Review of the Rightline Range Jr Rooftop Cargo Bag


Hey guys, today we're going to take a look at the Rightline Gear Range Junior Rooftop Cargo Bag. Now, this bag's going to allow you to get any excess cargo that you can't fit in your vehicle up into the bag and strapped down onto your roof. Now, if you only have a couple trips a year where you need more storage space on your roof, but you don't want to invest in a roof rack and a cargo box this is going to be a great option for you, because it just straps to your roof and then it's also going to store very easily. And, it's also going to give you the same protection that a cargo box does. It's going to have a nice PVC fabric coating, so it's going to be water resistant. It's going to keep all your cargo on the inside dry and it's also going to block UV rays, protect your materials from overheating and it's not going to fade over time.

One thing that it might lack in, when compared to a cargo box, is that you don't have a way to secure it, like a locked cargo box has.Our zipper that goes 3/4 of the way around our bag, does help keep out water by having that flap over top of it, with 6 hook and loop pads that are secured together to help keep that flap down even in high winds. It's going to have 10 cubic feet of storage space, 36 inches in the length, 32 inches in the width and 15 inches in the height.Now, this bag is going to be a bit smaller, compared to some of the other bags that Rightline Gear makes, but this is going to be more meant for your sedans and your smaller crossover SUVs. The ones where your roof's just not quite big enough for those bigger bags. But, if you've got a bigger vehicle, you want a bigger bag, just see etrailer.com, we got plenty. And, when you're all done, you got a nice bag that's going to make for easy storage, so you can just fold it up, put it in here and then, you can store it in your closet, in your garage, really wherever.Now that we've gone over some of those features, I'll go ahead and show you how to get it installed on your roof.

Now, it's going to be a pretty simple process. All you need is your bag and then your 4 straps right here. So, we're going to set the straps to the side and we're going to find the point where it opens up. It's going to be 3 sections. We want the part where it opens up facing the back.

Now, it's going to be on the side right here to me. So, we're going to take that and put it on the roof.Once you have it in the correct orientation, go ahead and toss it on top of your roof. We just get it lined up and as centered as possible. Then, once you get it lined up, go ahead and just open it up. Now, I've got my bag packed and I've gone ahead and zipped it all up and secured all my hook and loop fasteners on the underside.

I've got 3 of the straps installed, I'll show you how to install the last one and kind of give you a tip on the easiest way to do it. So, first you want to line it up to make sure that you have it facing the correct way to come under your weather stripping.It's going to sit like that and I'm going to take it all the way to the top and before I hook it on, I'm just going to get it loosely installed on my buckle. Just come up from the bottom and then back through on itself. Then, I'm going to get my hook installed properly, now I'm going to pull down on that strap. I'm going to make sure it's secure, just give it a good tug, from there you can just shut your door. Now you're ready to hit the road.
