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.

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.

The basket looks like it is fairly well built and I like the way the slip joint is protected from water intrusion. The basket I got had a couple of dimples close to the factory bends. This didn't look like a manufacturing problem, but handling problem. This being said, I'm still happy with the purchase.

After looking at many designs, the ROLA was the best cargo basket for function and affordability. Easy to install, just a few minuets and I was ready to go.
