Hi Folks. i have taken some road trips before but never with anything on the roof of my SUV which has an installed roof rack with horizontal bars in both directions.(?) (is that you describe a roof rack with cross bars.?)
I have some gear like a folding table, and folding chairs and perhaps some stuffsacks full of bedding (in black plastic bags for protection )
I went and purchased a small roof top carrier 12 cubic feet..canvas.. the smallest one i could see.. It is way bigger than the amount of material i have to fill it however..
as a new person to all of this, after being recommended to thoroughly fill the car top carrier to bulging..for best travel purposes..would i still be able to use this car top carrier partly full, but well strapped down..
Has anyonne used one of these things?
any practical tips?
any winter tips?
any and all help and comments would be gratefully received.
