Most any car top carrier bag can be strapped into any rack as long as it has raised bars. If your luggage rack has crossbars running the width of the car, you can also use either a roof basket or a rooftop cargo box. Consider the following when choosing a roof cargo solution:

    1. are easy to install. Attach the straps to your rack over the carrier and you're ready to go. They fold up small when you're finished. Car top bags should be packed full so the bag material doesn't flap in the wind. The key to choosing a good bag is to consider the material it's made from. Cheap bags are made of thin material with flimsy zippers. Polyester material is UV resistant and a good choice, while nylon carriers will break down under the sun. Dual-layered material with a vinyl backing really resists the water. Good car top bags offer urethane coated zippers and liner systems as additional measures to keep water off your gear.

    2. offer a sturdy structure to lift your gear off of the vehicle rooftop. Roof baskets are easy to strap cargo bags and nets to, and they offer a nice rigid base with sidewalls. A basket paired with a car top bag is a great setup offering the user much flexibility.

    3. are very easy to pack. A roof box requires a luggage rack with crossbars or a sport bar system on your vehicle. They are generally the most expensive rooftop option, and you have to consider whether or not you are going to leave it on your car all the time or store it in your garage. You'll need to pack them full or use a net inside to hold the gear in place so it doesn't rattle around. Make sure you pick a box that doesn't extend over the front windshield to catch updraft. Also remember your gear will be limited to the interior height of the box or the box won't latch shut.

    4. A new product called a is a large cargo bag that hangs from the luggage rack or steel car hooks on the back of the wagons, suvs, and vans. It hangs under the rear window so your view is not blocked. Car back carriers are easiest to load, don't require much lifting, and also cause no aerodynamic drag. Since they ride behind the car, they don't get the extreme force of weather like rooftop carriers do. They won't work with traditional sedans with trunks. {Editor's note: In August 2008, a Great American RoadTrip Forum member purchased this product and used it on her family road trip. !}

    5. No luggage rack? No worries! Some car top bags offer car clips that can hook on ledges on the side of your car and other car top carriers offer that allow you to strap through the inside of the car and over the carrier.

One size fits all! This is the storage you need for loads big and small. Most car top carriers flap in the wind when they're not full, creating loud noise, working their way loose, and damaging the material.
