Recommended Roof Rack and SkyBox for 2015 Mini Cooper


I just bought a 2015 mini cooper 2 door hardtop and I need to get a roof rack that can carry luggage for 3 people around 150 lbs or heavier. Please let me know which models should I get. There is nothing on top of my roof. I also want to get the carrier on top of the roof rack. Is that added weight to the maximum weight allowed for the racks?


Expert Reply:

Yes, there is a rack available for your 2015 Mini Cooper and it is the SeaSucker Monkey Bars Roof Rack - Vacuum Cup Mount - 48" Long # 298-SX6000B. This option uses vacuum cups rated for 210 lbs pull strength each to secure the rack and your roof box to the Mini.

For a rooftop cargo carrier I recommend the Yakima Skybox 12 rooftop cargo box # Y07334.

You will need to check the owners manual of your vehicle to determine the capacity of the roof and be sure not to exceed this figure with the weight of the cargo you plan to carry.
