Carry big loads and mount accessories directly to the crossbars of this MegaWarrior roof rack cargo basket. The versatile, heavy-duty steel basket hauls anything from bikes to boats and comes with a custom fairing and a movable accessory bar.


Roof rack arrived dented and scratched which complicated the installation because I had to hammer out dents to get the pipes to fit. Apart from that, the paint/coating scratches off fairly easily and the installation design is pretty awful. Instead of threading the pipe to accept screws they have this complicated plastic gasket mechanism which takes forever to align. I expected more from Yakima and for the price. Quick delivery from etrailer and good fit overall-- just need to wait and see about rust.

I am sorry to see that your cargo carrier has received some scratches on it. Paint chips do tend to happen and when it does, we recommend using a Rust-oleum type paint to cover up any scratches and prevent corrosion in the future during use. I have given your information over to our customer service department for them to help you further. I have a link below for your reference.

Initial quality was excellent and assembly a snap. Finding a roof basket that wouldn't look like a tiny hat on a Jeep Commander was difficult, but the MegaWarrior is perfect! Assembly and mounting took less than an hour and it looks great. Now it just needs to be outfitted with a set of off-road lights. ;-)


Quality materials and construction. Assembly and installation was a breeze. I highly recommend this product to others. Would buy again.

Fantastic I highly recommend this product to other buyers.

Wow !!!! Excellent service and very fast shipping. I bought the Yakima Megawarrior cargo basket with the Thule Aeroblade roof rack and the Carpod walled folding cargo basket. I love the way these parts fit as well as the cargo carrying capacity. I really can’t say enough about trailer customer service and shipping they really do place value in their customers. Would highly recommend using this company for your part needs !!!


Product was exactly what you would expect from a reputable company such as Yakima. Fit an finish was spot on. I was happy to go with the megawarrior instead of the loadwarrior seeing as of how well the megawarrior flows with my 4Runner body lines.


So far, so good.

I originally
ordered the Curt basket, which is cheaper. But it turns out it wouldn't fit on my Xterra's factory bars (even though the Curt website shows it on an Xterra, unfastened!)

Also the Curt instructions say their basket is not meant for permanent installation -- I guess it's like a clamshell you put on for a trip and take off after. Not what I wanted.

This Yakima fits the wide, oval Xterra factory bars -- just barely, but it's secure. I like that because I was trying to minimize height.

I installed it myself; just lifted it over my head and walked it on, no problem.

It's big, especially with the extension, but I figured as long as I'm putting one on, I might as well make it as useful as possible. Cost about the same, on sale, as the smaller LoadWarrior.

I could mount my old bike racks on it, as shown. (I have a trailer so a rear mount doesn't work.) But after I knocked a bike off going through the drive-thru at Burger King I decided I'm just going to lay the bikes flat and strap them down. Until they invent bike radar.

Etrailer service was excellent, as usual.


The package was a little roughed up when it arrived. When I opened it, I found that the extension section for my Yakima MegaWarrior XL basket was a little bent. I was concerned, but everything seemed to fit together okay with a little elbow grease, so I'll just chalk it up to ordering by mail. I would not be surprised if the damage occurred during shipping rather than on the etrailer end. I was also missing one little screw/washer combination for the installation. I contacted etrailer and they have promised to send me some replacement hardware, so that's fine too (I've got an equivalent sized screw in there now, but it's galvanized rather than black, as the rest of them are, so I will replace as soon as the kit gets here.) Overall I'm very pleased with my rack. I think it looks great, and I'm going to use it soon on a road trip to Colorado. My plan is to put all my luggage up top so I can have some space for my dog in back of my SUV. The folks at etrailer have been responsive and helpful, so I'm pleased with them too and happy to submit this review. (Note: At one point I was a little exasperated with the slow response time from etrailer; however, I later discovered that I HAD received a response, only it was trapped in my email program's spam filter. Note to self: check spam filter!)


Provides adequate additional luggage sp ace.


Easy to install and looks great with the extension. Bit of wind noise but not unexpected.


Installed on Yukon XL for camping materials...chairs, grill, camp blocking, storage bins well built provides plenty of room for items you do not want to place inside vehicle used four cross bars for mounting and support tough look very satisfied


Only had this on a few day, but have found many the rack and so far so good!


Yakima racks are great! My only complaint has been with the limited amount of accessories for Overlanding.


They had the rack I needed, in stock, and at a great price. Shipping was free, quick, and easy to track. Item arrived well packaged and undamaged. So what's not to like?

The rack is fine, no problems. But then again its only a year old. Had one on my Jeep for 14 years now, all I do is give it a fresh coat of Rustoleum every few years...

I've had the mega warrior about a year on top of my van. Performing flawlessly!


Got the product I ordered today. There was a long delay on the manufacturers end but the group at etrailer kept me informed the whole time and were always accessible by phone. I was very pleased with the way they handeled the sale. No hesitation ordering from them again.


I have used these people now twice. I absolutely love their customer service! I love how easy their website is and the helpful videos they have with them. This is so rare to have a company put so much information that is easily accessible out there for customers to make good decisions and informative decisions on what they're purchasing.

If you haven't done business with these people yet, do it! You won't be sorry!


Went together easily
Seems like excellent


Rack is well made and assembly is easy.


The correct product arrived very quickly in perfect new condition.




Purchase, shipping were excellent and far exceeded my expectations. Thx!


High quality product.



Review from a similar MegaWarrior in Roof Basket

Took a few months to get because covid-19 slowed production but worth the wait. It's awsome

Love roof rack no problems looks great would highly recommend.

Review from a similar MegaWarrior in Roof Basket

The MegaWarrior is a great Roof Rack. The only thing I didn’t like was the fit to the roof rails. My rails that I purchased from you are shaped like aircraft wings and the basket clamps seem to be designed for round rails. However I was able to complete the attachment and the rack remained secure for a 2,000 mile trip.
