What is a Roof Rack?

A roof rack is a set of secured bars that is mounted on top of a car's roof and holds anything from bikes to heavy-duty items. While height clearance can be an issue, a roof rack keeps cargo from impeding a driver's vision or crowding the vehicle's interior. Below is a list of various types of roof racks.

Types of roof racks

  • Bike roof racks allow you to carry more bicycles than a trunk or rear hitch bike rack.
  • Ski roof racks work perfectly when taking your skis or snowboards to the slopes.
  • Cargo carriers are boxes mounted on the roof that enclose luggage or camping gear.
