Before you set out on your travels, consider using a roof rack to store more of your cargo. One of the most important things about using these roof racks safely is to never load it up with an excessive amount of cargo or allow the cargo to block your view while driving.

The roof rack that you select should be suited for your vehicle. It should also have a crossbar so that you have a secure way to tie down your cargo. It is almost always safer to use a box to store your cargo instead of trying to secure individual items. Load the box up first. Once it is filled with your gear, loop the straps around it. The crossbar should be used as well. Do not let extra straps dangle at all.

The roof rack can add significant weight to the vehicle and can be removed when not needed.
