The Toyota Highlander is a family plus vehicle. Seating up to 8 in comfort, you can take road trips with the whole crew wherever your imagination takes you.
But what about all the gear for those trips? A lot of people means trunk space is at a minimum.
Let’s take a look at the 8 best roof boxes for your Toyota Highlander:
1. Thule Force XT Roof Box
This roof box has 22 cubic feet of space in which you can pack 165 pounds of goodies. It’s aerodynamic, fits well on your Highlander, and can even fit up to an average of 6 pairs of skis.
You’ll enjoy the dual side opening system (you can access it from either side of your car) and the mounting system “clicks” when you’ve mounted the carrier correctly (cool feature!).
2. Goplus Cargo Box
This model is a bit smaller though, with 14 cubic feet of space. Nonetheless, you can still fit a lot of essentials in there. It’s a very sturdy roof box for your Toyota, designed to take on dirt, rocks, and weather equally well.
If you know you’ll be going to hotels, you have the security of a double-lock system for your valuables. Total load capacity: 165 pounds.
You’ll find that installation is a breeze with the Goplus. There are 4 quick-connect anchors for secure mounting. It also opens on both sides, allowing for access from either side of your vehicle.
3. Yakima Sky Box 16
Average Cost: $625 when on sale. If you need more room, step up to the 21 cubic foot model for about $100 more.
4. SportRack Vista XL Rooftop Cargo Box
The SportRack is oriented for rear-opening. This protects you from traffic. It includes a lock, and has a weight capacity of 100 pounds. Price: Just under $400.
5. Inno Wedge
It offers dual sided opening, a weatherproof exterior, and safety locks. Neat feature: A one-touch belt buckle for securing your cargo within. The 9 cubic foot model runs $475.
6. JEGS Rooftop Cargo Carrier
It’s waterproof, has dual side openings, and a four corner locking system.
7. Keeper Premium Waterproof Roof Top Cargo Bag
You will have 15 cubic feet of space inside, protecting bulkier goods from sun, rain, and road grit. You can fold it easily for storage too. All this for about $75.
8. MIDABAO Thickened 20 Cubic Waterproof Duty Car Roof Top Carrier
For 20 cubic feet of protected space, we can’t see any competitors messing with this. It’s not a hard shell box of course, but in the arena of cargo bags this is the king.
As you can see, you have a lot of different options available to you. Just “know” before you go. Figure out how much you will be carrying regularly to get the most use out of your investment.
