We have a 2015 Subaru Outback. It has side rails and cross bars but nothing to keep our roof top cargo bag from sitting directly on the roof. So we were looking for a basket for mounting to the rails and holding the cargo off of the roof, saw good reviews on this one and felt it was a good price. Since we had a limited amount of time left before needing it, I called into etrailer and spoke with Vince. He was very easy to converse with, answered my questions, took my order over the phone so that the basket could be sent out as soon as possible and even told me how I could get a price match applied to my purchase. I received the basket yesterday, assembled it and mounted to my Subaru this morning. It is a very sturdy piece of equipment, well made, fit well, looks good and will certainly hold all of the items we will need to haul. The basket comes in 2 halves which you put together using rubber gaskets to cover the connecting screws and joints. There is the deflector that is mounted to the front using 4 screws and then the mounting brackets that are used to mount it to the roof crossbars. Our bars were 30" apart center to center and everything fit perfectly and looks great. We will be putting it to use this weekend on our beach trip. 224645

Great Product I am pleased with how good it looks on my 4runner. Install was a breeze. It took a while for it to get here due to it being on backorder, but once it shipped on a Friday I had it on Tuesday. There were no holes drilled on the basket for the wind deflector to mount to. I'm just going to drill them myself. Other than that, I am very pleased.. 3456

bryan if you dont mind answering my question did you buy the extension I have a 2004 4runner without extension it is too small? Or can I use extension on my 2004 4runner thanks in advance.

The minimum corss bar spread needed for the basket with or without the extension is 26-1/4 inches, center to center. The basket alone will go up to 37-1/2 inch spread, in 3-3/4 inch increments. The basket with extension will go all the way from 26-1/4 to 52-1/4 inches spread, again at 3-3/4 inch increments. Check out the link to the instructions on the 59504 basket, it should help clear things up if I have not.

Looks great and size is just right for my Jeep Renegade. The rubber pieces are a little hard to put on. I used Armor All to make it easier. The rack is easy to put together and install. 596804

The roof rack is better built than I thought it would be. It's securely mounted and doesn't move around when you grab it and give it a good hard tug. It looks great on my truck. Apparently, Rola doesn't include sealant for the joints as in previous versions. However, the joints are nicely powder coated, so that should help. I'll pick up some black silicone and put a small bead around the joints anyway, so it's all good. This was my first purchase from etrailer, and I have to say I'm impressed. I ordered it Saturday afternoon and it was delivered Wednesday. Even more amazing is there was a bad storm and their warehouse was struck by lightning, crippling their computers. They STILL got it to me quickly. Kudos to etrailer, I'll 11706

Loaded up luggage for 5 people and drove to Florida on top of my 2012 Dodge Journey. With a couple of tarps and proper ratchet straps and bungy chords, it worked like a charm, and saved me quite a bit of cargo room in the back. Had minimal wind resistance and hardly affected my gas mileage at all. Even wind noise on top was not significant. I highly recommend the Rola Rooftop Basket. 166962

The Rola roof basket was easy to assemble, and easy to install onto the roof of my car as well. Looks nice, no road noise that I noticed and was reasonably priced also. 561772

The Rola roof rack fits nicely on my Lexus 400h. I travel with small outboard motor and a dirt bike so it will be used to keep my jerry cans (mixed and unmixed fuel) on the roof of the car. Eight self tapping screws are needed to assemble the unit...four are used to attach the two halves of the rack, and four are used to attach the wind deflector to the leading edge of the rack. Unfortunately, the bag of hardware that came with my rack only had six screws 271941

Last year just after buying the rack I put it to good use on a long 16,000 trip, Ontario, Yukon, BC, Utah, Ontario. Only disappointment was getting my jerry cans stolen, but they didnt take the rack! Ive just put the rack on the SUV again, getting ready for another trip to the Pacific coast.

Went together fine. Rubber joint covers were problematic so I did not use at all. Looks real nice. Finish blends well with our 2015 Subaru Outback. Needed a step ladder from street level to roof to install. I suspect I’ll travel with a small fold flat step stool to load and unload stuff from up top. I don’t like standing in open door frame to load and unload roof cargo. 440094

The unit is solid and a nice addition. Road noise was a bit of an issue but it calmed down once I realigned the rack with the car. It was slightly off being parallel with the car. The only negative is rust has started at a couple of the welded joints even though it is regularly cleaned and a coat of wax applied. I may need to repaint it or take it in to have it powder coated. I get a lot of compliments on the rack and in my opinion, it looks beefier and better than the pricier competition. I would not hesitate to purchase another if needed for another project vehicle. 716911

I’ve had my Rola roof rack for a little over a year now and it’s great! I, personally, think it looks better than the Yakima Warrior load and it’s a better deal for great quality. I purchased the extension as well and it fits great on my 07 4Runner. I’ve attached a high lift jack and shovel mount, as well as a snowboard rack for the winter. It’s been everywhere and back and is truly no comparison to the Yakima warrior load. 635386

This is exactly what I was looking for to add a little extra space to my 2011 Toyota Rav4. It was extremely easy to put together and install. It is strong enough that I even added my canoe racks to the side bars so now I can have the storage and have my boat racks on top as well. I was expecting a lot more road noise but I cant really tell the difference. So far so good. eTrailer had fast, free shipping and it was right on time and packaged well. 229421

OK so I got this and had read some reviews on rusting so here's my fix. Before you assemble it spray the inside of the tubes with spray paint. Color doesn't matter unless you let it run out somewhere. Give it a good week to dry out. If it's warm where you are then two days. When you assemble the halves run a ring of silicone sealer around the inside of the tubes before sliding them together. When you install the screws put some in each hole too. Seals the whole shebang up. Now about those rubber sleeves that go over the center seam and cover the screws. Lube the inside good, and the outside of the tubes before you slide them on, then fold them back over themselves before sliding those tube sections above together. If they don't have enough lube you will invent new words your children may not have heard. The instructions are a bit vague, but it's not rocket science. Now I had no problem installing it on the roof bars I have, but getting it centered was time consuming. (Pro Tip!= Once mounted where you want it use some colored electrical tape and wrap it around your cross tubes up against the roof basket mounts. This way if you take it off you can get it right back where you had it. No don't thank me, glad to help.) Now the rack is a bit noisy on my 2021 Subie Crosstrek, but a little fiddling will bring her around. You can wrap the cross tubes and the rack bottom tube with paracord and it will cut a lot out, Plus you'll always have some paracord wherever you go. The rack mounted easily but there is no lock so I used a pistol safety lock around the cross bars which do lock to the vehicle, and around the bottom bars of the rack. Tied it up out of the way with a few zip ties, and wrapped it good in some of that colored electrical tape we discussed earlier. It really is a heavy duty rack and I have no worries it can handle limbs and such off road. etrailer is my go to supplier from now on. Need info?, they got it, Need tech help? right there waiting. A week after I bought this rack they had a price drop. I emailed them about it and presto, refund secured. Can't say enough good about these folks. If you don't have time to do this rack up like I said, maybe you should shop on, but if you take the time to do it right this is a really good, and I would say definitely off road rated rack basket. Whatever you buy, Just get the hack out there with it. You could use a little fresh air. 931867

Searching the site, finding the right cargo rack and placing the order was one of the easiest experiences I've had online in a long time. Product info was accurate and informative with pictures. Cargo rack arrived on time, with all parts needed. It took about half an hour for my daughter and I to assemble and mount on the car!!! Solid construction, high quality finish and hefty mounting brackets...nothing flimsy about this rack. Great, low profile look that adds a very cool look to the car. Whats going to be its first test??? You guessed it. Hauling a dorm room worth of stuff off to college!!!!! 851025

Great basket, but it is very heavy. Which makes it hard to get onto the roof of my small suv without some help. Also, the weight and resistance kills my gas mileage and affects the handling of my vehicle (even when empty), so I take it off in the winter. I wish it was aluminum! Otherwise, the design and size are ideal for me. Super easy to strap things down and works pretty well for carrying oversized items (sheets of plywood). Shipped fast. 820907

  • Replacement Mounting Brackets for Rola Roof Cargo Basket 59504
    The Rola Replacement Roof Mount Bracket Assembly # 59506, which is the replacement mounting hardware for the Rola Roof Cargo Basket # 59504, does come with both brackets and u-bolts that fit those brackets. It sounds like you may be looking for other u-bolts that are 6 inches long, but there are none because rooftop cargo baskets are made for roof racks, and those bars are, at most, up to 4 inches, but even that width is rare.

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for Installing Roof Mounted Cargo Basket on 2012 Honda CR-V
    In order to use the Rola # 59504 Roof Mounted Cargo Basket, you will indeed need a roof rack to provide an attachment point to the vehicle roof, as the basket can't attach directly. If your CR-V has the roof rails that run front to back along the sides of the roof, Rola offers crossbars that would work well for you, available in black or silver. For black, use # R4002 or # 59681 for a silver finish. If your CR-V has a bare roof, the most economical option we offer is the Inno square...

These means that as long as your crossbars are no wider than 2-7/8 inches you will be able to use the Rola basket.

  • 2012 Toyota Venza Panoramic Roof Carrying Weight Capacity
    I wouldn't recommend resting any weight whatsoever directly upon the glass panels that make up the panoramic roof of your Venza. The glass that makes up that sunroof is very expensive to replace. If you're wanting to carry cargo on the roof, your best bet would be to use a Yakima Q-Tower roof rack and a small cargo basket like the Reese # 59504. According to Yakima, when installed on the Venza, the roof rack will have a 125 lb capacity and would consist of the following parts: 58...

  • Locking the Rola Cargo Basket to a Roof Rack
    The thread pitch information for the U-bolts used on the Rola carrier # 59504 is not available but there is an easier solution. You could just use a strap lock like # LS901 or even Rightline lock # RL100640 to secure the carrier to the vehicle crossbars.

  • How to Determine if Rola Roof Basket Will Fit 2015 Subaru Outback with Factory Roof Rack
    Since the Rola roof cargo basket # 59504 doesn't have a specific vehicle fit list you will need to do a little measuring on your 2015 Subaru Outback to determine if it will fit the factory crossbars. First measure the center to center distance from one crossbar to the other. Then measure the width of a crossbar. The Rola basket will fit crossbar spreads of 26-1/4", 30", 33-3/4", or 37-1/2" on bars that are up to 1-1/4" tall x 3-1/4" wide. If the crossbars on your Outback meet these specifications...

  • 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...

  • Can 2014 Subaru Outback Sunroof be Opened to Vent Position with Rola Cargo Basket Installed
    What you can do is put your sunroof in the vent position and then look to see if it comes up further than the bottoms of the crossbars on the 2014 Subaru Outback roof rack. If it does not then you will likely be able to put the sunroof in the vent position. Generally speaking we recommend not opening the sunroof at all when something is loaded on the roof. The Rightline cargo bag, # RL100S20, would be a good fit for the Rola basket # 59504. It would fill up most of the free space...

  • Will U-Bolt Threads of Mounting Bracket of Rola Cargo Basket 59504 Stick Through Mounting Knob
    When the Rola Roof Mounted Cargo Basket # 59504 is clamped to a roof rack crossbar the u-bolt threads would not extend past the knob of the mounting bracket so you would not have to worry about the bolt damaging a roof bag. In the pictures it appears as if the bolt comes out of the top of the U-bolt but if the bracket was attached to a crossbar the threads wouldn't go all the way through the knob.
