Here's what others have to say...

What is the "free gift with purchase?"

Responded on

It's an adapter system for the Switchblade crossbar system. Just a small accessory to the box that you won't actually need unless you have Switchblades on your car (a separate product from Thule).

I don't see the weight of the carrier in the technical specs. How heavy is the XXL? I'm thinking here of storage options and ease of taking on and off my vehicle.

Disregard, it looks like Full says 56 pounds for the XXL

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This cargo box is easy to take on and off, it's aerodynamic and simple to use. Opens from both sides and fits tons of stuff in it. I use it for skis plus cargo in the winter and I put pretty much everything in it in the summer.

Great product!

Very spacious and surprisingly quiet. We have used it over 20 times for several days of use. Easily handles 4 snowboards and 4 carry on size suitcases and a couple of backpacks. Sold the snowboard rack and no more stuffing the cargo area! Easy on and off and we keep it in the rafters when not in use. Solid purchase perfect size for our family!

Good looking, Quiet, easy fit

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Purchased this with the intent of carrying camping gear... Used it finally and was very suprised that it hardly affected MPG. I have this mounted to Yakima Whispbar system and it mounts fast and secure.
Con: While loading (stuffing) the box full I did have some difficulty locking it, but if you don't try to overstuff it you will be fine.

Dude! I'm from Fremont originally. Whats up neighbor? Unfortunately I don't have any recommendations for you as to who is going to carry this in your area. If you need that recommendation you might want to hit up Thule directly, they will have a better idea as to who they shipped what too. Otherwise I know we ship to your area, I send gear to my parents all the time.

Force Cargo Box in use!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

So far this season, the cargo box has been perfect. I bought it heading into our family beach vacation. I wanted something to keep the beach toys, sand, chairs, and wet items out of the car (things we wouldn't need to cart into the rental condo, but would use frequently). Suited this task perfectly. Better than the cargo bags because it tolerated the rain that comes with being at the beach. I also really like opening from both sides. I used it again to go camping. Two big pluses: #1, you can get your food and gear up and safe from animals, #2, get things out of the back window for driving. You've got to remember you have something on the roof, but the ability to load, lock, and go while keeping it all dry is great.

If you can't keep this on your car, it's a pain to have to store something this size, but that's not a product problem.

Big fan.

does the 626 Force XXL fit on top of a e-350 van

Depending on what year the van is, the 387 Gutter High Foot Pack paired with 65" load bars should work.
