So why did you ask?I think I'll just look in the manuals for the vehicle. rails and box specifications and add them together.😂
There's a reason why I don't leave the roof box on all the time...Or...wait for the crunch and then measure the height of whatever you hit. You'll know that the overall height is greater than that.
I asked because I thought that it could be a simple solution. But with your idea I've highlighted in bold, I think it could work pretty well. Thank you much.So why did you ask?
I only trust me. I've been bit by too many unaccounted-for gotchas to rely on 3 different sets of documentation. “Doveryai no proveryai”
Another quick option would be to slowly pull under something that you are sure that is slightly higher than the overall height and note the difference. A branch, a sign, one of those swinging height warning bars, etc. Then measure the height of whatever you pulled under and subtract the difference.

Similar for me! Though, it was home improvement tools/items (borrowed table saw, stuff like that). Now I have a car in there getting slowly repaired, so still not daily-driver friendly...)I'm a little bragadocious of having my garage back. Its been since June 2017 and I haven't been able to park a car there. I inadvertently turned it into a motorcycle shop, mostly Honda there too
My bad, the links have been edited and now should go to the correct page (s).Your 2 links go to the same page. I'm interested in seeing the clamps mentioned.
How did I never notice in your signature that you have a camry alltrack with a 3S-GTE swap!? Had an MR2 Turbo, so very familiar with that engine. Looks like a super fun sleeper of a ride!Its rust free, just over 200k miles sitting in my garage right now waiting for some maintenance/repairs to be done (leaky power steering lines and worn suspension bushings). Motor swapped with a 3s-gte (2L turbo, ~280hp right now), manual transmission, coilovers, big brakes, etc. Oh, and cold AC and working cruise control. The paint needs some work now and it is starting to show its age here and there (32 years old!!) Good times.
That particular trip, I had the 4 snowboards visible, plus more more inside the box with two pairs of skis and three people inside. It was all the 'overflow' from the other car I was travelling with. Leave the 115hp auto to climb the mountain while the 300+HP Evo X cruises along barely loaded (those things have almost no cargo space).
Back on subject - if you can do a hitch carrier for your needs, it will be better for aerodynamics - and no risk of damage when you drive through low-clearance situations (parking garages, garages, etc.). Another thing to think about...
It has spent some time with that roof box on it too:How did I never notice in your signature that you have a camry alltrack with a 3S-GTE swap!? Had an MR2 Turbo, so very familiar with that engine. Looks like a super fun sleeper of a ride!
