Expand Your Vacation Carrying Space With A Roof Rack

One of the most useful vehicle accessorizing options is a roof rack. More than just luggage racks, today’s roof racks can be equipped to carry all sorts of equipment and supplies. Adding a roof rack to your vehicle can provide more than just additional carrying capacity. It can also turn your everyday vehicle into a specialized piece of recreational equipment.

Basic roof racks provide a stable support system for sports and recreational equipment like skis, snowboards, surfboards, kayaks and other roof-mounted items. These racks usually consist of two sturdy beams that attach to the sides of the vehicle roof and are placed at the front and rear of the roof.

This configuration will support many types of recreational equipment, but beyond this basic roof rack are more sophisticated storage and carrying systems. You can buy roof-top boxes that can store a whole family’s luggage and camping equipment, and even get portable living spaces that turn your vehicle into a camping base with a tent and enclosure.

When planning your next vacation, think of the ways that a roof rack will expand the possibilities for your vehicle’s carrying capacity. It may make your vacation that much more enjoyable by allowing you to take along more of the equipment you would otherwise leave at home.

Whichever roof rack system you choose for your vehicle accessorizing, it makes sense to consult your dealer to choose the correct system for your vehicle. Each system has a load rating, and that must match your vehicle. Also, not every roof rack will mount properly on your vehicle.

At NYE Automotive Group, you can get the expert knowledge and installation skill that will help you choose the right roof rack or other vehicle accessory that you need. Contact us before your next trip.
