The coffin as my husband likes to call it is heavy duty and holds up in our Park City weather. It is much easier for me to throw skis in this box than to put them in the racks so I love it. We fit it to our car using the fit guide on Thule's site and it is works perfectly.
Doesn't Fit Honda Pilot
The Thule Ascent 1100 was exactly what I wanted. I checked the Thule website and it seemed that it would fit my 2005 Honda Pilot. When I got the box it did not fit. There is limited adjustment to the mounting and you can't make it clear the back hatch. When I called Thule they said it would fit the rack but it wouldn't clear the hatch. They said only the Boxter would fit for sure. That wasn't the shape I wanted. Backcountry was very helpful and had the box shipped back for credit. I called several other manufacturers and was unable to get accurate dimensions to determine if their boxes would fit. If they would just give dimensions from the back of the box to the front and rear mounts (their range) you could see if it would fit. Finally, I had a neighbor with a Thule Frontier Box who let me test fit it. I had to drill some new holes for mounting, but it fits fine now.
I have had this box for 3 years now and it does the job. Holds up against everyday use, rarely do I take it off. Has made multiple trips across the country and still looks great. It will hold numerous pairs of skis, think the most I have ever had in there at once is 4 skis (100+) underfoot, but that was some extreme packing. I have put up to six skis in there when the east coasters are tagging along 110 or less underfoot. I guess my only complaint would be that the lock can be pretty stiff if it is cold out.
Recently had to change the locks on the box and it was no big deal, just follow the simple little guide that they come with and you are good to go. The mounts have a lot of room for adjustment so it does fit a bunch of different set-ups. I have put it on some other vehicles and its a quick install. Just need to line it up and screw it down. Definitely would recommend to a friend.
