Review from a similar Mini Skinny in Roof Basket


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

  • Best Weatherproof Cargo Bag for Kuat Skinny Roof Cargo Basket
    The best cargo bag for the Kuat Mini Skinny Roof Cargo Basket and Bike Carrier # MSR1B is the Rhino-Rack Rooftop Cargo Bag # RRLB200 because it is a waterproof bag that will fit nicely in the Kuat basket. The inside (usable cargo space) of the Mini Skinny measures 52" long x 20-1/4" wide x 5-1/4" deep while the Rhino-Rack Cargo Bag is 55" long x 19-1/2" wide x 11-1/2" tall. Since the bag is a few inches longer it will hang over the front of the basket where the fairing is ever so slightly,...

  • 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...

  • Comparing the Kuat Mini Skinny Cargo Basket & Yakimi SkinnyWarrior
    There are some subtle differences between the Kuat Mini Skinny # MSR1B and the Yakima SkinnyWarrior # Y07014 aside from the Kuat being 1" wider and 2" longer. First, the Yakima SkinnyWarrior weighs about 10-lbs less. Not only will this be easier to get up and down off the vehicle when not in use, it's going to give you a bit more capacity on on your roof in terms of weight you can add to the basket. As you've also noticed, the Kuat has a fork mount bike carrier built in (Requires that your...

  • Adapting the Kuat Mini Skinny's Bike Block to a non-9mm Fork
    I contacted Kuat directly, and the Kuat MiniSkinny, part # MSR1B and they let me know that there are several manufacturers that can replace the block that comes with the Kuat Mini Skinny. You can use any fork adapter with between 3.75 and 4.5 inch span between its arches to adapt another fork size to the basket. Because axle types vary between bike companies and setups, let me know what kind you have and I can recommend a correct fit for your bike's axle.

  • Diameter of Tube on Outside of Kuat Mini Skinny Roof Basket
    I spoke with my contact at Kuat and he informed me that the diameter of the tubes that run around the outside of the Kuat Mini Skinny Roof Cargo Basket # MSR1B are 1-1/2 inch in diameter.

  • 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...

  • Could Kuat Mini Skinny Roof Cargo Basket Fit Subaru Factory Aero Crossbars
    The Kuat Skinny Cargo Basket part # MSR1B that you referenced is a direct fit for the factory crossbars of your Subaru as this basket is very flexible with what it can fit. The bars would have to be less than 4-1/2 inches wide and 1-3/4 inches tall and be spaced between 14-5/8 and 35-7/8 inches apart. It also comes with everything you'd need to attach a bike with a 9 mm quick release style skewer. Check out the review video I attached for more info on this carrier as well.

  • 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...

  • Roof Cargo Basket Compatible with 9-mm Fork to Carry Bike
    I believe what you are looking for is something like the Kuat Vagabond X # VX201 or Mini Skinny # MSR1B which come with 9-mm skewers already installed (see attached photo) since the Rhino-Rack XTray # RRRMCB03 requires a thru axle plus an adapter sleeve # RRRBCA039. If your front wheel isn't easily removable then a better solution is to use the Yakima LoadWarrior # Y07070-74 with a wheel mount bike rack like the FrontLoader # Y02103.

  • Roof Cargo Basket that Can Fit 9 mm Quick Release Bike Skewer Axles
    I believe what you are looking for is something like the Kuat Vagabond X # VX201 or Mini Skinny # MSR1B which come with 9-mm skewers already installed (see attached photo) since the Rhino-Rack XTray # RRRMCB03 requires a thru axle plus an adapter sleeve like # RRRBCA039. There isn't a way to use a quick release style of skewer with this basket.

  • Cargo Net for Kuat Mini Skinny Cargo Basket # MSR1B
    For the Kuat Mini Skinny, # MSR1B, SportRack cargo net # SR0035 is a great choice. I for one think it is the best option for a basket this size.
    view full answer...
  • Fitting SportRack Cargo Net on the Kuat Mini Skinny Roof Top Cargo Basket
    The hooks on the SportRack cargo net, part # SR0035, definitely will not fit over the large outside bars of the Kuat Mini Skinny, part # MSR1B. Instead just hook it to the smaller bars that run across the basket and it'll fit just fine.

  • 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 Cargo Basket and 2 Kayak Carrier to Fit 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon
    For a roof mounted kayak carrier great for carrying 1 or 2 kayaks we have the Thule Hull-a-port part # TH848 which is a J-style kayak that can be locked vertical to allow two to fit as well. Check out the attached review video for more info. When carrying the second kayak you'd need a second set of straps. So for that you'd want to use the Thule kit part # TH521 and the part # Y04031 and you'd be set. To fit a basket with the two kayaks you'd most likely need a skinnier basket like the...

  • 2019 Subaru Forester - Stock Raised Rails, No Crossbars.
    I double checked with Yakima just now and the JetStream roof rack you want that consists of part numbers # Y00425 and # Y00147 is a fit for the factory raised side rails of your 2019 Subaru Forester so it will work great for you. To add locks to this to prevent theft will require the part # Y07202. This basically locks the rubber coated steel straps of the rack to the side rails. I attached a review video for this for you to check out as well. The 24 inch wide Kuat Mini Skinny Cargo...

  • Locking Roof Mount Cargo Basket that Can Also Hold a Bike Rack
    The RockyMounts cargo basket # RKY1054 does not have a locking feature so you would have to use a cable lock such as # e98891 to lock it and any cargo to the rest of the roof rack on your 2009 Jeep Patriot. This basket does not have a way to attach a bike rack to it but I do have a basket that will work for you; the Kuat Mini Skinny # MSR1B. I have linked a video review for you.

  • Thule Wingbar Evo Roof Rack Compatibility on 2013 Subaru Outback with Factory Side Rails
    For your 2013 Subaru Outback with factory side rails, the Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars - Aluminum - Black - 47" Long # TH711200 and Evo Raised Rail Feet # TH710401 will be compatible. This will give you a really nice system and I recommend securing it to your vehicle using the Thule One-Key System Lock Cylinders - Qty 4 # TH450400.
