These days any family that heads out for a holiday in their vehicle has tons of stuff to carry – from bikes to skis to snowboards, luggage, tents, etc. etc. Sometimes you wish you could drive your home to the holiday destination but unless you live in a camper (in which case you probably wouldn’t need a roof rack); this is not an option. The next best – of course, roof racks!
But if you are anything like us, instead of just blindly heading out to your nearest roof rack or car accessory store, you probably want to Google roof racks first right? I mean check out the options, prices and so forth. Also maybe find out which roof racks are more popular. You don’t want to buy some untested roof rack just because of the sale price and then find half your luggage has fallen off because the clamps were too weak or straps not strong enough to hold it all. Nope, that won’t do. In case you are curious, there’s dozens of YouTube “funny incident” videos of luggage flying off poor quality vehicle roof top carriers.
When Googling for best roof racks online in Australia, it would be safer to concentrate on the main brands – that way you can avoid having to upload your own “funny incident” video – or worse, someone else capturing it on video.
So which are the top roof racks to check online?
Like we mentioned, the main brands and these include Thule, Yakima and Rhino. They make the best roof racks in the World and are especially ideal for the Australian outback.
While aerodynamically styled sleek roof pods are not new, the earlier models had limited space within (due to design limitations). These days however, while the external design continues to remain sleek and aerodynamic, the size and internal structure have undergone changes to not only allow more luggage but also secure them so things don’t rattle inside the pod. And the Thule Tow Bars Sydney brand produces some of the meanest looking roof racks. They are full of features and stylish enough to suit any of the latest BMW’s, Audis and Mercs.
Roof rack pods these days are quite functional, aerodynamic and easy to set up. They have a built-in torque indicator that clicks when it’s mounted – no more guess work. They also have an added feature – dual-sided openings! This ensures you can access your luggage from both sides of the car – this can be important when you’ve parked the car in a tight spot.
Rhino Tow Bar Hitch on the other hand are a great solution for SUV and Jeep enthusiasts heading off into the Australian outback. They manufacture great racks that can strap down anything from camping gear to to spare fuel tanks. You can even mount lighting fixtures on it.
So, there’s two ways to find the best roof racks online from suppliers in Australia; you could Google for it or, you could simply head to http://www.barsnracks.com.au this is a one-stop url for anything and everything on roof racks and more.
