I have put thule wing bar 150 cm wide. There is enough place to place any other cargo near from the box, like reddel, surfboard...

I’m not sure about 150cm, I measured and that seems like the bars are slightly wider than the pop up roof. I think I’m going to order 135cm and give them a go.

Looks neat, what is the model number? 762? 962?
Bars 1350mm 962B
Feet 753
Fitting kit 3084

They fit well but be sure to ensure the feet are located central over the T channel.
In the current position I get very little wind nose from them, a slight whistle rather typically between 50 and 60 but it’s hardly noticeable and I’m sure it could be adjusted out if it becomes a niggle.

hi All,

Thule seem to be replying to people saying they don’t have a compatible kit which only leaves the very industrial looking £290 kit from westfalia

However I discovered the thread below which has this working combination:

The Thule roof rack is composed of three parts.

1. Thule 763 square tube, is also available as Aluschine.

2. Tuhle Kit 3084 fixed point XT (183084)

3. Thule 753 footset low fixpoint

Hi I'm a new owner of a mp, I've asked Mercedes, halfords, thule, none of them can give me a definite answer as regards fitting roof rack &roof box so I've just read all the comments on the oners club site it seems to make sense, I hope your all correct about the fittings, thankyou for the information, regards john.

I tried unsuccessfully to contact Thule who essentially ignored a request to specify a wing edge bar - without obligation for fitness - so have just ordered the 127cm kilt from the club shop!

Hi, Im about to buy a amg marco polo after a year deciding! Do you know if the 450l MB Box fits with the Thule combination you shared?

I cannot say for certain since I don’t have a roof box but the Thule rails are engineered in the same way to accept mounting a number of other ancillaries.. I would be confident enough to buy a MB box if I needed one... I have had a couple of OEM MB racks in the past and they appear very similar to the Thule.. I would also buy some steps because I am 6 foot and it’s not that easy getting up there lol.

I have a MB roof box that I haven't used in years and I shall be putting up for sale soon. However I cannot try for you as I don't have bars on my MP. I do agree with Method7 that MB roof bars on past vehicles are very similar to Thule and I seem to recall reading somewhere that they were made by them but could be mistaken. If I were to decide to use the roof box I would be confident that it would fit on the bars - Agree on the steps too :)

Thanks so much for your reply. This is re assuring to hear. We were told by MB dealer they don’t fit! It’s funny how little they seem to know. Glad there’s a great community of owners to help each other.
