Correct Roof Rack Usage

Regardless of the vehicle that you drive around town, if you need extra storage capacity, Lakewood Happy Motors can help you select a pre-owned vehicle that comes equipped with a roof rack. From racks that will carry bicycles to roof boxes that will make it easy to carry extra luggage, there's an option to satisfy every need. Using a little bit of copper grease on the bolts of your rack will make it easy to get on and off.

It's important to not exceed the weight limit of the roof of your vehicle. The weight ratings of your rack accessories are different than your vehicle, so it's important to know them both and not go over them. If you're carrying long items like lumber or a canoe, you'll need to secure the front and rear of the item in addition to attaching it to the rack. This will keep the wind from ripping the item, and potentially your entire rack, off of your vehicle.
