If you are looking for a rooftop cargo carrier with a large carrying capacity but one that also has a sleek modern look, then the low profile roof cargo rack is the right product for you. But don't let its looks deceive you - it has a huge 52" by 43" basket which can carry up to 150 lbs. This cargo rack is made from 1" black powder coated tubular steel and attaches easily to the cross bars on your vehicle.
Made from black powder coated tubular steel
150 lb capacity
Sleek low profile design
52-1/2"L x 43-1/2"W x 5-1/4"H
Fits round and square cross bars at least 27-1/2" apart
Attached to side rails with easy-to-install U-brackets
Optional wind fairing reduces noise and wind resistance
The roof rack basket easily attaches to existing cross bars to provide extra storage space on the roof of your vehicle. It features a sturdy yet low profile design, and assembles and mounts quickly and easily.
Conveniently store camping gear, luggage, or other equipment on the roof of your vehicle with the roof cargo rack! This roof rack basket features a low profile design, yet has a generous 45.5" L x 41" W x 3.5" H inside storage area (52.5" L x 43.5" W x 5.25" H overall dimensions). The black powder coated steel construction includes 1" diameter frame tubing along with 1/2" diameter inner rungs, providing a sturdy rack that only weighs 27 lbs. The side rails keep your load in place and also provide attachment points for tie downs or cargo nets. The car luggage rack is easy to assemble and install, with a unique mounting system that fits a wide range of cross bar sizes and shapes, including square and round cross bars. The roof rack basket uses U-brackets to mount to your vehicle's existing cross bar system. A wind fairing is also available (sold separately) to help reduce wind resistance and noise while traveling. Cargo bars (sold separately) can also be attached to the basket, allowing you to use roof mounted accessories along with the basket. The roof cargo rack includes a 1 year warranty.
Pleasantly surprised by how big it is in real life, even without the extension. Love the sleek low-profile look. Very sturdy structure. I also purchased the wind fairing and installed it from the get-go; as such i am not sure if it created noise. But I can say that with the fairing I have noticed zero added noise out on the open road.
My only gripe about this rack is that the mounting nuts that it comes with can easily be taken off by hand. I'd like to see it come with a more theft proof mounting option; even some simple lock nuts would be a better option. Also, the mounting bolts stick up too high and I will need to trim them down so as not to poke holes, scratch, tear or otherwise damage my precious rooftop cargo.
The main reason I got into this accessory is to carrying luggage, camping gear, picnic paraphernalia, etc. With the assistance of a bungie chord net this roof rack does the trick nicely and fashionably! Would recommend it to a friend for sure.

I received this rack for Christmas from my grandfather. When it was brand new I loved it. It looked great on top of my Jeep Cherokee and I could toss just about anything in it that I didn't want in my interior. After only a few months though the thing started to rust. Upon further inspection I could see that the welds joining pieces of tubing together did not go all of the way around each tube allowing water to enter the inside of the rack tubes. The rack is literally rusting from the inside out and leaving rust orange streaks all over my white Jeep.
5 StarsGreat value.

This basket is the perfect size for my 2001 Subaru Forester with Yakima cross bars. It was easy to assemble & mount and feels very sturdy. I did not notice any road noise while on the freeway, but am also using the wind fairing.

I love this roof rack! It works perfectly on top of my 2011 Ford Edge as well as my 2000 Jeep Wrangler. In some cases I need a little more length so I purchased the extension for it as well. Now I am covered for all of my needs. I recommend purchasing the wind faring as you may hear some noise at highway speeds. I am very pleased with the quality and construction of this rack!
5 StarsBest buy

Easy to assemble even when we add the extension piece that we bought extra. We were certainly excited when it arrived in time for our holiday. Looks good on our vehicle!

This basket arrived quickly. It was a bit smaller than I thought it would be, but that is not to indicate it is small. Definitely, a solid rack. I stood on it in many different spots with both feet on and off the vehicle and at 170 lbs It didn't bend, make weird noises, or come loose in any way. I put the faring on and the wind noise disappeared, but the noise without it was not as loud as other reviews had prepared me for. I'm contemplating the the extender so my back racks fit more comfortably, but that's just me having fun with it, they fit fine as it is. Highly recommend it. I thought my stock crossbars were strong, but this rack drastically increased the stability of all the cargo I have put on it so far.

Easy install. Looks great. Well made. Should make carrying boats easier. Noisy at 35mph and above. I ordered the spoiler. Hoping that will help.
5 StarsBetter than expected

Shipping package was tight, no dings. Decent matte black powder coat. Mounted in about 45 minutes, would have been more like 30 minutes if I didn't have to move my rear cross beam on 03' Honda Pilot. (no tools required) Mount brackets were perfect match for my Pilot cross beams and looked like they would accomodate many other designs and shapes. I did not purchase the wind deflector and should have. It is loud without it and plan to get the wind deflector ASAP. this could hold a spare tire and two or thre suit cases if netting used.
5 StarsGood fit

I have a 2005 Kawasaki Mule 4x4. Found a after market flat top cover that was designed to fit and needed something to carry items such as kayaks and paddles boards to and from the beach and river. Started looking around and came across this site and noticed this carrier. Ordered it that day and shipping was fast. Wasn't able to use mounting hardware that came with the carrier, but knew this and it wasn't a problem. A few changes to attach and works great! Good price also.

I bought this cargo rack recently for my husband, we have a Tahoe. We are using this along with the extension and wind fairing; looks great and works really well. We received our order much quicker than the expected delivery date so that was even better! This is a decent sized cargo rack and fits nicely on a larger SUV, especially if you add the extension to it. I would highly recommend both the product and Discount Ramps!
