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....

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Best Low Profile Roof Rack and Best Roof Bike Rack for a 2018 GMC Yukon
  • The Rola Sport REX Series Roof Rack # 59685 is a great roof rack but I have a different recommendation for you. The highest weight capacity roof rack that we have is from Rhino-Rack with a 220 lb weight capacity. Typically vehicles do not have roof weight ratings this high so you probably wouldn't be able to max it out anyways. I recommend going with the Thule AeroBlade Edge, parts # TH7604B-TH7604B and # THKIT4041 for black or parts # TH7604-TH7604 and # THKIT4041 for silver, for a...

  • 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...

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2017 Ford Explorer with Raised Rails
  • I have a similar solution for your 2017 Ford Explorer, but the Rola rack you mentioned will not fit your 2017 Ford Explorer. Instead you'd want the Rhino Rack kit part numbers # RRVA137B-2, # RRVA-FK2-2, and # RRRLCP45. This is an aero bar kit that is designed specifically to fit the factory raised rails of your 2017 Ford Explorer and would be a great option.

  • 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...

  • Attaching a Kayak Carrier to a Rooftop Basket on a 2018 Subaru Forester
  • I have a potential solution for you, however, the Rola Cargo Basket, part # 59504 is not able to have traditional roof rack accessories like the Yakima EvenKeel, part # Y04052 mounted on top of it. Instead, I recommend the Yakima LoadWarrior, part # Y07070, a cargo basket actually designed with using accessories on it in mind. The front and rear bars of this carrier are actually Yakima's standard roof rack bars, and will let you mount the EvenKeel directly to the basket. You will need...

  • 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.

  • Is The Rola Cargo Bag, # 59100, Waterproof Or Weatherproof And Will It Work In The Rain
  • A roof cargo bag like the Rola Platypus Cargo Bag, # 59100, is weather resistant construction, which means it will protect the contents from the rain and other bad weather conditions. It has hook and loop seals that are made to cover the zippered areas for the added protection against water and dirt. It is not waterproof because to be considered as waterproof the bag would have to be submerged under water and have no leakage into the inside. Since the cargo bags have zippers and straps...

  • Which Cargo Net will Work Best on a Rola Roof Mounted Cargo Basket
  • Rola makes a net, part # 59200, that should work very well with the Rola Roof Basket. I have added a link to it below as well as a video review of the net. SportRack also makes a net for their roof basket that should fit the Rola Roof Basket quite nicely as well. The SportRack net is part # A21033, see the link below.

  • Availability of Roof Rack System with 72 Inch Crossbars for 2015 Honda CR-V to Carry 2 Canoes
  • The longest load bars our manufacturers recommend with your vehicle are 58 inches long. You could go with a Thule roof rack system, parts # THLB50, # TH460, # THKIT3118 and substitute the 50 inch square bars for a pair of 78 inch bars like # THLB78 (there are no 72 inch bars available). However, we do not recommend you use crossbars that extend out farther than the widest part of your vehicle, which is usually the mirrors. For a canoe carrier I recommend Thule Portage Canoe Carrier #...

  • Recommended Cargo Net to Use with Rola Roof Mounted Cargo Basket
  • To secure your cargo on the Rola Roof Mounted Cargo Basket # 59504 referenced in your question, the Rola Flat Strap Cargo Net # 59200 will work perfectly. This 36 inch x 48 inch (unstretched) cargo net is designed to work with baskets just like this one and will do a great job of holding your cargo on the basket, and doing so without damaging sensitive or fragile items. It features wide hook openings to fit a variety of racks and strong, injection molded hooks that will not rust. I have...

  • How to Prevent Rust on the Rola Roof Cargo Basket
  • The Rola Cargo basket part # 59504 that you are looking at has a tendency to rust like you mentioned, but our customers came up with a great solution for this. They use a silicone sealer to seal up all of the tube joints on the basket. Here is what one customer recommended and said the basket is now very rust-proof. If you live in a rainy region (Pac NW, coastal area, etc) I can now strongly recommend that you take a few minutes to rust proof your rack. You don't need to touch the...

  • Recommended Roof Rack For Hyundai Veloster With Moonroof
  • Rola Sport Series Roof Rack with GTX Mounting System for Naked Roofs, part # 59726 is designed to fit a 2012 through 2014 Hyundai Veloster with a moonroof. When the roof rack is installed, the moonroof will not be able to be used. The roof rack is simply removed by loosening the leg bolts with the special tool that is locked inside the leg cover. You simply loosen the bolts and that frees up the clamps at the top of the door jamb. Many of our customers will make a tiny mark on the vehicle...

  • Attaching License Plate to Cargo Carrier
  • The legalities regarding a cargo carrier obscuring a rear license plate can vary widely by state. Your best bet would be to directly contact the State Police or Department of Transportation in the states in which you will be traveling. Many cargo carriers do not provide a dedicated place to attach a license plate. You could drill two holes through the rear rail in order to bolt the plate in place to temporarily attach the plate, if needed. The Rola Cargo Carrier, part # 59502 has...

  • Mounting Off-Road Lights on Rola Roof Mounted Cargo Basket # 59504
  • The Rola Cargo Basket, part # 59504 is constructed of 1-1/2 inch, 1 inch and 5/8 inch diameter round tubing. If you look at the photo I edited for you, it will show you which diameter tubing is used where on the basket. I agree, the location you describe would be the best place to attach the off-road lights.

  • Yes. The Rola Sport Series Roof Rack with APX Mounting System, # 59833, mounts to the existing points on the 2010 Mazda3 5-Door. I have included a link to the installation details below.

Further dimensions can be found in the instructions below.

  • I did not have the dimensions of the T-slot available so I went out to the warehouse and pulled a Rola Sport Series Roof Rack, # 59833, to measure it myself. I used a pair of digital dial calipers to take the following measurements. The width at the widest part of the T is 0.8215 inches, a little more than 13/16 of an inch. The width at the most narrow part is 0.315 inches, a little more than 5/16 of an inch. The height from the bottom most part to the top of the bar is 0.3685 inches,...
