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.

by: King07/11/2022

Product was damaged in multiple spots. The outer or larger diameter tube was severely damaged (pinched) and required prying the pinch to place the smaller tube in for complete installation. The entire 'driver' side of the basket has sever dents and scratches.
Would request that the carrier be more careful with large bulky products as I've seen (and own) the result of carelessness and negligence with my shipped products.
Love Yakima!!! Wish I had a nice (no dents or scratches) basket, but I guess it looks more 'rugged'

Easy to install, direct to the Yakima Aero bars. Unfortunately had to buy clamps for tools from another source, but the rack is great!

by: David 12/31/2022

Item assembled easy and shipping was fast and communication was excellent!!!

by: Danny02/23/2022

This product fit and application I needed has been outstanding. I have taken several trips since acquiring and it works perfect. Excellent to stack additional equipment and secure. Highly recommend if you want to pack extra equipment and secure to drive down and interstate or off road.

I was disappointed in the quality of the mega warrior. It was defective and I had to correct it. Did not expect a $xxx. Roof carrier too have issues. It was like buying a $xxx. Roof carrier.
The tube was pinched and would not connect. I had to spread the tube with needle nose pliers so it would connect. Called and reported it.
Would think twice about buying another Yakima product.

Installation on a 2004 Chevrolet Avalanche was simple and trouble free. Took about 20 minutes. Instructions that come with the product are well-written.

by: Thomas 07/27/2020

Very pleased with the Yakima roof Rack! It looks great on our 4Runner! eTrailer's customer service was excellent. We received the item sooner than expected and in perfect condition. Happy we ordered from as the competitor we were going to order from had a 30 day wait before shipping. We will definitely use again!

Perfect fit. Clear directions. Easy i nstallation.

by: Frank03/30/2019

The website had the best information including video to allow me to really drill down and figure out which basket I needed to fit all my needs. Went with the Megawarrior by Yakima and it’s perfect. After watching the tutorials it was a snap assembling and installing it. Thanks for all the help and making it easy to pick as well as purchase!

by: Bob F10/23/2014

Good guilty product. Would make two changes, installed on a 2010 Suburban. Mounting bolts where too long stuck up above bottom of rack had to shorten them as will be hauling water and fuel cans. Cross bar has Allen mounting bolts,not easily adjusted to load.

Quick ship and on time.

Product looked great on my 2011 tahoe, perfect size. Videos were very helpful.Shipped quickly Everybody was very helpful that I dealt with. Will definitely use etrailer again.

by: George 04/28/2020

Tried to purchase this item locally, but was more expensive, and I had to order it. Really like your many videos on do it yourself projects and products. Thanks and keep up the good work.

by: Newell11/09/2019

Computer ordering was clear & worked very well. Shipping was 'e' noticed, tracking was easy, dellvery was fast, all the parts and clear plain English assembly instructions were enclosed. My personal assembly was possible (am not mechanical at all) and all parts fit. Looks & fits good on my Jeep Wrangler. Item is on the high end of price, but is equally on the high end of quality. I'm a very satisfied customer! Thanks "etrailer"! Thanks Yakima !

The rack is nicely made and installs easily and quickly. What's amazing is the etrailer service. It's always fun to find another of the seemingly few companies who are trying to it it as well as it can be done. I believe my rack shipped before we were finished talking about it. I hope to find something else to buy from these folks.

Loved dealing with Everything shipped on time and was received in good condition. Emails were timely and kept me up to date.

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.

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.

by: Joshua10/13/2022

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.

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!

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.

by: Cyndy_Roo06/17/2018

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.

by: Mel P.06/09/2020

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

by: Mike H.04/17/2011

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.

by: Margaret07/24/2022

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.

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

by: Bob L03/19/2015

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.

by: Adam05/22/2013

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

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!

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.

by: Johnny L.11/05/2016

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.

Great rack, easy to assemble and install. Very happy with the purchase. Just be aware that there will be significant wind noise increase noticeable from inside the vehicle. Not a product fault but a byproduct to consider.

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.

  • Yakima Y07070 LoadWarrior Versus Thule TH859XT Canyon XT Cargo Basket on 2015 Subaru Outback
  • Given the choice, I'd recommend the Thule Canyon XT, part # TH859XT for several reasons. -The Canyon basket at 49 x 40 is larger than 44 x 39 the # Y07070 LoadWarrior. -The Canyon's fairing on it's leading edge is at a sharper angle than that of the LoadWarrior for better aerodynamics and less wind noise. -The curved sides of the Canyon provide a more modern, refined look. -The mounts for the Canyon will slide fore and aft on rails, allowing it to fit crossbar spreads from 20-37 inches,...
