You may think that a commercial van would be an ideal form of transport for a family holiday. What better way to get to from home to Dover then over to France than a commercial van? Think of all of the wine that you could bring back. All of that space in the car roof rack rear that will allow for red, white and rose wine will make the trip worth while. But what if you want more space for things like clothes? Well other than upgrading the van for a larger size, which could cost you more than you wanted to pay there is another way.
A roof rack provides you with the basis to get some extra space that you might need. Factory fitted or one bought from a local motoring supply store, each will enable the used of such things as roof boxes. This is a cost effective way of getting additional space in a van that you have out grown. The extra space that a roof box allows will provide storage for other things that you can’t quite fit in the vehicle.
Of course you don’t have to get a roof box to get the most of the roof rack. Many commercial van users have the roof rack to transport things such as ladders and other tools necessary to do their jobs. It can also be used for carrying timber that you would not necessarily be able to fit into the back of the van. Any materials will need to be securely fastened to the roof rack to ensure it is legal and safe to use.
It’s not only commercial van users that benefit from a roof rack but also people off on holiday. As well as the extra space for wine that the roof rack and roof box combo can offer the roof rack can also be adapted to sit push bikes on top. This is ideal for anyone who likes their biking holidays yet doesn’t want to cycle all the way to the country that they are heading to. You must remember that this will increase the height of your vehicle, so low bridges and multi story car parks might be worth avoiding.
