Cargo Box

I have a Yakima Skybox that fits with out touching the tail gate. I am so glad I don't have to use an aftermarket (Yakima) system (wind noise). First pic is side view. Second pic is tailgate clearance. Third pic is rear view.

what kind of connection does your box have to the crossbars? can you post a picture? I have a Thule box from my last car. havent tried it on the Pilot yet. i wonder what i need to use on the connecting plates to protect my crossbars. it's just a bare metal plates and bolt type attachment. Thanks.

Thanks for posting, I have the same box with the same clip system, I was worried it wouldn't fit on my future Elite.

what type of mount is that? I use the same box but have always attached to my round Yakima bars with mighty mounts. I've always added the oem rails to my 2008 and 2014 pilots then the Yakima clips to the rails with the round bars then mighty mount to the box(s)?

I'm not familiar to the attachment mount you show on your skybox.

My thought is to find one of the mighty mounts that fits or is close enough that some shim around the 2016 Pilot crossbar may help it tighten....although I've been unsuccessful finding the perfect Yakima might mount to date.

I'll add to the cargo box that fit. Here is my Thule Atlantis 1600 XT.

I have an older model Thule Evolution 1600 box that i got new for cheap at a closeout sale. Unfortunately the mounting kit is the bolts and metals plate kind and the crossbars are too far apart. I am going to have to drill an extra set of holes on the box bottom to make it fit.

spikeitaudi - yours is looking sharp with the hitch, splash guards and side rail! very nice.

i'm tempted to get a hitch too, but then i'd have to find something to tow. heh.

Hitch can be used for a rear cargo platform...

I'm surprised the crossbars aren't adjustable.

I use that for a bike rack or trailer and skis wouldn’t fit on a hitch rack.

Thank.. to bad it in the body shop as my wife got run off the road and the entire passenger side is all scraped up. 4 days and we will get it back.

We use the Hitch for our Thule Bike Rack and to pull boats as needed.

Thule Force XL

Hi,

I'm looking to get the 2016 Pilot but I was wondering if my Thule Force XL would fit on it without blocking the tailgate. I have a 2007 Honda Odyssey and it barely touches.

I was hoping that someone could do a quick measurement from their 2016 Pilot front crossbar to the tailgate seam. See attached image. According to Thule documentation if the distance is greater than 53 5/8 inches, there shouldn't be a problem with the tailgate hitting the cargo box.

I appreciate the help. It's one of the deciding factors on whether I would get the 2016 Pilot.

Thanks in advance.
