Review of the Curt Roof Basket on a 2015 Chevrolet Equinox


Speaker 1: Today on our 2015 Chevrolet Equinox, we're going to be installing the Curt Roof Mounted Cargo Basket. This comes in a length of 41 and a half inches with part number C18115 00:00:09 and a length of 62 and a half inches with part number C18115-117 00:00:16. This cargo carrier is a great way to add carrying capacity to your vehicle. It can also free up space in your vehicle so on long road trips, when you have frequent stops at the rest stations, you don't have to fumble with all your gear when getting in and out. And, for vehicles with second and third row seats that fold down, that normally are filled up with cargo, you can now lift those seats back up and bring more passengers with you. It's got a faring on the front that can help reduce wind noise and drag, and will also cause the air to flow over your cargo so you don't have to worry about it whipping in the wind.You can see here it won't interfere with the opening of your tailgate or your antenna.

And, there's plenty of clearance for your sunroof, so you can have it fully open and enjoy it as you're go down the road. The cage design gives you plenty of tie down points so you can make sure your gear's secure. It's got sturdy steel construction with a black powder coat finish to resist corrosion. Here, we're showcasing the 41 and a half inch model, but both the 62 and a half inch and 41 and a half inch are both going to have a 37 inch width and four inch depth. There's 150 carrying capacity, although you don't want to check your vehicle's owner's manual to make sure it's not going to exceed the roof capacity and also your cross bars to make sure it won't exceed those capacities.The carrier itself weighs a little less than 30 pounds, so it's not too hard to get it up on top of the roof.

When comparing this to other cargo carriers on our site, this is going to be a plainer looking, more economical solution. But, it's going to have plenty of carrying capacity and size to accommodate your needs. Now, when loading up your cargo, it is important to use some straps such as ratchet straps or bungee straps, but to take it to the next step, if you have a bunch of small gear that you're worried about falling out, you can get a cargo net such as part number C18200 00:01:56. To begin our install, you'll set your cargo carrier on top of your roof racks and install the clamps. We've already got three of them installed.

Let's show you how to do the last one.You want to position your cargo carrier so that your cross bar is between two of the beams on your cargo carrier. Slide the plastic foot pad underneath your cargo carrier, between it and your cross rail. Snap it down into place. Position the metal, hold down on top of the cargo carrier. Slide the u-bolt underneath your cross bar and feed it up through the holes in your top clamp.

Now, use the tri-nuts to tighten it down, making sure to tighten it down evenly on both sides. Now, when positioning your foot clamp, you want to put it towards the outside. Further away from center is going to make it more stable. With it all tightened down, we're ready to load up our gear and hit the road. That completes our installation of the Curt Roof Mounted Cargo Basket on our 2015 Chevrolet Equinox.
