A roof rack enables you to make efficient use of space that would otherwise be wasted, so you can carry more gear on vacations and for recreation. With a roof rack, you’ll have more room inside your car, so passengers can travel comfortably. We have all the carriers to help you get maximum utility from your roof rack, including cargo boxes and bags, cargo baskets, bike racks, ski and snowboard racks, kayak and canoe carriers, and much more.

We offer base rack systems for every type of vehicle roofline. Perfect fit is assured because the crossbar supports are individually designed for each roof style, including smooth roofs, roofs with gutters, tracks, fixed mounting points, and factory flush or raised side rails. Choose from round, square, and aerodynamic crossbars. Most roof racks can be locked in place and most carriers can be locked to the base rack, to prevent theft.

Once your base rack is installed, there’s virtually no limit to the type of gear you can transport. Taking a trip? We have cargo boxes in capacities to suit the needs of every family, so you won’t have to leave anything behind for lack of room. These boxes are easy to install and many offer the convenience of loading and unloading from either side. And if storage space is an issue, consider a cargo bag. These rugged bags can be even easier to mount because some do not require crossbars. They have weather resistant seems, and sturdy zippers, and they fold or roll up for convenient storage.

Roof racks are ideal for transporting recreational equipment. Our bike racks come in fork mount, frame mount and wheel mount styles, and each provides safe and secure transport that is easy to install and load. Hitting the slopes? You can take multiple sets of skis or snowboards in carriers that are simple to mount, gentle on your equipment, and easy to open and close. If water sports are your thing, you can use your roof rack to get your canoe, kayak or stand up paddleboard to the water’s edge. We have carriers ranging from the simple and inexpensive to set ups that will assist with loading.

If you regularly carry different kinds of cargo, instead of trying to secure each piece individually, try a cargo basket. They’re great for tools, gas cans, and cargo you don’t want inside the vehicle. If you’re a tradesman and haul ladders, lumber and similar cargo, we can supply you with sliders and rollers that attach to the crossbars to ease loading and unloading. And to make sure all your gear stays in place once it’s loaded, check out our selection of roof rack accessories for tie-down straps and cargo nets. We also offer fairings to reduce wind noise and adapters to provide rack stability on shorter roofs.

    Rooftop Carriers Can Carry All Your Water Sports Equipment
    So you've got a kayak, canoe, surfboard, or stand up paddleboard you can't wait to use. Before you can do that, however, you've got to find a practical way to get your toy to a lake or ocean - safely, and without damage. While these watersport items embody grace and fluidity in the waves, the truth is they're extremely cumbersome to transport on land. If you find yourself scratching your head trying to figure out the best solution, we've created this article to cover the many rooftop carriers for these items that we offer.

    Maybe you've got an SUV with three rows of seats. They're great fun when 6 or 8 people are along for a road trip, but most such modern vehicles utilize every inch of interior space in order to fit that third row. Consequentially, there's virtually zero room for cargo when seats are in the upright position. Or maybe you have a similar problem with a compact hatchback, or even a minivan. Your vehicle may have fold-flat seats that make carrying cargo easy, but what good are they when you need to bring passengers with you? You can't ask adults to squeeze in between duffel bags or sporting gear, and you can't ask them to hang on tight and surf on the roof either.

    Rooftop Carriers Can Carry All Your Winter Sports Equipment
    Skiing and snowboarding are not inexpensive hobbies. After purchasing skis, poles, shoes, clothes, lift passes, and even lodging accommodations, you've shelled out enough money that it becomes tempting to skip spending more on a rooftop carrier. But if you've ever jammed all your snow gear inside your car, you know how chaotic, slushy, and awkward that can be - especially if you're trying to make room for friends and luggage. That's why we offer cleverly-designed rooftop carriers that won't break your bank in the Ski & Snowboard Racks section of our website.

    Roof Rack Base Systems - The Foundation for Sports Equipment Carriers
    More than ever, we have observed that young and old alike are engaging in outdoor activities. Everything from biking to skiing to canoeing is being pursued with avid interest and excitement. There are folks outside in all kinds of weather, at all times of the year, engaged in healthy pursuits. The explosive popularity of the "Sport Utility Vehicle", or SUV means that these vehicles are living up to their name, and are being pressed into use as the means to move the equipment. Even the "non-SUV", the family sedan or hatchback, has been configured in some way to be able to carry what's needed to support the sporting activity of choice.
