£289.95
RRP: £350.00

The Husky XXL includes all the essential attributes of any KAMEI box - good looks, ease of use, top quality mouldings, excellent security, wide opening, safety tests that are up with the best. The XXL also has a "pull to shut" central locking system, and a 75kg load limit, so it's got everything going for it.

Auto Express Best Buy Award Winner 2012.

Do you need roof bars as well? If so, you'll get a big discount if you choose a box and bars package deal - see below for more details.



The Husky XXL has a rated capacity of 510 litres but thanks to its low profile reinforcing ribs and fittings, and a lid that's an optimum shape for load carrying, we reckon it loads like a 600 litre box.

It includes KAMEI's ingenious central locking system - all the benefits of central locking without the potential drawbacks:

The box is unlocked with a quarter key turn, but locked again just by pulling the box shut. Big deal? Actually, yes. All other central locking systems have a big drawback when it comes to closing the box, because you need to turn the key in the lock at the same time as holding down both the front and the rear of the box – which is a three handed operation if the lid is being held up by bulky gear, or if the base is sagging due to incorrect loading or weakness.

The KAMEI system has three catches and three hinges, for extra security. And you can’t take the key out of the lock until the box is properly shut. It's a really neat system.

Other specifications:

  • The plastic is 'DUROKAM', a top quality ABS plastic developed by KAMEI to optimise weight, stability and impact resistance.
  • The box meets the strict requirements of the DIN 75302 / ISO 11154 programmes, with crash and vibration testing carried out at the TÜV as well as the German Centre for Aerospace.
  • All KAMEI boxes are refined after wind tunnel testing.
  • The special spring struts provide wide and easy opening and closing.
  • There are sliding low profile box to bar fittings at all four fixing points, so there’s never a need to drill new holes if the distance between your roof bars is non standard.
  • This box comes with T-track adapters which slide into the slots in the top of aluminium roof bars (including all the aluminium bars we sell), and also with U-bolts (M8 thread) which will fit around bars up to 83mm wide x 32mm deep. It always makes sense to use T-track adapters with aluminium roof bars, because these allow you to position the box anywhere on the full length of the bars, it's visually a much smarter look (no bits of metal visible below the roof bar, also more aero-dynamic), and T-tracks allow you to push the box further back or forward than is possible with U-bolts - which can be important if there's a potential clash with a fully opened tailgate. This is the reason why KAMEI don't use claw style box to bar fittings - they can clash with the roof bar feet, limit box positioning, and often need to be replaced with extra-cost T-track adapters.
  • If you have BMW roof bars, note that these have unusually wide T-track slots, and will require additional adapters - see part KM52004 in the list below.
  • 6 year guarantee!
  • Weight 18kg empty, maximum load 75kg, gross loading limit 93kg.
  • This is a left hand opening box; it opens on the passenger side of a normal UK right hand drive car.

Very few customers know much about the roof box market before they visit our site. We have a lot of information about the things to think about before buying, and the “real world usefulness" of various roof box features, but you’ll be buying sight unseen, and you probably won’t have used a roof box before, so there is inevitably some luck in getting a box that you’ll be happy with.

We want to remove the risks of buying these large and often expensive items, perhaps from brands which almost every other roof box retailer doesn’t stock, and so we have a unique “90 day Exchange Scheme” for roof boxes.

This allows you to use a roof box and, with the benefit of experience, to exchange it for a new one within 90 days of invoice date. Most exchanges are from a shorter box to a longer one, or from a wider box to a narrower one.

These are the rules of the Exchange Scheme:

  • You are allowed one exchange only.
  • The original box must be in "as new" condition, subject only to fair wear and tear.
  • The replacement box must be a different model.
  • The replacement box must not be part of a package deal or be from our Bargains section.
  • Roof bars are never part of the Exchange Scheme.

This is how the exchange scheme works:

  • We charge in full for the replacement box, including the appropriate carriage charge and a charge for any packaging needed for the return of the original.
  • We arrange the collection and pay the return carriage costs.
  • When the original box arrives back here we refund you for the invoice value of the original box, but you won't get back more than the invoice value of the replacement box. In other words, if the replacement is cheaper than the original we won't be giving you "extra cash back".

Please note: we can only collect items from mainland UK.

We offer our existing customers a full "Next Day if possible" spares service, and will cannibalise new stock as required to find you the parts you need.

To find the spare parts you need, please see the diagram below, identify the product codes, then choose them from the list below. If you need more than 1 of any item, change the quantities in the Shopping Basket.

Delivery charges and arrangements:

We charge a contribution towards delivery costs, depending on what you order, where you live, and how quickly you want the goods.

For most UK addresses, the charge for our two to three day service is £5.50 (£9.50 for orders including a roof box) and our charge for Next Working Day deliveries is £8.50 (£12.50 for orders involving a roof box). AutoSock, shoe chains, RUD i-Sock, and small spare parts, are charged £3.95 (Royal Mail Tracked), £4.95 (Royal Mail Express Tracked) or £5.95 (express courier, usually Next Working Day).

There are different charges for any delivery including a sea crossing, and deliveries to Skye - we will contact you with a quote on receipt of order.

Orders for Next Working Day delivery need to be received by 4.00pm.

There are no deliveries on Saturdays, Sundays or Bank Holidays, except for postable items where Royal Mail has a Saturday delivery. Next Working Day orders placed on a Friday will be delivered on the Monday, Next Working Day orders placed on a Saturday will be delivered on the Tuesday.

We are very flexible with our deliveries and will aim to deliver on a day and at an address which suits you. Goods can usually be left without signature - we prefer this with roof boxes. There's a "Special Delivery Instructions" box in the checkout area where we'll ask you to choose a typical instruction and then amend it to suit your particular requirements.

No retailer or courier company can ever "guarantee" a Next Working Day delivery. All courier companies occasionally have the same transport problems as can happen to everyone else, including snow blocked roads, closed roads, traffic jams, mechanical breakdown, an inability to find the delivery address, or to gain access to it if, for example, it's in a block of flats. We work with some of the best couriers in the business, and overall they provide an outstanding service.

We take the following cards, and also PayPal. Please note that the entry on your card statement will be from "The Roof Box Company".
