Very nice cargo basket. The extension kit really makes a difference. It mounted nicely on Subaru factory supply cross bars. Looks great on my Outback. The customer service at etrailer.com is exceptional. These people take pride in what they do. Keep up the good work!! 562020

Ask the Experts about this Kuat Roof Basket

Do you have a question about this Roof Basket?


  • Crossbar Spread on the Kuat MiniSkinny and MiniSkinny Extended Rooftop Baskets
  • The Kuat MiniSkinny, part # MSR1B and the MiniSkinny Extended, part # MSR1B-EXB have different maximum crossbar spreads. The MiniSkinny has a maximum crossbar spread of 35-7/8 inches, and the MiniSkinny Extended has a maximum crossbar spread of 49-7/8 inches. Because we use a standard vehicle for most of our installed photos (as we did in this case) the crossbar spread doesn't actually change because the vehicle's crossbar spread is in the same spot. I've included a photo of both...

  • Roof Rack Ski Carrier for Use with Kuat Mini Skinny Cargo Basket MSR1B
  • The Kuat Mini Skinny Roof Cargo baskets # MSR1B and # MSR1B-EXB (which includes the 14-inch extension piece # MSEXB) are designed to transport bikes as well as normal cargo. These baskets are not designed expressly for use with skis. But depending on the type and length of your skis it could be possible to secure them so that they are safe for transport. You could invert the skis so that their bindings are within the basket and then use tie-down straps like # 34414 to hold them in place. Although...

  • Width Dimensions of Yakima SkinnyWarrior and Kuat Mini Skinny Roof Cargo Baskets
  • Both of the rooftop cargo baskets you mentioned are going to be well over the 16 inches you need, as you can see by the accompanying photo of the measurements I took. The Yakima SkinnyWarrior Roof Rack Cargo Basket # Y07014 (58" long) and # Y07014-16 (74" long) is going to be over 18-1/2" from the outside rail to the clamp while the Kuat Mini Skinny Roof Cargo Basket # MSR1B (60" long) and # MSR1B-EXB (74" long) will have a similar measurement. Since this isn't quite enough room for...

  • Width Measurements of Kuat Mini Skinny Roof Rack Cargo Basket
  • I reached out to Kuat and they told me that the Kuat Mini Skinny Roof Cargo Basket and Bike Carrier # MSR1B measures 5-1/4" from the middle bar to the outer edge of the basket, and measures 12" between the two middle bars. Overall this basket measures 23-7/8" wide. Additionally, this basket weighs a total of 33 lbs. There is also a longer version with an extender, the 74" Kuat Mini Skinny # MSR1B-EXB which has the same measurements but weighs 41 lbs. I have added links to a couple...

  • Carrying a Kayak on Roof Rack with a Kuat Vagabond
  • The Kuat Vagabond X, part # VX201-VX202, isn't actually designed to carry a kayak on top of it so there's certainly no additional equipment needed. Instead of carrying a kayak on the Vagabond X I recommend using the Kuat Mini Skinny, part # MSR1B-EXB, as a basket and bike carrier. Then adding an actual kayak carrier like the Yakima JayLow, part # Y04073, to carry the kayak. The JayLow includes the tie-downs needed.

  • Can Detail K2 Flip Rack Fold Down Ladder Rack Work with Tonneau Cover on Chevy Colorado
  • Technically you could remove the clamps and bolt the Detail K2 Flip Down Ladder Rack # K2TFR150 to the side walls of your truck bed if you were willing to make the modification to the rack and your truck. This would make it compatible with a tonneau cover that mounts inside the bed rails like BAKFlip G2 Hard Tonneau Cover # BAK26126. Keep in mind, this will void the warranty of the rack and the capacity may be unknown at that point just because it hasn't been tested that way. Because...
