Video Transcript for Curt Roof Basket Review - 2018 Subaru Forester

Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 Subaru Forester we'll be installing Curt's roof mounted cargo basket, part number C18115. This is a nice simple cargo carrier. It's great because it doesn't interfere with any of the operations that come factory on your vehicle. It's the economy option, it's got plenty of tie-down points and what I like best about it, is that you have that option to extend it. So if you're going on those longer trips, your family gets bigger, this thing is going to keep growing with you.This cargo basket is going to increase your vehicle's carrying capacity to be able to put more gear on top of your roof or you can take gear that was inside your vehicle and put it on the roof and now you've got more room for passengers inside the vehicle.It measures 41 1/2 inches long, 37 inches wide and 4 inches deep, and features 150 pound carrying capacity. Now you do want to check your vehicle's owner's manual to make sure you're not exceeding the carrying capacity of your factory roof rails.Now, if you need more carrying capacity you can get an extension that will add 21 inches of length, bringing it to to a total of 62 1/2 inches.

You can get this extension using part number C18117 or if you had purchased the the longer kit, it was already included.As you can see here, there's plenty of clearance between our hatch when it's fully open and as well, our antenna so we don't have to worry about any clearance issues at the rear of our vehicle. And as you can see here, it's not going to interfere with the operation of the factory sunroof.To help reduce wind noise, there's a fairing, located in the front and this will help direct the air up, over top of your cargo. The cross rails on the bottom and sides provide plenty of tie-down points. And if you have smaller cargo that you're worried about, you can get a cargo net such as the one from Curt using part number C18200.This cargo basket is lightweight and easy to set on top of your roof. Once you've got it set up there, you want to make sure you set your distance between your crossbars so that it's as far to each edge as possible and they line up between two of the cross rails on the cargo basket.We've already got three of our clamps installed.

Now we'll show you how to do the third now. You'll begin by taking the plastic spacer, placing it between your roof rail and your cargo basket. Make sure it snaps into place, in between the two cross rails. Then take the metal clamp and put it on top of the cargo basket, over your plastic spacer.Then take the u-bolt, go underneath your crossbar, slide it up between the outer slits of the spacer up into the holes in the metal clamp. Now thread the plastic nuts on each side of the u-bolt.

Once you've got them run down, make sure that you get them nice and tight so your cargo basket doesn't slide around on your rails and keeps all of your cargo secure. And you repeat that same process for all of your remaining clamps.Now that we've got it installed get ready to load it up and hit he road. And that completes our installation of Curt's roof mounted cargo basket, on our 2018 Subaru Forester.

Great rack for the price and one of the biggest available. This holds everything we need for when we go overlanding including a 10x10 pop up tent. The basket was perfect to mount lights and other items to. I have had no issues with it over the past year and never had to tighten any of the hardware despite the 100s of off road miles. 2 items that I need to address otherwise this would be perfect. Many of the welds have started to show rust after a first rain storm suggesting paint from the manufacturing process did not cover everything. Currently cosmetic and not structural. Second item to note are the mounts these are very secure but take time to install other review suggest cutting the bolts to not interfere with items in the basket but I would cut them down aid in time needed to install the basket on your vehicles roof rack. Overall great basket and happy with my purchase.

Those are great pictures and I am glad you like the cargo basket. For the rust, I recommend touching it up with a rust resistant spray like Rustoleum.

I love the rack and the extended length is great on my Sequoia. I am disappointed with the finish on it as the connector plates are already showing signs of rust….. I like it enough that I’m going to repaint it with something more suited to our climate…

I have gotten in contact with the manufacturer and they have said that looking at the photos it looks as if the item is exposed to the elements all times of the year. Snow left inon the rack will cause this. Salt build up from winter roads will also cause this. Since the rust has already started, we recommend trying to clean up the rust the best you can then get a good paint to prevent any further rust.

The tracking information w/updates is by far the most detailed I've ever seen! I highly recommend them & look forward to placing future orders A+ The roof rack is sturdy, well made & the install was quick & easy. The detailed videos provided are also A+


The basket and extension arrived in 2days! Perfect. But when trying to assemble, found one of the posts that slide together was bent. Looks like it was manufactured badly, even powder coated that way. I called etrailer immediately to get a replacement shipped in time for our trip. I was informed that replacement shipments were running up to a week behind?!? They have my money, and I have to wait another week when the first order only took two days? Bad manufacturing and bad customer service response. I expected more from etrailer! This is my first bad experience but it’s leaving us high and dry for our trip.

I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you.

got it and put it together took a little thinking and all done . now waiting for my travel date to install it on my Jeep Grand Cherokee for moving need the extra room


Seemed of good quality and well made. However, it had too much capacity to work well for the tiny amount of stuff I have in my roof rack. So I did return it.

We do have some smaller options for roof rack cargo carriers. I have sent your information over to our customer service department for them to better assist you.

Using 3rd row seats in the SUV really cuts cargo space so having this has worked out great on a number of trips. It causes a little wind noise so I don't always have it installed. It's quick and easy to install/remove. I have a waterproof rooftop bag that fits in it nicely. Note that I did cut down the mounting bolts so they wouldn't stick up into my cargo. If you have thicker crossbars, it may not be an issue but I have low profile crossbars. Without the extension, the basket would honestly be a lot less useful to me. With the extension piece, it is awesome. Camping gear, boxes of stuff from Ikea, hunting/fishing gear.


I bought this roof basket for my 5th gen 4Runner so that we could run the Trans America Trail. I looked at other baskets and this seemed to be a great deal, especially when I compared prices. Overall, I'm happy with it. There were some fit and finish issues (the holes didn't line up quite right and I had to drill them out in order to get the locking bolts through; the u-bolts that attach the basket to the rig's existing rack are WAY too long and poke holes in anything above them - easy fix with a hack saw or a bolt cutter, but really annoying). That being said, it has held up very well. 4,500 miles of off road, fully loaded, and I haven't had an issue. I continue to use it for trips. Overall, I would recommend this to other people.


Fast and safe delivery, easy to install and it looks great!


Easy to assemble. I added the extension to accommodate my 03 Suburban - just wish it was a bit longer to fill my roof rack. Highly recommended!


The cargo basket definitely fulfills its purpose. Perfect size and weight for my 2008 Toyota 4Runner. Used with and without a cargo bag, even topped loose supply and cargo with a cargo net. However after the 3rd offroad excursion thus past year through all types of weather(rain, snow, ice, even mud); the black basket fades and even displays rust in numerous spots. I resprayed the entire basket with 2 coats of spray primer and 2 coats of all-weathered sealant spray paint. Haven't had any issues since then. There are better racks out there, however for the price it's certainly worth it!!


Works like a charm. I have filled this rack to capacity many times weighing down my 2011 Subaru forester quite significantly. It is the right length to still open my hatchback as well. I think that the only thing I'd say bad about the product is the attachment to the car rack protrudes into the storage area and makes some issues with setting hard containers flat in the compartment. Overall it has added almost double the cargo capacity to my car and that's what I wanted.


Highly recommended! Sturdy construction and rugged appearance. Easy to assemble in very little time. I love how it looks and most of all the function ability.

Item is still superb! I have hauled plywood, mattresses, and basically anything I needed to. I highly Recommend.

I got my roof basket in three days of ordering it and it was very easy to assemble and to put on my Chevy Blazer by myself. All of the attachments for the screws on the faring and the attachment for the rack to the roof are all nylock nuts that are made to hold. Very impressive construction. I look forward to using it on my next off road or camping trip. I am very impressed with the construction of the roof rack.


Miserable product DOES NOT FIT 2017 Rav4 factory roof rails properly. Supplied clamps DO NOT FIT properly, impossible to get a tight fit. Cargo basket slides side to side on rails after 50 miles.
I would return this product but have already disposed of packaging.
Never buy from here again.

I will definitely have our customer service team reach out to you. This cargo basket will fit on cross bars that are spaced at 22 or 29 inches apart center to center. It will fit on bars that are up to 3 inches wide and 1.62 inches tall.

Simple build and install. Looks great and is functional. Loss of the star is because the hex bolts and tool provided are soft metals and round out easily so I replaced them all with hardened stainless bolts


So far I love it, it's very easy to put on and take off. With a kido and two dogs, this roof rack makes packing for camping trips a possibility. We live in the pacific north west and get a lot of rain the seal on the rack is wonderful I haven't gotten any rust spots like I read about some other cargo racks. The only complaint is the cargo net I bought with the rack is very poorly made and designed it ripped on the very first trip.


I have just had a great experience ordering from trailer. The customer service and follow up was incredible! Even helped through a weekend. Amazing.


The rack appears to be strong and made of good materials. I assembled it with no problems and mounted it to my Toyota Highlander. All in all, it took about 1 hour.


As expected - manufacturing was a little off, requiring some adaptation, but nothing serious, and in line with what I expect for the price. Once together and up there, it is super solid and quiet, even with sunroof open. Happy.


2016 Subaru Outback.

Product fitment
and instructions were amazing. Very easy to install and took almost no time at all. Probably close to 30 minutes or so. Very pleased. If you're considering this product, I would recommend giving Greg a call. He helped me out tremendously.


Delivery was fast and arrived early.

was straightforward and not hard. Minimal wind noise increase. Basket feels sturdy. Will find out how it holds in a few days when the family heads to the beach. Overall, a good purchase and happy experience.

If I had one knock, it would be the packaging of the items could be better. I had a lot of scuffs and scratches that required some paint touch up. Eventually, all this would get scratched through daily use, but no one wants to get a new item already dinged up.


Quality seems low. Missing a a few minor assembly pieces. Good for the price.


This basket is a great addition to my Jeep. Sturdy but not too heavy and simple install. Going to be great for camping and keeping bulky items out of the cargo area.


This basket is above the quality expected at the great price. Extremely well built with an ease of assembly. Took me about 1 hour to complete. All of the hardware was labeled and fit like a glove. Highly recommend it! Can't beat the space and look. We are ready for some trail riding and camping.
