Roof Cargo Box Weight Limit

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I'm considering purchasing a Thule Atlantis 1600 cargo box for the RX but have a simple question. Namely, do I need to purchase the Thule crossbars or can I safely mount the box on the RX crossbars? The box weighs 39lbs with a recommended max. cargo weight of 110 lbs for a grand total of 159 lbs. Looking through the owners manual, I found a max. weight limitation of 165 lbs. for the roof cargo area but it's not clear as to whether that limitation is about the crossbars/sidebars themselves or the entire roof. Any clarification would be appreciated; especially from those of you who have been using one on your RX. The Thule bars aren't cheap so I'd prefer to use the factory crossbars if they're strong enough.
