Car roof Racks Sydney
A car roof rack is highly useful for carrying extra luggage or equipment.
Some older cars, especially models before the 1980s, could be fitted with generic roof racks that bolted to the gutters on the car roof. These are no longer possible as modern cars rarely have roof gutters. And the generic roof racks were usually just a set of bars, only really suitable for light weight loads.
A few cars, more often stations wagons, have factory installed roof racks. These are a reasonable option for light weight loads. They are fine for fishing rods, a surf board or a bicycle.
4wd roof racks
Owners of 4 wheel Drive vehicles often fit roof racks, because they need the extra storage space. These roof racks almost always need to be heavy duty fixtures, because they will carry considerable weight. Anything from fuel tanks and winches to bed and tents may be carried on the roof. Generic roof racks are not really appropriate for this.
A decent 4WD roof rack should be rated to safely hold about 100kg. A few may take 150kg or more. This sort of weigh load requires both a very sturdy roof rack and a secure means of fitting it to the vehicle.
4WD roof rack are either custom made to fit each model of vehicle, or a solid type of generic roof rack is custom fitted to the individual vehicle with a mounting kit.
