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.

Almost Perfect.

For the price, the Rola cargo basket is a great option over its more expensive counterparts from Thule and Yakima. Easy to put together. With the extension added and to be installed on a large SUV such as our Armada, a second set of hands is definitely needed to get this onto the factory roof rack/rails. I would've given the Rola 5-stars but unfortunately, they don't offer locking brackets.

Great looking roof top basket!

I recently purchased this basket to go on top of my wife's new Honda Pilot. It looks fantastic on it. It took about 20 minutes to put it up there and get it centered. It does add a little road noise on the highways, but that was to be expected. My wife loves the sporty look it gives her new car. Time will tell if it works well for the road trips we take each year. At this point, I highly recommend this product! See the pic below...

After reading a few reviews, I was worried about the internal rusting problem. However, Rola must be reading the reviews as well because my cargo rack came with rubber seals for screws and rubber tubing to fit over and seal the connection points. Nice and chunky, heavy duty rack. Wish there were alternative mounting options in order to mount to my Yakima Bars, but it seems to be holding secure with the mounts it came with.

Great basket looks awesome

Great Rack, Bad Mounting Hardware

The Rola Vortex is a well built roof rack especially for the price. I would say as well built as the leading roof rack brands. However, the mounting system is very poorly designed. In fact, I would say it is so badly designed that the lower price of the Rola Vortex is negated by it. If I had known that the mounting system was so bad, I would have never bought this rack. Save yourself the frustraition and buy one of the leading brands that has better mounting harware and design.
