Yes! Your Nissan with roof rail and cross bars can easily hold a roof cargo system with a few simple steps. Roof rails are a great foundation for your adventures as they allow you to load cargo outside of the vehicle, letting you free up cabin space for all of your passengers.

The team at DeFOUW Nissan is here to assist you in making the most of your Nissan SUV, including tips and tricks for cargo hauling.

How to Install a Nissan Roof Rack

The roof rack on your Nissan is designed to accommodate various cargo hauling accessories. To install cargo storage items, begin by attaching crossbars to your roof rails using the provided screws.

Installing a roof cargo basket is a tool-free process—simply align the basket mounts with the crossbars and secure them using the provided screws. Available accessories include: cargo baskets, sky boxes, forklifts, and more!

Tip For Loading Cargo Using Nissan Roof Rack

Whether you’re in need of more space inside your vehicle or require additional room for larger cargo, utilizing Nissan roof storage is an excellent solution. However, before loading your cargo, it’s crucial to double check the security of your connections. Additionally, consult your owner’s manual to ensure that you follow the weight capacity guidelines. When it’s time to load your cargo, make sure to distribute it evenly and securely before hitting the road. We recommend cargo nets or ratchet straps to keep your cargo in place.

Once on the road, it is important to drive cautiously. With additional height and weight on your vehicle it is important to avoid sudden movements and follow all traffic guidelines.
