I really like the idea of the Roof Basket Honda showed at initial "Reveal" but as tall as the car is and then to have the basket mounted onto the crossbars, means that only Shaq is going to be able to load/unload that basket without a latter.

Plus the basket is shaped funny and small, there are lots of manufacturers that make bigger and wider baskets. If I had one, I would want it to hold an Easy-Up and no way the Honda one will do that.

Anyone thoughts?

I did get the Honda basket and I’m a Thule fan but I like the smaller size better with the kids stuff and our bike tires so we will be pretty limited on the inside space and it’s generous / I’m height challenge at 5’ 7” so hope there is a ladder for me when I get to the middle of nowhere and when all of this snow melts 😂

Scooter Dude... can you post the approximate dimensions of the Honda roof basket? I'm trying to find them online but cannot. Thanks, appreciate it.

Great idea, I do use a Thule Step Up if needed but usually an open door with running boards works well with boards and skis just no bikes or kayaks as trailer action then for this one ;)

I got two of the step hooks off Amazon and they work great with the Passport. We already have a small step toward the rear of the back door that's perfect for stepping up on the step hook. If you're doing any form of roof storage, I recommend it.

Great reminder / I use a Thule step up and have forever with my height challenged 5 7 lol/it’s good for skis, boards and basic gear / anything heavier is tossed on the Trailer / the days of carrying bikes and kayaks on the top is over for this one 😂

Hey guy finally took some rough measurements in the garage (TMI but into wood working and so can’t wait for it to warm up as I have a few projects lined up 😂) ok back to the roof basket.

40” wide max upper bar
50” long max

These are rough measurements as taken from my floor on the garage but seems plenty big enough for my gear - this isn’t on my PP yet.

There were a couple of obvious reminders on my assembly instructions like donet drive over 80 with the basket on and don’t go into an automatic car wash - duh 🙄 but maybe there r peeps out there that r dim bulbs lol

Anyways, wanted to put it on the PP as I have the bug now 😎/leaving in a few hours with the familia to head up north with the PP and hope we have good gas mileage / there is on off road park close by and may take a son and play and will report back 😎

Cheers

That's more like it, $15 vs $45... not a hard decision... I might get on just one just to provide access when I'm washing the top...

If I get a roof basket, I want it long enough to hold an Easy-Up which are about 50-something inches, so the Honda one would be too small...
