Video Transcript for Surco Safari Rack 5.0 Rooftop Cargo Basket Review

Today, we're going to be reviewing the Surco Safari Rack 5.0 Rooftop Cargo Baskets. These come in a variety of different sizes ranging anywhere from 45 inches wide to 65 inches wide and 50 inches long to 100 inches long. Today, the specific one we're going to be working with is part number SPS4560, it's a 60-inch by 45-inch basket. Now to see the variety of sizes, you can check out our website at The Surco Safari 5.0 Rooftop Cargo Basket is going to be a great addition to have. It's going to allow you to free up room from inside your vehicle making more room for passengers or pets. It can also take care of hauling some of that nasty or dirty gear that you may have whether it's wet or muddy, it's going to keep it out of your vehicle and now it's on top of your roof. The Surco line of Rooftop Cargo Baskets are going to offer a weight capacity of 250 pounds.

It's got a really nice floor design with the panels and the crossbars which is going to support whatever it is that you have to load in here. This is going to be made from a lightweight aluminum construction, but yet it's very strong and very durable. It's going to feature 3/4 inch square tubing, also making it very easy to get a tie down strap, bungee cord, or a ratchet strap with a hook around the outer wall. This basket features a durable black powder coat finish to help it stand up well against rust and corrosion. Now that we've gone over a few features, we're going to go ahead and show you how to install the Surco Safari Basket onto our roof rack. This rooftop basket is available in a variety of fits for your roof rack system, it's going to fit a square bar system which is what we are working with today.

It will fit a round bar system and a factory roof rack system. Now, we've already got the basket positioned the way that we want on our roof rack system. The kit's going to include these baskets that fit over the side rail here on the basket. We simply need to line those up with our roof rack crossbars. It's going to come with these U-bolts that go around the underside of the bars and then we simply tighten those on by installing the included nuts. Now the hardware is going to be supplied with the kit. The baskets can be purchased with just the baskets and no kit, or they can be kitted together to include the fit kit.

Once we have these loosely installed, we can go ahead and tighten them down. We are going to be using a socket wrench with a long socket on it today and the size is going to 7/16 of an inch. Now, I always like to make sure that it's tightened down evenly on both sides. All right, with this bracket tight, we'll repeat that same process for the other three. Surco offers some additional accessories that are going to be sold separately, but the accessories include a light mounting bracket, part number SPLT100; spare tire carrier, part number SPST100; a hi-lift jack carrier, part number SP1108; and an axe and shovel carrier, part number SPAX100. That's going to complete today's review of the Surco Safari Rack 5.0 Rooftop Cargo Baskets.

I've had this rack on my 1995 Grand Cherokee and it's still great. Paint has finally started peeling but count the years to 2018 and it's been at 6000 feet in sun all that time! These roof racks by Surco are the impossible combination; light and sturdy. This longer version is going on my 4x4 full size expedition Van. The box arrived quickly, and it's a precision fit together. However, like all roof rack baskets, they show a set of floor slats that are not part of the kit and no disclaimer about it. Just because the others are doing that sort of misleading marketing doesn't mean they have to. I would like more floor options, like a chain link fence which could be rolled for easy shipping or expanded metal. I would also like color options, I need this one in white, so I'll have to paint it. etrailer got right on this order and it arrived earlier than I expected. 527252

Do you have a question about this Roof Basket?

  • Roof Mounted Cargo Basket for Leer Camper Shell with Thule Crossbars
  • The Surco Safari Rack you mentioned, part # SPS5084-T400 requires crossbars as a connection point, it will not attach directly to the tracks. The basket is compatible with Thule crossbars. The # SPS5084-T400 you referenced is 84 inches, or 7 feet long. Surco also offers a 5 foot long model, part # SPS5060-T400. The Extended Thule Canyon XT, part # TH859XT-8591XT is about 5-3/4 feet long, but at 40 inches wide it is not as wide as the Surco models mentioned above. It is also compatible...

  • Largest Roof Rack and Cargo Basket for a 2010 Ford E350
  • For a roof rack I would recommend the Thule rack that consists of the following parts: Thule Square Load Bars # THLB65 Thule Gutter Feet # TH387 The largest cargo basket that we have that would fit would be the Surco cargo basket part # SPS5084-T400.

  • How to Install Surco Safari Rack 5.0 Rooftop Cargo Basket on 2003 Land Rover Range Rover
  • The Surco Safari Rack 5.0 Rooftop Cargo Basket # SPS5084-T400 referenced in your question is designed to mount to aftermarket Thule Roof Racks. For a Thule Roof Rack that is confirmed to fit your 2003 Land Rover Range Rover, I recommend the Thule Traverse Square Bar Roof Rack. This system consists of # THLB58 for the 58 inch Square Load Bars, # TH480 for the Traverse Foot Pack, and # THKIT1274 for the Fit Kit. Once installed, this will give you a sturdy roof rack system with a weight...

  • How Does Surco Safari Rooftop Cargo Basket # SPS5084-T400 Mount to Thule Square Crossbars
  • The Surco Safari Rooftop Cargo Basket for Thule roof rack crossbars, part # SPS5084-T400, will mount to Thule square crossbars using included hardware. This lightweight aluminum basket comes with adapters that clamp around the roof rack crossbars; you do not need to purchase this separately. Note that the capacity of this basket to carry cargo is limited by the vehicle roof weight limit.

  • Roof Rack and Largest Cargo Basket Recommendation for a 1995 Land Rover Range Rover Classic
  • First you will want to start with a roof rack on your 1995 Land Rover Range Rover Classic. For that you will want the Yakima roof rack that consists of the Round 66" CrossBars # Y00410 and the Yakima 1A Raingutter Towers # Y00101. The absolute biggest roof rack cargo basket that would fit this roof rack would be the Surco Safari Rack 5.0 Rooftop Cargo Basket # SPS5084-Y400.

  • Surco Safari Roof Cargo Basket Recommendation for a 2013 Chevy Suburban
  • To install the Surco Safari Rack 5.0 Rooftop Cargo Basket # SPS5084-T400 on your 2013 Chevy Suburban (or any vehicle for that matter), you will need to first have a Thule square bar roof rack installed on the vehicle. So for that you would need the part # TH45058 to install this rack on your Suburban. Or if you wanted a version of this cargo basket that could attach directly to the side rails of your vehicle you would want the # SPS5084-1101.

  • Roof Cargo Basket Recommendation for a 2007 Chevy Suburban
  • I checked with Surco and they list Safari Rack # SPS5084-1101 as the proper fit for your 2007 Chevy Suburban. This version comes with adapters to attach the basket to the factory side rails on your Suburban. Side rails run front to back. The basket does not attach to crossbars that run side to side. As for the different sizes available with the correct adapters the 50 inch width will be needed for a proper fit but there is # SPS5060-1101 at 60 inches long. Another option for most...

  • Could the Surco Safari Rack 5.0 Rooftop Cargo Basket Carry Hay Bales
  • As long as the roof of your vehicle has the capacity for the 4-5 bales of hay you would be good. You will want to check the owners manual of your vehicle to determine the roof capacity and then figure out how much your hay bales weigh. This rack is designed to be installed on a Thule roof rack. In my experience I've seen square bales weight from 35-70 lbs. For some ratchet straps to secure the hay you might also be interested in the Erickson Ratchet Straps part # 58503.

  • Surco Rooftop Cargo Basket for Thule Roof Racks on Honda Fit
  • The Surco Safari Rack 5.0 Rooftop Cargo Basket for Thule Roof Racks, # SPS5084-T400, will work with all Thule roof racks including racks compatible with your Honda Fit. The only problem you may encounter is in the access of your rear hatch due to the overhang. I would recommend a smaller roof rack if it weren't dependent on your painting size. This rack will fit your paintings even two of them stacked within the 5" depth of the carrier, but they will be exposed to wind and weather without...

  • Recommended Roof Rack And Cargo Basket For 2010 Ford E-350
  • The roof rack I recommend that will work with your 2012 E-350 is the Thule roof rack. To order this roof rack you will need part # THLB65, and part # TH387. I also recommend the Surco Cargo Basket, part # SPS5084-T400. This is our largest basket and it measures 84-inches long and 50-inches wide and is designed to fit the Thule crossbars. The Surco basket does not come with an extension.
