Video Transcript for Rola Roof Mounted Cargo Basket Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Rola roof mounted cargo basket, part number 59504. It's available with an extension, part number 59504-EXT. If you already have the basket you can pick up the extension separately, with part number 59505.If lack of space is a problem for your road trips, weekend excursions or tail gates, then the Rola roof mounted cargo basket is a great solution for you. It's a medium sized basket with a sleek aerodynamic look, adding the extension maintains that sleek look while upgrading it to a larger basket.Unlike some other baskets, this one includes a faring which is going to help reduce wind noise and drag, which means less annoying noise for you when you're on the road. With the cargo removed, you can see it's a sturdy steel construction with an open floor design, so dirt and debris does not build up and call fall right through.It has a black powder coat finish so it's going to be resistant to rust and corrosion, and you can feel it comfortable leaving it on in inclement weather. Our customer Velazquez T says, "This rack is the best.

I got one on my '15 Tacoma. I just got another one for my '07 4runner, with the extension, and I'm really happy. It fits so perfect. If you need more cargo space, just give your SUV a nice look and increase your cargo room. This fits all.

Rola rocks!"The standard basket has inside dimensions of 48" long, 37.5" wide and 4" deep. Outside dimensions are 54.5" long, 40.5" wide and 5" deep. With the extension, it measures 67" long, 37.5" wide and 4" deep. That's the inside dimensions. The outside dimensions are 74.5" long, 40.5" wide and 5" deep.As you can see here, even with the extension installed we still have plenty of room to open up our rear hatch.

In either configuration, it has a weight capacity of 130 pounds. Now, you want to be sure and check with your roof rack's owner's manual and your vehicle's owner's manual to see how much weight it can carry. It's going to attach to your round, square, arrow, elliptical and most factory roof rack systems with the included hardware.Customers on our site are comparing this to the Curt roof mounted cargo basket. Now the Curt does have a higher weight capacity of 150 pounds, but it does not have an extension available for it. It's 41.5" long on the outside, which is shorter than the 54.5" long on the Rola.

They are both made out of a steel construction and they both also have a faring, and that's going to complete our look at the Rola roof mounted cargo basket.

I arrived home yesterday and immediately began installing it on our 1st Gen Toyota Sequoia. It went together well and really looks good on the roof. The only "gripe" that I have is that the two halves are not protecting from rubbing on each other during shipment from Rola, so there were some scuffs in the powdercoating. It was minimal and located inside the rack cargo area, so not a big deal. Best part is the Sequoia still fits in our garage with it installed (it's close though!) etrailer will be getting more of my business in the future. 661105

Product was very easy to put together and install. Looks great 659317

Bought one extension to make the rack full length for the Tahoe 656265

- 59504-EXT

I bought this Rola Cargo Basket to increase the storage capacity of my 2018 Tahoe and to keep dirty/wet items outside. My family tailgates for Clemson football games and I need to haul tents, chairs, coolers, generator, gas cans … etc. I was initially looking at the comparable Rhino Rack, but it would not fit my factory crossbars. For whatever reason, Chevrolet decided to use fixed bars on the Tahoe, so adjustment was not an option. The folks at etrailer had a good knowledge of their products and steered me toward the Rola, Thule or Yakima extended cargo basket options. I thought the Rola looked the best (personal preference) so I went with that. The item came well packaged, but it looked like the delivery guy did his best to test the durability of the box. The rack comes in three main pieces, and they are powder-coated in flat black. There were a few areas where the powder coat was scratched or scuffed, so if you are a perfectionist, you may want to try a higher-end basket. I was not bothered by the imperfections and I intend to add more scuffs to the rack in the future. The cargo basket was easy to assemble, but large, so you need some room to get the job done. I like that the assembly points have rubber gaskets that fit over the joints to keep out moisture and prevent corrosion. This part of the assembly made a bit of a mess, as lubricant is required to get the gaskets to slide into place tightly. Everything fit together well, and this thing appears to be very durable. The welds look good and the tube frame is heavy duty. Installation on the vehicle went well and I used a helper to avoid scratching anything. The attachment mechanisms were easy to use and can accommodate several crossbar types. The upper portion of the anchor is plastic and slightly rounded to conform to aero and elliptical bars. The lower portion is a rubber coated U-bolt which tightens up beneath the crossbar. Everything felt very solid once it was tightened. I’m very happy with the installation and the way the cargo basket looks. I like that the vertical walls are low profile and very sturdy. I can still get the Tahoe in the garage door by about a quarter inch. The Rola sticker on the rear of the basket fell off after the exposure to rain, so if you are Rola brand loyal, you may want to order some spare stickers. My experience with James at Etrailer was top notch. Shout out to the guys who answer the email questions as well. These guys know their stuff and were very helpful. I would put in the same category as Crutchfield in terms of customer service. They are willing to spend time talking to you and making sure you have the correct product for your needs. 527448


Still great. It made it through football season and looks great. I highly recommend.

Love the product, used it to move my son into college, 3 hour drive with 150lbs of stuff and no issues at all, no loud wind noise. I am very happy I purchased it, also etrailer matched the Amazon prices and saved me an additional $87. I would recommend this product 1000%. Thanks 558721

After a fairly easy install, I love the way this looks! Still getting used to the size difference but am looking forward to transporting much more equipment. I am as well big on asthmatics as I am function. I’ll write another review once I’ve had the chance to utilize it! 547284

The Rola rack is really heavy duty and looks great on my Armada. Besides the plastic covers that cover the screws being a pain to put on it was fairly easy install. This is the second time I’ve ordered from etrailer and both times have been flawless. 663533

Great, for the price. There are few options for the Tahoe, could not find ONE that was the full length of the roof. I bought this and added an 18” extension for another $90. Took maybe an hour to install myself. Fits perfect, looks great! Thanks 656262

Do you have a question about this Roof Basket?

  • Roof Cargo Basket Options for a 45-1/2" Crossbar Spread on a 2018 Chevy Tahoe
  • If you check out the attached picture you can see that the 43" max spread is with the clamps in the furthest positions so unfortunately there isn't any wiggle room when it comes to mounting the Rhino-Rack Roof Mounted Steel Cargo Basket # RMCB02. We do have alternatives to the Thule Canyon # TH859XT-8591XT basket though which have similar looks to the Rhino-Rack option. The Rola Roof Cargo Basket # 59504-EXT is a great cost-effective option that measures 73-1/4" x 40-1/2" x 5" when the...

  • Interior Length of Rola Roof Cargo Basket
  • I went out and measured the Rola basket, part # 59504, and it was pretty much right on 48 inches at the center point of the bars on the top of the basket. So it's going to be a pretty tight fit for you. There is a version of this basket with an extender, part # 59504-EXT.

  • Roof Basket Compatible with 45 Inch Crossbar Spread on 2013 Toyota Tacoma Doublecab
  • The Crossbar spacing of 15, 22, or 29 inches apart on center is for the Roof Basket # C18115 without the extension. I reached out to my contact at Curt Technical and he said the 22 and 29 inches would work with the 29 being more ideal. He also said the 45 inches on center is a possible fit as far as length, but that would put a lot of weight in the center and that isn't recommended without some kind of additional support. For your application with the crossbar spread being so wide,...

  • 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...

  • Cargo Net and Tie Down Straps for Securing Cargo in Rola Rooftop Cargo basket # 59504-EXT
  • The Rola rooftop cargo basket # 59504-EXT can use Rola Cargo Net # 59200 but please do keep in mind that the size and shape of the loaded items can affect your best choice of net or tie-down straps. It really comes down to the specific size, shape and weight of the items you'll place in the basket. You may prefer to use some tie-down straps like 4-piece set # ETBMB-05852 or # EM34420 if the items are large enough to catch a lot of wind. At highway speeds solidly securing the items is...

  • Comparing the Longer and Shorter Rola Roof Cargo Baskets for a 2007 Toyota 4Runner
  • I am happy to help you in determining which Rola roof cargo basket is best for your lifestyle and your 2007 Toyota 4Runner! The most important questions when comparing these 2 options is how much space do you plan on needing and will the larger basket stick out in front or behind your 4Runner? The smaller basket, part # 59504, measures 54-1/2" Long x 40-1/2" Wide x 5" Deep while the larger basket, part # 59504-EXT, has the same width and depth measurements and is just longer at 73-1/4"...

  • Does 2016 Toyota 4Runner Need Roof Rack to Install Rola Cargo Basket # 59504-EXT
  • The Rola cargo basket part # 59504-EXT needs to have a set of crossbars that run from left to right on the roof of the vehicle for it to install on. So for your 2016 Toyota 4Runner we have the Inno roof rack part # INB127 and # INFR which is a confirmed fit and would work well for the vehicle and cargo basket.

  • Malone Roof Rack Recommendation for 2016 Nissan Pathfinder for Rola Cargo Basket
  • Aero shaped crossbars are definitely quieter than square bars so if you are wanting a quieter ride quality the aero shaped Malone roof rack part # MPG216 which is a confirmed fit for the raised roof rails of your 2016 Nissan Pathfinder would be the way to go over the # MPG202. With this rack installed you could then use the Rola cargo basket part # 59504-EXT that you mentioned.

  • Can Extension Piece on Rola Roof Cargo Basket # 59504-EXT Be Removed
  • Yes, the extension on the Rola Roof Cargo Basket # 59504-EXT can be removed so that you can use the basket in its original length of 54-1/2 inches. With the extension added the basket measures 73-1/4 inches long. If you think you will use the extension piece at some point on the vehicle then this is definitely the way to go, since it gives you the option of going with either the longer or shorter cargo basket. I have attached a short video demonstration that you can also check out.

  • What is Roof Rack Capacity for Rola Rail Extreme for 2017 Nissan Sentra
  • The weight capacity for the Rola roof rack part # R5037 that you referenced which is a fit for your 2017 Nissan Sentra 4-door is 165 lbs. With just this part number you'd have the a complete roof rack. Then for a longer Rola cargo basket to fit the wider crossbar spread of this roof rack you'd want the Rola basket part # 59504-EXT and you'd be set. This basket has a 130 lb capacity. You'll also want to check the roof capacity of your Sentra and be sure not to exceed that figure as well....

  • Roof Rack Basket Needed for Use on a Malone Roof Rack Trailer
  • The crossbars of the Malone MegaSport Trailer # MPG535 are 68" apart and are fixed in their locations. The Rola Roof Cargo Basket # 59504 that you referenced is compatible with a variety of crossbar spreads but the longest is 37-1/2". Instead of the MegaSport I recommend going with the MicroSport # MPG460G which has a crossbar spread minimum of 44" and maximum of 63". This then allows you to use the Rola Roof Cargo Basket # 59504-EXT which is the exact same basket you referenced just...

  • Is the Curt Roof Mounted Cargo Basket # C18115 Compatible with OEM Roof Rack on a 2016 Outback Wagon
  • Even though we haven't test fit it to a 2016 Subaru Outback Wagon I am sure the actual bracket of the Curt Roof Mounted Cargo Basket # C18115 will fit over your OEM crossbars. It is compatible with crossbars up to 3" wide x 1-5/8" tall. The part that I am not sure about is that this basket is compatible only with crossbars that have a spread (distance between the center of the front to the center of the back crossbar) of 15", 22", or 29". If your Outback Wagon fits this criteria then...

  • Can Curt Roof Mounted Cargo Basket be Used With Two Extensions
  • You can use two of the Extension for Curt Roof Mounted Cargo Basket # C18117 with the Curt Roof Mounted Cargo Basket # C18115 but the issue is that this basket has a very specific fit, needing to fit crossbars that are spaced 15", 22", or 29" apart on center and bars that are just 3" wide x 1-5/8" tall. For your Ford Excursion the issue is getting bars of that size at that specific spread. You can easily add a third crossbar but I'm not sure what roof rack you have or the year of your...

  • Is a Third Crossbar Required when Adding an Extension to Rola Roof Basket 59504
  • Having a third roof rack crossbar is not a requirement for adding extension # 59504-EXT to Rola cargo basket # 59504. Of course the more support the better but it is not required. It may also be difficult to get a single bar that is the same height as your other bars as well but you could use the Darby Turbo Rack # DTA968 for when the basket is loaded and then take it off when it is not loaded.

  • Installing Flood Lights on Rooftop Cargo Basket
  • The Rola Roof Cargo Basket # 59504-EXT can have floodlights connected directly to the basket. The method of installation is key to the warranty. If you utilize mounts that connect to the bars you will not void any warranty, but if there is drilling or altering the basket in any way, then the warranty would be void. For example, you may want to use brackets like the Yakima SnapAround Mounting Brackets # Y8810135.

  • Can Rooftop Tent Mount on Cargo Basket?
  • It depends on the tent; most rooftop tents, such as the Yakima SkyRise # Y07406, mount to crossbars and not cargo baskets such as your Rola Roof Cargo Basket # 59504-EXT. Additionally, your roof basket has the 180 lb cargo limit but you do need to go by whatever capacity is lower, your vehicle's roof or the basket, despite whatever capacity a roof tent may have.

  • Larger Roof Cargo Basket Recommendation for 2010 Mercedes Benz GL450 with Thule Rack
  • You need to check the owners manual of your vehicle to find the roof capacity listed. I wasn't able to find an online copy of your manual otherwise I'd check it. For a larger roof basket that would fit well on the Thule roof rack you have the Rola part # 59504-EXT would work great. It measures 73-1/4" Long x 40-1/2" Wide x 5" Deep and has a 180 lb weight capacity.

  • Will the Curt Roof Cargo Basket 18115-117 Fit a 2007 Toyota 4Runner Sport
  • We haven't yet had a chance to test fit the Curt Roof Mounted Cargo Basket part # C18115-117 on a 2007 Toyota 4Runner Sport so I cannot confirm fit. However, as long as the crossbars do not exceed 3" wide x 1-5/8" tall and they are spaced 15", 22", or 29" apart on center then it will work for you. With that being said, most factory aero crossbars are larger than 3" wide therefore I recommend taking a look at the Rola Roof Cargo Basket part # 59504-EXT which can also accommodate a larger...

  • Will Rola Roof Cargo Basket 59504-EXT Fit Factory Roof Bars on 2016 Toyota 4Runner Trail
  • The Rola Roof Cargo Basket # 59504-EXT will fit your 4Runner's roof bars as long as they are not larger than 3-1/4-inches wide and 1-1/4-inches tall. Also the bars' center to center spacing should fall into the range of 26-1/4" - 48-3/4" if you plan to use the included 18-inch extender or between 26-1/4" - 37-1/2" if you do not use the extender. If the rack meets these requirements the Rola carrier will be a great fit. You might consider an accessory cargo net like Rola # 59200 to help...
