Rola Roof Mounted Cargo Basket Extension - 59505

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (46 Customer Reviews)

This add-on piece extends the length of your Rola Vortex Carrier by 18-3/4". Black powder coated steel is durable and corrosion resistant.


I recently installed a Rola basket, with the extension, on my XC Volvo. Simple installation took less than twenty minutes without tools. Very sturdy. Low profile. Very low noise even at relatively high speeds. Reminds me of the old ladder rack Volvo used to sell through it's plant in Sweden. I can pile anything in, bikes, skis, luggage, and not worry about scratching the roof of the vehicle. The decals are crooked/not centered. The male and female parts on one side of the extension do not fit flush, but just barely. Don't know/think that will depreciate ability to manage payloads. While shopping for a basket, I could find no photos of a Rola on a XC Volvo, and was pleasantly surprised by what is virtually a glove fit. Well done, Rola. I strongly recommend this basket.


I purchased the Rola Roof Mounted Cargo Basket and Extension based on suggestions from etrailer. The Rack is for a 2015 Subaru Outback, it was easy to assemble and install on the vehicle. Since purchasing about a year ago, my family and I have loaded this thing up. Using it for about six camping trips a season and the annual cross country ski/snowboard trip. I highly recommend this equipment.


Got the Rola Rack & Extension Was delivered only in 4 days,
and i just installed my rack which i purchased on etrailer Im very satisfied with the rack beside the little minors like the extension were you connect them w/c has a little gap and also little bubbles with the powder coat finish...

Other than that unit fits my 2007 Chevy Tahoe Truck just right and Im happy with this product,just like the massive material used and design is just right ...
together with couple of more inches long with the ext..

next upgrade (lift kit & wheels)


Junk. Started rusting on day 1. If this is “powder coat”, it must be baby powder or something. Was missing the rubber sleeves that cover the joints and it was like pulling teeth to get them from the manufacturer. I’m pretty disappointed overall with the product and Rola. etrailer however is great to deal with.


The extension I would highly recommend if you're roof is big enough. I put it on my 1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee and when you put the extension on, It fits perfectly on top of the roof! Very sturdy and beefy frame and Looks great!


This rack is the best! I got 1 on my '15 Tacoma.
I just got another one for my '07 4runner with 59505 extension and I relly happy,it fits so perfect! If you need more cargo space,give your suv a nice look and increase your cargo room,
This fits all ! Rola Rocks ????


The exstention was a must buy when buying the rack. The exstention add that extra foot or so and made the rack fit the body of my Tahoe better.the only complaint is the rubber sleeves, not easy to work on.


When I got this rack I have also ordered the extension to make it longer. I saw based on reviews people complained about water getting inside the tubes and causing rust water so in advance to keep this from happening I went and bought marine boat silicone and I pasted up all the connections and all the screws it was quite messy at first but smoothed it all out as much as I could ended up the best thing I did to it. Survived the winter and endless storms and never had any rust water spill on my suv. In face the sealant job was done so well it's still there. I Also added lock nut washers on top of the mounting twist handles so I could ensure that it would not come loose. I have hualed endless things on it and was superhandful many times. One thing I do like is that it has a good dept around it so if u wanted u could just drop cooler on it or boxes and have that extra safe keeping knowing it won't roll over tip out. I keep a set of tie down straps in my suv for whenever I needed it. Great product didn't have to spend thousands on the so called better brands.


El producto es de exelente calidad y muy facil de instalar, me tarde aproccimadamente 20 minutos en armar e intalar la parrilla en mi trailblazer 2002, recomiendo el producto al 100% ...Saludos


It worked perfectly on 2015 Honda Pilot. I have nothing but praise for this product. It’s still on my SUV and looks great.
Thank you!


E-trailer made this order simple and easy. The Rola extension I ordered was delivered on time and the whole process working with the e-trailer rep was even smoother. I recieved the order just on time, place the roof rack and extension on my 2001 Jeep Cherokee Sport and headed for a Colorado ski trip. I would recommend e-trailer and the extension for the rola roof rack to anyone that has cargo to carry. Thanks again.


Its perfect, get it! It extends your roof rack just enough to feel like you have plenty of space for everything you need... I got the Curt Cargo Net to hold everything down and etrailer wasted no time getting my order to me, I had my order in about 4 days! Do It!


Sales and service excellent. Fast shipping. This is my second Rola Roof Rack from and they have been quality products. The rack is easy to assemble and looks good on my Jeep Cherokee. Although my first Rola is 5 years old and has a few signs of rust where it is put together, the new rack has rubber sleeves to install that will hopefully eliminate that issue. Very satisfied with purchase.


Bought the Rola cargo basket and extension. Saw that the price dropped a week later, so I called up and etrailer gave me the discounted price!!! Great company!


Great customer service, actually talked to a live person, Nicole T. , thank you. One of the products that I had order, did not get processed or shipped for whatever reason. When I contacted etrailer over the phone I talked to Nicole, very pleasant and helpful. She did some research on my order, had me take a picture of the products I did receive then I just emailed the pictures directly to her email, and Nicole got back to me thru email and the missing item was processed and shipped out with no further problems. I will definitely go to etrailer for future purchases. Thank You All


I ordered two of these in order to create a much longer roof rack for my 2103 Sequoia. It has been attached to the roof of my truck for the past year. It has been across the country and back four times during this time period. And it has survived the worst winter our Montana region has seen in years. It's a great value for the money; no squeaking, no signs of rust, still solid. Highly recommended.


Great product I'm going to order a ladder rack next.


Well built, sturdy, easy to assemble and looks really good. As you can see from the photos I purchased the extension and glad I did. I have to give it a 5 star rating because everything was as advertised
and shipped promptly.


Worked out good. Should have come with more rubber sleeves to seal the joints to keep moisture from entering the tubes.


WOW!!! This is a great product. I will be back again.
This was a high quality product!
If your thinking about getting the ROLA roof carrier get it.


PerfictWould definatly get this with the rola rack if you have enough room on top.



Perfect for my 2013 Toyota Sequoia.

Patrick B.


Glad to hear it worked well for you. If you have any questions or need anything else, please get in touch.


Great product I am really satisfied with it. It made my cargo basket larger and fits perfectly my 4runner.


Looks great on my Ford Expedition. Very well made and easy to install.



Would have liked to have more rubber to cover connections. Otherwise, great product!


The product was shipped promptly, good documentation was provided, it was delivered on time, and was exactly what I wanted and it is
what I wanted it to loo like. I will suggest ETrailer to my friends


My basket extension aligned perfectly. Even the screw holes were right on the money.

Quick shipping/delivery from etrailer A+++++

  • Rola Roof Cargo Basket Overhangs Crossbar on 2013 Honda Pilot
    Ideally you would want a wider crossbar spread to support the weight more evenly when using a cargo basket. As long as the bulk of the weight is more centered, the overhang should not be a problem. Make sure though that the weight in the basket is within the rack and roof capacities, which ever is lower. The vehicle roof rack and roof capacities may be in the owners manual or could be obtained by contacting Honda.

    I went out to the warehouse and pulled a Rola cargo basket extension # 59505 to take some measurements. The overall length is 22-3/4 inches but the useable length, once installed, will 18-3/4 inches. Overall width is 40-11/16 inches.

The small bars are 0.636 inches in diameter. The medium...

  • Fit of Erickson # EM59505 on Bumper of 1995 Jeep Wrangler With Out Drilling
    The Erickson Bolt-On Tow Hook you mentioned, part # EM59505 is a universal, not a vehicle specific application. The hook would mount using 1/2 inch holes spaced 1-3/8 inches apart on center. If your bumper on your 1995 YJ has holes that match, you would be able to mount the hook without drilling. We do offer some vehicle specific tow hooks, but nothing specific for the 1995 YJ.

  • Can 2 Extensions be Added to the Rola Roof Mount Cargo Basket for a 2003 Chevy Suburban
    You should not have any problem installing a second extension for your Rola roof mount cargo basket. The two extensions will fit together and basically leave you with one big extension that mounts the same way (the tapered bars on each side fitting into the large tubes of the main basket). Given that this is going to increase the length of the basket to about 90 inches overall, I strongly recommend adding a third roof rack bar for middle support under the basket. With 2 extensions you...

  • Will the EM59505 Tow Hook Fit the 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    The Erickson Bolt-On Tow Hook is not a custom fit item and can be mounted to any surface that will handle the loads required of the tow hook. The normal mounting location is to the frame. The 1/2 inch mounting holes are 1-3/8 inches on center so you can measure to see if you have pre-drilled locations on your Jeep to install the hooks. If not you can drill holes to mount the hooks at any location you like.

    The Erickson Recovery Strap w/ Reinforced Loop Ends # EM59500 referenced in your question is an extremely durable recovery strap with a maximum vehicle weight capacity of 9,000 pounds and a maximum load (break strength) of 18,000 pounds. It works very well with a hook like the Erickson Bolt-On Tow Hook with Keeper # EM59505. This bolt on hook can be used for a variety of industrial or recreational purposes and has a weight capacity of 10,000 pounds. I have attached a couple short video...

  • Is There Way To Lock Rola Roof Basket # 59504 To Chevrolet Suburban
    There is a way to lock the Rola Roof Mounted Cargo Basket, part 59504 (DISCONTINUED), to your Chevrolet Suburban, but part 59504 does not have integrated locks. What you can do is use Thule # TH538XT cable lock to lock the Rola Roof Rack to your Suburban to prevent theft. To do this you would just run the lock through the Rola Roof Rack and the cross bars on your Chevrolet Suburban. Rola does not offer any locking mechanisms at this time to prevent the basket from being stolen. Our representative...

  • Recommended Electric Winch To Pull 4,000-Lb Boat Into Garage.
    The electric winch I recommend is the Dutton-Lainson StrongArm # DL25046. This winch has a 2,700-lb straight line pull capacity and is you use the included pulley the double line pull increases to 4,000-lbs. I have attached a drawing that shows how a double line with the pulley is done. As far as attaching the winch to the garage floor, you will want to make sure it is as secure as possible so that it will not come loose when using it.

  • Roof Cargo Basket Recommendation For 2013 Toyota 4Runner
    The Thule Roof Cargo Carrier, part # TH859XT requires a specific crossbar spread on the vehicle for installation. The # TH859XT will fit crossbars that have a center to center spread of 20 inches - 37 inches. Measure your crossbars center-center and see if they will work. Adding the Thule Roof Mounted Cargo Basket Extension, part # TH8591XT will add an additional 20 inches to the basket. If you find the # TH859XT will not fit your crossbars I have attached a link to our product page...

    The Erickson Bolt-On Tow Hook - Black - 10,000 lbs, item # EM59505, has the same mounting dimensions as the chrome bolt on tow hook, item # EM59503, which I recently measured. The mounting holes are spaced 1-3/8 inches apart on center. I took a photo of the tow hook and added the measurement for you to see. You will have to measure the spot on your frame that you intend to mount the tow hooks and see if there are existing holes or if there is enough room to drill 1/2 inch holes. You may...

  • Erickson Recovery Tow Strap # EM59801 Recommendation for Towing a Silverado 2500 Diesel
    The strongest recovery strap is our Erickson Recovery Tow Strap # EM59801. This strap has a break strength of 35,000 lbs and can be used on vehicles that weigh up 17,500 lbs. I would recommend you put two Erickson Bolt-On Tow Hook with Keeper # EM59505 on the front of your 2500 Silverado and then run one end of the # TR63046 through the loop on the other end of the strap so that you have a slip knot that you could put around both of the tow hooks to spread the weight of towing your vehicle...

  • Recommended Winch to Load 4,000 lb Tractor onto Flat Bed Trailer
    The Superwinch # 1120210 LT2000 you referenced would be perfect for your needs. According to my calculations, the ramps you are using have a bit more than a 40 percent grade. According to the table shown in the FAQ article I have linked you to, the Superwinch # 1120210 you referenced is capable of pulling about 4300 lbs of rolling load like your tractor up a 40 degree ramp. Since you are pretty close to the max capacity of the winch, I would recommend mounting your winch to the trailer...

  • Can Two Extensions Be Used With Rola Roof Mounted Cargo Basket On 1999 GMC Suburban With 4 Crossbars
    The Rola Roof Mounted Cargo Basket, part # 59504 may be a good fit for your 1999 GMC Suburban. It measures 52 inches long x 40-1/2 inches wide x 6 inches deep, and has a weight capacity of 130 lbs. The maximum crossbar dimension that this basket can fit is 1-1/4 inch tall X 3-1/4 inches wide. You should be able to use two of the extensions, part # 59505 with your four crossbars. Each of the extensions adds an additional 18-3/4 inches to the basket.

  • Will the Thule Cargo Basket Fit a 2009 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab with Factory Roof Rack
    To determine the fit of the Thule cargo basket # TH859XT you will need to measure the crossbars on your 2009 Toyota Tacoma double cab. This basket fits bar spreads of 20" - 37 inches. Adding the extension # TH8591XT would not change this required crossbar spread range.

    To get tow hooks installed on your 2019 GMC Savana Van you're going to have to have a shop fabricate something for you as there aren't any custom-fit options made for your vehicle. You could potentially install the Curt Adjustable Trailer Hitch Receiver # C13701 with the Erickson Tow Hook # EM57500 or use tow hooks like the Erickson Bolt-On Tow Hook with Keeper # EM59505 to accomplish this, but you'll need the shop to look at the parts and plan out the installation with you to make sure...

  • Best Inexpensive Roof Cargo Basket with Extension for a 2010 Subaru Outback
    Too long or not is a matter of opinion! Provided the Thule basket, # TH859XT, fits now, it will still mount to your 2010 Subaru Outback using extension # TH8591XT. The extension adds 20 inches total to the length of the basket making it 69 inches long but it does not change the installation process at all. You could change the arrangement of the feet to make the basket more forward or rearward on the crossbars if needed. Compare the overall length to the roof length to determine if the...

  • Would the Thule Roof Cargo Basket Extender make the Basket too Long for a Ford Explorer
    The overall length of the Thule Roof Mounted Cargo Basket, part # TH859XT, is 49 inches long. The extender, part # TH8591XT, adds 20 inches. This would bring the overall length of the rack to just 69 inches. I would take a tape measure length of the roof on your Explorer. You would then be able to see how the rack would fit on your roof. The rack attaches to the bars and the crossbars must be between 20 inches and 37 inches so the crossbars must be in that range of distance apart.

  • Pulley Block for Hauling Disabled Vehicles off Car Hauler
    It sounds like you're looking for a pulley block like part # BDW20004. I would think some sort of D-ring tied into the frame of the trailer would provide a good mount for the pulley block. I looked through our selection of D-rings, and the highest capacity we offer is the # RR5K. You'd want something with sufficient capacity to handle the largest vehicle you expect to have to haul off. Since you're dealing with a rolling load, 5K should be plenty but I would be sure that the ring is tied...

  • Recommended Cargo Net and Portable Step for Use with Rola Roof Mounted Cargo Basket
    Nets for cargo baskets such as the popular Rola basket that is 52-inch long x 40-1/2-inch are available in many sizes. Even though many rooftop cargo baskets share a fairly similar overall size, depending on the specific cargo items you have loaded you could potentially be happier using one net than another. Let's say you had some fairly tall cartons - let's say 18-inch tall - placed in the basket. For this specific cargo you might be better off with a larger size of net than if you were...
