Hi, Mary! This rooftop bag is compatible with all vehicles that are equipped with a 4-way roof rack, meaning there are points for attachment on all 4 sides of the bag once it is on the roof. If your Ford Explorer is equipped with raised roof side rails and crossbars or a luggage rack, this bag can be used. I hope that is helpful!

Hello, Tom! This roof top bag is designed to be mounted onto an existing rooftop luggage rack. The bag requires points of attachment on all 4 sides, so the rooftop rack will need to have 4 sides for the bag to attach to. For more clarification, please see the Instruction Manual. Thank you!
Hello, Jill! If your vehicle already has raised side bars on its roof, you would simply need to buy crossbars to create a 4-way roof rack. We offer the Cargoloc Rooftop Crossbars as a rooftop crossbar option. If your vehicle does not already have raised side rails, we recommend contacting the vehicle manufacturer to see what your options are for getting raised side rails installed. I hope that is helpful!
Hey, Jenn! Determining the right roof cargo option for you depends on whether or not your vehicle is equipped with a roof rack, and whether it is equipped with a 2-way or 4-way roof rack. We recommend contacting your vehicle manufacturer to determine what roof rack options are available for you if you do not already have a roof rack. If you already have a 4-way roof rack, then this expandable rooftop back is a great option. I hope that is helpful!
