I would love to just move our Thule Ascent 1600 box onto the Impreza from our 4runner but I am afraid I might run into trouble.
Anybody using longer cargo boxes? We specifically use it for skis & snowboards. Luggage in the summer if we are taking a longer road trip with the dog.
Can the rear spoiler be taken off? Dealer is saying no......
I use a SportRack Aero 1300 which is the same length as your Ascent 1600 and I have no issues with my hatch open. I do not have the spoiler but there is so much room behind the box that I doubt it would be an issue with a spoiler.
