Video Transcript for Rola Roof Mounted Cargo Basket Review

There are so many options out there that allow you to carry cargo on the outside of the vehicle creating more passenger space inside. This sleek roof mounted basket from Rola does not detract from the look you like of your vehicle, only adds to it. Joe demonstrates how easily it can be installed onto your roof rails and be ready to haul sporting equipment, camping gear, luggage and more allowing you to transport the maximum number of people possible inside and still have room to enjoy each others company! So get ready for your next trip to the park or across the country and do it in style.

Today we are going to show you part number 59504 from Rola, the Rola roof mounted cargo basket. The stylish cargo carrier will clear the interior of your vehicle of clutter. Say for instance you have luggage you do not want to keep inside, you can put it on top of here and strap it down and it will work out great for you. Its durable corrosion resistant construction and universal mounting hardware will mount to virtually any roof rack, factory or after market. Also you can see on the front there it has a fairing to help deflect the wind over your luggage and what not and makes it an overall nice neat package. Also you can see that the tubing on here is all round which again adds to the sleek styling and maybe less wind resistance. Basically the Rola roof mounted cargo basket and how it attaches to the roof rack in the most simplest terms is that it just clamps into place. It has a pretty unique little system here. It has a u-bolt right here that actually goes to the bottom of your rack and these two knobs will actually clamp on in an assembly somewhat like this right here and gets clamped down into place. This opening is filled up by this little plastic bracket that goes between the bars. That way it takes up the slack and works on a variety of different vehicles.

At this point we will go ahead and show you how it gets installed on a typical OEM style roof rack. As you can see here we actually have the cargo basket laying on top of our factory roof rack. What you want to do is adjust the cross members so they sit evenly underneath the rack and also so the rack fits evenly on top of the vehicle so you have room to open your rear hatch also. Now I will go ahead and clamp it in place. Start of by putting the block in between the rear bar of the vehicle and the basket, it just pops into place. This top clamp goes down, and these two little squares where it fits into on that plastic block. Run your u-bolt onto it and then put the other end on. At this point we just run them down tight. And there you have it, now we only have three more to do. Now that we have it sitting there and snugged down, make sure it is the way you want it and then tightened down evenly to make it secure and really tight to your roof rack then you are ready to load your cargo onto it. As you can see we have the Rola roof mounted cargo basket installed and it looks pretty nice on the vehicle, it may add to the look of sportiness or maybe more of a utility look but overall it looks pretty nice. The rounded tubes on there really add to the design and flowing lines on todays SUVs. Also if you have a longer vehicle and have the room for it there is an extension to expand it, that part number is 59505. And there you have it for part number 59504 from Rola, the Rola roof mounted cargo basket.

After reading a lot of reviews, I ordered the Rola roof cargo basket with extension last weekend. On Thursday, the packages arrived at my door. The basket and the extension are black powder coated and of very strong and solid construction. No visible damage from the factory or shipping. Assembling the 3 pieces was easy. I read some reviews that said one or a couple of the screw holes did not align very well and there were no holes pre-drilled on the front for mounting the plastic wind deflector. I was fortunate that neither was true on mine. All the holes aligned fairly well and there were 4 pre-drilled holes in the front for wind deflector mounting. However, I did have one of the holes on the side that was just a tad too large so the screw would not have much bite going in. In fact, I could easily use my fingers to screw it in all the way in and take it out. There was no way to totally secure the screw - it just kept spinning once it's in. I figured it probably wouldn't be a big deal because there were 11 other screws to hold the pieces together and it did seem pretty solid. I ended up using some loctite on that particular screw, which may or may not do a good job. As some of the other reviews have suggested, the joints where the front, rear and extension tubes are joined together are not very precise (although joining them was a breeze) - several have visibly larger gaps, which is the culprit of developing rust for a lot of people when water gets in those joints. I applied silicon right away on those joints after I put the pieces together and let it dry overnight. This should prevent water from getting in the joints and developing rust. I'd recommend everyone doing so, regardless of which brand of basket you buy - it's impossible to have the joints so precise and air tight to the degree of water proof. Make sure you use the kind that's meant for outside and sun-proof :) A whopping $5 will save you a lot of headache down the road. This evening I mounted the basket with extension on top of my '06 4Runner. Yes, the basket is pretty heavy, but even mounting it by myself wasn't difficult at all. The brackets seated very well on the factory cross bars and the baskets sits on top of my truck very securely. I'm glad that I got the extension (I suggest you do too!) - the length is perfect for the 4Runner and it provides a much larger area to tie your cargo down. I know some people are concerned about not being able to use their sun/moon roof with the extension. It probably covers 1/2 to 2/3 of my moon roof, but there's plenty of clearance underneath for the moon roof to operate. I've looked at some pictures of the trucks with the basket without extension mounted and I think it looks sort of weird being that short and you lose quite a lot of cargo area. I love the low profile of the basket. It's just tall enough to function perfectly, but it looks so much better than Yakimas, Thules, and most other off brands. AND I was so excited to confirm that I had plenty of clearance to get through my garage door opening!! I think with most other baskets, I would not be able to park my truck in the garage anymore unless I take them off. That's why my big Thule roof cargo carrier always sits in the garage until I go on backpacking trips with my dogs. My Belgian Malinois and German Shepherd ride in their crates when they're in a vehicle and friends and I usually have quite a bit of gear that needs space in and on top of the vehicle :) I took the truck out just now for a spin on the highway to test the basket out. It was 8:30 at night and a lot quieter than day time. I could hear some wind noise once I got above 60 mph, but it was fairly minimal. It's certainly a lot quieter than my Thule cargo carrier. And I had the stereo OFF!! The whine from my BFG AT KO coming from underneath was more noticeable than the wind noise generated by the basket. I do agree with several other people's reviews and think that it would be even better if the manufacturer made the plastic wind deflector longer and cover the entire width of the front - I don't know why they didn't or don't. It would further reduce wind noise and look better too. The fastest I went during the test drive was 75 mph and there was no rattling whatsoever. I have not tested the basket with cargo loaded - will do on the next backpacking trip :) But I'm very confident that it will hold its own very well given the sturdy and solid construction. If they could make it a big lighter without sacrificing strength and rigidity, I would be even happier. Overall, I'm very satisfied with the purchase! I'm glad I did not spend more money getting a Yakima or Thule. The Rola is a really high-value product and I would rate it an "excellent" despite a couple of minor QA issues. Its strength and sturdiness give me peace of mind and I LOVE the lower profile it has compared to most other brands of baskets! Etrailer did a great job statusing me via emails after I placed my order and shipping it out so fast! 11835

Looks sharp on the 2014 Subaru Outback!!! I have been looking at the various cargo baskets for weeks and finally decided on the Rola Cargo Basket. I couldn't be happier. The basket fits perfectly on the new Outback. It doesn't look to small like the Yakima Loadwarrior (a.k.a the OEM cargo basket) or too large like the Yakima Megawarrior. It also isn't cheaply made like some of the other cargo baskets. Assembly was a breeze and I highly recommend purchasing/using a all weather silicone to prevent rust. Etrailer is a great company and upgraded my shipping for free! Delivery took about 3-4 business days and their customer service staff kept me updated along the way. 114776


It was my pleasure. I dont usually write reviews but in this case, etrailer is an excellent company and it was the least I could do. The Rola basket has worked really well and have used it several times on family vacations. Im actually in the market to by a new, bigger cargo basket Yakima Load Warrior wextension and I was wondering if etrailer offers any discounts for returning customers? I would be more than happy to write another review with pictures of this helps!

After camping out of our 2013 Subaru Outback for the first time, we realized the usefulness of a roof rack to put tubs and coolers overnight. We looked around for a quality basket when we came across this Rola basket at etrailer.com and the pricepoint was right on. (I'm not that guy who spends $$$+ for anything because it's a yuppy brand. I like quality products but shop around for competitive prices before I buy anything.) The package arrived exactly when quoted, undamaged. I opened the box right away and found the basket VERY easy to assemble. The rack comes in two main pieces. All you have to do is align and slide the two main pieces together, and drill the screws in. It's easy enough for one person to assemble with only a screwdriver or cordless drill with Phillips head bit. The Rola rack feels very sturdy and is a well-made product. Once I screwed on the wind deflector, I could tell it was a sharp design and was happy with the sporty looks. I could also tell the mounting brackets were easy to figure out and seemed they would be quite effective at bracing the rack to the top of our new Subie. I was able to lift the basket and lay it upon the factory crossbars without help, though I wouldn't recommend it unless you're fairly strong and/or rather tall. (I'm neither, but was determined to get it done to surprise my wife.) If I remember correctly, it weights a bit over 40-lbs. Aligning the rack on the vehicle and determining its position is a personal preference and is as easy as sliding and nudging it until you're good with it. The mounting brackets then mount around your factory crossbar in four places, and attach to two of the cross-tubes as shown in the manufacturer's photos. Very easy to attach and tighten, even BY HAND. Lots of PROS to the Rola basket, and etrailer.com too! Product Availability. Price. Ease of Assembly. Quick Delivery. Our only CON to the rack is the added wind noise, but we expected that. Great looks! Great design! Easy Assembly. Very happy Subie owners! 60969

I have had a Rola Rack 59504 with extension 59505 since 2006. I first had it on my 2006 Hummer H3 and it is now on my 2008 Hunner Edition Alpha H3. It made an over 4000 mile 9 state expedition loaded with a spare tire and camping gear. I traveled offroad on the Mojave Desert Road, trails around Death Valley and offroad trails in Moab, Utah. I really like this rack that I can easily remove without help and it only weighs 50 lbs so the rack itself does not use up weight allowed. I just ordered two 59506 mounting kits so I can add a third cross bar just for insurance offroading. Ashlea C was very helpful with my order. 25692


I have installed my ROLA roof rack and Im happy with the look but I have been in the market for a rear spare tire cooler rack which is featured in these pictures could you provide information as to who markets this product ??? Thanx BillyB

comment by: BillyB - 06/28/2013


We actually carry something very similar, the Surco Spare Tire Cargo Basket. Instead of sitting on top of the spare and securing around it, this one actually secures to the studs that are used to secure the spare. It works in much the same way as a spare tire mounted bike rack. Be sure to check out the review video too.

Patrick B - 6/28/2013


Hi David how did you mount the spare tire to the Rola roof Basket???? They do not offer a mounting device?Looks great!Let us know!

Another great product Rola! The Rola Platypus Expandable Roof Bag along with the Rola (59504) Cargo Roof Basket proved to be a great combination on my 2008 Chevy Equinox. The problem with the Equinox is the short space between the factory installed roof rack cross bars (only 26 inches). The solution was the Rola Cargo Roof Basket. It was easy to assemble (requiring only a screw driver) and mounted to the vehicle's roof rack without any tools at all. Once the basket was in place, attaching the Platypus bag was a snap...literally. Put the platypus on the basket, open the roof bag all the way, load the roof bag (we had 2 duffle bags, 2 gym/stuff bags, 1 small suitcase and a suit bag), close the roof bag zipper, strap it to the roof basket and pull it tight. Total install time was 15 minutes to put on the basket and about the same to load and secure. While on the road the Platypus was great. We traveled over 2500 miles round trip from NJ to Southern FL and we found little change in vehicle noise and only a slight decrease in the fuel mileage. Once we arrived we removed the Platypus Roof Bag and left the Basket in place...no problems at all. We hit some monsoon type rain (summer in Florida, what would you expect) and the Platypus performed just fine. This is not a 'water proof' bag and it states that right in the instructions. By placing the duffle bags and the other contents in plastic garbage bags, everything remained dry, without exception. One minor thing that I had to do on my own was to purchase caps for the thread ends for the 'U-bolt' mounts so the roof basket didn't puncture the Platypus Bag. I simply used tire valve caps ($2.00 for 8 at Wal-Mart) and they worked perfectly. 2326

I like the rack, I think it looks good on the Tahoe. I plan on leaving it there most of the time. There were a couple of minor dings, nothing more then buying it at a store (and it is a rack). Only real complaint was that the Rola sticker was on crooked, upside-down, and torn. Guess I'll need to peel that off and find another sticker. Here are some pics of the rack on my Tahoe. 17572

Very good rack!! I purchased the rack and extension (don't pass up the extension) for trips to the beach. With the extension, it easily handles my canopy, chairs, etc. MUCH easier to bungee that stuff down in a basket as opposed to strapping it securly to my crossbars. Overall I'm VERY pleased. Two minor points that could be improved: 1) connections when assembling the halves/extension. They imnproved the design by welding in one half of the connection tubes, thereby reducing the number of screws being relied upon. However, in the older models (as shown in the directions with the kit) you received a tube of sealant. This sealant has been excluded (or was not included in my shipment) which leads to a bit of rust inside of the connections and around the screw holes. I solved this by dis-assembling, cleaning, painting, and re-assembling this time with silicone in the joints. Really sounds worse than it is. Took perhaps 30mins total,spread over 2 nights. Now, I leave my basket on al the time, so it's constantly exposed to weather. 2) tie down brackete assembly. the large plastig pieces that fit between the bars should really be coated with some sort of rubber to increase friction against your cross-bars and prevent sliding. I had the basket REALLY loaded and experienced a shifting on my first right turn. Solved it with a bit or rope I had, cross-tied from front to basket to opposite side of roof rack. All that said, these are VERY MINOR and I LOVE this basket.....especially for the $$$. Very well built. 3490

Some quality control issues Overall, I like the basket, think it is fairly priced, and am happy with it. However, there were two quality control issues that should be noted. I'll mention those in a moment. The overall unit is solid and looks good on my black Jeep Liberty. It fit well on the OEM crossbars and was straightforward to install. The unit is pretty heavy, but it has a really solid, substantial feel that makes me think it will securely hold whatever I put up there (within the 130 lb limit). Now, on to the complaints. These are really small things, but are still worth noting. First, there is a noticeable dent in the main large tube on the left front side. It is clearly a factory defect because the dent has been powder coated along with the rest. If I had bought it locally, I would have taken it back and exchanged it. Having had it shipped, I simply cannot go through that. Second, there was an error in the placement of the holes where you use screws to hold the two halves together. Three of the four screw holes lined up fine, but on one of the smaller tubes, the inner hole didn't match the outer hole. I had to drill my own hole to set the screw. These aren't major problems, but it's sloppy on both counts. On balance, I would recommend the product and would not make a different choice if I had it to do over. Also, I should note that etrailer did everything you could ask for. I ordered it on a Saturday evening and they shipped it on Monday morning. It arrived Wednesday. You can't ask for more than that. 2065

We have installed and used this product. It was easy to put together and it makes loading our roof bag a snap. I would have given it an excellent rating, but we had some rusty screws that we had to replace as they were the ones that hold the front windscreen on and they were ugly and we couldn't stand looking at them. It didn't leave us feeling confident that the rest of this rack isn't going to rust, but it has been in the rain already with no signs. We'll see how it goes in winter. Overall, it is a great product though. Shipping was fast and it was simple to get on the roof racks. 137028


Weve been using this product for a year. We have taken it off the roof and reinstalled it several times and it still works great. My only issue is that we have had more rusting on certain parts of the rack installation equipment. Its meant to be in weather so they really should have done a better job on this. Overall, we have been very happy.

Holes didn't line up exact. Welds were sloppy but will hold fine. Used a little silicone to seal up the rack since it's in two pieces to help prevent rust. Rola did a poor job packing so there were a few scratches fresh out of an undamaged box. As far as looks go you can't beat the Rola rack unless you want to drop $1,000+ on a Gobi rack. Which the price is high because they originally designed them for Hummer owners who have alot more money. Functionality it works great. Other than it doesn't have attachments like the Yakima, but some Yakima attachments will work they are very similar. What it really comes down to is how much you want to spend and if you care about looks. Honestly Yakima probably is a better choice and not that different in cost. Though the Rola is nicer looking. At least on a Grand Cherokee. It's all personal preference. I think I covered everything except installation which didn't take long at all. 43335

Great product, and absolutely amazing price! Easy to assemble and install. Looks great. 61726


Still great. I only put the rack on for extended trips where we need the room. The rack is easy to put on, take off, and store. Its also big and sturdy enough to load up, and fits cargo bags that I bought to go with it. The only down side, as mentioned in other comments, is that the screw heads and joint for the frame rust. I did what others suggested and put black silicon caulk around the tube joints to keep the water out and prevent rust, to make it last longer. It seems they should recommend this, or even through a tube of sealer in the box to help with this. Also, it seems the screws themselves for the joint and windscreen could be made of stainless steel or something out that wont rust like the ones used.

I just installed my second Rola cargo basket on our other Subaru and decided I really should review it since it is an excellent roof rack. Construction, assembly and mounting are all solid. The paint seems perfectly good as well. If you live in an arid region, install and enjoy. If you live in a rainy region (Pac NW, coastal area, etc) I can now strongly recommend that you take a few minutes to rust proof your rack. You don't need to touch the outside, but you should briefly address the inside of the tubing where the rack slides together. I didn't on the first one, and then went back after several rainy months and sprayed rust inhibitor down inside the tubing, followed by expandable foam (to displace any future water), and then reassembled the two halves with stainless screws from the hardware store (highly recommend). On the second Rola rack, I did the above and then sprayed black rubberized (gutter-type) sealant on the joint. Overkill perhaps, but my roof rack is bomb-proof now. And rain proof. It is an awesome, sturdy, good looking rack that is much less expensive than some other options. If I hit a moose and ruin it, I'll buy another one. Subaru that is, the rack will be fine. 91965

Overall, this is a great product. It has sturdy construction, a durable finish, and looks great on my SUV. What I like: its well built, easy to install, and is very functional. What I don't like: (minor things) the manufacturer advertises the product in two ways - inside dimensions, 48 x 37.5 x 4 or outside dimensions 52 x 40.5 x 6. This confused me and I thought that I got the wrong model when it arrived, Thankfully, the awesome folks at Etrailer CALLED me shortly after I sent them a confusing email. Kudos to the folks at Etrailer. Two other things that I think could be better are the design of the mounting bolts and the rubber gaskets on the seams. The mounting bolts are easy to install and tighten down, but the threaded portion of the bolt sticks up toward the interior of the cargo area. The rubber gaskets are a little difficult to install, even after I figured out the that I needed a rubber safe lubricant. I also figured out that a second person is real handy to assemble and install the roof basket. I love the way it looks and its very functional. 166797

The one review that made me purchase this item was someone saying that they didn't understand why someone would pay more for Thule or Yakima. I have to say I 100% agree, my uncle has a Yakima he bought used on craigslist for more than the Rola cost me new and I think the Rola is much nicer looking for my purposes. I bought it with the extension as I plan to primarily use it on my Expedition, but like that I can remove the extension so it fits on my Jeep Grand Cherokee. Also, want to say that etrailer was great to deal with and they shipped the item out pretty much the same day I ordered it and it was at my house in less than a week. They even follow-up with you to make sure you like your purchase. I will buy all my trailer supplies from them going forward!! My only recommendation is to Rola, please package your stuff better, mine showed up pretty scratched up for a new item and one of the pieces even had a good size dent (not noticeable once I put everything together). I would have rated this a 5 if it wasn't for the damage. 53551

Really happy with this rack. The build is surprisingly sturdy for how little it costs. It fits great on my older model RX300, and did not need the extender. The installation was a breeze, and my only complaints are those already listed by other reviewers. The shipping leaves a little to be desired (not etrailer's fault). The box should have more packing materials... a little styrofoam would go a long way. The rack arrived a little scratched up, but as mentioned... nothing that wouldn't happen after a couple hundred miles of driving on the road. Also, the place where the front and back section connect is a little poorly thought out. I'd like to see some sort of rubber ring or other coverage to seal up the connection. But oh well... it's inexpensive, easy to install, looks great and i'm sure will do a great job. 24665

Loaded up luggage for 5 people and drove to Florida on top of my 2012 Dodge Journey. With a couple of tarps and proper ratchet straps and bungy chords, it worked like a charm, and saved me quite a bit of cargo room in the back. Had minimal wind resistance and hardly affected my gas mileage at all. Even wind noise on top was not significant. I highly recommend the Rola Rooftop Basket. 166962

Went together with no issues except I did have to "DE-UPS" it by taking out a bent tube end where the 2 halves join. UPS also through in some free scratches to boot. (I prefer Fed-Ex). This was a standardized fault of UPS and not the product. I did get the extension, it is longer & still SOLID. Bolted to the Factory VW Touareg crossbars with no issues. The Rola rack adds flexibility to carry long items also form local home centers. It also makes space for our 135LB German Shepard St. Bernard mix dog since all vacation supplies go up on the rack now. 20695

I mounted the Rola basket to a 2014 Forester with Factory aero bars. Construction of the Rola Basket is good for the price. Putting it together was a bit tricky since the two halfs took some effort to get together. Also, the Rola logo on the windscreen was smeared, as though it was packaged before the paint was dry. The basket is functional and sturdy, however, i was surprised that the mounting brackets will not stay in place unless the basket is installed. This means you need to line everything up again if you remove and reinstall the basket. I used a couple screws and washers through the square cut outs on the mounting brackets and now the basket can be removed and reinstalled easily without having to realign the mounts. Also, use of black silicon between the halves of the basket is recommended. Good product for the price. Best value I have seen for such a product. Etrailer has fast shipping which only makes it better. 156305

The roof rack is better built than I thought it would be. It's securely mounted and doesn't move around when you grab it and give it a good hard tug. It looks great on my truck. Apparently, Rola doesn't include sealant for the joints as in previous versions. However, the joints are nicely powder coated, so that should help. I'll pick up some black silicone and put a small bead around the joints anyway, so it's all good. This was my first purchase from etrailer, and I have to say I'm impressed. I ordered it Saturday afternoon and it was delivered Wednesday. Even more amazing is there was a bad storm and their warehouse was struck by lightning, crippling their computers. They STILL got it to me quickly. Kudos to etrailer, I'll 11706

Built very Strong. I like that it is made out of STEEL. Welds are better than average. The phillips head screws that were provided to assemble the tube halves were too small for the application and the pre-drilled holes were too large, so I substituted my own heavy duty screws to complete the assembly. The person that fabricated the tubes used a lot of excessive force bending up the tubes to be in the proper shape. It looks like it was not an automatic machine that did the bending. Although it is very close to a symmetrical shape and all the rungs lay on the same plane, it has some areas on the rear of the basket that are pretty hammered up that give less of the appearance I expected. The clamps that hold the basket to my roof rails are very good and strong. It is a rock solid installation. All in all, I am satisfied with the product. I may be critical because I worked a career in maintenance and fabrication. 58757

Bought this rack nearly 2 years ago. It has suited my needs very well. It has carried people, wood, and cargo. For the price you can't beat it! Its starting to show its age with some rust spots, but hey its metal, metal rusts. Don't let this deter you from buying it, GET IT MAN! I attached some pictures of it installed on my Jeep 18218

Sturdy, easy to put together! We bought it to help transport my daughter's ridiculous amount of luggage to college-- our poor Kia Sorrento couldn't fit it all. This basket will help keep the her things safe and secure. Fortunately it didn't weigh 130 lbs-- she and I were easily able to lift it onto the car. Nice to have the links with the product information as well! 95285


The roof rack is holding up great, thanks.

Great basket! We got the 18" extension and all parts fit together well and were easy to assemble. The mounting brackets are the best we have seen on similar priced racks and hold to rack securely to the rails of our 2006 Commander. The loading of camping equipment is much easier with a roof basket, just load it all on top and there are lots of places to attach tie-downs. Fits in standard garage on 4WD Commander with about 4" to spare. Overall great basket for the price, appears very well constructed and is pretty heavy steel. Make sure you check manufacturers weight limits for the rack on your vehicle, especially if ordering adding the extension. Good service and prompt shipping from etrailer. 43778

Installed the Rola Cargo Basket on my 2013 Kia Sorento and absolutely love the way it looks. I did read the prior reviews and took the advise of using black silicone on the screw holes and pipe connections to help avoid and rusting that may occur with exposure to rain. Our twins are older now and we traded in the minivan for this vehicle but we still have a ton of "stuff" needed for our activities and we are confident that this rack will get the job done! Our vehicle has a sun roof and a moon roof over the second row so laying anything on the roof of the vehicle was not an option. BTW - I assembled and installed it on my own while my husband was at work so it can be done solo =) 49703

Decent rack for the money but the total weight, including the mounting brackets, is more like 43 lbs....not the 38 lbs that is stated. Also, it is definitely not 6" deep. The depth was the main reason that I purchased this one but if you measure the depth of the inside of the rack it is only 3.5" on the front and back - the most important areas - and about 4.5" on the sides. As previous reviewers have stated....it came scratched and, in my case, one of the connecting side bars crushed in a bit so that I had to pry it open to connect the two halves...but after that all went well. Like I said...not bad for the money but disappointed that the depth offers much less protection than I had hoped for and the weight was greater. I have a Honda Element with a very limited load rating so the 5 lbs made a bid difference to me. 108714

Great product I have to agree with everyone here, this is great roofrack and there's nothing IMO to envy about thule or yakima. The one issue that is really annoying and can be corrected by including another wind deflector is the noise. I had to go through yakima for the one that attaches to the rack in the front, to avoid the unbearable noise inside the vehicle when using the extencion on the rack. I didnt like having to buy this, but i rather that, than dealing with the tremendous noise inside the 07 t4r(4runner). I also had some issues with the screws and the a little dent in the rear tube but nothing that would make me reconsider my puchase. Altogether a great buy, the price is unbeatable, however keep in mind that you will need that extended wind deflector if using the extension. 3023

I was very impressed with the rack. The box was a bit mangled in shipping and caused a scratch in the finish, but nothing I wont do while off roading anyways. The rack itself is very well built with nice lines, quality welding, etc. It fits my 01 Grand Cherokee like a glove; right between the sunroof and the rear hatch. My only complaint is I cant get the factory rails to latch back down again due to the spacing in the rack. This is a Jeep design flaw, not Rola's problem. Even with the rails not locked the rack is still quite sturdy up there. I would purchase it again with no thought. 11499

I ordered the Rola roof rack from etrailer and I was very pleased! It came in a day before the expected delivery date, and I put it together as soon as I got it. It's a great roof rack for the price and It's just as beefy as it looks. ( I had some fun getting it on my roof) The only Complaint I have is that the Joints dont sit flush when you screw them together. Which could be prone to rusting and dripping on top of your roof (but nothing that electrical tape cant fix!) Overall For the price you can't beat it! Highly Recommend this roof rack and ordering from etrailer! 49544

I gave this product an excellent rating for value. It is very well built for the money and I would recommend. The downside is there are no accessories available for this item. I would like to have the option of ordering a spare tire carrier, hi-lift jack,ax/shovel, or off-road light mounting system(s). These will have to be fabricated (nothing some plate steel and velcro shouldn't cure). I should have ordered the extension kit...this rack is a bit small for my Jeep Cherokee and wastes some very valuable roof storage. My 31x10.5-15 spare tire takes up most of the inside area...but like I said, I would buy it again! P.S. Buy a tube of Black RTV sealant for the adjoining parts and screw holes, let dry overnight before installing...you will thank yourself later. 36397

The cargo basket itself is of good quality although some pre-coat pitting was noted. It does not fit my 2006 Grand Cherokee Overland due to the fact that the rack rest on top of the cross-bar tension knobs. I had to raise the plastic basket mounts with 1/4" rubber gasket material in order to tighten the basket down onto the cross bars without the basket lowering itself onto the tension knobs. Case in point: pay close attention to the outside measurements of the rack and the cross-members of your vehicle. Still worth every cent. I feel confident that my camp loads will remain secure as mounted. The large diameter 1 1/2" and 1" tubing sold me from the beginning. I will be purchasing the center expansion unit soon. 31033

I love this roof basket from Rola. It is solid construction and it has a nice coating on the basket similar to Rhino skin that you would find in a bed liner.

I was very pleased with the timely receipt of the very well made roof basket. The installation was a little tricky and it took some time to get everything lined up. But, it looks great. Very solid. I have not used the basket, but it looks like it could hold anything I need to carry. And than some! Also, using the black silicon was a mess but it did help to slide the rubber pieces into position. Recommend using rubber gloves. The rack does create a lot of wind noise with the sun roof open...so when in use I'll keep the roof closed. Nice job and would buy it again because it solved my beach chair carrying problem! 186999

I purchased this roof basket with the extension and overall I am satisfied with it considering the price. But... Assembling the rack was a nightmare! None of the parts fit together correctly and had to be forced into place with a hammer. Also, they sent me 3 large rubber gaskets when I needed 4, so one connection is unprotected. Assembly requires: -screwdriver -rubber mallet -silicone sealant -spray foam sealant -possibly a drill if screw holes don't match up After all this it looks great on my 4Runner and seems pretty strong, but I am worried that it won't last very long. 169047

  • As long as your 2011 Subaru Forester has cross bars that run side to side that are less than 3-1/4 inches wide, the Rola Roof Mounted Cargo Basket, # 59504, will fit. The cross bars will need to be 26-1/4 inches apart, center to center, 30 inches apart center to center, 33-3/4 inches apart center to center, or 37-1/2 inches apart center to center. I have included a link to the installation details and a video review of this basket. Installation is not difficult and I am sure even the most...

  • Spare Tire Mount and Off Road Lights Available for the Rola Roof Cargo Basket
  • We carry the Navigator Cyber Driving Light, # NV-509W, that could be mounted directly to the Rola Roof Cargo Basket, # 59504, but we do not carry a spare tier carrier or off-road light bracket specifically for this basket. I have included a link to a similar question that was answered by another expert showing how this light can work.

  • Roof Cargo Carrying Options that Do Not Use a Roof Rack
  • All of the cargo baskets and boxes we offer are meant to attach to crossbars that are first installed on the truck. We do not offer any baskets or boxes that would mount directly to the roof surface. We do offer some roof mounted cargo bags like the Rightline Sport1, part # RL100S10. Although these cargo bags work best with crossbars or a cargo basket, they can be mounted directly to the roof and the mounting straps run through the cab to hold the bag in place. Keep in mind that the...

  • Will Rola Roof Mounted Cargo Basket # 59504 Fit a 2011 Nissan Pathfinder with Factory Cross Bars
  • You might want to check the roof rack section in the owners manual of your 2011 Nissan Pathfinders. We have a newer Pathfinder here that has a factory roof rack and the crossbars look like they are fixed, but they can be removed and adjusted into different holes on the side rails. I also looked up a 2011 Nissan Pathfinder owners manual online and it also showed pictures and described how the factory crossbars can be adjusted or removed. If your factory crossbars are adjustable you...

  • Will The Thule Roof Rack Fairing fit the Factory Crossbars on a 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe
  • The Thule Roof Rack Fairing, part TH871XT, is designed to fit either Thule Square Load Bars or Thule Aero Load Bars. Likewise, the Yakima Fairings will only fit Yakima load bars. Typically, the front cross bar on a factory system is far back enough that a fairing is not needed. Often times the Thule or Yakima roof racks will put the front bar close enough to the windshield that a fairing is needed or recommended. Depending on what roof rack accessory you are using, some will actually...
