Choosing the right soft rack system is as easy as thinking ahead and predicting what you will be using it for. Just driving yourself or your one friend to the beach? A single soft rack is probably just fine. Do you load up the car with as many friends as you can before taking off? You should probably get the double (and maybe an extra set of straps just in case!). If you have any confusion of what to get, give us a call and we can help you figure it out!
