  • Which Surco Cargo Basket for 2002 Honda Odyssey with Raised Side Rails
    I have a solution for you, but the # S5072 will not be the correct fit for your 2002 Honda Odyssey with the raised side rails. Instead, Surco recommends using the Surco Safari Rack 5.0 Rooftop Cargo Basket for Factory Rails - 60" Long x 45" Wide # SPS4560-1101, which comes with everything needed to mount directly to your raised side rails.

  • Cargo Basket Solution that Can Fit Top Channels of TracRac Load Bars
    The Thule TracRac load bars are much thicker like you mentioned which means the cargo baskets that wrap around roof rack crossbars won't work since those bars are much smaller in diameter. The best option is a basket that can attach to the bars by the channel that's on the top of them and the largest option we have for that happens to be the Thule Canyon XT part # TH859XT which measures 49 by 40 inch.

  • Availability of 8 Foot Long Roof Basket
    The longest roof basket we have available is the Surco Safari Rack 5.0 # SPS5084, which measures 84" long (7 feet) and 50" wide. We do not actually make these baskets so we're not able to modify them in anyway. This is the longest basket that Surco (or any of our manufacturers) produces. Keep in mind that this part is just for the basket itself. The needed mounting hardware will depend on your application. For example if you are planning on attaching the basket to factory raised side...

  • Recommended Roof Basket For 2011 Land Rover LR4
    Surco does not have a roof basket that can easily attach to your 2011 Land Rover LR4 so I do not recommend going with a Surco basket. Instead, I would look into a platform rack that can attach to your roof without needing to install crossbars. The Rhino-Rack Pioneer Platform Rack with Backbone Mounting System - 84" Long x 56" Wide # RR28AB would fit regardless if your roof is naked or if it has factory roof tracks. You can then add various accessories to the basket, such as the Ladder # RRRAFL.

  • Factory Rood Rack Adapter For The Surco Safari Roof Cargo Basket
    It's always best to use adapters made for the Surco Safari Rack # S5072 so it's secure. That being said the U bolts you're looking at # CTC-18PARTS isn't the best option. You need these rails # SPR3600 for your factory roof rack.

    In order to mount the Surco Safari Rack 5.0 Rooftop Cargo Basket - 72" Long x 50" Wide # S5072 onto your 2020 Ford Expedition's factory roof rack you will need to use Clamp-On Adapters for Surco Safari Rack 5.0 Rooftop Cargo Basket # SP1101.
