HI
HOW MUCH CAN MY ROOF HANDLE?
PUTTING A ROOF RACK ON AND JUST WANT TO KNOW,
DEPENDING ON THE ROOF RACK ITSELF, IF YOU KNOW PLEASE
LET ME KNOW,
THANKS.Big Grin
It all depends on the size and the amount of support of your roof rack. You will reach the limits of safe handling ( being top heavy ) if to much weight is placed on your roof. I went for a little more than half the roof as I do not need more area. I had mine custom made.
Thanks, appreciate it.
The roof has plenty usable space, however going on-top poses many issues in itself. I've had in excess of 200kg on a D/C 4x4 once, but would not recommend it!
Apart from the height issues, the added wind resistance will add 1-2 l/100km.
Maybe this will help in terms of weight allowed - remember the roof rack also weighs something alone Idea http://www.brick-yard.co.uk/forum/t3-gro...43527.html
