Customer Reviews Rola™ Platypus™ Expandable Roof Top Bag

Rating:

very nice but would not fit on my Toyota Highlander 2015 standard factory roof rack. This was completely unanticipated.

'weatherproof' does not mean 'waterproof'

Will the Rola Platypus #59100 fit on most SUV racks? We have a Merc Mariner with racks on the roof. Can we pick one up at Uhaul or shipped to home? How long to receive it? Thank you? If this wouldn't work, any suggestions?

–Vera 11/12/2013 10:02:25 PM

This bag is designed to fit the racks on most SUV's. This bag is not stocked in UHaul Centers and must be ordered online and shipped to you. It takes our warehouse two days to ship this and they do have plenty of stock as I write this. Allow 4-5 BUSINESS days from date of order to receive. Based on your info provided, yes I do feel this will work for you. As you may have noticed, it gets great reviews. I also just added the instructions in .pdf format to this web page. They may help you decide. Thanks.

is this ok for a Honda civic 2003 4 door sedan?

–alba 2/14/2014 11:28:05 AM

Our hitch pros write: "The 59100 Platypus roof top carrier is designed to mount to an existing roof top luggage rack. If this is not the best option for you, please consider using one of our hitch mounted cargo carriers."

Will this carrier work with out a roof rack?

–Tony 3/16/2014 6:54:33 AM

No. Sorry. The vehicle must have an existing roof rack.

–Ronald 3/26/2014 1:17:20 PM

do you have to use the metal tray as shown in the picture or can you just strap it to the roof rails (2 side rails)

Will this fit a Kia Sedona SUV. It has two, not four luggage bars on top

–Lynn 8/19/2014 3:05:45 PM

No. Sorry. This product requires a four way roof rack. Thanks.

–Ronald 8/19/2014 3:33:50 PM

Does the roof top bag come with the metal tray shown in the picture? If not, do you order it separately. I don't see it listed on the uhaul website...

–Bob 9/19/2014 10:58:10 AM

It does not. The tray is currently not available so we took it off our site until it is. Our apologies. However, the bag is designed to attach to your existing four way roof rack. The tray is not required.

–Ronald 9/19/2014 11:16:34 AM

Will this fit a jeep patriot? Is it good at high speeds?

–Jason augustine 10/2/2014 12:29:13 PM

It will fit if the vehicle has a four way roof rack. It is designed for normal speeds, not excessive speeds. Thanks.

–Ronald 10/2/2014 12:35:15 PM

Is it waterproof or water resistant?

–Johnson 11/26/2014 4:10:04 AM

This product is weather resistant. /// "Premium quality weather resistant construction." Thanks.

–Ronald 11/26/2014 8:03:23 AM

Can the zipper system be locked ?

–Ron 2/10/2015 9:58:09 AM

"The 59100 zippers have a loop on the handle that allows the use of a small lock."

–Ronald 2/10/2015 3:53:34 PM

I have a 2007 Pontaic Vibe would this fit on top?

–Jennifer 5/31/2015 5:30:36 PM

The 59100 Roof Top Cargo Carrier has a total of eight tie-down points, two per side. The straps are secured to roof racks equipped with side rails and crossbars.

If this is not the best solution for you, please consider using a hitch mounted cargo carrier.

–Joseph 6/22/2015 10:02:28 AM

Do you have to have racks on top to use?

–Shannon 6/26/2015 3:56:22 PM

–Joseph 8/31/2015 11:08:38 AM

I have a 2014 Town and Country Chrysler Mini Van. It has a standard model roof rack. Will this carrier work with that?

–Laurie Sharp 11/3/2015 5:25:00 PM

The 59100 will attach to your vehicles roof rack if equipped with side rails and cross bars.

–Joseph 11/9/2015 8:54:19 AM

What rooftop carrier will work with a 2011 Hyundai Donate with no luggage rack.

–Jerry 12/26/2016 4:11:22 PM

U-Haul does not offer a luggage rack for your application, please see your vehicle manufacturer for more luggage rack options.
