Review from a similar Safari Rack 5.0 in Roof Basket


I bought this for a trip we were doing last summer. I was originally going to go with a more Custom built rack but the wait was too long.

I had a good time building this and fitting it to our Hummer H3. It worked great for freeing up space for the family. We spent a week out on the road with no issues. It is a little taller than I was originally looking for but the Safari style rask is very easy to use and pack. I have had it mounted for a year now and had no issues.

Review from a similar Safari Rack 5.0 in Roof Basket


I've had this rack on my 1995 Grand Cherokee and it's still great. Paint has finally started peeling but count the years to 2018 and it's been at 6000 feet in sun all that time! These roof racks by Surco are the impossible combination; light and sturdy.
This longer version is going on my 4x4 full size expedition Van.
The box arrived quickly, and it's a precision fit together.
However, like all roof rack baskets, they show a set of floor slats that are not part of the kit and no disclaimer about it. Just because the others are doing that sort of misleading marketing doesn't mean they have to.

I would like more floor options, like a chain link fence which could be rolled for easy shipping or expanded metal.
I would also like color options, I need this one in white, so I'll have to paint it.

etrailer got right on this order and it arrived earlier than I expected.

Review from a similar Safari Rack 5.0 in Roof Basket


Works great, sits low is almost as wide as my renegade, doesn't weigh much but is plenty sturdy, doesn't make an unreasonable amount of wind noise and make a great mount for off-road lights take the time to read and measure to install it correctly and it sits stable hasn't moved in close to 10,000 miles after the initial install and tightening, also a great way to move tough bulky items out of a limited interior compartment, like highlight Jack's and other weather proof off-road essentials

Just opened it up and it's missing parts. Was planning to install tomorrow. Please help! It's missing the 3, long, base bars that support the whole thing. Someone please call me asap to see if we can get those parts shipped overnight. Time is of the essence. Thank you.

I chose this rack to mount on my PUTCO venture bed rack because its the same exact size as the bed of my 2019 Ranger I used Yakima mounts for quick on and off. Couldnt be happier and love the look

Review from a similar Safari Rack 5.0 in Roof Basket


I have had this rack on my Ford Excursion for a full year now. I go whitewater kayaking about every weekend and they fit in the rack very nicely. I bought a 4'x8' sheet of expanded steel mesh for a floor, cut it to length, painted it with truck bed liner, and fastened it to the cross bars with sheet metal screws so I wouldn't have to worry about balancing on the cross bars while loading and tying down gear.
This summer we went to from TN to CO with 3 boats stuffed full of gear on top, and it handled them with ease.
Get the folding ladder to make loading and unloading a breeze!

Awesome product. Assembly was straightforward but did take a bit of time. Installation and removal of the rack are a breeze. Very happy with the service from etrailer.com. Incredible amount of product information on the site that allowed me to make an informed decision, and shipping was fast and free.

Review from a similar Safari Rack 5.0 in Roof Basket



Thank you. I have had the product
installed and I must say the wind noise it creates is very shrill and causes my ears to ring long after I have stopped driving. Is there a wind deflector for this product ? ??????


Comments
Unfortunately, any object installed on a vehicle roof is going to cause some wind turbulence, this is unavoidable. Surco doesnt offer a wind deflector at this time, Im sorry to say.

Although I haven’t installed the rack yet it looks great and I think it will work fine. I’m putting it on my jetboat so it isn’t exactly what it was intended for but I’m anxious to see the final results! Pictures to follow soon!

Ask the Experts about this Surco Products Roof Basket



  • How to Attach Surco Safari 5.0 Rack - 50 Inch x 50 Inch
    I was able to reach out to my tech contact over at Surco since they've launched some of these new baskets and such and they currently do not have a kit that allows you to attach the Surco # S5050 to oval/aero shaped bars. However he did mention that you could source some U-bolts that would fit your RhinoRack bars and drill some holes in the aluminum parts of the basket to attach the U-bolts to your crossbars and the Surco # S5050. This is currently the only solution to mount a Surco rack...

  • Surco Safari Rack Mounting To 2020 Chevrolet Suburban LT With Factory Roof Rails and Cross Bars
    To attach the Surco Safari Rack 5.0 Rooftop Cargo Basket # S5050 to the roof of your 2020 Chevrolet Suburban LT you will need the Clamp-On Adapters # SP1101. Your factory cross bars do not appear to have a t-slot for the basic hardware to slide into and attach to the top of your Suburban. The Clamp-On Adapters # SP1101 will attach to the Basket and clamp around your factory side rails.

  • Surco Safari Roof Basket to Fit 2008 Jeep Liberty
    I talked to Surco to be sure and actually the 50 inch basket, part # S5050, is the recommended size for your 2008 Jeep Liberty. The 60 inch, part # SPS5060, might fit but I can't confirm it. To fit the basket on your rails you need the clamp-on adapters, part # SP1101, as well. The adapters and 50 inch basket combined is part # SPS5050-1101 and for the 60 inch basket it's part # SPS5060-1101.
