Roof rack for a buggy


I'll have a buggy soon that probably bigger than my car. My car is not recommended to use to tow even a light trailer. Hmmm.....roof rack! Problem: my car is a 2011 Prius. I have found a couple of roof racks that should work without drilling the top. I'm just not sure if the height of the crossbars would be enough. Mostly what I'm finding is 4" clearance.

Question to those who rack their buggies: which rack do you use?

Keep in mind this buggy is going to be big. Probably around the size of an Apexx. Also, I will be doing some highway driving. 70-80 mph. Any recommendations are appreciated!

Or a big,thick blanket, roll the windows down, and tie off :lol:

Are you putting the buggy on the prius or the prius on the buggy? I'm just trying to get it in my head so I can offer a suggestion:spin: I once saw an ant hauling a potato chip that had to be 10 times his size and that is what I'm seeing here. I'm just sayin.

all custom fabbed bro ... think outside of the box lol

Call me this weekend and I will fill you in on what you need to build. Mine is a bit of over kill. Now that I have done it I know what I would have done different so you can benefit off my build.

Also Todd has me beat with 2 bugs on his roof ... def check out his setup

ahhh, looking at it zoomed in on a larger screen I see a bit better. Yeah, looks like I may have to have it fabbed up here. I can't see shipping something like that :lol: I'll call u this weekend for some ideas and I'll get with the buggy builder to get some measurements.

I have a Honda Fit and use a Saris Bones 3-slot bike rack to hold my buggy, so it sits behind the car. Basically, I pull the wheels off the buggy and lay the rear axle across the rack and fasten it down (the buggy sits upside down). To prevent it from swaying forward and back, I use bungie cords.

The only downside is that it makes accessing your hatch a pain when you've got it stowed back there.

Now that's a hell of an idea. My main concern to all of this is that the roof of the Prius is sloped up top. Might make things tricky. I thought about having a class 1 hitch put on it and having a rack fabbed up but having a hard time finding a hitch receiver that will work for the Prius with a 300# tongue weight rating. Probably overkill but I want to be sure there are no failures at highway speeds.

I've gotta say................. You have some HOOJ kiwis to come on here with this bunch, talking about your Prius. It is at least a manly color right. Not light blue? A cool black one with custom wheels whispers past me in front of the school every morning.

I'll back Dino up if anyone teases him about his Cube. Right beside the driveway is a Chevy dually with a big block in it.

I wonder if you can get 30 mpg with this mystery buggy undoing all the wind tunnel testing your car went through! :saint:

Dark gray metallic with 20% tint and wheels getting ready to go to powder coat. Going to get smoked lenses for the lights too. Might go with a hitch and rack on the back, should still get over 40mpg highway depending on if I leave wheels on the buggy.

Ok, yours sounds like its a cool looking one then. :smilegrin:

I did a quick google search and saw that they do indeed make hitches for it. :wow:

Vegas.com is just a mile away from me. I'll see if I can get them to set a line on getting 40+ with the buggy on top at highway speeds. :rolleyes: :lol:

On top you'll be lucky to get 34-35. I found class 1 hitches all over the place, I want a class 2 though so I'm going to check with a local shop next week on my day off. I really want 300 lb TW. I don't want to risk a mishap at 75mph on the interstate.

fuel economy is why I'm considering a rear mounted hitch rack. Less interference with air flow over the car. Still sacrificing some mpg but not nearly as much. I'm figuring a 10% loss. I average 45 mpg at 75-80 mph on the highway so figure 10% loss for rear mounted rack I'm still in the 40 range. Granted this is simply theory, but I'd bet a years wages I'm above 35 up to 40 depending on roads.

I just re-read that, buying a Prius made me do math...noooooooo!!!!!!

They do make a trailer hitch for the Prius. It is a class 1 hitch for $150.00. Installs without any drilling or fab, just bolt it on. it is a class 1 hitch and will be more than strong enough to haul a small flat bed trailer like in the link below.

Trailer Hitch:
http://www.juicedhybrid.com/SearchResults.asp?Search=prius+r...

Flat Bed Trailer from harbor Freight $299.99 (4x8 size, 1000 lb capacity)
http://www.harborfreight.com/automotive-motorcycle/trailer-a...

Total price out of pocket - around $465.00 (with the purchase of a couple tie down straps and such) and you have a trailer that can be used for other things as needed, easy to load the buggy and you don't risk damage to the Prius while you drive past the gas pumps, just bolt it all together and go, no modifications, no fabrication, no hassle.

Harbor freight has another trailer rated at 800lb which would also be strong enough for a buggy, cost is $190.00

I'm betting 20% loss (at least) with the full buggy on top running 75 mph. I'm all in.
