Video Transcript for Stallion Roof Mounted Aluminum Cargo Basket Review

Today, we're going to be taking a look at the roof mounted aluminum cargo basket, part number 288-09200. This economically priced roof cargo basket is great for getting your gear out of your vehicle and on your roof, freeing up more space for passengers and pets. You can use it to store wet, dirty or oversized gear keeping the interior of your vehicle clean and uncluttered. Because it's constructed out of aluminum, it's rust and corrosion resistant. The black powder coat finish gives it a stylish look. Its overall dimensions are 50 inches long, 39 inches wide and seven inches deep. It has a weight capacity of 150 pounds, although you'll want to be sure and check with your vehicle's owner's manual to see if your roof can carry that much.

It features plenty of tie down points surrounding the carrier, so it's going to work with a wide variety of straps. It's going to attach to your round, square, arrow, elliptical and most factory roof rack systems. It's a very easy installation. I'll go ahead and show you that now. To get it installed, we need to be sure we have a crossbar spread between 17 and 3/4 and 24 and 3/4. Now because it's made out of aluminum, you should have no problem loading it up on your own.

I'm just going to center it up. Now let's go ahead and install our hardware. We're going to need the bracket top plate, the U bolt, the spacer block and our two knobs. First thing we want to do is install our spacer block. I'm going to install it right here, it's going to go underneath and sit down like so. Then I'll take my top bracket.

I'm going to set it on top, it's going to line up with the two square openings on top. Then I'll take the U bolt, I'll go underneath and get that lined up with the openings on the top bracket. Then I'll just take the knobs, get those started and then I'll tighten them down evenly. With everything all done, you can see, got it nice and tight. It's not going anywhere. Now, let's go ahead and load up some cargo.

Customers on our site are comparing this to the roller roof mounted cargo basket. They're both medium capacity baskets. This one's constructed out of aluminum, making it more lightweight than the steel constructed roller. It also has a higher weight capacity than the roller. The roller is slightly larger in size. The roller does feature a faring 00:02:31 to reduce wind noise and drag. However, the aluminum basket is more economically priced. That's going to complete our look at the roof mounted aluminum cargo basket, part number 288-09200.

I have not mounted the rack yet, but it seems sturdy and extremely light weight. I live by the beach so I based my decision on that and bought this aluminum rack. The price was very good compared to Thule or Yakima racks. I rate this experience as a 4 because there were no instructions included and I was not able to find a pdf on-line, nor a video which showed how to assemble. I figured it out, the 4 nuts threw me off as you do not need them. I suggest putting a pdf instruction booklet on-line and also an assembly video. Overall, etrailer was great to deal with, shipping was fast and very cheap! 556164

This is a great basket! It's very light and durable. I can pick it up easily in one hand even though it's pretty big. I have this basket on my 2011 Yaris and it holds 3 duffel bags full of clothes, a folding vacuum, highchair, 2 camping chairs, a longboard, skateboard, a four foot folding table, and another smaller folding table. I've had a few instances where the basket slipped sideways but that was because of extremely hazards roads in Kings Conservation Area in California and getting ran over by half of a tree tumbling down the road and over top of my car in a down burst from a monsoon in Phoenix. This basket has seen about 8,000 miles through 24 states in the last year and I intend for it to see at least a dozen more this year. 489373


Comments
This basket was so amazing, but I no longer needed it because I was upgrading to a bigger vehicle with no need for a roof cargo system. I sold it on [used items site] and put the money towards a new hitch for the new vehicle on eTrailer!

Good quality. Easy to assemble. I recommend this unit. I like how tall it is, 7 inches. Needed a rack on my luggage trailer for bulky stuff, like beach chairs. 539429

Fast shipment, arrived early than expected. Easy install. Great fit for my Toyota RAV4. 694024

First impressions, 5 stars. I have assembled this and mounted it on the vehicle (2018 Highlander) and test rode it less any cargo. When I originally assembled it, it seemed easier to do upside down on a flat surface, but as I tightened the 16 different bolts, the frame was not flat at all four corners, unloosen bolts and it flattened out. So I opted to install it on the vehicle with the bolts/washers loosened, then once tightly flat at all four corners with the mounting hardware, I tightened the frame hardware. I have 8-foot garage doors, so I pulled the vehicle under the opened door and I have 22" clearance from the basket floor to the open door. Anyone wanting to load inside a garage should know your clearance so you don't damage the garage door or frame, or your cargo. Even though this unit is aluminum, I will Permatex the openings and the bolts/washers with the recommended gasket maker. The frame itself is six pieces, both sides, two flat tray pieces, and the curved front and the curved back, and each piece has threads put together with 8 bolts/washers per side. The hardware kit must be used for other basket models, since there were four other bolts/washers/nuts and nut wrench not needed for this basket. I can also see being able to secure several 2x4's front to back between the frame openings, for transporting from the lumber yard. 525231

No pictures as I just got it home from th office. This came double boxed--a box for the basket and that box along with the rails box were in an even heavier box. Arrived on time and in perfect condition from looks of packaging. Will be assembling tomorrow. The customer service is terrific. I called in and got operator 72961 and she was very helpful in tracking my packages all the way--twice! This company is the best! 784845

I prefer NOT to drive with anything on top of the vehicle unless necessary for many reasons. That being said, I did not require the use of the rack as initially anticipated; but, the rack was easy to assemble and seems quite adequate should I need it in the future. The purchase was easy, delivery prompt, light product; but as advertised and seems adequate unless overloaded. 766902

Great product. Exactly what I needed. Easier to put it together than I expected, and very light yet strong. Extremely pleased with it. 764208

I have an older Thule soft bag which I formerly used atop a minivan. It no longer works on my 2014 Ford Edge with factory roof rack and crossbars. I bought this basket to contain the bag, so that I can still use the bag on my Edge. The basket was shipped a couple hours after I ordered it. It arrived quickly. Package was in pristine condition. Basket was easy to assemble. It is VERY light weight. It should work for my application. I do not plan to leave it on my Edge. It will be for vacation use only. The integrity of a few of the welds on the basket looks marginal, but I think it will hold together for what it needs to do. 757525

Purchased this basket for my 2017 Subaru Outback. The basket itself is great quality - rugged, well put together, very light weight and accepts a significant amount of cargo. Improvement needs to be made on the hardware to attach the basket to the roof rack. It takes a solid 40 minutes just to attach the rack using the provided hardware. It would seem a simple snap on, not screw attaching hardware would make the rack more useful. 756995

Lite weight, easy to lift up onto the roof rack and economically priced so why shouldn't I be happy with it? "Very happy", to say the least! 746115

I've been really impressed with this company and product. It shipped to me in no time at all and I had communication from etrailer every step of the way. The roof rack is very lightweight, easy to assemble and looks great. There were instructions on assembly in the box (which from other reviews seems like that wasnt always the case). I am really pleased with both the product and the shopping experience as a whole. Thanks for listening to your customer feedback! 716555

Great rack and very light weight. Took 15 min to put together and instructions really not requied. Quick delivery and really looks better in person. Thanks 638131



- 288-09200
by:

Good value, but be aware more for light-duty use. I made the mistake of bolting a section of PVC pipe to it to carry tent poles on a trip and the additional stresses cracked some of the aluminum welds. My fault. If used only with softer items contained within the basket all should be well. That's the trade off for a lightweight basket. 634373

Comments
Just washed my Jeep by hand and had a close up look at the roof rack. Still in great shape after a year of beach use. Stack lots of chairs on it and on it. Great product as my first roof rack rusted off in less than 1 year.

If your vehicle has stock rails be sure to measure them because it may say it fits your rails, but you may need cross bars anyway. Which can be bought separately. 594756

Very good product. Good service too, they fixed a problem I had without difficulty. Would just recommend that additional hardware be included because some of mine came defective which made the rack unmountable (stripped threads on a mounting U-bolt). 551874

Ask the Experts about this Stallion Roof Basket

  • Economically Priced Roof Cargo Basket that Fits 2018 Subaru Outback Roof Rack
    While we have roof baskets that fit the 30 inch crossbar spread of your 2018 Subaru Outback the Stallion basket part # 288-09200 that you referenced will not work for you as it only fits the spread range of 17-3/4" - 24-3/4". For a similar priced cargo basket that fits your 30 inch spread well we have the Rola part # 59504 which is a fit and has inside dimensions of 48" long x 37-1/2" wide x 4" deep.

  • Recommended Cargo Basket for 2016 Mazda CX-3 with Rhino-Rack RS Roof Rack Installed
    With the Rhino-Rack ROC25 Roof Rack # RR46XR installed on your 2016 Mazda CX-3 you are looking at a crossbar spread of 26 inches (distance between front and rear crossbars on center). The Stallion Aluminum Roof Mounted Cargo Basket # 288-09200 referenced in your question will work with a crossbar spread of 17-3/4 inches to 24-3/4 inches, so it's not going to be a good fit on your vehicle. For an aluminum basket that will fit the Rhino-Rack roof rack on your Mazda CX-3, I recommend taking...

  • Will a Fairing Fit the Aluminum Roof Mounted Cargo Basket # 288-09200
    To answer your first question about 80 bucks. But seriously a lot has to do with the application, size, construction, and brand in terms of fairing cost. What I recommend is one of the Rhino-Rack universal fairings. They come in a variety of lengths and can fit just about anything (although in this case you may have to attach the fairing directly to cargo basket # 288-09200 by drilling into the basket). The shortest Rhino-Rack option, and probably the best fit, is the 38 inch model...

  • Cargo Nets for Curt Cargo Carrier # C18145 and Roof Cargo Basket # 288-09200
    The cargo net that I recommend for the Stallion Roof Basket, part # 288-09200, is the Spidy Gear Luggage Webb Cargo Net # 80121-01. The cargo net measures 50 inches x 40 inches when it is unstretched, which means that it will fit perfectly on the Stallion roof basket. Choosing a cargo net for the Curt Cargo Carrier, part # C18145, is going to be a little bit more tricky. The 2 closest sizes to the 17 inches x 46 inches carrier that we have are the Rhino-Rack Net # RLN1-RTD4 which is...

  • Will Stallion Roof Cargo Basket 288-09200 Fit Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars
    The Stallion Roof Cargo Basket # 288-09200 fits on your Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero roof rack crossbars like # RRVA126B-2 since the basket's mounting hardware works on bars as large as 4-3/4 x 2-inches. You'll just want to take a quick measurement of the bar spacing to confirm it falls within the basket's compatible range. As long as the bars' centers are spaced apart between 17-3/4 and 24-3/4-inches the basket will fit great. You may want to consider a lightweight folding step like the...

  • Aluminum Roof Cargo Basket for a 2013 VW Golf TDI and a 2013 Mitsubishi Outlander
    I recommend the Thule Trail XT Cargo Carrier, part # TH864XT. The most important to your application is adjustable front-to-back mounting points. This lets you quickly and easily adjust the position of the roof basket's clamps to let you easily switch between vehicles. The Thule Trail uses smaller rails but has more flexible installations as far as size of roof racks because of its included brackets. Additionally, the curved sides help align the load better, helping you plan how...

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for my 2018 Nissan Rogue S
    I really like the Rhino-Rack ROC25 Roof Rack for Naked Roofs part # RR85QR. It has a really nice factory look and is custom fit for your Rogue so it gives a great fit. The 41" usable bar space will work out well with a roof top basket or bag to transport your luggage. The Aluminum Roof Mounted Cargo Basket part # 288-09200 is 44" Long x 39" Wide so it will fit perfectly and give you the area you need. The Rightline Gear Sport 3 Rooftop Cargo Bag part # RL100S30 is a great addition...

  • Weight of MaxxTow Roof Mounted Cargo Basket
    The MaxxTow Roof Mounted Cargo Basket # MT70115 has a shipping weight of 27 lbs so if you subtract for packaging it checks in at just about 25 lbs. Since you are trying to maximize your cargo use, another option is the Stallion Roof Mounted Cargo Basket # 288-09200 which is only a pound less at 24 lbs but has a bit more room for cargo, with inside dimensions measuring 2-1/2" longer and 2-3/4" wider.

  • Yakima Rooftop Cargo Bag Compatibility with 2018 Honda CRV Touring Crossbars
    Roof bags do not have a solid bottom spanning the crossbars, so the Yakima DryTop Rooftop Cargo Bag - Water Resistant - 16 cu ft # Y07404 will fit between and on top of the crossbars. It will simply have a slight rise in the crossbar locations. It does have an anti-skid bottom to keep the bag from shifting and it will secure to your crossbars. It will work well with your 23-1/2 inches between your crossbars. This bag also has the ability to use the door jams to secure the bag to...

  • Will Thule Sidekick Cargo Box Fit Rhino-Rack 2500 Series Roof Rack Crossbars on a 2010 Honda Civic
    The Rhino-Rack 2500 series bars are 3-1/2 inches wide. The Thule Sidekick, # TH682, fits on crossbars that are up to 3-3/4 inches wide, so the mounting hardware will fit on the Rhino-Rack bars. The cargo box requires a bar spread (center to center distance between the bars) of 23-5/8 inches minimum to 32-1/16 inches maximum. If you have a 4-door civic then the spread with the Rhino-Rack bars will be 27-1/2 inches and the box will fit fine. But on a 2-door model the spread will be...
