Sometimes it’s a spare tire, sometimes it’s a weekend’s worth of camping gear, sometimes it’s the family’s luggage for your annual vacation and still other times you honestly don’t know what all you threw in those duffel bags. But what you do know is you’re taking it with you - and there’s no room in the cabin of the car. You need a roof cargo basket that will help you get your gear out of sight and out of mind - at least until you get to the campsite.
Here at AutoAnything, we’re not going to tell you what you should or should not haul with your car, truck or SUV. We’re here to help you get it done; and our selection of premium roof rack baskets from top brands like Yakima, Rhino-Rack, Thule, Lund and more will give you the confidence you need to stop glancing out your rearview mirror for rogue gear that has decided to start rolling down the highway. Eyes in the front, friends, because our cargo baskets have all the features you need to sit back, relax and enjoy the drive.
For the family vehicle and daily driver, you may want to look at roof rack baskets that have a more minimalist, low-profile design, while still delivering on functionality. For off-road explorers and major adventure enthusiasts, roof baskets with deeper side walls will provide the carrying capacity to get you through any long weekend with the rugged aesthetic that you whole-heartedly embrace. Regardless of the design, you’ll be able to take advantage of aerodynamic details like front-mounted wind deflectors, which will help you cut back on the in-cabin noise you hear while driving down the highway and can help you save some coin with better gas mileage.
To install your roof cargo basket, you’ll need to make sure your vehicle has two crossbars already in place on the roof. Most cargo baskets will be able to securely attach to round, flat or factory crossbars with the included installation kit, but it will be important to check the specifications just to be sure. Another thing to keep in mind when shopping for roof baskets is the size of your roof and crossbars. While it’s not uncommon to find a roof rack cargo basket that is universal and can be adjusted to fit different makes and models of cars, others are specifically made for SUVs or trucks. You’ll easily be able to find the measurements and carrying capacity in the product descriptions we’ve provided. Or, you can simply enter your make, model and year of your vehicle at the top of the pair and let us do the matchmaking for you. Once you’ve installed your roof rack cargo basket, you can load up your rooftop and secure your cargo with hauling straps or a cargo net.

Our customers have tried and road-tested all the roof rack baskets we have for sale. You’ll find plenty of reviews on our roof baskets in order to help you make sure you get the one that fits your needs.
