Finding Your Perfect Car Rack Mount Style

You’ve spent a lot of time and money to find the right gear for your outdoor excursions. You’ll want to ensure that equipment gets where it needs to go so you can spend less time worrying about gear and more time having fun. Car racks let you haul outdoor toys while freeing up room inside your vehicle.

Before choosing a car rack:

  • Consider what you need to carry. Do you need to carry bikes, stand-up paddle boards, and/or skis? How many of each? Also, think about all your activities throughout the year and plan accordingly. Choosing a more versatile system could save you money, especially if you add new gear over time.
  • To determine the appropriate car rack for your vehicle, consult the vehicle fit guides provided by major car rack manufacturers. These guides will assist you in finding racks that are compatible with your sedan, SUV, or pickup truck.
  • Are your vehicles equipped with roof crossbars or a receiver trailer hitch? If not, what size will you need to get installed?
  • Equip your outdoor adventure with Sun & Ski Sports' diverse range of car racks and accessories. Our collection covers all your transportation needs, whether you're heading to the slopes with skis or to the trails with bikes.

    Types of Car Racks

    Here is a brief overview of the options available for hauling your gear.

    • Hitch bike racks: Hitch-mounted bike racks are designed to fit into the receiver of a trailer hitch. Installing a hitch receiver on a vehicle that doesn't already have one is an additional expense to keep in mind.

    • Roof racks: Roof racks are considered the most versatile as they allow for the customization of accessories to transport various outdoor toys, such as kayaks, surfboards, snowboards, bikes, and cargo boxes. They provide stability, keep gear out of the way, and do not block access to vehicle doors. However, it should be noted that they can be expensive and may require lifting gear overhead, which could pose difficulty for certain individuals.

    • Cargo boxes, baskets, and bags: Cargo boxes are rigid containers that can be attached to a roof rack to store and conceal equipment. They are particularly suitable for skis, snowboards, and bulky items (except for bicycles or boats). These boxes provide an enclosed storage solution for loose or irregularly shaped gear but can create wind resistance and noise while transported.

    • Trunk bike racks: These racks attach to trunks or hatches using straps and hooks. They can hold one to three bikes on support arms. They are simple to use, affordable, and lightweight. However, they only accommodate bikes and restrict trunk access. Additionally, bikes may sway or collide with each other while being transported.

    • Truck bed bike racks: Truck racks consist of internal rails or support bars that can be easily installed in a truck bed to securely hold bikes. Additionally, there are racks designed for transporting boats and cargo boxes.

    • Spare-tire bike racks: These are affordable and lightweight options for vehicles with exterior spare tire racks.
