Which Roof Basket Is Best For 2020 Ford Expedition With Roof Rack?


I am looking for a large platform for my 2020 Ford Expedition, which has factory raised side rails and crossbars already installed. I measured the side railes front to back and found they are 70inch long and the width between the rails is 48 1/2 . If it matters, the measurement between the crossbars is 42. I dont want to go too big, but I also want to use the space I have, if necessary. What options would you recommend that would allow me to use what I currently have installed? My use case: we have a camper that we tow. Id like extra storage space. Thank you!

Since your 2020 Ford Expedition is a rather larger vehicle and it already has crossbars, there will be quite a few platform racks to choose from. I recommend looking into the Rhino-Rack Universal Pioneer Platform Rack for Crossbars - Aluminum # RR42115BF. This measures 58" long and 47" wide and will clamp onto your crossbars or install via T-bolts if your crossbars have the T-slot channel. This rack is a decent size, but will not be too big to where you can't access your trunk.

Another option is to use a basket such as the Yakima LoadWarrior Roof Rack Cargo Basket # Y07070-74 which will clamp onto the crossbars. This measures 62" long and 39" wide which will fit your roof well. I think this is the better option as it will do a better job of securing your cargo since it has side rails. I attached demonstration videos for you.
