Re: New Roof Rack

Just curious, there are a lot of racks on the market, what makes these so special? Went on the web site but found only Land Rover racks???

Hi Bob,

My opinion on why these are special:

A - Looks good (follows the roof line)
B - Height (increases the vehicle height by 4.75" - my current Prorack crossbars increase it by around 4" so imagine if I bought a "rack" to add ontop - I don't think I would get in any Underground Car parks / Garage so I'd have to keep taking it off when not in use)
C - Designed to use existing vehicle mounts
D - Integrates well with the vehicle (aerial, tailgate etc all function fine)

I believe Urban have stopped making these as they didn't sell too well in the US. That's why it's not on their website.

Have a look at the eBay auction here (now ended due to GR44ND!) http://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/e11030...AMOTORS%3A1123

What I believe we should do is either approach Urban to do a group buy and ship them in a carton here, or approach an Australian company to build one the same (or similar) with a set of committed buyers lined up.

Kev.
