Leave your ladder in the garage where it belongs. The waist-high Thule Transport Cargo Box mounts right to any class II trailer hitch, giving you a strain-free spot to pack your gear. Stinky fishing tackle, muddy hiking boots, and bulky luggage all fit perfectly inside, keeping your cockpit clutter free. Plus, it swings down and out of the way when you need to get into the back of your vehicle.
Durability and safety are built into every Thule Transporter Cargo Box. They're crafted in the USA from all-season ABS for generations of dependable duty, come rain or come shine. Plus, thieves will have a hard time breaking through the sturdy One Key Locking System.
For added safety, the Thule Transport has integrated taillights. They fire up when you hit the brakes, giving ample warning to everyone in your wake. And, the included 4-pin connector makes it easy to run juice into your cargo box. Best of all, Thule covers your Transporter with a Lifetime Warranty.

The Thule Transporter Cargo Box is very sporty. Holds up great. Was delivered earlier than expected and priced just right, just in time for my Christmas trip to Ohio. Thanks

I purchased the Thule Cargo box for my 2008 Tahoe. We travel with kids and a dog, so we need all the room we can get. Ups: Installation was really easy (maybe 35 mins total) and operation is easy as well. Downs: The lid (as opposed to the base) is thin plastic and in my pinion the lock could be more substantial. Recos: Light kit is not designed for a round trailer plug. You have to buy a converter kit (which is cheap)to properly configure.

High quality cargo carrier great if you need to carry a watercraft on your roof rack. Easy to use once you get it assambled. Obviously easier to load than a rooftop carrier, you might like it just for that reason. My Ford Taurus wagon's tailgate opens all the way without tipping the unit forward.

Had checked the Thule website and it says the lift gate will clear the installed box. It does and without using the box tilt feature. Follow the instructions and assembly is easy. For my situation the Box is better than a roof top carrier. No need for a step stool and you do not have to worry about overhead clearence entering your garage.

Excellent idea to be use with or instead of Thule roof containers. Easy access. Takes about an hour to assemble. Seems flimsy, but it is made of durable plastic. Holds 13 cu ft, but load must stick up as there is lots of room in the top. Trailer assembly is very heavy because it is made very strong. This is a good and handy product from a good company.

Having recently traded my Sienna Minivan for an SUV, I lost a ton of storage space along with built in cup holders! With three very active kids, we needed more storage space. The Thule Transporter works great! I wanted something that I could load and not have to deal with a carrier that went on top of the SUV. I liked that it had the tilt feature for accessing my car trunk but actually with my MB450GL, I can open my trunk without tilting the cargo box! The difficult part was the installation!

After looking at various storage options this one seemed the best. The box is secure and provides easy access. I like that it doesn't affect gas mileage and we can still park underground in hotels. To the engineers, added flexibility could be provided to users if the hitch had adjustable height and depth adjustment and the use of a 2" receiver would be preferred. I'll be building a new hitch insert that moves the box about 8 inches closer and about 10 inches higher to make it fit snugger.
