5 Common Myths About A Ski Car Rack that are Completely Wrong

Upcoming ski vacation?

Trying to learn more about ski car racks?

No clue where to begin? Don’t worry. Below are five myths to avoid when looking for a ski car rack.  We believe these tips will save you time, money and energy. 

Myth #1: A Ski Car Rack can only attach to car with a rail system.

Thanks to Otium Outdoor, this myth is no longer true. In the past, if you owned or rented a car, you would have needed a cross rail or side rail system demonstrated below to put a ski car rack on your car.

With the Otium outdoor travel ski car rack, traveling with your skis with a regular car that you owe or rent has never been easier.  This Otium technology allows you to attach the lightweight ski rack to your car using a strap system that runs through your car’s door frames.

Myth #2: If You Want to haul your skis with a Rental Car it must have a rack system. 

Similar to myth 1 in that technology has changed the face of ski carriers, technology has advanced so that you can quickly and easily attach a ski carrier to your car even if you don’t have a rail system on your car top.  

With a light weight Otium ski rack, you can pack their ski rack with your skis, pull it out at the airport once you land and put your skis on the top of the car saving time, money and space.

Myth #3: Buying a Ski Carrier is your only option.

Myth #4: All Ski Racks are created Equal

Do not be that person who thinks all ski top carriers are the same when it comes to quality and durability. Many manufacturers exist in this area. If you think you can get by with a cheap option, you are playing with danger as you drive down a highway at high speeds.

Myth #5: Zero Weight Limit Exist on a Ski Car Rack.

Weight restriction do exist on your car and the carrier itself. Every ski carrier and car roof has a recommended weight limit. If you ignore such standards, you are asking for unpleasant issues as you cruise down the road.
