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.

I'm glad I didn't spend a ton of money for this rack. It arrived scratched and rubbed to beat hell. It was bent where the two sections connect together, not to mention it looks like it was welded together by a high school shop student. I'm still picking chunks of slag out of my fingers from handling it. If it weren't such an inconvenience to send it back, I would.

The only issue I had was mounting the product on the vehicle. The brackets did not snap in tightly and/or not at all which made the task more difficult. Ditto for removing the basket without having something drop onto the car. Product is sturdy, wind noise is minimal to nonexistent. Used ROLA platypus bag and the two products fit well together.
