Cargo & Luggage Racks See all Cargo & Luggage Racks

Cargo Boxes and Luggage Racks let you bring everything with you. The first choice you need to make is if you want a cargo box, cargo bag, or cargo basket. Each has their own advantages and disadvantages, but in as few words as possible: cargo boxes are best for skis & boards, and anything you need to keep dry. Cargo baskets are ideal for offroad vehicles, and cargo bags give you the capacity, without breaking the bank.
