Hey guys. I am in the search for a system that I can put my full size tire, 5-10 gallons of fuel and possible some cargo. I was really into Rhino platform but I think it does not fit Honda passport. I saw a Canadian car review video for 2019 passport that has a basket and they secured a spare on it. Full size tire is my priority. Any of you guys have some pictures or experience to share with me? I really appreciate it.

I have a rack (I forget, Yakima or Thule) to fit my crossbars.
I found that the other of the above 2 (not one I got) has an adapter to hold spare in the rack.
Got one, will need slide mods to make it work with my rack but seems like a decent solution.
Now I need to remember to order that wheel and full sized spare to match what I have!

Thanks, can you place a basket or platform directly on the rails? I don't want it to be tall

There are some baskets that can and I kind of wish I had that. It is a bit tall but not terrible.
I like that it removes quite easily, I don't keep it on all the time.

Check out the Yakima Lock N Load system. I am going to be purchasing this fairly soon, just need to measure the length of the passport roof and deciede if I want to go past the Sunroof or not...

Versatile I'll admit - though pricey - but will it actually reduce height that much? Even if attached directly to roof rails instead of existing crossbars it seems their own (required) towers make it about the same height (at base) as a basket on top of roof rails. No?

Went through their selector and it only recommends one size rack and seems it must be attached to crossbars, can't direct attach to roof - thats a deal killer and not much improvement over my basket. 🤨

You made a good point, didn't think about the sunroof. that could make it tricky.

I looked up rhino rack and they require an additional attachment/cross bars that cost an extra $400. I mean I could probably use the basket and put my tire up there. I also would like to be able to attach and detach the basket only for adventure trips/

Sound like you are looking for more than a suitcase, duffle bag carrier. My choice was the Surco Safari Rack 5.0.



I just double checked the Surco site and the one I posted is the recommended size for the Passport and is what I got. If you are interested here is Surco's site.

Thanks for sharing that. I think I want to go with a platform/basket with smaller squares in the middle. this way I'll have more options for strapping the item. But I will keep this pone in mind.

I’m using the JSport Plateau. Also pricey. But I think you could strap your spare directly to it. Happy to post photos if you need to see something specific.

Carrying a full size spare was one of the considerations. That is why this is so helpful and more secure than straps.

good point! looking into it. thanks!
Don't know if this matters to you or not but another thing I like about it is the fact that it sits on the rails, no cross bars needed. For me that it an advantage as we have very tall garage ceilings. That makes the basket easy to put on and take off. When I don't need it I hung a pulley from the ceiling directly over my parking spot. Good strong rope and a second pulley with 4 equal length ropes. Attach the 4 ropes to the corners, loosen four hex bolts and I can lift it up to the ceiling when driving around town. When I am getting ready to go somewhere that I want the full size spare 5 minutes of time and it is lowered onto the roof of the passport and tightened into place.

While it may sound a bit laborious, that particular rack also fits my wife's Nissan Rogue. She can use it if she needs.

Thank you for sharing ! Sounds really interesting. Maybe a project for me in the future.
