Rooftop cargo carriers are compatible with almost all types of vehicles allowing their owners the ability to easily carry extra items while travelling around. Whether embarking on a cross-country trek or heading out on a holiday getaway, there never seems to be a shortage of items for us to bring along. From duffle bags and coolers, to kayaks and mountain bikes; they can all be easily accommodated on top of your vehicle instead of inside of it.
It’s important to choose the right carrier that suits your needs, is compatible with your vehicle, and is within your budget. To begin the process there are a couple of functionality questions that will help you determine which type of rooftop box or carrier is right for you.
You should first have an idea of what types of items you will need to carry, as well as determine the vehicle you will be using to transport the items. This will allow you to determine the shape and size of the box as well as highlight any other roof top accessories you may require (i.e. a bike or boat rack attachments etc.)
If your vehicle already has a roof rail system, it is important to ensure that the roof box manufacturer has mounting hardware that is compatible with the existing system. If not, then there may be an adaptor kit available that you could use to ensure a proper fit.
Finally, you will need to know if you plan on removing the box or carrier when it is not in use. If you want to remove the box, then you may be interested in a model that has quick release connectors so you are not spending a large amount of time installing or removing your rooftop box.
