Anyone know what weight the OEM side rails that come factory fitted on the Scorpio is rated for? For carriers that are attached to the OEM side rails the maximum weight will be limited by the capacity of rails or the carrier, which ever is lower.

Hiker Roof top carrier for the scorpio-09012010048.jpg

Hiker Roof top carrier for the scorpio-09012010049.jpg

Here are some pictures.
I've dismantled it and will use it only when the car is packed. It is very easy to remove but will need at least 2 people to remove and mount (align) because of the height of the vehicle.
This particular carrier from Hiker can only be mounted if you have ski rails.

Wow triedeverything, that looks quite nicely blended with your Scorp!
Since I do not have side rails in my Scorp, I am unable to go ahead on this, as the "direct mounting on rain channel" types that I have seen lack aesthetic appeal. I am trying to look around for something good, though.
Congrats on your buy!

@tet:

That is a very sleek carrier. I prefer an expedition style one so I am planning to go in for this Ajanta model. They have a version that attaches to the side rails too.

Hey thanks 4x4addict for the link! Hope I get this in Bangalore too, at my budget of around 5k.

@mooza:

They will definitely have an agent in the Bangalore. Call the mobile number listed on the Ajanta website and they will give you the contact for the Bangalore agent. This is how I found the agent in chennai.

@mooza:

If you like the Hiker one, I am sure they will have a version that can attach to the rain channel as well. Generally all models have the same carrier but the mounting cross beam is different depending on if you want to attach to the side rails or rain channel.

Nah, groceries are important - they always go INSIDE the car. This is for the people who come along as baggage

Where's triedeverything...man, ask to borrow something and people just disappear!

Default Ajanta Fazer Roof Rack

Ajanta has just launched a nice Roof Rack that looks like the OEM Ford Endeavour type. I am planning to get this for my Scorp. Some Pics attached.

Not a good idea, the edges of the carrier help to securely hold baggage in place and not let it move around, as then the handles of the bag/suitacse becomes the weak link.
Try it once and you dont want the bag skidding on your roof... Not a good idea, I think.

Default Re: Hiker Roof top carrier for the scorpio

What would be the overall height increase after installing a rooftop carrier (say Hiker). Why I am asking this is there is a height limitation in the parking slot (81 inches /206cms, ie 3 inches extra over the Scorpio height)
