If the active life is for you and your vehicle you will need all the help
you can get to make sure you enjoy your relationship on and off the road.
For the sporty driver, it will not do to just keep your sports gear,
fishing gear, or camping gear in the passengers side of the car. The
solution is a multisport car rack that is versatile enough to meet the
demands of your adventures and activities.

1. Know Your Vehicle

First of all   you have to know what you need and what you have before
buying a car   rack. Car racks are extremely versatile. The type of rack
you purchase   depends on the type of vehicle you have. There exists four
types of car   racks that work with most vehicles.

2. Rooftop Racks

These are the racks that attach to the roof of your car. These types of
racks are sometimes factory installed. It can either attach to the gutter
of your vehicle or to the clamps inbetween the frame and the door. With
this in place you can now place additional carriers on the rack
customizable to your needs.

3. Trunk or Deck Rack

Mounted using hooks and straps, these are attached to the hatchback or
the car trunk. Some don’t consider them as pure racks so they may be
called mounts at times.

4. Hitch Racks
These attach to your car receiver standard hitch and may be preinstalled
or installed separately.

5. Spare Tire Racks

Spare tire racks attach to a device that interfaces with the spare tire
attachment. It may attach to the spare tire itself too. This makes for a
snug, secure fit. Always consider the height limitation of your carport
and your garage. Garages usually have enough room to accommodate most car
racks. Keep in mind that this will add height to your vehicle so your car
may not be able to fit in the same underground parking areas you are used
to. Many adventurers forget that their stuff is on top of the vehicle.
This has led to quite a few losses of equipment among rack owners. If
your garage cannot accommodate such top-mounted racks, you should choose
a rear or tire mounted rack instead. Cars will usually do well with a
hitch rack while SUVs do well with tire racks.

6. Know Your Activities

Your choice of rack also depends on your activities. For activities such
as biking, or skiing, you will want a basic rack that can be configured
to accommodate more gear. Among them, the hitch rack and the rooftop rack
are the best when it comes to versatility because they have a modular
build that means you can configure it according to your needs. If you
need to transport a kayak or surfboard, however, or rooftop racks are the
only way to go.

7. How Much Can You Shell Out?

Carefully consider what you need before you make a purchase. Many people
succumb to buying whatever looks shiny. Never salivate over features
that, frankly, you do not yet need. Plan for your future needs but leave
out features that you are sure you do not need. To save yourself a great
deal of pain and cash, always consider which rack you will often use. The
best way to go is to buy the basic attachment mount and then add the
accessories later. Since these attachments are modular, you will not have
a hard time removing and re-attaching accessories you may need.
