Frequently Asked Questions
What maximum load can I carry on my vehicle?Jorge ValdiviaRefer to your vehicles manufacturers hand book. For instance some vehicles have a load rating of 100kgs maximum, this is suitable for bitumen roads, and equates to approx 70kgs on corrugated roads. The maximum load is a motion load, so that is the maximum load you can carry while the vehicle is in motion on bitumen roads under normal driving conditions. While the vehicle is static you can have a roof top tent weighing 40kgs, and have the weight of two persons on top, equating to more than the maximum 100kgs load listed in the manual. Always distribute the load on your roof rack and when entering corrugated road areas, reduce the weight on top, for instance remove fuel from the roof rack, fill the tank with this fuel and ensure luggage is tied down securely with non stretch ties.
Will I get leaks in my vehicle from the roof racks?Jorge ValdiviaNo, when roof racks are installed by our professionals there will be no leaking in the vehicle. Our staff members have years of experience with installation and carefully choose products so they are the best for the vehicle and application.
Will removable roof racks damage my car?Jorge ValdiviaNot if you make sure the racks are properly fitted and the roof is clean when you fit the racks. Take them off a few times a year and wash under the rubber pad and refit securely and you will not damage the car.
