Expert Answers about Rola

  • 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...

  • 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....

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Installation Instructions for a Rola Roof Rack on a 2010 Mazda 5
  • 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...

  • Is There Way To Lock Rola Roof Basket # 59504 To Chevrolet Suburban
  • There is a way to lock the Rola Roof Mounted Cargo Basket, part # 59504, to your Chevrolet Suburban, but part # 59504 does not have integrated locks. What you can do is use Quantum 15 Steel Cable Lock, # 8157DPS, to lock the Rola Roof Rack to your Suburban to prevent theft. To do this you would just run the lock through the Rola Roof Rack and the cross bars on your Chevrolet Suburban. Rola does not offer any locking mechanisms at this time to prevent the basket from being stolen. Our...

  • Will Rola Swinging Enclosed Cargo Carrier Fit a 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited
  • The Rola Enclosed cargo carrier # 59109 will fit the Class III trailer hitch on your 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. To make sure it will clear the spare tire you will need to measure from the center of the hitch pin hole straight back to the distance required to clear the spare. If less than 13 inches the carrier will clear the spare. When swung open the carrier will be at a 90 degree angle. The rear door on your Jeep probably opens about the same. It is likely that the spare tire will...

  • 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...

  • Cargo Carrier Recommendation for 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited That Allows Rear Cargo Door to Open
  • Check out the 17x50 MaxxTow Cargo Carrier part # MT70107. We installed this carrier on a 2013 Jeep Wrangler and determined that with the carrier installed the rear door was able to open. I attached a video that shows this. Fast forward to the 30 second mark to see the door open with the carrier installed. This cargo carrier has a 500 lb capacity. The Rola Cargo Carrier part # 59502 that you referenced could not be installed inverted so I would not recommend it for you.

  • Will Rola Ladder Rack Load Stops Fit a TracRac Ladder Rack
  • Yes the Load Stops for Rola Haul-Your-Might Truck Bed Ladder Rack - Aluminum - Qty 4 Item # 59794 will fit the channel in TracRac ladder racks with a little persuasion. The square parts that fit in the channel are just a hair larger than the channel. It would not take much to get them to work.

  • Will Rola Roof Rack # 59736 Fit 2010 Volkswagen Golf GTI and Thule ProRide 591 Bike Carrier
  • The Rola Sport Series Roof Rack with GTX Mounting System # 59736 will fit both the 3-door and 5-door versions of the 2010 Volkswagen Golf GTI. This rack features locking elliptical aluminum crossbars that can accept compatible T-Slot-mount accessories. My contact at Thule advised that the ProRide 591 bike carrier you referenced is not a model that was sold in the U.S. but was offered in the product line in Sweden. Based on the information available from Thule it appears that the mounting...

  • Height Adjustable Truck Bed Ladder Rack Recommendation for 2016 Toyota Tacoma
  • The height of the uprights on the Rola Haul Your Might T3 part # 59799 are fixed at 25 inches. If you wanted a height adjustable ladder rack for your 2016 Toyota Tacoma with Deck Rail System you would want the Thule Xsporter Pro part # TH500XT-XK4. This rack last the height adjustability of 0 inches up to 27 inches.

  • 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...

  • Trailer Hitch and Cargo Carrier Recommendation for a 2010 Toyota Prius
  • We do have some cargo carrier options for your 2010 Toyota Prius, however, the Rola Enclosed Cargo Carrier. # 59110, will not fit on your Prius. As you mentioned, this cargo carrier requires a trailer hitch with a 2 inch receiver. The trailer hitches available for your Prius only have a 1-1/4 inch receiver. I have attached a link to all of the trailer hitches that will fit your Prius for you to check out and compare. The trailer hitch that I would recommend for you is the Draw-Tite...

  • Are Additional Straps or Nets Needed to Secure Rola Tuffbak Cargo Bag 59119

  • 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...

  • Recommended Cargo Bag for the Rola Cargo Carrier Part # 59502
  • The correct cargo bag for the Rola Cargo Carrier part # 59502 is the Rola Expandable Cargo Bag part # 59102. This Rola bag is 48" long x 19" wide and the above Rola cargo carrier is 59" long x 22" wide therefore will work well with each other. The other cargo bag you mentioned is the Rola TuffBak Cargo Bag part # 59119 which measures 59" long x 24" wide therefore, will be too wide for the above cargo carrier. The Rola Expandable cargo bag is water resistant and offers up to 11.5 cu....

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Roof Rack Recommendation for 2017 Volkswagen Golf with Naked Roof
  • The Rola roof racks like the part # 59736 typically come in at a much lower price point than other brands like Yakima and Thule. They are still decent racks that get the job done but they may not fit quite as well and sometimes have a bit of flex in the crossbars. The part # 59736 is a fit for both the 3 door and 5 door 2017 Volkswagen Golf so it will fit your 5 door. For a rack that costs a little bit more but would get you a substantial increase in overall quality the Rhino Rack system...

  • Most Inexpensive Roof Rack and Bike Rack for 2013 Volkswagen GTI
  • The best priced custom roof rack we offer that is a confirmed fit for your 2013 Volkswagen GTI is the Rola roof rack part # 59736 that you referenced. The rack has clamps that tighten do the door frame of your car to hold the assemblies to the roof. If you are looking for the lowest priced roof bike rack we have the Swagman part # S64720. No fairing is require for this setup either. Fairings are great for cutting down on wind noise but they aren't used all the time and wouldn't...

  • Compatibility of Rola Cargo Carrier LED Lamp Kit # 59516 with Pro Series # 63153 Cargo Carrier
  • The Rola LED light kit you referenced, part # 59516 is indeed compatible with the Pro Series # 63153 cargo carrier. There is also the # 98174LED lamp kit that would also work, but I personally prefer the Rola Kit due to its heavier-duty wiring harness and connectors. Either light kit is also compatible with the # 59502, 59507, 59550, 63154 and 63155 cargo carriers. I have linked you to some product demonstration videos that you might find helpful.

  • Light Kit Recommendation and Comparison for Rola Dart Cargo Carrier
  • The main difference between the Light Kit # 20174 and # 59516 is that the # 59516 uses LED style lights and the # 20174 uses incandescent lights. LED lights are much brighter and last longer than incandescent bulbs while only drawing a fraction of the amperage. Both of these kits are confirmed to fit the Rola Dart cargo carrier # 59550 you are interested in. I attached install videos for both kits for you to check out as well.

  • Can Rear Hatch of 2011 Subaru Forester Open When Rola Cargo Carrier # 59507 is Installed
  • By taking a few measurements, you can get a pretty accurate idea of where the cargo carrier would be situated relative to the rear of the Forester once it is installed. The angled shank will raise the carrier 2 inches above the top of the receiver, and the closest portion of the basket itself will be 9 inches rearward of the hitch pin hole. I have edited a photo that shows these dimensions. Measuring 9 inches rearward of your hitch pin hole and up 2 inches from the top of the receiver...

  • Recommended Roof Rack for 2017 Subaru Impreza Sport
  • I do have a solution for you, however the Rola Sport APE Series Roof Rack # 59636 referenced in your question is not a confirmed fit for your 2017 Impreza Sport with no existing rails or crossbars. For a similar aero style crossbar, I recommend the Yakima Roof Rack that consists of # Y00421 for the two 50 inch crossbars, # Y00148 for the SkyLine Towers and # Y00233 for the Landing Pads. This roof rack is confirmed to fit your vehicle and has a weight capacity of 220 pounds, although...

  • Cargo Net Recommendations for a Cargo Carrier that is 60 Inches Wide
  • The Rola Flat Strap Cargo Net, # 59200, will probably work for your 60 inch wide cargo carrier, but it may not be able to hold loads that extend past the cargo carrier side walls. This net measures 48 inches unstretched so 60 inches does not give the net much room to hold taller loads. Instead, I would recommend either the Curt Stretchable Cargo Net, # C18202. This net measures 60 inches wide unstretched and would give you plenty of flexibility to secure larger items such as coolers,...
