Well done Yakima and etrailer. Great product and great service. The product is well made (in Taiwan....not China) and the parts and instruction video made it relatively" easy to install. Two people helps to install it more readily. The wind diffuser in the front greatly reduces wind noise. All in all very happy and glad I bought through etrailer. Service was excellent and delivery prompt.



Great product!! Went through the winter with no hiccups. Recommended.


Exceeded all of my expectations. Looks great. Best thing about the LoadWarrior is the fact that it turns heads sitting on top of my truck!


I am very happy with both the initial quality of the Load Warrior and how nice the eTrailer people are to deal with...
The product seems well thought out and there are a bunch of accessories to mount most anything...

Excellent! ive used it and the bike mount many times...


I’m really impressed with the Load Warrior. The instructions were clear and assembling it was straightforward. The hardest part for me was putting the fairing on, but after that it was smooth sailing. I put it together and installed it by myself. Having a second person probably would have made it easier when it came to putting it on the car, but it wasn’t bad.

The basket is really sturdy and I love how it looks. The fairing can fold forward / lay flat in case you’re carrying long skinny cargo. I purchased the locking brackets for added security.


Looks and fits well on my '13 Crosstrek. Overall build quality and ease of installation met my expectations. The folks at "exceeded" my expectations! Prompt service and excellent follow-up! Keep up the great work!

Happy with the product and your company. Will buy again from your company for my next product and vehicle related need.


Ordered Yakima Load Warrior Roof Rack Cargo Carrier and Cargo Net for my 2021 Telluride. Both products received as described. Roof rack instructions were clear and assembly straightforward. Had to slightly adjust recommended spacing between OEM crossbars to accommodate Yakima requirements - 30" vs 33". Thinness of OEM crossbars result in the threaded ends of the bolts that hold on support brackets sitting a little too high, potentially presenting a cargo scratching hazard. All in all, however, very pleased with product.


Excellent Product! Went together easily, and after adjusting my Yakima round bars to the correct distance apart, the LoadWarrior mounted perfectly.


I like the design of the basket. It' sturdy, but not built too heavy. I attached it to a Thule roof rack system. Installation was easy, and it makes for a very solid cargo carrying assembly.


Excellent product, well made and easy to install. etrailer shipped promptly, tracking provided with follow up emails. Highly recommended!


The etrailer website was easy to navigate. The prices were good. The rack shipped almost instantly and was at my door before I knew it. The rack arrived in perfect condition and installed easily on my JSW. This was an excellent on-line purchasing experience. Thanks etrailer!


One year of driving with this thing on the roof of our 2016 toyota sienna in Washington state - Some background: Our van is awd and didn't come with a spare, so we bought one off another van, and we carry it on the roof since there is nowhere to mount it in the undercarriage. We haven't used it to carry anything else. Our van is kept in our garage, but it still sees plenty of rain.

We haven't had any rust problems that the cheaper carriers have, despite the fact that I didn't do any of the custom caulking/sealing that others have done. We haven't had any rattling at high speeds, or screws coming loose, or anything like that so far. Other than the occasional tightness check, it's been a set it and forget it type of situation.

Downside #1: It hurts gas mileage. Went from 20+ mpg to 19 consistently.
Downside #2: Wind can be both heard and felt at speeds exceeding around 55 mph. I can feel the drag. It's like a sail that picks up every gust of wind and transmits it to your steering wheel. I tried removing the front flat piece but it got even louder and sailier somehow. Having said all that, it's not as bad as it sounds. It's there, but it's not like it's trying to pull you off the road or anything. You get used to it and it doesn't have to constantly be at the front of your mind when driving.

These downsides are not unique to this carrier. I have no experience with other carriers, so I can't say the downsides are better or worse than with others, but my guess it they aren't any worse.

I went with this carrier despite it being much more expensive than cheaper alternatives because I just didn't want the hassle of the rust and other problems that they bring. After a year of no problems (aside from the ones I listed that all carriers have), I do think it was worth the extra cost. I hope this helps you decide.


Easy to install andd mount . Great addition for my subaru forester.


I found the directions confusing, and it was impossible to get though the customer support phone line. When you put the two halves of the cage together, on one side the holes did not line up very well. I tried to screw the screw in anyway and it stripped. The directions were just plain wrong in how far apart the cross bars should be. Mainly, I felt alone in this effect-- there really is no phone customer support with Yakima. Expect to use the chat instead.

You mentioned that when the two halves of the basket were put together that it stripped and that the directions were incorrect in how far apart the cross bars needed to be. I wanted to see if you would be able to send pictures? How far apart are your cross bars, center to center.


Great rack. We will enjoy using it for travels.



Great! We traveled to beach last summer. The roof rack was a good storage place for our gear!


Top notch quality compared to cheaper brands. I ordered on Sunday and had product delivered on Tuesday. Thanks for going above and beyond


Looks nice, relatively easy install, little bit of wind noise.



Durable, no corrosion despite heavy use.


Fast shipping and everything arrived in great shape.




The whole system is awesome! I couldn't be happier. The guys at etrailer were so helpful with everything. Thank you!


Received roof basket quick and in great condition, save for missing one of the tube fastener screws. It was easy to put together and install, although it took me just over an hour to do, but that's mostly because I'm anal. I really like this basket as it seems to sit lower on my factory roof rack than other brands I've seen on the same vehicle (2015 Subaru XTrek), and that makes it look much better (IMHO). It also comes with a wind deflector which was easy to install and Adds to it's appearance. I would highly recommend this product and etrailer to friends and family. Etrailer, please keep up the great work and service your provide, as I find it to be very useful and very much appreciated. Btw: This was not my first order with etrailer, so my experience with them is also based on previous orders, and no I have affiliation with etrailer, I'm just a very happy customer.

The roof rack is holding up as expected. Thanks for the follow up and take care.


I have a Subaru Forester w/o factory racks. I am using a Yakima rack and towers that attach to the factory mounting holes on the roof, so it cannot be moved or adjusted. The LoadWarrior basket does not fit this particular width of the bars. It is at the only possible mounting position and with one clamp centered, the other clamp is not centered on the bar, making it impossible to secure the clamp (the basket to the rack).
I have ordered the extension for the basket to hopefully provide more end to end adjustment so it can be secured to the rack.


I've had the Yakima roof basket on top of my Subaru for a year now and am quite happy with it. I recently drove from southern California to northern and back, a total of 804 miles, and had no problems with excessive noise, that was the only concern I had. I've owned Yakima racks in the past and was familiar with their durabilty.


Installation picture


Arrived quickly in the mail. Well packaged, hight quality product with instructions. Rack will be used on my new tear drop camper. Would buy again!


Customer service was great and answered my questions about quickly. Fits my Acura 2020 RDX with factory roof rails and crossbars, although installation instructions made it appear you had to move your crossbars to 30” apart. You don’t have to move them, just need to make sure basket brackets align with crossbars. Have not driven with it loaded up yet, but so far fits well and looks good.
