Is there anything else I need to remember?
Remember that having excess weight on your roof rack can result in the vehicle handling differently and it can also reduce fuel economy. Loose items on roof racks can cause serious accidents, injury and even death and it is your responsibility to ensure that everything has been securely attached before embarking on your journey. Recheck all of the straps and attachments throughout, and make stops regularly to check that everything is still safe.
Finally, it is important to remember that you are carrying extra cargo, for example, there have been many incidents where people with bikes on the roof have driven into something too low. Furthermore, if you are carrying at the back of your vehicle, remember to check that nothing is too close to your exhaust, as heat from this can melt rubber and plastic and cause permanent damage.
