Review of the Rhino Rack Roof Basket on a 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek

Today on our 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek, we're going to be test fitting the Rhino-Rack Rooftop Cargo Basket, part number RMCB02. This is 57 inches long by 42 inches wide by 5 7/8 inches tall, with interior dimensions of 53 inches by 39 1/4 inches on the inside. This does have a 165 pounds of carrying capacity, although you want to double-check with your vehicle's manufacturer's manual to make sure they can withstand that kind of weight up on the top. The mounting kit, here at the roof rack, they fit a wide variety of bars, anything from arrow, elliptical, round, square, or even some factory crossbars. This will not work, though, with the Rhino Rack heavy duty bars. It simply just wraps around here. It has this nice padded bottom, here, so your roof rack won't get scratched up once it gets installed. Then we have this plate and 2 screws up at the top, and that secures it to your roof rack. This is going to be great for storing your camping, your sporting goods gear or your luggage or anything wet to keep it out of the vehicle and make more space for you and your family as you travel.

One of the best parts about it is it has no clearance issues between the hatch and the basket itself, and you don't have to remove the antenna, as well. There you have it for the Rhino Rack Rooftop Cargo Basket, part number RMCB02, on our 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek.



Question, with this basket, am I still able to use the Rhino-Rack Ski and Fishing Rod Carrier - Locking - 2 Pairs of Skis or 4 Fishing Rods - RR572 simultaneously together to carry stuff on the basket while being able to transport my fishing poles/snow boards?

@Angel I reached out to my contact at Rhino-Rack and they did not have a way to use these together. I am sorry that I could not be more helpful.
