How much can I carry on my roof rack?
There are a few factors to consider when decided how much you should load onto your roof rack.
- Your vehicle
- The roof rack you have / plan on getting
- What you’ll be doing
The vehicle manufacturer will give a rating for how much load the roof of the vehicle can take. There will also be a load rating for the roof rack and you need to work with the lower of these two figures. How you use the vehicle will also have an impact. When driving off road, the load rating of the roof rack is reduced. If you look at the figures given, you might ask yourself “how can I fit a roof top tent? The tent plus the weight of one or two people is well above what I should carry”. Here, a different load rating applied. When the vehicle is not moving (static) you can usually carry 3x the loading rating showing for a roof rack.
We aren’t quite done yet. When considering how much weight you can carry, you also need to factor in the weight of any accessories that you may be using. If your vehicle is rated to carry 60kg on the roof, it doesn’t mean that you can load 60kg of equipment into your roof box. Instead you can carry 60kg less the weight of the roof box and the roof rack.
If you have any questions about load ratings, please feel free to contact us.
