Load Carrying

ROOF RACKS A range of roof rack systems is available as Land Rover approved accessories. For further information about roof rack systems approved for use with your vehicle, and advice as to which system would suit your requirements best, please consult your Land Rover retailer.

The maximum roof rack load must NEVER exceed that given in ‘VEHICLE WEIGHTS’, page 245.

WARNING

  • It is recommended that Land Rover approved load-carrying accessories are used wherever possible.

  • Only carry loads on cross-rails - do not attach loads directly to the roof bars.

  • Use webbing straps (preferably with a ratchet clamp) to secure loads to cross-rails - do not use elastic or ‘bungee’ straps.

  • All loads should be evenly distributed and secured within the periphery of the rack.

  • Position the roof rack and load so that it does not impede the opening of a sunroof.

  • Any roof load will reduce the stability of the vehicle, particularly when cornering and encountering crosswinds.

  • Driving off-road with a loaded roof rack is not recommended. If it is necessary to stow luggage on a roof rack while driving off-road, all loads MUST be removed before traversing side slopes

  • Check to ensure that the roof rack and load are secure after 30 miles (50 km) of any journey.

WARNING

To avoid the risk of personal injury or death, DO NOT permit children or any other person to travel on the roof rack (or any access ladder) whilst the vehicle is in motion.
