Myth #1: Roof Carriers only come in hard shells.

You probably remember growing up with your parents or friend’s parents driving a station wagon with a hard roof top case placed on top. Your memory is good but like many things in life, technology has changed greatly in the car top carrier area. Nowadays many different options are available ranging from your traditional hard top to lightweight soft top options that fold down for easy storage when not in use. 

A large automobile is not need for a roof top carrier.  Carriers now come in all different shapes and sizes for almost any car make and model. 

Myth #2: A cross rail system on your car is required to use a roof top carrier.

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

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

Myth #4: All Car Top Carriers are the Same.
