Learn How to Properly Use a Roof Rack

When traveling, having a roof rack gives you more storage space and wiggle room. You can even haul a kayak or canoe with a roof rack. To begin, read the roof rack's instructions. Next, refer to your car's owner's manual. Check the roof's weight capacity. Consider the weight of the rack in addition to the weight of the items you want to transport on it.

Hauling stuff on top of your vehicle creates more drag and resistance. Most roof racks have a speed limit rating. Make sure to check the maximum speed that the roof can handle. Driving too fast with a rack on the roof could result in wind shearing the rack off and damaging your car.
