Expert Answers about Rola

  • Carrying Two Kayaks on Bare Vehicle Roof
  • Assuming that the kayaks are narrow enough width-wise to safely fit on the roof of the vehicle, using two foam block carriers like part # SR5525 would be an option as long as the combined weight of the kayaks doesn't exceed the roof capacity of the vehicle. This option is designed to be used on a vehicle with a bare roof, and the straps that hold the kayaks to the roof will pass through the passenger compartment, the doors will need to be closed on the straps. This arrangement has two drawbacks....

  • Roof Rack Compatible with 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport with Panoramic Sun Roof
  • If your Santa Fe does not have factory-installed flush side rails that run front to back on your roof (and I believe that it does not have these) you can select the Rola Roof Rack for the 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport with Panoramic Sunroof, part # 59779. If your Santa Fe Sport does in fact have the factory-installed roof rails that run front to back on your roof, then you can use the Rola Roof Rack, part # 59766, which is intended for vehicles that do have the factory installed roof...

  • Can Any Cargo Baskets be Directly Mounted to Factory Side Rails of 2012 Nissan Pathfinder
  • There are some large rooftop cargo baskets that can mount to your roof side rails without the need for crossbars. Surco offers their 60 x 50 x 5 inch # SPS5060-1101, which weighs 34 lbs, and the 50 x 45 x 5 inch version # SPS4550-1101, which weighs 32 lbs. I have included a link to our department page for all of our cargo baskets where you can see offerings from ten different brands. Most other roof baskets require crossbars for their installation. Since you plan to transport a significant...

  • Do Lights have to be Added to a Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier
  • Basically, in any state in the union, if the rear license plate or lights are obscured in any way, a police officer can pull you over, regardless of the specific verbiage of the laws. Beyond that it is just a good idea to add lights for safey. For the Rola cargo carrier # 59502 you can use light kit # 20174. In order to use the lights your vehicle will need to have a 4-Way trailer connector. If your 2012 Toyota Highlander does not have a trailer connector you can use # 118449. I have...

  • Roof Cargo Carrying Options that Do Not Use a Roof Rack
  • All of the cargo baskets and boxes we offer are meant to attach to crossbars that are first installed on the truck. We do not offer any baskets or boxes that would mount directly to the roof surface. We do offer some roof mounted cargo bags like the Rightline Sport1, part # RL100S10. Although these cargo bags work best with crossbars or a cargo basket, they can be mounted directly to the roof and the mounting straps run through the cab to hold the bag in place. Keep in mind that the...

  • Is There A Roof Rack Available To Mount To My Fiberglass Tonneau Cover
  • I do have a solution for you to mount a roof rack to your tonneau cover, but the item you selected, Rola Roof Rack, part # 59833, will not work. What you can use is the Rhino Rack Roof Rack, part # Y02-490, which is designed to attach to tonneau covers. Then you could use the Rhino Rack Roof Cargo Carrier, part # RLBM-U. However, you will be limited to load carrying capacity of your tonneau cover. You will need to contact your tonneau cover manufacturer for the load capacity of your...

  • Will Other Brands of Roof Rack Accessories Fit on Rola Racks With Elliptical T-Slot Crossbars
  • Rola T-Slot equipped crossbars are intended for Rola accessories but will also work with other brands of similar roof-rack-mount accessories. Since the different brands do not test with each others products there may be instances where a particular T-slot accessory from one maker may not work ideally with the Rola crossbars, but usually we find that these similar systems are compatible. I have included a photo of a Rola T-Slot crossbar showing the dimensions of the slot, which are 0.83...

  • Is it Permissible to Drive with Rola Dart Cargo Carrier # 59550 Folded Up in the Storage Position
  • It is permissible to drive with the Rola Dart Cargo Carrier, part # 59550, folded up in the storage position as long as it does not block the vehicle license plate or tail lights. The carrier includes license plate relocation holes to let you reposition the plate if necessary. It also includes mounting locations for a lighting kit (part # 20174) if the carrier should block your vehicle tail lights, as well as an anti-rattle hitch pin and clip. The lighting kit will require that your vehicle...

  • You are correct you will not need to permanently modify your 2010 Mazda 5 to install the Rola Extended Series Roof Rack with APE Mounting System, part # 59834. I have attached a link to the instructions for you to check out. You will need to remove the anchor point covers and then replace them with the included rubber pads. Place one of the end-supports on the rubber pads, and then insert the 40 millimeter bolt through the end support and rubber gasket. I attached a drawing detailing...

  • Comparing Rola and Pro Series Cargo Carriers for a 2009 Toyota Highlander
  • The Pro Series carrier # 63153 is a great value. The steel mesh floor of this basket has smaller opening compared to the Rola carriers, # 59502 and # 59550 so it is less likely to allow something to fall through. If you will not be using the carrier very often then I would go with the Pro Series carrier all the way. It can be fitted with light kit # 20174. The middle ground is Rola carrier # 59502. This basket is a little higher quality than the Pro Series but lacks the razzle dazzle...

  • Yes, the Rola Roof Rack # 59636, the you referenced in your question is a confirmed fit for your 2017 Subaru Forester without the factory side rails. This roof rack has a low-profile design and along with the elliptical crossbar design makes the Rola rack aerodynamic. The aerodynamic design will cut down on wind drag and noise will the vehicle is in transit.

  • If your 2014 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport has no existing crossbars, the Rola Sport Extended Series Roof Rack, part # 59834 will work for you. I have attached a drawing from the instructions that shows how the Rola Rack mounts to your vehicle roof. If your Outlander has factory side rails installed I recommend the Thule AeroBlade Roof Rack System. This system has three part numbers. They are Part # THARB47, part # TH460R, and part # THKIT4017. This would be the complete kit to install...

  • Raising a Trailer Hitch Mount Cargo Carrier Out of Exhaust Path on a Buick Enclave
  • On any vehicle that has exhaust that exits straight out the back and not out the side or towards the ground could potentially damage a trailer hitch mounted item and its contents. I believe I have a great solution for you though. To get enough distance from the exhaust you can use multipurpose ball mount # D210 and that will get you plenty far from the exhaust. For a carrier, if using the multipurpose ball mount, you can use any carrier that fits a 2 inch receiver. The receiver portion...

  • Inside Tray Dimensions for the Rola Cargo Dart Cargo Carrier
  • I spoke to my contact at Rola and he informed me that the inside measurement of the floor of the Rola Dart Cargo Carrier # 59550 that you referenced is 595550 is 23 by 56 inches. Check out the picture I attached to see these measurements.

  • Weight and Capacity of Rola # 59507 Cargo Carrier
  • Although the basket has a 300 lb capacity, you'll be limited by whichever component of your towing system has the lowest capacity, whether it be the carrier or the hitch. Take a look at the sticker on your hitch. If the hitch is a Class I, you'll likely have a 200 lb tongue weight capacity, which means the downward force or weight applied to the hitch could not exceed 200 lbs. This would mean that the combined weight of the carrier (about 60 lbs) and the weight of whatever's carried...

  • Will Rola Dart Clamp-On Fork Mount Bike Carrier Fit Any Rola Carrier
  • Yes, the Rola Dart Clamp-On Fork Mount Bike Carrier, part # 59904 that you picked will fit Rola cargo carriers that have a rail diameter of 1 inch or less. We pulled the Rola 23 x 56 inch carrier # 59502 and put 2 adult road bikes as well as a 15 pound propane tank on this carrier. Attached is a picture of your requested items loaded on a Rola carrier. We did have to angle the bikes slightly to fit the propane tank, however, angling the bikes did not impeded the fastening process. There...

  • Size of Rola TuffBak Rainproof Cargo Bag When Folded
  • The Rola # 59119 folds up a lot more than you'd think it would. The box that it ships in measures about 10 inches by 10 inches and about 4 inches tall. It would be hard to get it folded that tight again I'm sure (Things never go back in the box the way they came in for me) but it definitely folds up nicely.

  • Does the Rola Railed Cargo Carrier, # 59507 Have a Solid Shank and What Anti-Rattle Device Will Fit
  • I spoke with my contact at Rola and he stated that the Railed Cargo Carrier, # 59507, has a solid shank. You can still use an anti-rattle device with a solid shank accessory. I recommend the No-Rattle Trailer Hitch Wedge, # 93347. I have included a video review of this anti-rattle device below.

  • Recommended Roof Rack For 2015 Honda CR-V With Naked Roof
  • We do have a roof rack that will work for your 2015 Honda CR-V. What we have found is that you cannot have factory side rails added to a vehicle after it has been delivered but we have a solution for you. I recommend the Rhino-Rack Vortex Roof Rack. This features anodized aluminum aerodynamic crossbars with a rubberized Vortex strip in the crossbar top channel to disrupt airflow for a quiet ride. Along with the crossbars the system uses the Series 2500 Legs that include locks to secure...

  • Preventing Bike Wheels From Spinning When Carried on Hitch-Mounted Bike Rack
  • You can use a strap like the Thule Tie-Down Strap, part # 753-2030-03 to secure the front wheel to the frame of the bike or the bike rack to prevent it from turning or spinning. Also when carrying womens, childrens, or alternative frame bicycles, I would recommend using the Swagman Frame Bike Adapter Bar, part # 64005. This will allow you to carry those types of bikes level on your bike rack. I have included some links to instructions and videos for you.

I have included a video that shows the functions of this carrier box, an installation video, and a link to installation directions.

  • Recommended Roof Rack for a 2014 Kia Soul with Panoramic Sunroof
  • The Rola roof rack # 59789 is best utilized with the 2014 Kia Soul that has no existing rails or crossbars (a naked roof). If your 2014 Kia Soul has existing rails or crossbars, I recommend Thule AeroBlade # THARB47. They are very sturdy, quiet and aerodynamic. The Thule foot pack # TH450R has rubber coated steel clamping straps to provide maximum security and strength. There isn't any confirmed roof racks that work with panoramic sunroofs unless the vehicle has existing raised...
