars don't adjust, but the standard holes and mounting hardware worked fine. Drove from Upstate NY to DC and back with no issues.

The only problem is the rear hatch cannot go all the way up!:mad: ...and you can't see out your sunroof!

Here are a few pics...

Thanks for the information. Greatly appreciated. I've been looking into getting a carrier myself, and this makes me feel better about using one. Thanks again.

Kcarr,

Nice pics. What Thule model did you get? The Evolution 1600, 1800?? With the mounts how much did you end up spending??
I have a dealer close by and quoted me $399.00 with mounts - sounds right??
I know that Yakima/Packsport has a good one too, plus based on the other discussions on cargo boxes, why did you go with this one??

PolyTat,

The Thule model was the Adventurer and it was one I owned from a previous vehicle, so I was thrilled when it fit without much effort! I remember paying about $300 a few years back.

Thanks...KC
