Utilizing Your Small Vehicle for Big Adventures

Having a small vehicle doesn’t mean you can’t prepare it for big adventures. There are many ways to utilize and enhance your vehicle’s cargo space. Whether you are operating a hitch or taking advantage of your roof space, the Auto Truck Depot has many options to help you out.

One of the primary methods used to gain more space in a small vehicle is with a roof rack, like the Thule Traverse. A roof rack usually consists of two crossbars that run across the top of the car. The crossbars are held in place by feet, which are connected to each corner of the roof, usually in the door’s frames. The crossbars sit a few inches above the vehicle and provide space for objects to be placed without scratching or damaging its surface. Large objects such as boats or ladders can be placed across the roof, and the crossbars provide an anchoring point for objects to be strapped down to.

There are many accessories available to enhance the storage capabilities of your roof rack even further, such as the Yakima Loadwarrior. The loadwarrior cargo basket helps secure items for transport on top of the roof and out of the interior of your vehicle, allowing more space and comfort while driving from place to place.  The open air platform allows easy access to tie down materials and gives you added flexibility with items that wouldn’t normally fit in an enclosed compartment. The large steel constructed frame fits on top of most vehicles and has custom wind fairing for extra noise reduction. The universal attachment system fits most round and square factory crossbars. The accessory bars act as crossbars for gear specific racks and give you added security when transporting more expensive and personal items. It was developed with on-the-go type people in mind, allowing a quick and easy load that maximizes the utility of your car.

If more security and protection for your cargo is necessary, the Yakima cargo carriers, SkyBox or RocketBox series may be a better option yet. These boxes are like an extra trunk for you roof, and they simply attach to your existing roof rack to expand your vehicles storage space. They come in various sizes for your specific needs, and you can be sure your gear is safe with its solid carbonite design and push-button, locking security features.

Another option, especially useful if you plan on carrying bikes, is to increase your vehicles carrying capabilities with a hitch. Even if your vehicle is too small to pull a trailer, you can still utilize this feature to carry bikes, cargo racks, and more. And better yet, you can use this feature along with a roof rack to turn your vehicle into a cargo-hauling beast. There are so many ways to utilize your small vehicle for those big adventures, and the Auto Truck Depot is here to help.

When You Need More Space

Cargo carriers are still in demand despite the size of your truck or sport utility vehicle. If you're considering a family vacation to a far away destination, it always helps to have a little more space for the kids. Various tools or other truck accessories alongside the many cases of luggage need to be secured in one place to maximize your interior space, as well as protect these items.

 Many times, however, these carriers can be placed on the roof of vehicles to provide more room inside. One of those cargo carriers includes the Rocket Box. The durability of the Rocket Box cargo boxes is unmatched, and is weatherproof to handle all kinds of outdoor conditions. Its sleek design will keep drag to a minimum, and will remain secure with a key lock system and push button opening. The lock system is the best in security, and will keep your valuables protected as if you were carrying them in your own pocket. It also adds a quality look to the top of your vehicle — after all, those old Big Mac-style carriers are too boxy and a pain to assemble and place on your roof. 

Check out the Rocket Box at The Auto Truck Depot. Whether you are carrying precious cargo inside for a much needed vacation, and prefer the extra storage outside for your luggage, or making a move to a new house, the Rocket Box is a great option.
