Review of the Rola Roof Mounted Cargo Basket


Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Rola roof mounted cargo basket, part number 59504. It's available with an extension, part number 59504-EXT. If you already have the basket you can pick up the extension separately, with part number 59505.If lack of space is a problem for your road trips, weekend excursions or tail gates, then the Rola roof mounted cargo basket is a great solution for you. It's a medium sized basket with a sleek aerodynamic look, adding the extension maintains that sleek look while upgrading it to a larger basket.Unlike some other baskets, this one includes a faring which is going to help reduce wind noise and drag, which means less annoying noise for you when you're on the road. With the cargo removed, you can see it's a sturdy steel construction with an open floor design, so dirt and debris does not build up and call fall right through.It has a black powder coat finish so it's going to be resistant to rust and corrosion, and you can feel it comfortable leaving it on in inclement weather. Our customer Velazquez T says, "This rack is the best.

I got one on my '15 Tacoma. I just got another one for my '07 4runner, with the extension, and I'm really happy. It fits so perfect. If you need more cargo space, just give your SUV a nice look and increase your cargo room. This fits all.

Rola rocks!"The standard basket has inside dimensions of 48" long, 37.5" wide and 4" deep. Outside dimensions are 54.5" long, 40.5" wide and 5" deep. With the extension, it measures 67" long, 37.5" wide and 4" deep. That's the inside dimensions. The outside dimensions are 74.5" long, 40.5" wide and 5" deep.As you can see here, even with the extension installed we still have plenty of room to open up our rear hatch.

In either configuration, it has a weight capacity of 130 pounds. Now, you want to be sure and check with your roof rack's owner's manual and your vehicle's owner's manual to see how much weight it can carry. It's going to attach to your round, square, arrow, elliptical and most factory roof rack systems with the included hardware.Customers on our site are comparing this to the Curt roof mounted cargo basket. Now the Curt does have a higher weight capacity of 150 pounds, but it does not have an extension available for it. It's 41.5" long on the outside, which is shorter than the 54.5" long on the Rola.

They are both made out of a steel construction and they both also have a faring, and that's going to complete our look at the Rola roof mounted cargo basket.
