Would this be safe for a 4,000 mile round trip?

Asked by Aug 05, 2016 at 01:08 AM about the Subaru Crosstrek

Question type: General

Hi,

I have a Subaru Crosstrek 2014 and would like to use a ROLA 59502 2" Steel
Cargo Carrier to carry camping equipment on a long road trip.  In addition to
this, I am curious if it would be safe to also use the roof rack to carry two
bicycles (one is an Extracycle tandem bike and the other is a BMX bike)?  

The trip I am going on is about a 4,000 mile round trip.

I dont see a problem. Just strap everything down. Thats exactly what they are made for.

Use and follow the manufacturers instructions and capacity limits on the cargo carrier and you should be fine.
