Car Roof Rack Article


Roof racks, in a variety configurations and styles, are available from The Rack Warehouse. We stock roof racks to fit cars with smooth roofs, vehicles with factory racks and automobiles with rain gutters. Cars like the Honda Accord and Civic, Toyota Prius and Camry, and the Ford Focus are examples of cars with smooth roof lines. Toyota RAV 4, Chevy Tahoe and Jeep Grand Cherokee are examples of vehicles with factory installed racks. Since it is nearly impossible to safely carry items like bikes, kayaks or canoes, etc., on a bare roof or a factory rack, Thule and Yakima have come up with roof racks and carriers that attach to just about every roof shape and factory rack. To see exactly which roof rack is ideal for your vehicle and equipment, please visit our Thule and Yakima automated fit guides. After answering a few basic questions about your vehicle (year, make, model, etc.) the fit guide will suggest the perfect fit. This process takes less than a minute.

Roof racks can be somewhat generic. However, since most cars are not designed with a roof rack in mind, Thule, Yakima and other top manufacturers are constantly scratching their heads to come up with roof rack designs that fit new vehicles. The Rack Warehouse Staff will gladly provide information and updates in case you cannot find the perfect roof rack fit for your new vehicle.

While visiting RackWarehouse.com be sure browse our bicycle racks and kayak racks to find the perfect carrier for your gear. Remember, all Thule and Yakima orders over $75 are entitled to free shipping. Plus, most orders ship within 24 hours of placement.
