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.

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

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

bought the basket, and inno crossbars, and rola flat strap cargo net (59200) all from e trailer in three separate purchases. all were received in good condition. used them on 2014 Ford Flex. Put them on in San Diego, with 6 bags in basket. the cargo net worked very good, but decided to add two straps to make sure, LF to RR, RF to LR. had no issues going to san Francisco, montery, and los angeles traffic both ways. wind noise could be heard at 75 mph, into a 35 mph wind, but was not horrible. drove back to Oklahoma with empty basket, and again no wind noise except for 83 mph and a 30 to 40 mph cross wind. easy assembly, for both basket and bars. 215764

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

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

Some quality control issues Overall, I like the basket, think it is fairly priced, and am happy with it. However, there were two quality control issues that should be noted. I'll mention those in a moment. The overall unit is solid and looks good on my black Jeep Liberty. It fit well on the OEM crossbars and was straightforward to install. The unit is pretty heavy, but it has a really solid, substantial feel that makes me think it will securely hold whatever I put up there (within the 130 lb limit). Now, on to the complaints. These are really small things, but are still worth noting. First, there is a noticeable dent in the main large tube on the left front side. It is clearly a factory defect because the dent has been powder coated along with the rest. If I had bought it locally, I would have taken it back and exchanged it. Having had it shipped, I simply cannot go through that. Second, there was an error in the placement of the holes where you use screws to hold the two halves together. Three of the four screw holes lined up fine, but on one of the smaller tubes, the inner hole didn't match the outer hole. I had to drill my own hole to set the screw. These aren't major problems, but it's sloppy on both counts. On balance, I would recommend the product and would not make a different choice if I had it to do over. Also, I should note that etrailer did everything you could ask for. I ordered it on a Saturday evening and they shipped it on Monday morning. It arrived Wednesday. You can't ask for more than that. 2065

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


Comments
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.

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

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

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 Rola Roof Mounted Cargo Basket arrived in "new" condition three days from time of order. The rack is sturdy, appears to be of good quality, and has solid and easy to use attachments for connecting to the top of the car. The dimensions are a good fit not only for the looks of my 2017 Subaru Outback, but also are a good match for the 30" distance between the Subaru cross bars and the width of the cross bar supports. There is an increase in wind noise as speed goes above 60 mph as is to be expected in an otherwise quiet car. The rack's interior dimensions are a good match for a 44 x 34 x 17 roof top cargo bag with an inch or two to spare. 353278

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

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.

The Honda factory rack is pretty useless, and adding this Rola rack gives me the ability to securely carry a lot more stuff. It fit together nicely, and wasn't hard to assemble. The rack is solid and we'll made, but the finish scratches easily. The factory Honda CRV crossbars work okay for mounting the rack. I'm very happy with the quality I got at this price. I used plumbers putty to make double sure no water could get into the couplings. 551509

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

Bought this rack nearly 2 years ago. It has suited my needs very well. It has carried people, wood, and cargo. For the price you can't beat it! Its starting to show its age with some rust spots, but hey its metal, metal rusts. Don't let this deter you from buying it, GET IT MAN! I attached some pictures of it installed on my Jeep 18218

After camping out of our 2013 Subaru Outback for the first time, we realized the usefulness of a roof rack to put tubs and coolers overnight. We looked around for a quality basket when we came across this Rola basket at etrailer.com and the pricepoint was right on. (I'm not that guy who spends $$$+ for anything because it's a yuppy brand. I like quality products but shop around for competitive prices before I buy anything.) The package arrived exactly when quoted, undamaged. I opened the box right away and found the basket VERY easy to assemble. The rack comes in two main pieces. All you have to do is align and slide the two main pieces together, and drill the screws in. It's easy enough for one person to assemble with only a screwdriver or cordless drill with Phillips head bit. The Rola rack feels very sturdy and is a well-made product. Once I screwed on the wind deflector, I could tell it was a sharp design and was happy with the sporty looks. I could also tell the mounting brackets were easy to figure out and seemed they would be quite effective at bracing the rack to the top of our new Subie. I was able to lift the basket and lay it upon the factory crossbars without help, though I wouldn't recommend it unless you're fairly strong and/or rather tall. (I'm neither, but was determined to get it done to surprise my wife.) If I remember correctly, it weights a bit over 40-lbs. Aligning the rack on the vehicle and determining its position is a personal preference and is as easy as sliding and nudging it until you're good with it. The mounting brackets then mount around your factory crossbar in four places, and attach to two of the cross-tubes as shown in the manufacturer's photos. Very easy to attach and tighten, even BY HAND. Lots of PROS to the Rola basket, and etrailer.com too! Product Availability. Price. Ease of Assembly. Quick Delivery. Our only CON to the rack is the added wind noise, but we expected that. Great looks! Great design! Easy Assembly. Very happy Subie owners! 60969

We have installed and used this product. It was easy to put together and it makes loading our roof bag a snap. I would have given it an excellent rating, but we had some rusty screws that we had to replace as they were the ones that hold the front windscreen on and they were ugly and we couldn't stand looking at them. It didn't leave us feeling confident that the rest of this rack isn't going to rust, but it has been in the rain already with no signs. We'll see how it goes in winter. Overall, it is a great product though. Shipping was fast and it was simple to get on the roof racks. 137028


Comments
Weve been using this product for a year. We have taken it off the roof and reinstalled it several times and it still works great. My only issue is that we have had more rusting on certain parts of the rack installation equipment. Its meant to be in weather so they really should have done a better job on this. Overall, we have been very happy.

The tire has an overall diameter of 32.1" and the internal dimensions of the basket are 48" long x 37-1/2" wide x 4" deep which means it will be a snug and secure fit.

A little research shows that the Trailhawk is about 70 inches wide, so the Rola Roof Basket, part # 59504 will come across as a little small, but you can verify the specific width of your roof (Which is what will create the illusion) by measuring the distance between your roof rails.

Instead, I recommend the Yakima LoadWarrior, part # Y07070, a cargo basket actually designed with using accessories on it in mind.

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. If your bars are more than 2-7/8 inches wide you could use the MaxxTow carrier # MT70115 which will fit crossbars up to 5-7/8 inches wide at a max spread of 32 inches.

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...

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.

    We have fairings that can attach from the crossbars of your roof rack down to the roof of your 2013 Subaru Outback Wagon but nothing that attaches directly to the Rola # 59504.

Like the part # Y05017 is 40 inches long and...

  • What Roof Cargo Basket is Compatible with OEM Crossbars on a 2016 Nissan Murano?
