A roof rack is a great way to carry more cargo when you’re taking a trip in your SUV. We want you to get the most out of your rack, so we’ve put together a few suggestions for you.

You never know when a storm will pop up, so be sure your cargo is weatherproofed. A sealed cargo box is one solution, or you can tightly cover the load with a plastic tarp. Wind can blow the cargo right off the roof if it isn’t tied down properly. You’ll want to use cam-buckle straps, with two straps along the length and two across the width.

Before you load up your SUV, bring it by Mercedes-Benz of Fort Wayne in Fort Wayne, IN, and let us check it out for you. The peace of mind of knowing that your vehicle is in good repair makes it easier to enjoy your trip.
