Fit of Roof Cargo Baskets on Factory Bars of 2017 Volkswagen Jetta


with this fit on the factory base roof rack on a 2017 VW Jetta? Rola Roof Mounted Cargo Basket - Steel - 52inch Long x 40-1/2inch Wide x 6inch Deep - 130 lbs


Expert Reply:

The Rola Roof Mounted Cargo Basket 59504 uses mounting hardware that will fit roof rack crossbars up to 1-1/4- tall x 3-1/4-inches wide, AS LONG AS the centers of the two bars are spaced apart one of four specific dimensions. Those bar spacing dimensions must be either 26-1/4, 30, 33-3/4 or 37-1/2-inches. As long as your bars meet the size and spacing requirements this steel cargo basket will fit well.

If you need a roof basket that will fit larger bars and/or bars with different spacing then you will prefer the Rhino Rack Roof Basket # RMCB02 which fits on bars up to 1-1/4- x 3-1/2-inches with bar spacing anywhere from 25-1/2 to 43-inches.

You may care to consider a folding step to ease loading and unloading your rooftop cargo. We offer the lightweight aluminum Telesteps step # TE97FR that gives you almost a foot of extra reach.

Be sure the combined weight of your chosen basket and its cargo does not exceed the vehicle roof weight capacity.
