Does anyone know if you can fit the cargo box on the top without having the rear door collide with the box when it is opening?
I have the Thule Force XL cargo box and it fits on the roof without touching the hatch. It's very close and each time I install it, I have to double and triple check to make sure it isn't going to collide once the hatch opens.
I have to have the extra space of the XL, otherwise I would have opted for a slightly smaller box. The front cross bars only go so far forward and so the adjustment on the cargo box is all the way toward the back. What this does is create more overhang in the front then I would like. However, it is within the design of the box and I recently went on a 9 hour trip (one way) to upstate NY from DC through high winds and high speeds (80+), and it held up just fine.
