Cost Effective Roof Rack, Cargo Basket, and Cargo Bag for a 2013 Toyota Prius v


I have the 2013 Prius v with a non-opening panoramic roof. Will this Rola roofrack work with my car. I need to carry some luggage is there a basket and bag that I could do that with? Or would I need a clam shell? I need something that will get my luggage 900 miles and my budget is limited. Do you have any suggestions?

Yes, the Rola Sport Series Roof Rack with GTX Mounting System part # 59729 is a confirmed fit for your 2013 Toyota Prius v and will work well for you. It is also the most cost effective roof rack we have for your vehicle at this time. The roof rack has aero shaped crossbars for reduced wind noise/drag, t-channels for use with a variety of different rooftop accessoires, and locks for security.

Then for a cargo basket I like the MaxxTow Roof Mounted Cargo Basket part # MT70115. This basket will work well with the above aero shaped crossbars. It comes with a fairing for even more reduced wide drag/noise and measures to be 45-3/4" long x 36-1/4" wide x 4-1/4" deep. Then for a bag you could use something like the Advantage SportsRack SofTop Rooftop Cargo Bag part # HE3021 which offers 13 cubic feet of storage space.

Please keep in mind that although both the above roof rack and roof basket have listed weight capacities, you will need confirm the weight capacity of the vehicle's roof first.
