After a very thorough search for a cargo basket I settled on the RockyMounts. I also considered the Kuat, Thule and Yakima baskets. It is well made, has a lifetime guarantee, is cheaper (and larger) than its direct competitors, and they even throw in a cargo net to hold your gear as part of the package! This fits the entire roof of my 07 Subaru Impreza wagon with factory crossbars perfectly and does NOT interfere with the back hatch opening. Bonus, I called the folks at Rocky Mounts for installation guidance and talked to a person immediately.... NO holding or autobot voice prompts. Absurdly easy to install, took maybe 30 minutes for assembly and install. I just used a spare bicycle ulock to secure it to the siderails bc it would take less than 10 minutes of wingnut spinning to abscond with it. The folks at etrailer were superb, too. Can't beat free shipping and a discounted price. REI and the like all charge oversize shipping fees for this kind of item. 243130

This rack has been perfect for our needs. Very easy to attach and remove. I was looking for a specific size and this was the best fit. So glad we have this rack. A few points that could improve: 1. Had to do some maneuvering to assemble as the poles didn't line up exactly. Took a lot of strength to make them squeeze. However, once assembled, no issues. 2. When attached to the vehicle the U-bolt that connect to the roof rack to the cross bars protrude up into basket. (This would vary depending on the size of cross bar.) We have a Subaru Outback. I use heavy styrofoam padding to cover the bolts to avoid poking in to anything stored in the basket. 3. In the past year, we have been thru several terrains and weather conditions. I am slightly disappointed that the basket has developed rust at the connection joints. Overall very happy with size, weight, function, and ease of use. 315473

The rack is everything I needed. I will write a proper review for your company this evening. 610365

great product, easy to install, took less than 1 1/2 hours, Pricing was exemplary, am converting my 2000 Cherokee to my pop up trailer towing vehicle and in the future etrailer will be my first choice. Looked at numerous options and finally decided on this one, LOOKS GREAT! Great experience throughout! Keep up the good work in all aspects ETRAILER! 588119

I like this roof mounted basket because of its good looks, competitive price and larger size, compared to the Thule and Yakima models in this price range. The only issue I have with it is the mounting hardware. The U-bolts protruded above the plastic wing nuts where they could cause damage to cargo. In addition, the wing nuts are tall, protruding above the bottom of the basket, where they also could cause cargo damage. The solution to this is to shorten the U-bolts and use a flat washer and nylon locking hex nut in place of each wing nut. These do not protrude above the surface of the basket, eliminating potential cargo damage. 564408


The u-bolts protrude into the basket because the attachment hardware is designed to accommodate crossbars of different thicknesses. If the crossbars on the vehicle are thinner than whats typically found, the ends of the u-bolt can extend into the basket.

Rockymounts roof basket arrived in a 3 days and was in good condition. The basket went together easily and is substantial when assembled. I was concerned about the fit of the basket on the Buick Envision since the cross roof rails are a fixed distance and bowed. It fit OK, except due to the bow in the cross rails the plastic saddles had to be mounted adjacent to the longitudinal rails on the basket which place the brackets more to the center than I would like. In this position I had to put 1/4 in hard rubber shims on the saddles to provide clearance between the longitudinal basket rails and the cross roof rails. It works, but it would be a stronger mount if the saddles could be placed more to the edge of the cross rails - need deeper plastic saddles. The other problem, which other reviewers have noted, is that the wing nuts extend 1 in above the bottom of the basket causing interference problems with the load. We intend to use this basket to increase our travel capacity on our annual two month trip from MI to FL. 558630

A couple things: Price was super! Customer service checked in a couple times to make sure I got the rack! Delivery was super fast! And all in all, the rack itself seems really great. Well built, easy to put together (from unboxing to installed it took maybe 30 mins? I took my time). I think it’ll last but time will tell. Not sure exactly what I’ll use it for besides odds and ends for camping or some back roads (attached to a Subaru Crosstrek) but it looks great! I highly recommend it and Etrailer was great too! 518654

Ive owned this for about a year now and everyday use and its still holding up good. 455702

- RKY1054

Good price and quality compared to others on the market. I used silicone caulk while assembling the two halves of the basket. Believe it will make it more stable and keep rust from starting in the joints. One thing I don't like is the unusable space at the front and the rear, because of the basket being tilted inward there (helps with aerodynamics at the front, but not at the rear). So even though it's 53" long, the usable space inside is only about 43" long. 430865

No need to pile on what we already know. is always at the top of there game when it comes to customer service. I have been buying from them for a very long time now and they never disappoint. As for my RockyMounts basket it seems to be sturdy and looks great. (I do not have a car to put it on yet but they had a discount that I could not pass up) I have 5 or 6 other RockyMounts products and for the price they cannot be beat. 358013

Do you have a question about this Roof Basket?

  • Roof Basket Recommendation for Rhino Rack Roof Rack on 2015 Toyota Tundra With CrewMax Cab
  • The Rhino Rack roof rack is an excellent choice for your 2015 Toyota Tundra with CrewMax cab, but its crossbars will need to be spaced at 31-1/2 inches according to Rhino Rack. This rack, which consists of Crossbars # RRVA150B-2, Legs # RRRLKVA and Fit Kit # DK079, needs that spacing in order to maintain the weight capacity as well as maintain the warranty because it needs to install according to Rhino Rack's instructions. What that means is that the Rola Roof Basket # 59504, which,...

  • Recommended Roof Rack and Cargo Basket to Fit a 2005 Honda Pilot with Raised Rails
  • What you have right now on your 2005 Honda Pilot's roof are raised side rails. You need to add crossbars for a complete roof rack. I recommend the Malone AirFlow2 racks. You can use either the 58 inch bars, part # MPG216 or the 65 inch bars, part # MPG217. Then for a roof basket I like the RockyMounts 14'er, part # RKY1054, because it includes a fairing and a cargo net. I've linked videos of both the rack and basket for you to take a look at as well.

  • Roof Cargo Basket to Fit Factory Crossbar Spread of 35-1/2 Inches
  • Rola's Steel Roof Cargo Basket # 59504 does require that the crossbars it mounts on have one of four specific center-to-center bar spacing distances. But their larger 73 x 40-inch version # 59504-EXT which includes an extension with spacer blocks will work fine on your bar spread of 35-1/2-inches. This basket version fits bar spreads from 26-1/4 to 37-1/2-inches. The extender also give you a higher cargo weight capacity of 180-lbs. If you don't need a basket this large other options...

  • Can Thule Interstate Rooftop Cargo Bag be Used on Panoramic Sun Roof
  • Even with the Malone AirFlow2 Roof Rack # MPG215 on your 2019 Jeep Cherokee you do need to use a basket with the Thule Interstate Rooftop Cargo Bag # TH869 because otherwise part of the bag would rest on the panoramic sunroof and that would be dangerous. I recommend going with the RockyMounts 14'er Roof Mounted Cargo Basket # RKY1054 because it has the necessary space to fit the cargo bag and will fit your Malone roof rack. I'm sure you already know this but I did want to mention...

  • Will RockyMounts 14er Roof Mounted Cargo Basket Work on 2018 Toyota RAV4
  • The RockyMounts 14'er Roof Mounted Cargo Basket # RKY1054 referenced in your question is designed to fit round, square, aero/elliptical and most factory crossbars. To make sure the cargo basket will fit the roof rack crossbars on your 2018 RAV4, you will just want to take a couple measurements on the crossbars themselves. This cargo basket will work with crossbars that are up to 4-3/4 inches wide and 1-3/4 inches tall. There also needs to be a crossbar spread (distance from one crossbar...

  • Rooftop Cargo Carrier Solution for 2017 Subaru Outback
  • For a cross country trip the Rocky Mounts part # RKY1054 would be a good option that would give you a platform for your cargo to mount, but since you'd be driving through inclement weather at some point a better option would be a cargo box that will protect the cargo. We have the Thule Force XL part # TH6358B which is a fit for your crossbars that has the ability to hold up to 17 cubic feet.

  • 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 # CAB-10 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.

  • Will The Yakima Slim Shady fit on RockyMounts 14er Cargo Basket?
  • The Yakima Slim Shady awning part # Y07409 is designed to attach to the accessory bar of the Yakima Load Warrior. Since the Rocky Mounts 14er basket part # RKY1054 is not built with a vertical accessory bar option the awning cannot properly attach to the basket. It needs two vertical attachment points. The Loadwarrior part # Y07070-74 or part # Y07080-82 allows you to attach the Slim Shady awning because they have the extra load bar to adjust for the minimum crossbar spread of 24 inches.

  • Recommended Rooftop Cargo Basket for 2012 Subaru Outback Wagon with Factory Crossbars
  • Rooftop cargo carriers like metal baskets and ABS plastic cargo boxes each offer certain advantages. The better option for any given user mostly depends on the nature of the cargo. If you have items that need maximum protection then an enclosed cargo box may be the right choice. But if you do not need that protection and you want the lowest-cost option then a roof basket can be the better choice. You can check out the linked article for more thoughts on this.

The bar spread, center to center distance between the bars, is 28 inches for the Thule AeroBlade system on your 2009 Subaru Forester with naked roof. The RockyMounts basket # RKY1054 will fit because the hardware will fit bars up to 4-3/4 inches wide which will compensate for the fact that fits a minimum spread of 27-1/2...

If you do not already have a roof rack on your Jeep, then I recommend the Thule roof rack, which consists of the 60 inch SquareBars, # TH712500, and the Rapid Gutter Feet, # TH300R.

I didn't fully assemble the basket but I'm guessing the 6 inch measurement we list is from the highest point to the bottom of the mounting hardware when it's installed.

RockyMounts said that they have seen it done with many different bike racks, however, it will void the warranty on their cargo basket. For a cargo basket that will allow you to mount your FrontLoader Bike Rack, your best option is going to be a Yakima cargo basket, like the LoadWarrior # Y07070 you mentioned. I also...

  • Roof Cargo Basket Recommendation for a 2015 Nissan Xterra with Factory Crossbars
  • If your crossbars are wider than 27-1/2 inches apart and are less than 4-3/4 inch wide by 1-3/4 inches tall the 14er part # RKY1054 would fit and work well. RockyMounts doesn't have specific fit info for this basket so you would have to measure first to be sure. Or for a similar basket that has been confirmed as a fit we have the Yakima LoadWarrior # Y07070 which is very similar. I attached a review video for you to check out for this as well.

This basket will not be an ideal fit on your Murano but we can definitely find one for you! We offer the Rola # 59504 that will work with a 30-inch crossbar spread and we also have baskets like the Rhino-Rack # RMCB that work within a wide range of bar spreads, from 21- to 30-inches. This makes this basket a great choice if you need the flexibility to use it on another vehicle....

The roof either has plastic or metal flush mount rails. I recommend adding a roof rack with crossbars to use a cargo basket.

I recommend using the Yakima system consisting of the CoreBars # Y00422, BaseLine towers # Y00146, and BaseClips # Y06121.

Therefore, as long as they do not exceed 4-3/4" wide x 1-3/4" tall and are spaced at least 27-1/2" apart I recommend using the RockyMounts 14'er Roof Mounted Cargo Basket part # RKY1054.
