This heavy-duty cargo basket is great for campers, families, and anyone who wants to free up space in their compact car or sedan. You can use it to carry luggage, camping gear, and other oversize gear, or use it to keep wet or soiled items out of your vehicle's interior. The stylish design looks great - even when you aren't carrying anything - so you can feel confident leaving it on your vehicle all year long. There is also a 12" section (sold separately) that you can add if you want to increase the carrying capacity.

Wind Fairing

Cargo Basket Fairing

The wind fairing attaches on the front slope to redirect air up and over the basket. This helps reduce drag and wind noise. The fairing can be removed if you need to increase space for transporting lumber, skies, and other long cargo.

Easy Installation

etrailer Basket On Car

The basket has universal mounting hardware that fits most crossbar styles, and the hardware adjusts to accommodate most crossbar spreads.

Cargo Basket on Vehicle

You can position the hardware anywhere along the bottom of the basket to match your crossbar spread. This lets you place the basket dead-center on your crossbars to keep it from overhanging the front or rear of your roof. The hardware easily clamps to the basket's bottom rails.


To install the basket, set it on top of your crossbars with the top brackets already attached. Insert the bolts through the holes in the top bracket and thread them into the bottom bracket. Use the included Allen key to tighten the bolts until snug.

Add-On Extension


The add-on extension is perfect if you have a growing family, or if you are upgrading to a larger vehicle. Bolt the extension in between the front and rear pieces to create a longer basket to carry more gear.

Cargo Basket FairingExtensions Separated

You can add 1 extension to make the basket 12" longer, or you can add 2 extensions if you need to carry even more gear or kayak paddles and other long items. To add an extension, loosen the bolts on the bottom of the basket with the included Allen wrench and remove the front of the basket. Slide the ends of the extension into the bars of the basket and re-secure the front of the basket to the extension.

I wanted to let you know the etrailer I purchased worked great; that is, once we got it installed. However, putting it together was a problem....on one side of the car the two baskets holes for the screws would not align. We worked on the baskets for quite some time to align the holes for the screws. My husband and I gave up and used a drill to open up the holes for the screws to fit in. Then before we finished tightening the brackets to attach the basket to the racks it took quite a while to adjust the basket to make it "relatively even" in its placement corner to corner. Once installed the product worked just fine and it travelled without a noise. I laughed at how easy the video showed it to be in attaching it to the roof. You should try a random sample yourself and see how easy it is to assemble, before you get it to the point of where the video starts. Maybe you will be fortunate and get one where the holes align. Therefore, I can not recommend this product to my friends. 804901

It was a bear to get a couple of the windscreen bolts into their nuts—maybe because I mounted the screen so that the logo wasn't on the outside. Now, I've got to find something to cover the logo on the plastic pieces, too. 800082

Very happy with this product. Arrived on time, good tracking along the way. Seems to be excellent quality, exactly as described. Easy to put together per included instructions. I appreciated the detailed specs on the website. What really sold me on etrailer was the excellent video that showed without a doubt this basket would fit on my Outback and would be straightforward to attach to the roof rack (although have not put it on yet). 782509

  • How to Lock etrailer Roof Basket # e98914 to Roof Rack Crossbars
    The best way to lock the etrailer roof basket part # e98914 you referenced to a set of crossbars is with a cable lock like the # 8291DPS. I like this lock because it's shorter at 3 feet and has a padded cable which would protect the paint of the vehicle roof and the bars of the basket.

If you're wanting to use it for more than just rooftop carrying, a cargo box isn't what you want either even though it will be more secure.

That said, there are a number of similar, budget-friendly roof baskets that fit the Thule AeroBlade (and WingBar Evo) crossbars.

    I have a recommendation, but the Thule Canyon XT # TH859XT is not my first choice for carrying lumber mainly because of the wind fairing and the size. While the basket can be expanded to 70" long with the extension piece # TH8591XT, that is still not long enough for your lumber, and you'd have to load it at an angle, because of the lip where the wind fairing is at the front. For lumber-carrying baskets, I prefer the etrailer Medium Cargo Basket # e98914. You can remove the front wind-fairing...
