Today on our 2016 Volkswagen Jetta we're taking a look at the Rhino Rack Roofmounted Cargo Basket. That part number is RMCB. This is 47 inches long by 35 inches wide and has a weight capacity of 165 pounds. You do want to check your vehicles owner's manual to make sure your vehicle can withstand that much weight, but as far as the basket it can withstand 165 pounds. We already have three of our four clamps secured down. We've got part of our back secured down, we're going to show you how to secure the rest of it. We'll move around to the backhand side.

This is 49 by 40 by 6 inches, has a weight capacity of 150 pounds and the part number for that is TH859XT. Now, keep in mind, with that weight capacity, you do want to check your vehicle's owners manual to make sure that the vehicle can withstand that much weight. We already have three of our four mounts down in place. We've got both of our front ones and our back passenger's side. We're going to show you our driver's side now. We've gone ahead and adjusted each of our plates here, or our brackets.



Inno Roof Box Review - 2013 Volkswagen Jetta

AJ: What's up everybody, it's AJ with etrailer.com. Today we're going to be checking out the Inno Wedge Plus rooftop box on this 2013 Volkswagen Jetta. It's going to be a great way to get all that gear out of your vehicle and up on the roof. That way it gives everybody more leg room on the inside, makes for everybody happier on a trip. So, right away I want to say that it's made out of ABS plastic so it's nice and durable, you can hear it. Even thicker here on the bottom, you can hear kind of a lower toned knock.



Yakima Roof Basket Review - 2013 Volkswagen Jetta

Andy: Hello everyone. Andy here with etrailer. And today we're going to go over the Yakima Off-grid Roof Cargo Basket on our 2013 Volkswagen Jetta. Having a smaller vehicle such as a Jetta, whether you have extra cargo or you have passengers and cargo, you need an option between a roof basket or a cargo box to have on top of your vehicle. Here with the roof basket, you have the option to put that cargo, whether you're going on a long trip, camping trip, road trip, and you have some luggage or other types of items, this is going to be a lot easier to use other than a cargo box sitting on top. It's much easier to get everything in and out and load it up quick and unloaded quickly as well.One thing that you want to check when it comes to how much weight and load that this basket can really hold is going to be based on not only your vehicle's specifications on what they require, but also the load that the bars that you're going to be mounting it on it that can hold as well.



etrailer Medium Roof Cargo Basket Review - 2013 Volkswagen Jetta

Andy: Hello everyone, Andy with etrailer, and today we're going to look at the etrailer medium-sized cargo basket on our 2013 Volkswagen Jetta.One of the main reasons to have a cargo basket mounted to the roof of your vehicle, this vehicle, the Jetta, being a little bit on the smaller side, you're going to need more space for passengers or for extra cargo as well. So having the option to have it roof-mounted is one way to go.This specific basket allows up to 165 pounds to be loaded into it. Just to keep in mind, this basket alone, just itself, is going to weigh almost 30 pounds, so you need to make sure that the weight capacity that your bars can handle doesn't exceed those two. These bars specifically can hold up to 220 pounds, so we've got a little bit of room to work with.One thing we want to keep in mind is the clearance that we have from the bars to the top of the roof basket. Right now, we have anywhere between 8 and 8 1/2 inches at its peak point.One thing with this specific cargo basket, we have multiple tie-down points in order to keep that cargo that's going to be loaded secure. It is made out of steel, very, very durable, and it's also powder-coated in black, and that's going to keep it corrosive resistant, whenever you're driving in the elements or whenever you're loading things that might happen to nick it, scratch it.



Inno Roof Box Review - 2013 Volkswagen Jetta

Zack: Hi everybody, is Zack here at etrailer.com. Today, we're taking a look at the INNO rooftop cargo box on a 2013 Volkswagen Jetta. This is going to be a really nice streamline aerodynamic design. It's going to give us nine cubic feet. The thing about nine cubic feet, that's essentially adding a little less than the trunk that's on our Jetta. So we're going to get a decent amount of space.



Trunx Roof Box Review - 2013 Volkswagen Jetta

Zach: Hey everybody, Zach here at etrailer.com. Today, we're going to be taking a look at the Trunx nine cubic foot rooftop cargo box on our 2013 Volkswagen Jetta. It's going to be a really nice, easy to use cargo box. I like that it's a more cost effective option, if you're looking to get a little bit more protection on top of your roof, versus something like a cargo basket, or a hitch-mounted cargo carrier. But it's going to lack a few features of some of the higher end ones, but I was actually pleasantly surprised when I took this one out. I hit some rain, and didn't have any issues with it.It's pretty easy to install.



Curt Hitch Cargo Carrier Review - 2012 Volkswagen Jetta

Today we have a 2012 Volkswagen Jetta and well be test fitting the Curt 20 x 48 Cargo Carrier part number C18145. To mount the cargo carrier on our vehicle, well take the shank of the cargo carrier and fit it into the receiver on our hitch. Well line up the hitch pinholes and then well thread our anti-rattle bolt. Well use the inch wrench to tighten it down and secure our cargo carrier. Well use a clip on the other side of the pin to make sure the pin does not back all the way out. Make sure to keep in mind the location of the vehicle exhaust when loading the cargo carrier.
