Driving With a Cargo Roof Rack

While roof racks are convenient for road trips, they can affect the way your vehicle travels. You'll need to modify your driving habits to stay safe. To ensure that you're ready for all future travel plans, here are some driving tips for whenever you're hauling items on your roof.

You should always check speed limitations of your rack prior to setting off. Many roof accessories have maximum speed ratings because the added bulk on your vehicle affects overall aerodynamics. Going too fast can cause the rack and any secured cargo to lift right off the vehicle. Check the instructions of the rack to make sure that you don't go over any limits. Furthermore, you need to be aware of the height of your cargo. Luggage that's stacked too high may prevent you from entering parking garages, going under overpasses, or getting through drive-through lines during a pitstop.
