If you're trying to figure out size, make sure you measure with the tailgate up for rear clearance, that's how far it will extend toward the front.

Fair point. I always just wondered how much the warranty of a Thule was worth vs. the 1 year of the rebrands. Piece of mind, really, but sounds like it's not worth anything.. haha thanks!

Would it be fine to store outdoors with a bike tarp or vet it? I would think so. I’ve been wanting one but have nowhere to store it.

I was going to post this, I grabbed one of the Thule Odin's earlier this year. My old Force XT L had zero issues when I sold it to upgrade to the XL. Not sure what the warranty issues are that you would be concerned with, these things are pretty tough

I got the Alpine model from Canadian tire. I got it because I wanted to have space on my minivan for other stuff (such as a kayak or a bike mount) and I use it to carry skis or fishing gear mostly. I don't have an Odyssey, but on my van I can fit a J-style kayak rack with it. It would be tight though. I did measure my rack and did my own research obviously, including the max width and max weight.
Btw I really like the clamps on the Thule, really easy to mount and dismount. Thumbs up for me on the Alpine model.

OMG, the ONE day I don't check RFD early in the morning and this happens. I was looking for this EXACT product and size. I would've been fine with the wait too since I was hoping to have it for camping next year.

Broke one of the clamps when storing it. Called Thule, they promptly sent a replacement

It's not too big. I know it seems that way, but I have an L sitting on top of my Mazda 3 hatch and I wish I had gotten the XL. No view obstruction and it can easily sit forward of the windshield...

I had a Volvo-branded Thule for around 10 years and it worked very well (equivalent to the Ascent 1600). The only issue was surface rust on the Quick Grip clamps, but those clamps are user-replaceable fairly easily, if needed.

I ended up selling the cargo box and switched to a Yakima Skybox 16. I find it has a much better attachment system and opening/closing the box is much easier than the Thule (I haven't used the more recent Thule's but I always found it incredibly difficult to close and lock the Thule when it was reasonably full, whereas the Yakima simply latches upon closing).

Is that the XL size? I would've imagined it to be slightly longer.

I've had my Thule Force XL for over 6 years and I love it. Great for camping trips in the summer and ski trips in the winter. I've been using it on my Honda Pilot for 4 years now without any issues. Trunk opens fine without touching. Before that I had it on my Honda Odyssey. I had to install my crossbars a little further forward so the trunk wouldn't hit the Thule.

Replacement clamp...or... replaced the whole thing??
