Hi guys. I'm a photographer and I'd like to add a roof rack to my car. I'd like to put the larger things that aren't expensive and sensitive there like big light stands, crates of accessories, pieces of plexiglass.
I know of Carryboy and Thule. I looked at the Carryboy site and they don't look they have much to offer in roof racks. I only see the tray, and I am having trouble imagining myself putting longer things on it. I guess I can maybe make a way with some high quality straps (not those bungee cords).
Thule on the other hand I'm sure has everything in racks. I do hear they are super expensive though.
Any thoughts and insights that you guys have to share? Do you guys know where I can find pricelists online?
P.S. Please don't give me "hindi bagay roof rack" or "get a pickup or SUV nalang" replies, and I don't care if my car isn't so bagay with a roof rack
Go to banawe and shop around the different stores there. There are lots of roof racks, generic (like those with Horizon stickers, etc.) which are cheap but does the job well. They have crossbars that would suit every vehicle. If you don't have a roof rail, then they have those that would fit your gutters. Prize range is from 2500 up depende sa tawad mo. They will also offer a rack bag that could strap to your rack. mas safe luggage mo with the bag.
I think a Thule roof box and bars with the foot pack will set you back around 50K if you get the real large ones. Best to pass by the showroom and inquire.
Quality is very good though, our Thule roof box is already 15 years old and i still use it up to now on our Altis; the car runs on LPG so when i travel with the kiddies for more than three days, trunk space is an issue. Only issue is the gas strut which holds the cover up is already busted.
