Roof Rack Passenger Accessories
When purchasing a roof rack, you need to think about what kind of roof rack you want and how it will sit on your vehicle. You won’t have a lot of say in what type of roof rack will fit on your car because of the manufacturer, but once you have figured out which one you want, you can pick the accessories to match.
These are some of the roof racks that you can purchase:
A Fixed Point Rack
These racks are threaded into the factory fitting point on the roofline, which will give you a very reasonable load limit. However, there is no flexibility as to where the rack will sit.
Raised Roof Rail
If you have a factory-fitted raised rail, then this is a good option for you. Having a raised roof rail will give you a high load limit and flexibility to where you want your rack placed. Also, there is no contact with the paint on your car. However, some of these rails can be short and are positioned closer to the vehicle's rear.
It is also better to always check the manufacturer’s recommended maximum load.
This roof rack will fit directly onto your paintwork with a clamp and will be secured on the top of your doorframe. These roof racks tend to be very popular amongst most vehicles, but it does have direct contact with your paintwork. Also, the load limit tends to be lower on these roof racks.
When you have factory-fitted mounts on your vehicle, you can use a track mount roof rack. These racks are bolted or riveted on, so they are secure. Also, these racks will allow for flexibility in your positioning, depending on your needs. Plus, they are straightforward to install.
However, if you do not already have tracks on your vehicle, it could be harder to aftermarket ones installed aftermarket, but that all depends on the car.
