Review of the Rola Roof Cargo Carrier on a 2008 Mercury Mariner

All right, today is the 2008 Mercury Mariner. We're going to do a quick test fit of a Rola roof mounting cargo basket, part number 59504. All right, we'll go ahead and take a look at the front of our cargo carrier. You can see it has the including fairing, which makes for a sleek profile design and reduces drag and wind noise. All right, a couple things to know about our cargo carrier is that it has an inside dimension of forty-eight inches long bye thirty-seven and a half inches wide and four inches deep. Now our cargo carrier has four points of contact with the factory roof rack, and with the last one we'll show you how it works.

It's very easy. Four pieces to this clamp. We've got this part here that sits on top of your crossbar, this clamp which actually goes over the rack, and a u-bolt and its hardware. Okay, before you put the rack in place, you actually put these bases that snap in between these two bars. Since they snap in, you can do this while still on the vehicle. Okay.

Then you put the clamp on the top. Put a clamp on top. Make sure it goes over both sides evenly, and then we'll install this clamp. We have one of the pieces of hardware already started. We'll take the other one off.

It's pretty simple. We'll just go ahead and just lower it beneath the . We'll go ahead and lower it down below the crossbar. It's got a rubber coat to it too, so it helps protect the finish if it drags like what I'm doing here. Then we bring it back up to the other side and install the other half of the hardware.

The only thing about installing the hardware, just make sure you're tightened down evenly on both sides. It really doesn't take that much finger strength to make sure that it's tight enough and secure to go down the road. Okay, really that's all there is to it. Okay. Now before you load it up, it's a good idea to know the weight capacity of a cargo carrier. In this case the weight capacity is a hundred and thirty pounds. A carrier itself weighs thirty-eight pounds. Double check with the manufacturer of our roof rack to make sure it can carry those kinds of weights. With that that will finish it for the Rola roof mounted cargo basket, part number 59504, on our 2008 Mercury Mariner.
