Roof Rack/storage

Post by carbuff105 » Mon Aug 08, 2011 3:34 pm

I am driving out east next week and I don't think I can fit all my stuff in my car so I was looking at getting some kind of roof top storage. I do not want to spend $300-400 on Yakima or Thule roof racks so I was wondering if anybody has something cheaper that works that I could go pick up. I was looking at this:

But I don't know how it will work considering I have a sunroof which is half broken and won't hold weight even if it wasn't....but any Ideas????

Thanks

You can use that roof top carrier. I would suggest that since you are worried about the sunroof. Put up something like a thin piece of plywood on the sunroof. big enough to cover the opening and serve as protection for it.

You can put an aftermarket roof rack on the neon like my wife did to her buick. But they do cost a lot.

I craigslisted my entire roof rack for my car. Cost me like 200$ or so to do it, including the bike trays and the fit kit. Works great, just make sure it's tight so it doesn't walk from the wind!
