    Roof Carrying Options

    Whether you require extra roof storage every day or enjoy the occasional trip, it’s important to select the right roof rack system for your needs and ensure you choose a reputable brand of roof rack to secure your extra load requirements.

    Roof Racks:

    When choosing a roof rack system, you need to identify the fitment options for your specific vehicle. Also, decide whether you require bars that extend past the leg or come enclosed. This is determined by the amount of roof real estate you need.
    Once you have decided on the right mount type for your vehicle, you need to evaluate the bar required. The type of bar chosen is based on the type of use you will be undertaking. These are generally available in silver or black to enhance the look of your vehicle.


    Once you have your preferred roof rack, the next option is to choose your desired accessory. Whether you are looking to carry sports equipment such as surf boards, kayaks and bikes or you are a tradie needing to carry ladders, shovels or timber, or even getting ready to take the family on an adventure of a lifetime, an accessory to make your carrying experience a better one, is out there!
    Most accessories mount to the roof rack cross bar either via the channel or wrap around the bar using fitting kits.
