Your questions answered

  • How much weight can you put on roof racks?

    Some things to consider when working out your vehicle’s load rating, as all 4x4 vehicles have a different roof ratings. You need to know the load rating of your vehicle you can find this your vehicle’s owners manual.

    Secondly, there are a few different load ratings you need to understand. There are on-road and static ratings for all vehicles, as well as off-road ratings for vehicles that can travel off-road.

    • On-road refers to the load rating of a vehicle when traveling on a sealed road.
    • A static rating is the load rating of a stationary vehicle, and is necessary if you’re using a rooftop tent for example.
    • The off-road load rating refers to a vehicle traveling on an unsealed road that does not contain a surface protection layer. Sometimes, manufacturers will list the load ratings in the vehicle’s Owners Manual, however, you can calculate the off-road load rating yourself using the formula provided in your product fitting instruction.

    Lastly any accessory you attach it to your rack you must also include the weight of these in your cargo allowance.

    It is very unsafe to overload your vehicle. The “she’ll be right” approach is not appropriate in this context, and failure to follow the load ratings in each circumstance could result in damage to your vehicle, potential loss of your load, voiding warranty or insurance or cause traffic accidents. It’s illegal to overload your vehicle.

    To get started calculating your vehicle's load limit, you'll need to make a note of your vehicle's load rating from your vehicle's owners manual as well as the Rhino-Rack Roof Rack system you have installed on your vehicle. Once you have this information you can begin by entering your vehicle details below.

    4WD storage or cargo draws allow you to customise organise your equipment in drawers. They save an incredible amount of space, but also add weight which is something to consider. Australian made is always a priority at BAW Automotive. We use Department of the Interior who will custom make drawers to suit your chosen application and vehicle. It’s important to remember the weight carrying capability (or GVM) before deciding the right storage solution, and your fridge size.
