Can the Thule Motion XT XL hold an entire road bike -- with only the wheels detached, but still placed within the cargo box? In other words, I am looking for a Thule cargo box that I can transport a road bike without taking apart the handlebars.

Asked by: Warrenbp
To determine if your bike will fit, compare the size of your bike broken down to the box dimensions of 84" x 36" x 17".

I have a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee with factory side rails. Will the Thule Motion XT XL cargo carrier fit on top of my truck without interfering with the opening of the rear gate/door?

Asked by: jerryt
Measure from the center of your vehicle's front crossbar to the point where the roof meets the hatch. If the measurement that you take is equal to or greater than 51.25 inches, the box will not impact your hatch. If you only have factory siderails, you will also need a base rack system. The link below will assist in picking out the right components.

What are the major differences between this model and Hyper XL? Is lid more durable? More/less aerodynamic for gas mileage? Locking mechanism differences?

Asked by: qball7981
The Hyper XL is more aerodynamic and has a thicker, more durable lid. Both boxes have secure locking systems and both are dual side opening, but the Hyper XL has a few additional features, like an interior light, that make it overall easier to use for most people.
