What Makes a Good Custom Roof Rack?

Roof RacksWhat is a Roof Rack?

Simply put, Roof Racks are bars you install across the roof of your vehicle to help you carry extra and/or large items. Such leaves more room in your car for more items and additional passengers, as well as extra leg room. The first designs came out in the 1960s. They were practical, but unsightly and bulky and did not match or move along smoothly with the vehicle.

As time passed, as people developed a love for outdoor sports and extended trips, specific manufacturers emerged to update designs and accommodate the demand. Carmakers, too, began producing vehicles with parts that anticipated the installation of a Roof Rack.

Today, Roof Racks are very popular. That’s because mostly everyone these days enjoys spending time with their family, in the beautiful outdoors, bike riding, kayaking, and/or just picnicking leisurely. A simple roof rack, with the extra room it preserves inside the vehicle, makes it all so easy.

How to Choose a Roof Rack

Begin by knowing which Roof Rack will fit the make and model of your vehicle. You can usually determine this by reviewing the owner’s manual, contacting the manufacturer, and/or conducting Internet Research (or see information about Vehicle Accessories below). This is important. You want the roof rack to fit snugly and securely. An insecure roof rack, especially one holding large gear, is a safety hazard to you and everyone around you.

Then, you need to consider what it is you want to carry. Some are specific and some are universal. And, don’t worry. There’s a Roof Rack for every vehicle, from a four-cylinder hatchback up to an all-wheel-drive SUV. There are small Roof Racks that can take on up to four kayaks and bikes and surfboards and even a few bikes. Or perhaps you’re into camping – attach a tent and some fishing gear. Or maybe you ski. Or, maybe you chop wood for the fireplace – yes, a roof rack can carry firewood, too. The possibilities are endless.
