    Roof Rack

    Any special things I should look for in a roof rack that might differ from a DF?

    Vehicle: '97 RAV4 with OEM roof bars.
    Bike: TW-Bents, elegance.

    It looks like a standard fork attach rack should work, and the wheelbase is short enough that I don't think it will be an issue. Anything else I might have to consider?

    I'm thinking either the Thule Domestique or Yakima Forklift at the moment.

    Thanks.

    Hitch mounted draftmaster.

    A bit pricey, but well made, and very easy to use.






    Obviously not a recumbent in my pics, but it's designed to work with recumbents

    You could fall off a cliff and die.
    You could get lost and die.
    You could hit a tree and die.
    OR YOU COULD STAY HOME AND FALL OFF THE COUCH AND DIE.

    Hitch mount is out of the question. I need something that will fit with the (motorcycle) trailer attached. I can, in a pinch strap the bikes to the trailer with the motorcycles, but that really risks scratching the motorcycles.
