Best Thule Cargo Box

Im going to give you a quick overview of the best thule roof cargo boxes available in 2016. There are two main ranges available, first one is the thule touring series, there are five boxes in that range and the Thule Motion Series, four boxes in that range.

The touring boxes are the entry level of box. They all have a carrying capacity of 5o kilograms. With the exception of the 600 model, they all open from both sides, the 600 only opens from the offside.

They come in two finishes, Titan Aeroskin, which is a matt silver, dimpled effect or black glossy. The Motion series…they are a more reinforced box and have a carrying capacity of 75 kilograms and are slightly more robust. They come in two finishes, glossy silver or glossy black.

Other boxes from Thule include the Dynamic series. This is a particularly smart and stylish set of boxes. They come in two sizes and two colours. This is the Titan glossy and there is also black glossy.

Thule also do the Ranger series, these boxes are half roof box and half roof bag shall we say? They will fold up for easy storage. We also stock the Karrite range of boxes, Karrite is a Thule company and we have four different boxes in that range.

I’ll go through the range of boxes for you in a moment but I’ll just mention that we usually have the full range of Thule roof boxes on display. If you are thinking of buying one, call into our showroom where you are able to check the suitability of the different boxes with the items that you need to carry.

Amazon.com is a Thule Partner and as such we guarantee that you will not find a genuine Thule product being sold else where, either online or on the high street at a cheaper price.

The Thule Touring boxes come with the Fast Click system for securing to the roof bars. Unlike the Power Click system, the clamps are not permanently fitted in the box. Simply slot in and and are tightened around the roof bar.
You can see that the handle clicks to indicate that sufficient torque has been reached.

The Thule Motion and Thule Dynamic roof boxes have the Power Click system for securing to the roof bars. Simply turn the screw at each corner of the box, it brings the jaws together around the roof bar, and when it’s tight enough it will click so that it cannot be over tightened. This is a Dynamic box and you can see that the base of the Dynamic is covered with a non slip coating.
