If you're driving a Volkswagen, you've got a vehicle manufactured by a company dedicated to being the number one carmaker in the world and currently succeeding at that self-imposed goal. Known for creating stylish, economical and high-performing automobiles, VW also offers a quality line of roof racks capable of transporting all types of cargo from skis, snowboards and surfboards to bicycles, kayaks, canoes and just general materials like luggage, boxes or other packaged materials.
All Volkswagen models have the capability of supporting a genuine VW roof rack installation except for the Cabriolet. The starting point for all other models, except the Tiguan, is a base rack or cross-bar set, depending on the specific model. The Tiguan, because it comes from the factory with roof rails already installed, simply requires the addition of carrier bars to form the base for the variety of genuine roof rack attachments available.
Most VW models will accept any of the roof rack attachments Volkswagen offers, with a few exceptions. Many of the different car models are capable of using the identical rack as others. The Kayak Holder is an example. It fits all models from the years 1991-2014. Preview our detailed offerings for your particular car or van model to see what's available. Roof rack attachments are available for the transport of:
Skis and Snowboards
Luaggage or general packaged cargo
The few exceptions that exist regarding specific units available for particular models include the Routan, which accepts a Canoe Carrier Attachment or a Soft Luggage Carrier not offered for other models. The Touareg requires a special adaptor for the ski and snowboard holder. This attachment includes the base carrier bars and fits only Touareg models (2004-2008). Most VW models will also accommodate the Barracuda Frame Mount Bicycle Holder.
