Review of the Rola Roof Cargo Carrier on a 2015 Volkswagen Golf

Today on our 2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI, we'll be doing a test fit of the Rola roof basket. This is going to be your 52 inches long by 40 inches wide, 6 inches deep with a steel construction and a 130 pound weight capacity. It's going to be part number 59504. As you can see, we also have it mounted onto our Yakima round bars. It will fit just about any kind of bar system that you may have whether it be your square bars, even your aero blades or aero style bars. Let's go ahead and show you how to put the last foot pack on since we've already put three on there. These will be your parts for it.

You'll have your two wing nuts here, your U-bolt with your plastic cover, your plastic upper piece and your bracket to go over the top. This will actually sandwich in between the bars of the rack itself and then sit on top of your bar system. This bar will come up underneath and we'll put the two nuts on to secure it. Let's go ahead and put one of these on just to prep before when we get it up there, it will be a lot easier. All right.

Let's show you how it's done. Like I said, we'll take our bar here, our plastic spacer and slide it up underneath. It will fit with the bars on both sides. Then we'll go ahead and set the metal bracket over the top like so. From there, we'll grab the U-bolt with the cap on it and slide the one end over, bringing the other end up and threading on the nut. Go ahead and tighten that down and secure it around our round bar.

As you can see, that's nice and sturdy. Now you're ready to hit the road with the Rola roof mounted cargo basket, part number 59504 on our 2015 Volkswagen Golf GTI. .
