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.

Featured Brands

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.

    Rightline Gear Car Top Carrier Bag
    The carrier bag had room for 6 adults luggage for a long Labor Day weekend getaway. It did not flap or buzz or make any annoying sounds. Extremely good value for the quality.
