Video Transcript for Surco Safari Rack Rooftop Cargo Basket Review

Adam: Hi everybody. Adam with etrailer.com. Today, on our vehicle, we have a Serco Roof Mounted Cargo Basket and we're going to do a couple things for you. One, we're going to see if it's going to be the right fit for you. Also, we're going to compare it to some of those other roof mounted cargo baskets that you may see on our website. Also, go over some of the basic features and, of course, show you how to install.

So let's get to it. So if you guys are looking to completely maximize the roof of your vehicle, this is definitely the way to go. This one that you see here is about 50 inches by 72 inches. So this whole entire basket is going to be made of aluminum, so it's going to resist against that rust and corrosion, but it also has a nice powder coated finish to it too, so it's just going to look nice over time.There is about 250 pounds of weight capacity that we'll have so we can load up a bunch of different gear. Or one thing that I've noticed is there's pretty big squares in this floor here and there actually is some floor kits that you can grab as well.

We have a spare tire carrier, and ax and shovel carrier, we actually have a bracket for and light that we can mount up here. So for your more off roady type vehicles like a Jeep or something like that, we also have a carrier that'll carry your high lift jack as well. So if you're in the trails rock climbing or just need to jack up your vehicle for something, you can carry that with you and take care of everything on the spot. So if you have a whole bunch of gear you plan on putting in your roof basket or you like the idea of all those attachments that we just listed off, I definitely think the Safari Rack might be a good choice for you.So we do have a whole lot of options here at etrailer when it comes to roof mounted baskets. One that I always usually prefer to people is the Max Haul.

A lot of people don't really need all that space. They don't have a lot of luggage and they don't really have a use for a lot of those attachments that you can put on this roof rack. Well, as you could see here, it's a lot smaller, so small that you can actually just fit it on the inside of the Serco, which just goes to show you how massive this is. I mean, it's easily taking up maybe 60% at most. As you can see here, you can lay the Max Haul inside the Serco pretty easily, just showing how big this thing is.

That is one that will definitely get the job done, but to be honest, if you really want to maximize your roof, I would definitely go with the Serco.There are some other options that we have as well, so if you are needing all of this space because you have a whole lot of luggage or you just like maximizing your vehicle, we look at some of the options with platform-style racks. The one right here is the Yakima, but we do have a lot of different brands as well. One thing, of course, it does not have rails, so it will be a little bit easier to load stuff up onto the platform style. But if you like the idea of those, you can actually buy those separately as well. It's just whether or not you want to just buy one kit that comes with it all or just buy a platform and then just start adding on attachments to make it yours. So this is going to be one of the few options that you'll have to get this much space in a basket form. If you don't necessarily like the basket form, platform racks is going to offer some of these features as well.So now to go over a couple of little details. We do have three-quarter inch square tubing, so your basic J hook is going to fit around there pretty nicely. There's a bunch of different places where you can find a spot to tie everything down, so you won't have much issues getting everything nice and secured. So one thing that I've noticed is these big old gaps right here. We have three slats, which leave those bigger gaps, which some cargo, we don't necessarily need a complete solid floor just because it's bigger and bulkier. And if you have an actual cargo bag that you put up on here that's going to fill the whole contents, that would take care of it as well. But if you have smaller gear that you plan on putting up top here, I do suggest grabbing the floor kit and it's going to come with more slots just to give you more surface area on the floor of your roof mounted basket.So this should work with most of your roof rack systems that you may have. We do have some feet here that we use today, but there's other adapters as well to adapt to those different bars you guys may be carrying on your roof. So let's get to it. Once you get everything nice and assembled, there is a little bit of assembly required but everything comes with your kit so you don't have to worry about grabbing anything else. Once you're done with that, you can go ahead and throw it up on your roof. So once you get it up here just be sure and get out a measuring tape and make sure it's nice and even on both sides just so it's not crooked whenever you fasten it down. Also, if you do have a larger rear hatch, be sure to open it up, make sure we're not going to have any clearance issues there and once you get all that ready to go, we can go ahead and start mounting this down.So when mounting our basket to our vehicle, we do have options, but it all just depends on what you guys have on your guys' vehicle. If you have some arrow bars, whether it's Tooley, Yakima, or whatever, we will have to utilize the T slot and we won't really have to purchase anything else. We do have extra little T slot adapters that come with our basket and you'll just have to just slide those in there and then secure it down that way. If you have some square bars or round bars or pro bars, we will have to grab either the Yakima adapter kit or the Tooley adapter kit. It's going to be pretty much the same thing, just different size U bolts. It's just going to go up and around this and we're going to utilize these brackets to go around our basket.But for today, we're not going to have to do any of that. We're going to utilize our factory raised rails on our Tahoe here. So all we're going to have to do is we just grab some of these from the inventory in our warehouse and it's just going to clamp around those raised rails. So we are going to have two on each side and it's going to be that same exact process we just went over. So now all we really want to do is just make sure we have this black plate on here. We're not going to thread it on all the way, just a little bit. And we want to make sure that the Serco symbol is going to be facing out. We're going to slide that into the T track, like so, following with the fixed plastic T slot as well. And I'll lift up a little bit. And set it down.So now all we need to do is just peel back this little rubber cap and we're going to see a little wheel here, where we'll have a tool that comes with our kit, and we're going to turn it clockwise. And what that's going to do, it's going to clamp these feet together onto your bars. I'm going to give it a couple turns here. Feel a little bit of resistance. And get it nice and tight. And then you can go ahead and just put that cap back on. So now all we need to do is just put our caps on. So, as you can see, we do have a little bit longer arms up top here and that's going to fit into these slots. So we're just going to have to put it like so. And it is a pretty tight fit, so you might have to maneuver it around a little bit to get it into place. And we're going to do that same exact thing for all four of our sides.Well everyone, I really hope this video helped maybe answer some of those questions that you may have. Again, this is the Serco Safari Rooftop Cargo Basket.

I've had this rack on my 1995 Grand Cherokee and it's still great. Paint has finally started peeling but count the years to 2018 and it's been at 6000 feet in sun all that time! These roof racks by Surco are the impossible combination; light and sturdy. This longer version is going on my 4x4 full size expedition Van. The box arrived quickly, and it's a precision fit together. However, like all roof rack baskets, they show a set of floor slats that are not part of the kit and no disclaimer about it. Just because the others are doing that sort of misleading marketing doesn't mean they have to. I would like more floor options, like a chain link fence which could be rolled for easy shipping or expanded metal. I would also like color options, I need this one in white, so I'll have to paint it. etrailer got right on this order and it arrived earlier than I expected.

Review from a similar Safari Rack 5.0 in Roof Basket


Works great, sits low is almost as wide as my renegade, doesn't weigh much but is plenty sturdy, doesn't make an unreasonable amount of wind noise and make a great mount for off-road lights take the time to read and measure to install it correctly and it sits stable hasn't moved in close to 10,000 miles after the initial install and tightening, also a great way to move tough bulky items out of a limited interior compartment, like highlight Jack's and other weather proof off-road essentials

Review from a similar Safari Rack 5.0 in Roof Basket


I have had this rack on my Ford Excursion for a full year now. I go whitewater kayaking about every weekend and they fit in the rack very nicely. I bought a 4'x8' sheet of expanded steel mesh for a floor, cut it to length, painted it with truck bed liner, and fastened it to the cross bars with sheet metal screws so I wouldn't have to worry about balancing on the cross bars while loading and tying down gear. This summer we went to from TN to CO with 3 boats stuffed full of gear on top, and it handled them with ease. Get the folding ladder to make loading and unloading a breeze!

Thank you. I have had the product installed and I must say the wind noise it creates is very shrill and causes my ears to ring long after I have stopped driving. Is there a wind deflector for this product ? ??????


Comments
Unfortunately, any object installed on a vehicle roof is going to cause some wind turbulence, this is unavoidable. Surco doesnt offer a wind deflector at this time, Im sorry to say.

  • Could the Surco Safari Rack 5.0 Rooftop Cargo Basket Carry Hay Bales
    As long as the roof of your vehicle has the capacity for the 4-5 bales of hay you would be good. You will want to check the owners manual of your vehicle to determine the roof capacity and then figure out how much your hay bales weigh. This rack is designed to be installed on a Thule roof rack. In my experience I've seen square bales weight from 35-70 lbs. For some ratchet straps to secure the hay you might also be interested in the Erickson Ratchet Straps part # 58503.

    I checked with Surco and they list Safari Rack # SPS5084-1101 as the proper fit for your 2007 Chevy Suburban. This version comes with adapters to attach the basket to the factory side rails on your Suburban. Side rails run front to back. The basket does not attach to crossbars that run side to side. As for the different sizes available with the correct adapters the 50 inch width will be needed for a proper fit but there is # SPS5060-1101 at 60 inches long. Another option for most...

Thule square bars measure 1-1/4 inches wide and 7/8 of an inch tall. If these specs match the dimensions on your Transit's Ford factory square crossbars then the basket will work great.
