The SUV Cargo Basket is a roof mounted cargo carrier that is designed to fit almost any SUV or minivan. This cargo basket is made from tubular steel that has been treated and finished with a durable black powder coating to help resist the element. This steel railing is interwoven to form the base of the basket, but is also used as side rails to prevent cargo from shifting during transport. At 6" deep, the basket is deep enough to easily hold suitcases, coolers, tackle boxes, etc without any fear of the cargo falling out. The SUV Cargo Basket is designed to attach to rectangular, round, and aero style factory crossbars. Installation is made easy by the use of a mounting U-bracket that can be installed without the use of tools!
There are two accessories offered for the SUV Cargo Basket that allow you to customize it to fit your needs. The first accessory is the wind fairing that is great for reducing rack noise and increasing your vehicle's fuel efficiency. The wind fairing is effectively a wind shield that attaches to the front of the basket and reverts the flow of air over your gear instead of through it. The second accessory is a pair of crossbars designed to attach to the railing of the basket. These crossbars give you a place to mount any sport-specific racks you may already have.
Cargo baskets are one of the most versatile cargo maintenance and general purpose storage devices you can have for your vehicle. There is not an easier way to carry extra cargo and gear with you on a road trip than with a cargo basket. What makes a cargo basket so great is its shape - its effectively a big steel cage on top of your car! Carrying more gear is as simple as throwing it up into the basket and strapping it down with a tie down strap. Since almost all cargo baskets have a steel mesh basket or large side railing, using a tie down strap is trivial because there so many places to loop it through. There is no hassling with special clamps or single-purpose racks needed, a cargo basket is one size fits all. Another thing that most people don't realize about cargo baskets is that they can be used as crossbars to attach sport-specific racks to. As mentioned above, most cargo baskets have a steel side rail surrounding the basket. You can use this rail to attach rack pads or even a kayak roof rack so that you can transport surfboards, SUPs, kayaks, or whatever you need! A cargo basket really gives you the best of both worlds - a general purpose storage device and the ability to attach sport-specific racks.
