When it comes to road trips, getting there is half the fun. But it's hard to have a good time when you're battling for elbow room with duffle bags, coolers camping supplies. If your family truckster is feeling overstuffed, move your gear up to a ROLA Vortex Roof Mounted Cargo Basket. It keeps your cockpit clutter-free and leaves plenty of legroom for your backseat drivers.

Bulky luggage, smelly fishing tackle, muddy sports equipment—no matter what you're packing along, it's sure to fit in the Vortex ROLA Roof Basket. Crafted from steel with an all-weather black powder coating, your ROLA cargo carrier shoulders up to 130 lbs of freight yet weighs a modest 38 lbs. Plus, it comes complete with a custom-sized wind fairing to cut down on noise, improve the aerodynamics and complement its swept-back shape.

No matter what kind of crossbars are riding atop your vehicle, the ROLA Vortex Roof Basket features universal mounting hardware that fits round, square and most factory bars. The 2-piece design is simple to assemble, and you can expand its 48" length a full 18.75" with the optional Extension Piece (sold separately). To top it off, your ROLA Cargo Basket includes a 5-year warranty.

Ease of Installation

Super easy to put on the vehicle. I really like the sleek look and lower profile than some of the other racks. The materials are bomber. The bars are spaced well for securing all sorts of soft or hard goods. I was able to fit 1 bike rack on each side of the cage on top of my Subaru Crosstrek and it doesn't stick out too far.

Very pleased with this cargo basket. It is very well made, and very sturdy. Easy to put together with the extension section.. The screws all come with rubber washers so they screw in tightly. Also the kit comes with thick rubber gasket sleeves that go over where the rack is joined together, which is a brilliant idea because it prevents any water from getting into the inside of the rack or rusting the screws. Best rooftop cargo rack for a great price!

Installed following the instructions and all went well. I needed to add Crossbars, which I found out later, but no problem.

Great product

I love my new rola rack on my Subaru Outback! I am a Subaru tech so I have driven many Subaru's with roof baskets on them that make a lot of wind noise this is by far the quietest rack I've heard. I love the look and added luggage room. This rack is going to come in handy with our new baby this vacation.
