Video Transcript for Curt Extension for Roof Mounted Cargo Basket Review

Matt: Hey guys Matt here at etrailer.com. Today were going to be taking a quick look at the Curt 21 Inch extension piece for the Curt Rooftop Cargo Basket, part number C18117. Now this extension piece will give you an additional 21 inches to your existing Curt Rooftop Cargo Basket. You can see its made of the same heavy duty, strong steel construction. It has that nice black powder-coat finish to help resist rust and corrosion. It also comes with the hardware and tools so that you can install it directly to your existing Curt Rooftop Cargo Basket. Now one thing to keep in mind when purchasing this extension you want to make sure that the roof or basically how youre vehicle is engineered so that youre going to have enough space. For example here we had to push the basket a little bit farther close to the front just to make sure that we can get access to the rear hatch.

Now it is kind of close on this vehicle so again just something to really keep in mind when youre deciding to purchase this extension. So with the extension the overall basket dimensions are going to be 62-1/2 inches long by 37 inches wide by 4 inches deep. Now well go ahead and load up some gear and take it out on the road. Now with our gear all loaded up well be using the 65 inch by 38 inch Curt stretchable cargo net to secure our gear in place. This is part number C18201. Now with our gear all secured we can go ahead and take it out on the road. That will complete todays review of the Curt Roof Mounted Cargo Basket Extension, part number C18117.

Awesome job !!!!!! Best service again ! !!!! 853164

- C18117

The product itself is great. The hardware (machine screws), as noted in many reviews, are sub-par and the heads strip very easily with the tool provided. The manufacturer is likely aware of this ongoing issue and should address it by utilizing stainless steel screws/hardware for durability and rust prevention...I had to spend an additional $10 to bring it up to par... So this is not at all an issue for etrailer, as you delivered as promised and at a great price! 663027

One year later and still going strong! Having replaced the screws as mentioned in my initial review, the cargo rack is easily converted to the longer rack when used on my larger vehicle. No rust and strong, this rack is a worthwhile investment.

A real bargain to extend your storage b asket. 261251

Pretty good. A few minor rust spots that need touching up with paint, but then again, I drive this on the salt water beach all summer.

I bought the Curt roof top basket and mounted it to my 13 JK. I wanted it lower than the offered brackets would allow so I made my own mounting kit. I worked great and looks much better low to the roof. 246505

- C18117

Loved the price and the look. I had a very difficult time tightens the attachment brackets that connect the carrier to the roof. The lock nuts on two of them were extremely hard to tighten. I had to use vice grips on two of them. One of the plastic pieces broke that cover the lock nut. 238888

- C18117

Shipped with the complete rack that I'm wondering if these parts aren't stolen! Ordered another part from a jeep company and their product hasn't even shipped yet. Etrailer even called me when there was a small issue with my credit card; their customer service representative was fantastic and went above and beyond is making sure was my order was processed and would ship as ordered. Product is top notch and better than some car roof racks I've seen a jeep functions. 237686

- C18117

I have bought the Curt Roof mount cargo basket 2 weeks prior to a trip, so we could carry more to and not be so cramped in my Subaru Forester. However, the original one I bought seems a little small. So I bought this extender for it, and it worked out great. they shipped it immediately, and delivery was very fast. Easy to assemble and would recommend to anyone who has a shorter basket. 143338

Very happy with this product. The extension was very easy to install. Looks great on my Ford Transit Connect. Very fast delivery and great customer service. Great price for a great product. 123754

Ask the Experts about this Curt Accessories and Parts

  • Can Curt Roof Mounted Cargo Basket be Used With Two Extensions
    You can use two of the Extension for Curt Roof Mounted Cargo Basket # C18117 with the Curt Roof Mounted Cargo Basket # C18115 but the issue is that this basket has a very specific fit, needing to fit crossbars that are spaced 15", 22", or 29" apart on center and bars that are just 3" wide x 1-5/8" tall. For your Ford Excursion the issue is getting bars of that size at that specific spread. You can easily add a third crossbar but I'm not sure what roof rack you have or the year of your...

  • Will the Extension for Curt Roof Mounted Cargo Basket Fit Other Roof Baskets
    The Extension for Curt Roof Mounted Cargo Basket part # C18117 as the title states is for the Curt Roof Mounted Cargo Basket part # C18115. Therefore, I cannot confirm it will work with your Haul Master Roof Mounted Cargo Basket. I would be happy to try this out for you but we don't carry Haul Master products either. The best option we can offer you if you need more space is to sell your Haul Master Roof Mounted Cargo Basket and then obtain the Curt Roof Mounted Cargo Basket part # C18115-117...

  • Will Curt Extension Work On Reese Roof Cargo Basket
    I do have a solution for you, however the Curt Extension # C18117 referenced in your question is not compatible with the Reese Roof Cargo Baskets. If you are looking for a larger basket or one that can be extended, we do have a few options. The above mentioned Curt Extension will work with the Curt Roof Mounted Cargo Basket # C18115 to add 21 inches of length. We also have the Rola Roof Mounted Cargo Basket # 59504 and compatible 18-3/4 inch Extension # 59505. I have included video...

  • Will Curt Extension fit Yakima LoadWarrior Cargo Basket

  • Low Profile Light Bar and Cargo Basket for a 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
    Cargo baskets like # C18117 are going to require some sort of roof rack crossbars to mount to your 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited but I have a different recommendation you might like. First, since you want to mount lights on the Jeep I recommend using the Carr XRS Rota light mounting bar # CARR210221. This light bar will eliminate clearance concerns and create a low-profile look by rotating the bar down, even with lights mounted. And there is no drilling required for installation. For...

  • Will Using the Extension with a Curt Cargo Basket Increase its Weight Capacity
    Adding the extension # C18117 to your Curt cargo basket will not increase the weight capacity. It does not decrease it either. The weight capacity will stay the same. Please be sure to consult the vehicle owner's manual and/or the vehicle manufacturer for the roof weight carrying capacity. There are several components that have weight capacities, the basket is one, the roof rack is another, and the vehicle roof is the third. You will need to go by whichever one has the lowest capacity.

  • Is Extension Piece for Curt Cargo Basket # C18115-117 Included or Separate
    The extension piece that comes with the Curt basket part # C18115-117 is included, but if you needed it separately it would be part # C18117. Basically the part # C18115-117 is just the part # C18115 and the part # C18117.

  • Will the Curt Roof Mount Cargo Basket Fit a 2013 Toyota RAV4 with Factory Roof Rack
    You will not need to add an aftermarket roof rack to your 2013 Toyota RAV4 since it already has a factory roof rack with crossbars. You will need to measure the crossbars though to determine if the Curt cargo basket # C18115 will fit. Measure how thick or wide the bars are. If they are under 3 inches wide then the mounting hardware for the basket will fit. Next measure the bar spread by measuring from the center of the front bar to the center of the rear bar. That distance will need...

  • What is a Waterproof Storage Solution for a Roof Cargo Basket?
    It is absolutely fine to leave a roof cargo basket on when it is not in use. This adds a rugged style to the vehicle and means that you will not need to find space inside your home or garage to store the rack between trips. A recommended setup for a cargo basket on a 2016 Jeep Renegade is the Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack, part # MPG216 combined with the Curt Roof Mounted Basket, part # C18115. This provides additional cargo space and is expandable with the Cargo Basket Extender, part #...

  • Will Yakima Spare Tire Carrier for Roof Baskets Fit a Curt Basket on a 2008 Ford Escape
    The Yakima spare tire carrier # Y07076 will fit a Curt cargo basket # C18115 but it holds the tire in the confines of the basket. So if the basket you have is not wide or long enough for the spare tire on your 2008 Ford Escape then you would need either a different basket or the extension for the Curt basket, # C18117. If your Escape has the standard 235/70-16 tires then those are roughly 29 inches in diameter so there should not be a problem fitting in the Curt 41.5 x 37 inch basket.

  • Will Spare Tire Carrier for Yakima Roof Rack Cargo Baskets # Y07076 Fit Curt Cargo Basket # C18115
    It should work, the dimensions are a little bit different but they should be close enough to make it work. The Spare Tire Carrier for Yakima Roof Rack Cargo Baskets # Y07076 that you referenced is designed to fit cargo baskets with 1/2 in diameter cross tubes that are spaced 3-11/16 inches apart measured on center. The Curt Roof Basket part # C18115 that you referenced has 1/2 diameter tubes that are spaced 3-1/2 inches apart. That's a difference of a little under .2 of an inch in...

  • Availability of Extension for MaxxTow Roof Mounted Cargo Basket # MT70115
    There is not an extension available for the MaxxTow Roof Mounted Cargo Basket # MT70115 that you referenced. We do have other cargo baskets like the Curt # C18115 that can be extended with the add-on piece # C18117, but unfortunately this isn't possible with your existing unit. If you are needing a little more space for cargo another option is a hitch-mounted cargo carrier like the Curt # C18145 if you have a trailer hitch installed on your vehicle. If you don't yet have a trailer hitch...

  • Does Roof Basket Have an Extension?
    There are similar baskets with extensions available, but none that will work with the Reese or Rola Roof Cargo Basket . Instead, I recommend checking out the Curt Roof Mounted Cargo Basket # C18115 and adding Extension # C18117. This is a 21" extension which will make the Curt basket a total of 61-1/2" long x 37" wide x 4" deep. The Curt basket will fit on most roof racks so long as the bars are spaced 15", 22", or 29" apart on center and have dimensions of up to 3" wide x 1-5/8" tall.

  • Can 2 Extensions be Added to Curt Roof Mount Cargo Basket
    On the Curt roof mount cargo basket # C18115 you could use 2 extensions, # C18117. This would make the basket 83-1/2 inches long. Because of the length I strongly reocmmend adding a third roof rack bar for extra support. Even if you used some foam blocks or something similar, extra support is likely going to be needed.

  • Curt Roof Cargo Carrier # C18115 Compatibility with a 2006 Acura MDX
    The crossbars on your 2006 Acura MDX should will have to be at least 15 inches apart. Since you have crossbar spacing of 27 inches, this cargo carrier should work very well for you. If you had even wider crossbars or wanted more cargo space, you could install a Extension for Curt Roof Mounted Cargo Basket, part # C18117. I included installation instructions for both of these products below for you to check out.

  • Will the Curt Cargo Basket Fit on a 2011 Nissan Armada Platinum with the Factory Roof Rack
    As long as the crossbars on your 2011 Nissan Armada Platinum are no wider than 3 inches, then the Curt Cargo Basket, # C18115, and the extension, # C18117, will fit. As a side note, this cargo basket requires a minimum crossbar spread of 15 inches, which should not be a problem on your vehicle. Also, the weight capacity of the cargo carrier remains at 150 lbs when the extension is added. Before loading any cargo on your roof, I recommend checking your owners manual to verify the weight...

  • Compatibility of Curt # C18115 Roof Rack with 2006 Toyota 4Runner With Roof Rails
    The Curt Roof Mounted Cargo Basket # C18115 plus the # C18117 extension won't attach directly to the side rails on the roof of your 2006 Toyota 4 Runner. The basket needs roof rack crossbars to provide an attachment point. SportRack offers a reasonably priced crossbar kit that would work perfectly for you, part # SR1098. Once the crossbars are installed, you can adjust the bar spread (spacing between the two crossbars) wherever you need to in order to install the roof basket.. As you...
