The allure of a beautiful and functional roof rack for your 4×4
So, you are making your way down the highway in your 4×4 and you notice someone with the exact same vehicle, only they have an interesting accessory fitted to their vehicle. The accessory in question turns out to be an extremely practical and versatile roof rack. Many South African off-road enthusiasts would love to add a roof rack to their off-road vehicles, and more motorists are doing just that, thanks to the wide variety of roof racks available for sale at various price points.
If you cannot fit all your gear into your 4×4, you would want a roof rack too, as it allows you to carry additional kit on your vehicle’s roof. Many South African 4×4 drivers have roof racks fitted to their vehicles, simply because there is often not enough room inside the vehicle to carry everything required for the trip. For those who do not want to haul a trailer on their trip, a roof rack makes for an excellent alternative.
What roof rack to choose for your 4×4
What style of roof rack is best suited for travelling in South Africa? It depends what vehicle you are driving, and there are many options available. Let us start with the most popular types in South Africa today. Not so long ago, roof racks were quite simple and straight-forward. They used to be plain transverse steel tubes connected to steel mounting legs which, in turn, were clamped to a vehicle roof gutters.
Today’s roof racks, while operating on the same principle, with a similar basic design, are far more versatile than any of their predecessors. Roof racks can now be mounted to vehicles with gutter-less roof designs as well, and are manufactured using either alloy or steel. The crossbars also normally have a channel of some sort in its upper surface, for the fitment of various accessories. Some crossbar designs feature an aerodynamic profile, minimising the fuel consumption penalty when the roof racks are left on the vehicle when not in use.
