- Roof box's – need some info..
Thule aero bars should be able to accommodate pretty much any roofbox, they are a little wider than normal bars but my standard Kamei box fittings work fine with my Thule aero bars.
Look at other makers of boxes than Thule, they attract a silly premium price. After a LOT of research I bought an ex display Kamei delphin roofbox from roofbox.co.uk for a lot less than i would have had to pay for a second hand Thule box. Might be worth your while looking at things other than 2nd hand.
Also worth checking BMW, VW, Ford etc etc as they seem to regularly have sales of their own branded roof boxes at massive reductions, some of these are manufactured by Thule for them.Posted 4 years agodhMember
I got a 2nd hand one from gum tree. Bargain less that half price.
I have the Thule aeros and the box I have fits fine – exodus – think its halfords own brand.
For that sort of stuff I think 2nd hand is worth investigating. Just a big box in the end, not much to go wrong.

Ok…looking for a ( second hand ) roof box for camping trips to free up space in the car.
I’ve already got Thule aero bars so can I pretty much fit any make of roof box to the Thule bars?
Any I should look at / avoid?
Will I need a specific fitting kit depending in the manufacturer?Posted 4 years agoOrange CrushMember
Go for a front hinged box. I got a side hinge version off e-bay but it’s a real pain to fix to the roof bars (I don’t have it on all the time). I have a Berlingo so need to use a stepladder to get up there and it is really too much of a stretch to get across to the hinge side to reach the fixings.Posted 4 years agoDaveyBoyWonderMember
^ If the OP doesn’t drive a van then a side opening one will be fine. Side opening 360L Exodus on my Octy estate with the quick release system. Can get it on and off in under a couple of minutes.
Its also gloss black to go with the black car if you like that sort of thing (I do).Posted 4 years ago
