Review of the Rola Roof Cargo Carrier on a 2003 Honda Pilot

Today on our 2003 Honda Pilot, we're going to be doing a test fit of the Rola Rooftop Mounted Cargo Basket. This basket is going to be 52 inches long, 40-1/2 inches wide, have a depth of 6 inches, and with its sturdy steel construction, is going to have that 130 pound weight capacity. It's going to be part number 59504. As you can see, we've already got three of the feet installed on our crossbars. This rack is going to be good for any of your crossbars, for the most part, especially your round bars, square bars, factory across bars, even your aerotight bars. There might be some issues with your crossbar spread, but you just need to check your vehicle application and your crossbar spread to make sure that it will fit the right way. As you can see, we've already got one of our spacers in here, in between our cargo basket and your crossbar. The next thing you're going to do is take your plate, which is going to be your metal plate that's got the two squares in it and the two U-shaped brackets on each side.

That's going to lay over the top. After you have that in place, you'll take your U-shaped bolt with that nice protective rubber coating, and place one wing nut on, until you see the top of the threads coming through. It will make it easier for when you slide it under and hook it on that U-shaped bracket on the one side like so. It will kind of stay in place while you get up top and place that other threaded part of the U-bolt through. Place the other thread and wing nut on the other side, and tighten it down. These cargo baskets are going to be great if you have any kind of cargo control issues, and you want to go camping or on a trip or anything like that, and you want to put your items up top, such as your luggage or coolers, tents, etc. You can get all of it out of your vehicle and out of the reach of your children or pets.

It will be great if you want to take and put your high-lift jacks, your shovels. Maybe even your off-road lights or anything else like that, or accessories that you want to place on here, you can do so. As you can see, that's going to be nice and sturdy on top of your vehicle. You're ready to hit the road with the Rola Rooftop Mounted Cargo Basket, part number 59504, on your 2003 Honda Pilot. .
